How to Check for a Dead Atomizer:
Atomizers, like any mechanical part, will eventually fail. We can take care of our atomizers to ensure a longer life, but eventually your atomizer will be no longer useable. How do you check to make sure your atomizer is dead? There's a very simple method you can try to test your atomizer. First, you need a Voltmeter, sometimes referred to as a VOM (Volt – Ohm Meter). You will use the Ohms setting of the VOM to test your atomizer. If you do not have an auto ranging meter (it automatically senses the ohms range needed), set the dial on the meter to the lowest ohms setting you can. Some meters will even make a sound for an open circuit, meaning no continuity. No continuity is not good – it means that your atomizer is dead. If you get readings from the mid twos to mid threes, your atomizer is still good. If you get a very high reading, it most likely means that the atomizer is about to die.
To do this test, place one probe of the meter on the threaded portion of the atomizer. Then, place the other probe on the center where the little hole is. Look at your meter and see what it reads. Using the above numbers, you will be able to tell the condition of your atomizer. This is a quick, simple test. If you do get a very high reading, you still may be able to get some more use out of the atomizer by thoroughly cleaning it to get the crud built up on the coil off, which causes the resistance to go up. There are many different ways to clean an atomizer, and that is covered in another section. Hope this helps!
