    First ever genesis rebuild *fail* help and advice needed

    image.jpg

    After watching many videos and reading loads of very helpful forum posts I have finally taken the plunge and built my first genesis atomiser. I used the SS mesh that came with it and 30 gauge kanthal with four wraps. Results as follows:

    - the ohms meter reading was 1.21
    - the reading on the itaste SVD was NON

    The other thing is that when I turn on the ohms meter, it defaults at 1, not zero. So does that mean the actual ohms reading is .21 which could then be the problem? If so, how do I pump up the ohms. More wraps? If not what else could be going on?

    Pics above are of the set up, plus a pic of the box the meter came it. It's from fast tech and this is the first time I have used it.

    Thanks in advance for any knowledge you can impart.
    Cheers

    Take a pic of the coil. That will give us an answer straight away.

    I'll go and grab the camera and try for a macro shot. Stand by....

    Sounds like the atomiser is not making contact with the positive terminal on the SVD. adjust the pin on the ato down a bit.

    unless there is a short, or the svd cant handle the ohms that low?
    did you oxidise the mesh ?

    Thanks Dicko. So I couldn't work out how to adjust the pin, but on the bottom there was a small tiny seal around it. So, I took that off and now the reading on the SVD is 5.5A. But....I was watching one video that warned against taking that rubber ring off..... 5.5 seems high yes? Am I risking the health of everything if I try to fire it??

    My camera battery was dead so waiting for it to charge so I can post a decent pic of the coil.

    Yep, mesh oxidised. Not sure of the bottom ohm range of the SVD... will check the manual.

    My ohm meter is slightly different, but does show 1 (no decimals) to indicate no atty is attached. It doesn't mean that the coil is .21 .
