stopping smok TFV12 from leaking

Is your Smok TFV12 leaking? It happens – sooner or later, even the best tank leaks. Still, with a little maintenance, common sense, and effort you can prevent leaks and extend the life of your tank – which saves you money. We all like money, right?

Check the Coil

If you’re seeing your delicious e-liquid on the wrong side of the tank, or you’re getting sticky fingers, then odds are you have a leak. Don’t panic. Instead, check your coils.

Start by checking to see if your coil is burnt. A burnt coil can cause leaks because it’s not properly vaporizing the e-liquid when you fire up your device. If the coil is burnt, replace it with a new one – and your leaking problems should be solved.

If your coil isn’t burnt, it could be loose. A loose coil can allow juice to leak out of the tank, so this is something you’re going to want to fix. Thankfully, this is really simple – just make sure its screwed in securely. If not, adjust as necessary.

Rubber Seals

If adjusting the coils doesn’t solve the problem, consider removing the coil completely. This will allow you to check the rubber seals. If those appear damaged, they’re probably the culprit and will need replacing.

Inspect the Glass

This one should be self-explanatory. If you’re having an issue with your SMOK TFV-12 leaking, check the glass for cracks and damage. These things can be delicate, and even a hairline fracture can lead to issues.

If you spot a crack, replace the glass and resume vaping.

Remember the Airflow Holes

When filling the tank, you should always be sure that the airflow holes are closed. If the airflow holes are open during filling, the juice can flow straight through – which is not something we want to happen.

Adjust your Wattage

Tried all of the above and you’re still having leaking issues? Try upping the wattage on your device.

Similar to the previously mentioned burnt coils, a coil that’s not getting enough wattage might not be getting hot enough to vaporize all of the liquid. This unvaporized liquid can then leak.

Cleaning and Assembly

Sometimes, the best solution is to just take everything apart, give it a good cleaning, and then put it all back together.

Reassembling your unit could solve the SMOK TFV12 leaking problem – it’s entirely possible that something has come loose beyond what we’ve already adjusted with the coils and rings.

And while you’ve got the device taken apart, why not try giving it a good cleaning? We’ve got a tutorial for that you can check out. Cleaning and reassembling the device might solve your leak problem – but if it doesn’t, a good scrubbing isn’t going to hurt anything and is likely to make your next tank last longer and deliver better flavor when you vape.
