    Resistance changed after cleaning

    As I cleaning one of my iClear 30, I disassemble it and left in the basin full of water (warm water). After 20 mins or so I dry all parts and reassemble it, dry burned and put on my SVD. The resistance reading showed 4.5 ohm !! I was a bit confused and repeat the cleaning again and this time SVD reads 4.1 ohm.....!! I checked my other iClear 30 and they gave me 2.1 ohm readings from SVD which is as they supposed to be.

    What can be the problem in this clearo?
    Did I just screw up the coil head?
    Is there any chance I can fix it without replacing a new coil head?

    Cheers

    did you try and fire it then test it again? my SVD does funky readings sometimes but after i fire it usually comes good.
    If that doesn't work try a bigger hammer!

    You may have nudged the wire causing it to short or made the dual coils make contact somehow, which would also short and give a hectic reading. Recoil it or you risk your battery getting damaged.

    I did try fire it at 4.2V and I also tried on other iClear 30. The reading on that particular clearo is kind of stuck at 4.1-4.2 ohm....not sure why this had happenned. One thing I did notice was the one reads at 2.1 ohm firing at 4.2V gave similar taste if I fire the one read 4.1 ohm at 5V.

    Luckily I bought some spare coil heads with the Clearo. These heads seem to easy to screw up themselves.

    You could just try putting your syringue tip down in there while firing it and nudge it a little to neaten it all back up.

    yeah. it sucks. but it happens. wick moves or shrinks when cleaning, making and air gap between it and the coil. that spot gets too hot and pops during the dry burn.
