    Question Aspire Nautilus bubble, no vape

    I recently got an Aspire Nautilus (my first Nautilus) but have not been able to use it yet. The problem is that when drawing on the mouthpiece, it bubbles and gurgles but produces no vapor.

    • I read somewhere that to clear it, blow through the tube. OK it does clear it (forcing juice out the air hole), for around 1 to 2 seconds before it starts bubbling again.
    • I read somewhere else that a Nautilus came from a batch in which an o-ring that was ribbed on one surface was upside down. I've had a bit of a look at the makings and cannot see any o-ring, though I may not have taken it apart to the level that is required.


    How can I get the Nautilus cleared and working consistently?

    Try turning the wattage up a little if possible? Failing that, perhaps try a new coil.

    Make sure the coil is screwed into the base tight. Sounds like it could be loose.

    Strip it back and look for any place the air can enter the tank section,
    you're drawing air in from the tank and not through the air control section,
    there are only two places.. the top that screws on and the seal around the bottom of the tank,
    also ensure the atomizer section has an O ring and is tightened down properly.

    id go with a new coil. At the very least youll know its not the coil if your still having probs and it might be an instant fix

    I checked. It was so tight I had to use pliers (v. gently) to start it unscrewing.

    I had a careful look, and it all seemed to be sealed up tight..

    That did the trick! I don't know what was wrong with the first coil, but the 2nd seems to be vaping just fine. Thanks.
