How to Fix the “Check Atomizer” Error on Your Vape?

If you are reading this, then you just possibly had one of the most annoying warnings on your mod you can ever get: Check Atomizer! This common error can really drive you nuts as your mod won’t fire your atomizer. Some mods will even tell you ‘No Atomizer‘ on the screen while you are pretty sure you just screwed one! So you need to figure out what your regulated mod actually means with it…

Basically your mod is trying to tell you that something is wrong with your atomizer. Luckily it is easy to fix in most cases. So let me list below the most common problems related to your ‘Check Atomizer‘ and ‘No Atomizer‘ notification and how to fix it.

1. Bad coil connection 

If you are using a sub-ohm tank, then it is possible that your coil was inserted incorrectly, or it was just not tight enough. So simply re-insert it.  Sometimes it’s just as simple as that!

2. You are creating a short

If you are using a rebuildable tank, make sure your build is not touching the cap or any other metal piece of the deck.  Also make sure your coil is in good shape and there are no breaks.

3. You have a faulty tank or coil

Sometimes there is nothing wrong with your mod and the issue well might be in your tank. So try to screw a different atomizer in. If your mod is now able to fire the new atomizer, then you know who to blame! For sub-ohm tanks with pre-made coils, sometimes, you just get a bad coil. Try using a different one from the pack.

4. There is no connection

Clean the 510 thread of your mod and the 510 pin of your mod. Maybe there is just  something stuck in between. If this does not work, maybe the lack of connection is related to your coil.

For sub-ohm tanks, check that the coil’s base is connecting to your tank base. Do this by pulling the base of the coil out very slightly, then re-assembling the tank.

For rebuildable atomizers (RDA/RTA/RDTA) check that your post screws are still screwed tight to the coils.

If you have tried everything already and it still does not work, then I can only wish you bought your mod from a reliable brand and vendor. Check the warranty card in the packing, you might be entitled for a replacement .

As usual, if you have any question about this problem or any other matter vaping related, please feel free to leave a comment down below. I will try to reply it asap!

Vaping is not only a profession for me but also a passion. I quit smoking thanks to vaping almost 3 years ago. I helped many smokers to switch to vaping since as I am convinced vaping is a much healhier alternative to tobbaco smoking.
