Here are some simple fixes and methods for diagnosing the cause of your vape pen’s malfunction.
You’re eager to take that first puff from your vape pen because it’s been a long day. The moment arrives – and your battery doesn’t seem to be working.
Here are a few reasons why your battery is not working properly, as well as tips to fix whatever the problem may be.
Why is My Ooze Pen Not Working?
There are a number of potential causes for your vape pen to not be operating properly. Some of these causes are easy fixes, such as oil setting and getting stuck in your cartridge. Some are more technical, such as problems with the battery, atomizer, or coil.
Your vape pen is probably not actually broken most of the time. More often than not, once you identify the issue with your vape pen, you’ll be able to troubleshoot.

Reasons and Solutions
Here are a few explanations for why your ooze pen won’t function with each of the solutions.
Is It On?
Although it may seem incredibly obvious, make sure your battery is turned on first. If you have an Ooze battery, click the button five times quickly in the space of two seconds without pausing. When you press the button, a light will shine around it and the atomizer will be powered if your battery is on. Nothing will happen when the button is pressed if the battery is dead.
In addition to offering an adjustable voltage, twist batteries also have a preheat mode. The button’s 15-second preheat mode is activated by pressing it twice.
Is Your Connection Perfectly Clean?
Your cartridge may occasionally leak a small amount of oil down through the coil and onto the battery connection due to the repeated heating cycles it experiences. Even the tiniest particle of debris can disrupt the connection and make your button flash. Thankfully, there is a quick fix!
To turn it off, unscrew your cartridge or charger from the battery and press the button five times. The battery connection point and the cartridge’s bottom should be cleaned with a cotton swab. You can either use a Res Wipe from Ooze Resolution or a q-tip dipped in 91% isopropyl alcohol to clean the ooze pen.
Put the wipe against the battery connection with the scrubber side facing the dirt and the q-tip pressed firmly against it. When using alcohol, be sure to let the battery and cartridge fully dry before screwing them back together and turning the machine back on.
By far, this is how batteries malfunction most frequently. This issue can be completely resolved by routine battery cleaning. Every time you replace a cartridge, make a habit of quickly cleaning your battery. This will significantly lengthen the lifespan of your vaporizer.
Is Your Cartridge Coil Making a Connection?
Your coil is a tiny, round piece that is located at the very bottom of your 510-thread battery. Unfortunately, there are times when you’ll get a bad cartridge from the dispensary that won’t work with the battery’s heating element.
Check to see if the round centerpiece is perfectly straight and aligned with the battery connection. If the coil is off-center, use a toothpick or bobby pin to gently push it back into place. Be careful! Pushing too hard can cause further damage to the cartridge, so make sure you pay attention to what you’re doing.
Is the Battery Damaged?
The ground or water, or both, did you drop your battery? Unfortunately, if the internal connections have been tampered with, they might be permanently damaged. It might be time for a new battery if nothing else is working.
Depending on usage and maintenance, a vape battery can typically last for many years.
Vape Pen Atomizer Not Working
If Your Atomizer (heating Element) is Having Problems, Or You’re Seeing An Atomizer Error Message on Your Mod, It Can Be Due to a Number of Reasons.
- Check for debris: Check for debris before getting into the nitty-gritty of your atomizer. Use a damp cloth to clean the pen.
- Over-tightening: A common cause of atomizer problems is over-tightening. If you tighten the atomizer with too much force, it can sever the connection with the device. There might be a problem with the center pin (510 connectors) if the connection is sound but the device isn’t functioning.
- Chipset problems: The chipset, an electronic component that regulates elements such as wattage, temperature, and other parameters, may also be at fault. The chipset must be replaced if it is damaged.
- Shorting issues: Your coil may be shorted if it comes into contact with the tank’s sides. Check to see that your atomizer is in the center and not touching any of the sides; if not, adjust it.
Oil Amounts Appear Low in Cartridges
The oil level in a vape cartridge may occasionally appear to be much lower than you anticipated when you purchase it. Your oil may have settled to one side if your level appears to be low. Use the hair dryer method described above to apply heat to the cart’s sides to solve this issue, and then check to see if the oil level is higher than it was.
Burnt Or “off” Flavors from a Vape Pen
Sometimes when you vape, you’ll experience a “dry hit” or a burnt one. A dry hit indicates the coil’s wick is losing moisture. When the atomizer starts burning the wick instead of vaporizing the cannabis oil, it creates a burnt flavor. After the wick burns, the damage is irreversible, so you must replace the coil.
Use a lower wattage and a lower temperature setting on your vape pen to prevent burning your cannabis oil and harming your coil. A higher setting may cause the atomizer to vaporize the oil too quickly, burning the wick. Additionally, pulling less frequently reduces exposure to heat. If you take large draws, you’re more likely to burn your oil.
Allowing the wick to saturate with oil by letting your vape pen rest in between uses. Another method to increase the lifespan of your coil and prevent burnt wicks is to develop the habit of cleaning and priming new coils.
Over-tightening Vape Pen Threading
Over-tightening your vape pen can sever the connection between the battery and the cartridge. The 510 connection pin on the vape pen needs to connect with the cart to work. This vital connection can be harmed if the vape pen is over-tightened.
Additionally, the rubber O-rings that seal the threading can be damaged by overtightening. The oil may start to leak and drip out if these O-rings break.
Fluid Leaking into the Vape Pen Mouthpiece
Overtightening may be the reason your vape pen is leaking. If you store your vape pen on its side rather than upright, this could be one of the other possible causes. Storing your vape sideways or upside down when not in use can cause oil to leak into the vaporization chamber. The atomizer can’t vaporize the oil quickly enough to match the amount that is present when you go to take a drag. As a result, your mouth is drawn into the extra oil.
How your cart is filled is one more thing to be aware of to prevent leakage. Leakage may develop if you unintentionally get oil into the central tube while refilling. Fill up at a 45-degree angle to prevent this. Avoid adding too much oil to the tank as well. In order to help create a vacuum, leave an air bubble at the top of your cart.
If you’re still experiencing a leaky pen, you might consider choosing a higher voltage and temperature setting. By increasing the power, you can prevent an oversaturated coil by having the atomizer vaporize more oil with each pull.
Other Problems With Vape Pen Cartridges
It’s possible that a clogged cart has compromised your airflow if your vape pen appears to be in good condition but doesn’t function when you pull the trigger. Check to see if the airflow holes on your vape pen are open in order to unclog your cart. Cleaning out any debris will be necessary if you notice that the airflow holes are blocked.
If there isn’t any leftover material but the airflow is still being impeded, the device’s design may be to blame. Try reconstructing the vape pen in a way that lets the airflow holes go unobstructed.
