How to Fix a Disposable Vape Pen

Do you have a disposable vape pen that's not working? Even though the quality of disposable vapes has increased, some still have issues. The most common problem is that the pen stops firing or loses performance. You might be an unlucky user with a pen that just won't hit or fire.

What Is a Disposable Vape Pen?

A disposable vape pen is a self-contained device that uses a cartridge filled with oil or other cannabis-based product. The cartridge is usually prefilled with oil or other cannabis-based product. The pen has a battery, a heating element, and a mouthpiece. 

Disposable vape pens are a great way to consume cannabis oil or other cannabis-based products without having to deal with the hassle of maintaining a vaporiser. They are easy to use and require no maintenance. 

Tips for Fixing a Disposable Vape Pen

Here are some tips to get a malfunctioning disposable vape pen working again:

1. Tap It

If your disposable vape pen is not working, it could be because an air bubble is trapped in the cartridge or around the coil. This prevents airflow and prevents the pen from working properly. To fix this, tap or flick the side of the disposable pen where the cartridge is located. This will free up anything blocking the airflow and allow the pen to work properly.

2. Remove Debris from the Mouthpiece

The airflow to your device may be blocked if there is debris in the mouthpiece. This is common with disposables, as they can easily pick up lint or fluff in pockets or bags. First, check to see if anything is blocking the airway. If there is, use a toothpick or safety pin to try and remove it.

3. Check the Battery

The light on most disposables will indicate if the battery is running low or needs to be replaced. If the light is not on, the battery may be dead. If the disposable is not rechargeable, not much can be done. If it is rechargeable, the light should come on when plugged into a charger.

4. Ensure It's Not a Dud

It's possible that you got a bad device from the manufacturer due to poor quality control. This could mean damaged internal parts, a non-working battery, or a faulty coil. If this is the case, you may give up on the device and get a new one.


If your disposable vape isn't working, there are a few things you can try to fix it. However, if these methods don't work, the vape is likely just a bad unit. In this case, you can try contacting the store where you bought it or the manufacturer to see if you can get a refund or replacement.

There's no guarantee that you won't get a faulty device from any manufacturer. Still, you're more likely to get a quality product from a brand with a good reputation for quality control. We only recommend brands that we trust to produce quality devices.
