How to Fix a Burnt Coil in a Disposable Vape

Fixing a burnt coil seem intimidating, but with the right approach, it’s quite manageable. Understanding how to disassemble your device and replace a burnt coil can save you from the unpleasant experience of a burnt taste and extend the life of your vape. This guide will walk you through the necessary steps, from gathering the right tools to cleaning and priming your coil. By following these tips and techniques, you can restore your disposable vape to its former glory.


How to Fix a Burnt Coil in a Disposable Vape



Disassembling a disposable vape may seem daunting, but it’s quite straightforward. This step is essential to access and replace a burnt coil. First, gather necessary tools: tweezers, a small screwdriver, cotton swabs or Q-tips, and rubbing alcohol. Having these ready will make the process smoother and more efficient.

Start by removing the mouthpiece. Most disposable vapes have a removable mouthpiece that can be pulled out or twisted off. Some devices may require unscrewing or prying it open with a tool. Set the mouthpiece aside safely. Next, locate and remove the battery cover. This step varies by device; some have screws while others are snapped into place and can be pried open with a tool. Gently remove the battery from its compartment, being careful not to damage it or other components.

After removing the battery, access the tank or cartridge. If it’s removable, unscrew it from the battery. For integrated tanks, use a tool to pry it open and remove it. With the tank or cartridge removed, access the coil. Using tweezers or fingers, carefully pull out the burnt coil from its compartment. Now, it’s time to replace the burnt coil with a new one and reassemble everything.

Cleaning the coil is crucial to fixing a burnt coil and maintaining performance. Buildup on the coil can lead to a burnt taste and reduced efficiency. Regular cleaning prolongs the coil’s lifespan and enhances the vaping experience. Disassemble your disposable vape to access the coil for thorough cleaning. Rinse the coil with warm water to loosen any buildup, avoiding hot water that can damage the coil. For tougher buildup, soak the coil in a solution of equal parts white vinegar and water for about 30 minutes. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to gently scrub off remaining residue, being careful not to apply too much pressure to prevent damaging the coil. Alternatively, soak the coil in IPA for 30 minutes, then rinse with warm water and let it dry completely before reassembling your vape.

After cleaning or replacing a burnt coil, prime it with e-liquid to ensure proper wicking and prevent dry hits. Drip a few drops of e-liquid onto the wicking holes (small openings on the coil) until they are visibly saturated but not overflowing. Drip e-liquid directly onto the top of the coil to ensure full saturation. Reattach the coil to the tank, then fill the tank with e-liquid. If your vape has fill holes, use them, or fill directly into the tank by removing the mouthpiece. Allow the tank to sit for a few minutes, letting the coil fully absorb the e-liquid.

After reassembling the vape, turn it on to check if it functions properly. If the reassembly were successful, your vape should work normally. However, if it still doesn’t function correctly, consider taking it to a professional repair service at an store or purchasing a new device.


Troubleshooting Burnt Coils: Easy Fixes

Dealing with a burnt coil can be troublesome, but there are a few remedies you can try to potentially fix the issue and improve your vaping experience. With these tips and tricks, you can make the most of your disposable vape and savor every puff.

  • Letting Your Vape Rest

Set your disposable vape aside for a few days to allow the coil to cool down. Letting your vape rest for a few minutes allows the wick to absorb more e-liquid, reducing the chances of a dry hit.

  • Wattage

If possible, lower the wattage or power setting on your disposable vape. High wattages can lead to quicker coil degradation and burnt tastes. Avoid using a high-wattage charger if your device is rechargeable.

  • Avoid Chain Vaping

Take short breaks between puffs to prevent the coil from overheating. Chain vaping, or taking rapid consecutive puffs, can lead to burnt coils.

  • Prime the Vape

For disposable vapes with access to the liquid chamber, add a few drops of e-liquid directly onto the coil and let it sit for a few minutes to ensure saturation.

  • Adjust Your Puffing Technique

Take shorter, intermittent puffs to give the coil time to cool down between uses.

  • Store Upright

Keeping your disposable vape upright helps the liquid flow towards the wick, ensuring consistent saturation.
