    How to fix leaking KFL

    Been pissing me off.
    How to remedy the centre post of Kayfun from leaking onto firing pin in device.
    I have tried to tighten screw > fully tightened. Juice is constantly slowly leaking >worried that juice will come into contact with battery????
    Can i remove centre screw and bind thread with thread tape etc.

    I used plumbers tape on the centre pin of my Noble 1, worked a treat. Can't see why it wouldn't work on the kayfun.

    Cheers

    Remember when the only trolls you had to deal with were under a bridge, and trying to eat your goats?

    are your insulators still up to scratch? I had a leaking kfl before and replaced the worn insulators with new ones and never had a leak since

    ???? Insulators ! do you mean the little plastic pads under the the kanthal /screw terminal blocks between the deck.
    The KFL is 2 weeks old .

    Do you mean leaking out the fill hole? Or out of the air hole?

    No ,it is leaking from the threaded centre post connection, that screws onto your device.

    Hmm very strange, is it the real deal or a clone?

    Usually if it over wicks or gets air in from a bad seal on the tank or from the chimney into the top cap it will come out the air hole.

    To come out there it must be getting through the deck insulators somehow?

    Centre pin is probably not tight enough and juice is in the bottom. Unscrew the base and clear it out



    edit: It was supposed to start at 6:40. scroll to that time in the vid you'll see what I mean

    Yes that's right, and there is also a round insulator separating the centre pin from the 510 walls. If its 2 weeks old it shouldn't be doing that. My leaking kfl was an old one where the insulators were bent and chipped from the previous owner.
