How To Fix ‘No Atomizer’ Or ‘Check Atomizer’ Issue?

If you’re a vaper, you’ve probably encountered the ‘No atomizer’ or ‘Check atomizer’ error message at some point.

This can be frustrating, as it can mean your device isn’t functioning properly. This article will show you how to fix the no atomizer issue in vaping.

Why is my Vape giving a ‘No Atomizer’ Error?

Not Atomizer Error

There are a few reasons why you might get the ‘No atomizer’ error message. The most common reason is that the atomizer, or coil, isn’t screwed in properly or contact points are dirty.

Another reason you might get the ‘Check Atomizer’ error message is that the atomizer is faulty. This can happen if the atomizer is old and needs to be replaced.

How to Fix ‘No Atomizer’ Error?

No Atomizer

Thousands of vapers face the “No Atomizer” or “Check Atomizer” error when vaping, but it can be fixed. Let’s find out how you can troubleshoot this problem.

1. Clean All Contact Points

Clean Contact Points

Have you recently replaced your vape atomizer, and after that, you’re getting the “No Atomizer” error? If yes, then there is the possibility that dust is trapped in between.

Dust particles will act as an insulator, and because of that, they will break the electrical contact between the atomizer and mod. So, the first thing you need to do is clean your atomizer contact points.

For this, you will need a cotton swab and some alcohol. Dip the cotton swab in the alcohol and rub it on all the contact points, including the 510 connection and the threads of your atomizer.

Once you’re done with cleaning all the contact points, reassemble your device and try to take a hit.

2. Check If The Atomizer Is Tightly Screwed In

A loose connection can also be the reason for the “No Atomizer” error. So, make sure that your atomizer is tightly screwed in.

For this, remove your atomizer and then screw it back in. But this time, make sure that you’re screwing it tightly.

Once you’re done with that, try to take a hit and see if the problem is solved or not.

3. Try A Different Tank Or Atomizer

A faulty atomizer is one of the most common reasons for the “No Atomizer” error.

So, if cleaning all the contact points and screwing in the atomizer tightly doesn’t work, then chances are that your atomizer is faulty.

In that case, the best thing you can do is try a different tank or atomizer. If you have another tank or atomizer, attach it to your mod and see if it works.

If it does, then that means your previous atomizer was faulty. But if you don’t have another tank or atomizer, then the only thing you can do is buy a new one.

4. Check The 510 Connection

If you’re still getting the “No Atomizer” error, then there is a possibility that the 510 connection is faulty.

For this, you will need a multimeter to check the resistance of the connection.

If the resistance is more than 1 ohm, then that means the connection is fine, and the problem lies somewhere else.

But if the resistance is less than 1 ohm or zero, then that means the connection is faulty and needs to be replaced.

This is a technical issue, and if you’re not comfortable using a multimeter, we suggest you take your mod to a vape shop and have them check it for you.

5. Remove the Battery

If you have tried all the troubleshooting mentioned above steps and still getting the “No Atomizer” error, then there is a possibility that your mod is locked.

Most mods have a safety feature that locks the device if it detects any irregularities. So, if you’re getting the “No Atomizer” error, your mod may be locked.

You must remove the battery and wait a few minutes to unlock the mod. Once the mod is unlocked, try to take a hit, and if everything goes well, the problem should be solved.
