    Hi that same thing happened to me and I watch a video on U tube ,I think it’s on Paige 45 on how to put the crucible back or the heating element right,I had everything right Except the black silicone part that you do not put in the alcohol I had it in the back Word there is a little indentation on it that belongs in the front so when I ever Closed it properly, check it out it might help a lot since then I have not had one problem. Please let me no if that helped

    Amen, bro! If not an iso wash, I at least do an iso cloth wipe of the lid.s inner surface every crucible or two (even if sometimes just a paper towel wipe-down in-between crucibles), plus I’ve found a small bristle brush to be extremely useful. Clogged upper SS screen / lid holes definitely will kill the MV1‘s performance in my experience. Keep ‘em clean, boys and girls!

    I have not found I need to be quite so Martha Stewart clean with the crucible lids and cleaning in general. If not in this thread, among one of the other threads, I've read where some of you clean the lid with each finished load using ISO. I don't do it that often.

    I generally load as fully as I can (learned via experimentation), which is just under the lip of the crucible. After finishing a crucible load, I brush off the bottom of the lid, sometimes also blowing through it, and do the same with the crucible itself. Then I load and repeat as needed.

    At the end of the day, I do take apart the heatsink/mouthpiece assembly and soak that and the crucible parts in ISO. I'm sure it's strain dependent - on one of the strains I now have there is more oil collected on the lid bottoms - but for me, this has worked well.

    I have gone about 1 week with no cleaning of anything other than the crucible lids. Just did a deep clean last night for heatsink parts with ISO after I reclaimed all the built up honey to the concentrate pad. (That was a nice few hits too I should say). Put it all back and got the same consistent performance.

    Can you please tell us how you reclaim the material? I would like to try it.

    thanks!

    I can’t believe that after everything that I have been through when I finally got my Vape to work I dropped both of my cubicles on the tile floor and they both cracked and shattered so is there anyway that goes can mail me one and I’ll pay the difference in price

    Sorry Mary, I only have the 2 that came with it, 1 for flower and the other is for concentrate/spare... if I had another I’d send it to you.

    Try sending a PM to Patrick and Bud... couldn’t hurt!

    Good luck!

    you know how after a while you have used the vape it builds up that sticky honey looking gunk? So all I did was take a flat tipped tool / VC's pick tool if you have works also - and I just scrape and collect what I can and transferred it to the concentrate pad - got about a half bb size worth of reclaim - fired that puppy up and got about 3 draws with vapor. Otherwise - collect it to wax paper or some paper you can take it off of to use later. Before I used to just collect it all on the corner tip of a rolling paper and then just throw it into a conduction vape with a little flower added and blast it.

    Honesty, I think I've cleaned the mv1 about one and a half times lol since I've had it , and it still performs solidly and looks fairly unused. I've used it everyday since I had it.

    Now that I think about it...I've clean the mini grinder more than I have the mv1 and I don't really clean that either...wipe and blow like 4 times. But the crucible for the concentrate...that's pretty apparent I've used it hahah it stained and burnt and wouldn't soak off ...but underneath is creamy clear.

    Thank you very much for your kind reply and information. I am looking forward to trying it!

    I did a bit of an experiment last night where I filled my crucible and then emptied that amount in to my crafty and topped with the oil pad. then I refilled my crucible with the godfather og, same grind, and compared the sessions. to try to make it fair, I looked at the ghost preset temps and set my crafty for the same temps. 2 draws at each levels 1, 2, and 3.

    I did it again today, this time with lemon seedman haze and 3 draws each at level 2 and level 3 with the comparable temps on my crafty.

    here's my abv after today's experiment. 818hdu27adzowtu7.jpg
    one thing to note is how much lighter the ghost's was, meaning there's probably a draw or 2 left that went unused while crafty was spent.

    and the verdict is- I enjoyed my crafty session more. the flavor and the clouds were better. I can't really compare the effects since I was already lifted from one when I went to the other.

    with that being said, it was close. and I have only had my ghost for less than a week and a crafty for over 2 years, so any draw techniques with it are 2nd nature. I'm just starting my days off where I can finally really spend some time experimenting with technique for the ghost. there's also the unknown of the accuracy of the ghost temps and how close they are to their stated temps, which could change results. until the app is released anyways.

    more practice, and the app, could change the results of this experiment pretty quick. I see so much potential and am still enjoying it, and I have no intention of selling it back to Bud. the fact that I enjoyed my crafty more isn't a knock, I love that vape and will likely get another one when this one inevitably dies.

    This is nice. I have not once been able to get anything close to being as evenly vaped as this. No matter what temp I use, it always leaves green on the outside. With every type of draw style imaginable. After 4 draws, I get about 3 whispy hits and then its done. I turn it up higher, no vapor what so ever. I've put about 100 crucibles through by now. I have a huge pile of abv and it looks like I could throw it in my sublimator and get something out of it. Hope the app fixes this.

    Edit: I just loaded a couple crucibles to get pics to upload, but now I'm super high and forgot how to do things. I'll be back..

    Hi guys I'm having a similar problem that others have experienced on this forum. I am only getting 1-2 small vapour hits on all heat settings and getting really burnt flower. The MV1 is charged to full, i thought i read somewhere that by removing the battery it could potentially solve the problem. I have had a look through the thread but was unable to find it.

    If anyone has any suggestions to get the most out of this vaporiser i would appreciate the tips, obviously with the understanding from reading that when the app is released it should hopefully solved the problem.

    Of course Ghost will take care of you, of this I have no doubt!

    Now please, Mary, do everything vaping related, or at least when the crucible is exposed, over carpet or earth... :)
