Short circuits can happen in any device that uses electricity, including your vape. Short circuits are an abnormal connection that happens when things aren’t working correctly. A short circuit is not good because it can cause sparks and possibly catch fire. If you notice any of these signs in your device, there might be a short circuit.
Read on to learn how to check for a short circuit and what to do if you find one. A short circuit usually isn’t permanent and can be fixed with some troubleshooting and maintenance. Check these five things before using your Novo Vape next time to avoid a potential short circuit again:
Check the Battery
The first thing to check is the status of the battery. Does it have any signs of damage? If so, you should maybe charge it or replace it. If you see any discoloration or corrosion, that’s not a good sign. A damaged battery can be the source of a short circuit. If the battery is charged and not damaged, that’s your first sign that a short is not the issue.
Check the Coils
If the battery is not the issue, then the next step is to check the coils. If you see any signs of damage, such as dents or discoloration, that might be the issue. If the coils are in good shape, then you need to check if they’re screwed in all the way. If they’re not, that might be the culprit. If the coils are in good shape and screwed in fully, then it might be the wick. If the wick is discolored or too dry, that might cause a short. If everything looks good and the coils are screwed in correctly, the next step is to make sure everything is screwed together correctly.
Check the Mouthpiece and Chamber
The next thing to check is the mouthpiece and chamber. Does the mouthpiece have any discoloration or dents? If so, you might want to replace it. If the mouthpiece is in good shape and you’ve tested the coils and connections, it might be the chamber. There are two main reasons the chamber could be causing a short. First, you need to make sure that the chamber is screwed in all the way. If it’s not, that might be the issue. Second, the chamber could be too wet or discolored. That could be causing the short. If everything looks good and is screwed in correctly, you might want to clean the chamber. There could be residue or buildup that’s causing the short.
Check the Battery and Atomizer Housing Together
The next thing to check is the battery and atomizer housing. Does the battery have any discoloration or signs of damage? If so, you might want to replace the battery. If the battery is in good shape, you need to make sure the battery and atomizer housing are screwed in correctly. If everything looks good, then there could be an issue with the connection. You might want to try cleaning and tightening the connections. If you’ve done all of this and the short circuit persists, then the issue might be with the atomizer housing.
Fixing a Short Circuit in Your Vape: Why Does It Smell Like Burning Plastic?
If you’ve checked everything and are still experiencing problems, then the issue could be a short circuit. The first thing to check is to make sure that the connections are tight. If they are, then there could be an issue with the atomizer housing. If everything looks good with the atomizer housing, then there could be an issue with the power source. If your device is plugged into the wall socket and you smell burning plastic, there could be a short. If you smell burning plastic, unplug your device immediately.
A short circuit occurs when there is an abnormal connection in the electrical system of a device. This can lead to a fire if it is not identified and resolved quickly. To avoid this, it is important to conduct regular maintenance on your devices. This will help you identify potential problems before they become serious issues. If you notice that your device is short-circuiting, do not attempt to fix it. Instead, unplug it immediately and contact the manufacturer for help.
