How To Fix a Burnt Coil in A Disposable Vape

  • Soak the Coil
  • Coil Cleaning
  • Drying
  • Prime Coil
  • Placing back to position

Now let’s discuss deeper how each step gonna be performed;

Soak The Coil

In the very first step, you need to remove the coil from the Vape cart and put it into emerging hot water. This will loosen the residual parts and make it easier for the next steps.

Also, your dab pen needs to deal with external air, which makes sometimes enters dust and clogs up into it. Hot water soaking will release those specks of dust and clogged-up particles away.

Coil Cleaning

After you soak the coil in hot water, add some lemon juice and vinegar into that water. This will neutralize any rust or vape juice left in the coil.

This is important to clean the coil completely before you do anything to fix it. Also, the burnt particles that are making a burnt smell while you are vaping should be removed this way.


Take the coil out of the water. Place it over a cleanly dry and flat surface. Putting over a towel is recommended, obviously in the air. Actually, you need to dry it in the air and the towel will soak up all the fluid from the coil.

Prime Coil

Soak your coil with a small amount of the e-liquid you use. This will save the coil from burning and you will not get any burning smell or burnt taste from the vape flavor. In detail the steps should be as;

  • Drip 3-4 drops of e-liquid into the coil after taking it out of the main vape body.
  • Replace the tank cart.
  • Put the screws in their place. As you are working with disposable vapes, assemble them properly with appropriate glue placement.
  • Now at starting to smoke again with it, the nicotine voltage should be at its lowest. You can increase it gradually.

Placing back to position

At the very end, you gotta place the coil into your vape in the position it was before. You have to do it carefully so that, you don’t make any damage to your vape cartridge.

If you have come so far, a few safety cautions you to need to keep in mind before trying these steps:

Quick Precautions:

  • Disposable vapes are made for one-time use. As soon as the battery or e-liquid is finished, you can through the vape pen away.
  • While the vape is not made for the opening facility, it can damage the device if you give extra pressure while opening it.
  • While priming, drop the exact same e-liquid that you are using, into the coil. Otherwise, you may get a mixed weird flavor.
  • Sometimes, the vape tastes burnt after charging; the case is probably not a coil burning. Maybe the battery is damaged or burnt for over-voltage.
