My UWELL Whirl S  is not firing when I push the button

This is a surprisingly common issue that customers have and one of the easiest to solve.  The most common reason your UWELL Whirl S is not firing when you push the button is because it is locked. Your device can be locked and unlocked by simply clicking the fire button five times quickly. The UWELL Whirl S is shipped in a locked position to prevent accidentally turning on during shipment. If you click the power button five times quickly it should unlock your device. The LED button will flash to indicate it is unlocked.

The second most common reason your product is not firing when you push the button is because the battery is dead. Simply plug your unit into a Type-C USB charging port using the provided cable and wait approximately one hour for your device to charge.

UWELL Whirl S is leaking

If your UWELL Whirl S is leaking there are a few things that you should be looked at in order to stop the leaking.  Because of the tank & coil design of the UWELL Whirl S, it is an unlikely device to leak but there are a few common issues that could cause it to leak.

A) Over Filling:  Overfilling your tank is the most likely reason for it to leak.  Be sure to never fill your tank beyond the max capacity of the tank as it will leak out the top when you replace your coil.  When in doubt, fill your device to about 90% capacity.

B) Cracked plastic:  If you dropped your UWELL Whirl S, or if it was in a pocket or purse that got bumped around a lot, it’s possible for the plastic pod to have broken. Even if you do not see a crack, if the leak is coming from near the top, it is possible that the plastic has been cracked. The plastic in the UWELL Whirl S can also crack if it is left below freezing temperatures for a period of time.

C) Coil installed incorrectly: The Whirl S has a locking mechanism for it’s coils. If this is not used it may be installed incorrectly. Make sure that the coil is pressed all the way in, and the lock is in place for the coil to ensure no leaking.

D) Drawing Too Quickly:  If you take very fast, hard draws off just about any vaping device, including the UWELL Whirl S, your device will be prone to leaking.  Vaping devices use the power of your inhale to pull e-liquid to the heating coils and mix with the vapour.  If you pull very long and hard on the device it is possible for some e-liquid to be pulled into the airflow chambers.  For all types of vaping, slow long drags are recommended.

E) Device Sitting For Too Long:  You should never store any vaping device filled with e-liquid.  Over time the e-liquid will saturate your coil and begin to leak.  If you are not planning on using your device for more then 24 hours be sure to empty all e-liquid.

F) Flying:  The increased pressure of flying will make all vaping products leak; even the UWELL Whirl S.  It is best to empty all vaping devices before flying on a plane.

G) Over Heating:  If you leave any vape in a vehicle in the summer or in direct sunlight, it could leak.  Over heating the device can cause the e-liquid to expand pushing it out through the coil and out the mouthpiece, causing it to leak.  Temperatures raising expand the size of the molecules of the e-liquid, and if your tank is full to begin with, your e-liquid will have no where to go but to leak out of the pod.

H) Freezing:  Leaving your device in a vehicle or any area under the freezing temperature could cause it to leak.  This is because some parts are plastic can become brittle and are then susceptible to breaking under freezing temperatures.  The ideal temperature for any vaping device is +10 to +25 degrees Celsius.
