How to fix your e-cigarette

99% of the time when an e-cigarette stops working is because the coil is dirty. Simply replace the coil and it should work again. You can also try cleaning it. Take the coil out and run under hot water. Next get a pin and prod into the middle hole of the coil. Try and dislodge any grit. Next shake it and run under water again. Next wipe it with dry cloth or tissue paper. When dry screw back into e-cigarette atomizer. Now it should work again.

What would be the cause for a cigarette lighter not to work after replacement of the fuse in a 05 gmc envoy xl

Maybe it's the cigarette lighter? Try it on another car and if won'r work, simply buy a new cigarette lighter.

How to repair cigarette lighter in car?

(1) it could be a fuse
(2) the contacts could be dirty use a flashlight and look into the hole, is there rust and corrosion? It can be cleaned but you want to disconnect the power first, the other option is to replace it. Some are located where they are easy to replace, others are not worth the effort.

cigarette lighter not work

Those things are not built well, the coil that heats up usually fails. You can get one at autozone etc.

i have a 18 hp briggs engine. no fire with coil wire unplugged. bought new coil, and installed it. it cranked up and ran for about 3 min. and died. again no fire. i left it for about 4 hrs. came back and it cranked up again and ran for 3 min. died again. all this time never plugged wire back on. its driving me crazy

I think that the problem you have is not with the coil.
let me explain : when there is the need to stop the engine simply we push a button or use a lever in both cases what it simply does the coil is grounded to earth this stops the spark supply to the spark plugs . find the cable which connect from the switch on to the coil because this cable
intermits to short to earth stopping the spark going to the spark plug ( replace cable this will prevent the engine to stopping )
