Temp control just went nuts
So I've been using this tank with a DNA 200 and yihi 350 j chip as well as a istick tc


Out of nowhere today when doing my first stainless steel build, the tank freaked out. Subsequently I went about rebuilding it five times with three temp control materials. It's all over the place. The mods are all working fine with other tanks.

I thought perhaps the bottom screw that holds the small screw in piece and the positive post got screwed up but I can't find anything actually wrong wi this. I blew the ring on the bottom part that the chimney slides on to and replaced it. But I can't see anything out of order.

Anyone have an idea what may be causing this tank to freak out right now? I've got my builds down pat with no issue in a ton of other tanks and this one is a very easy build.

I know very little to nothing about temp control builds. I can tell you that the one I got shorts if I screw the deck into the base the full way. Could this have something to do with your problem?

Are you spacing the coil loops for temperature control? It makes a big difference! Other than that you might have a poor connection on the 510 or in the atomizer creating inconsistent resistances.

I hope you are not trying to use Stainless steel for temperature control.

Why not? Ss works fine if you know the temp or have an adjustable tcr.

The HC GT is prone to throw in some parasitic resistance if the base isn't tightly screwed together and cleaned once in a while. Plus its very easy to get the final loop touching the leg with a long spaced coil. Make sure that you can get the tip of your tweezers between them after it's installed and wicked. That can also lead to a hot spot that will give you a burnt wick, regardless of TC.

you probably already tried this but if not...the 510 pin is adjustable. my friends GT-T 2 started to spazz out on him, shorting and stuff so I unscrewed the pin some and it works perfectly. could be the problem. TC needs a solid connection so yeah give it a shot.
