Pax 3 Cleaning Tips

The PAX 3 is one of the world’s most advanced portable vaporizers, but it has a lot of tiny parts that aren’t so easy to clean. Cleaning the PAX 3 vaporizer means cleaning two oven lids, the concentrate insert, the mouthpiece and the oven screen in addition to the narrow vapor path. If your PAX 3 is dirty, you may notice gurgling or might experience a tight draw when you vape. The bitter resins collected in the oven and vapor path may also make it difficult for you to taste the flavors of your expensive designer strains – so cleaning the PAX 3 needs to be a regular part of your vaping routine. These tips will walk you through the process.

    To begin a thorough PAX 3 cleaning, you’ll need to disassemble your vaporizer and get all of your spare parts together. Remove the oven lid and brush out any loose herb residue. Pop out the mouthpiece next.

    Run your brush or pipe cleaner through the vapor path under the mouthpiece to push the screen out of the oven. If you own the full PAX 3 kit, you should now have the following parts ready to clean.

    Cleaning the PAX 3 Oven

    The bottom oven of the PAX is where you’re going to spend the majority of your time during your cleaning sessions. Start by cleaning the oven and the area under the mouthpiece using cotton swabs dipped in alcohol.

    Squeeze most of the alcohol out of the cotton swabs before using them; it isn’t wise to leave a lot of standing liquid in the PAX 3. When both areas are clean, dip your long brush or pipe in alcohol and run it down the length of the vapor path. When you’re done, the oven and vapor path should be clean and shiny.

    You should be able to see through the vapor path easily when holding the PAX 3 up to a light source. If you’ve owned your PAX 3 for a while, there may still be a little discoloration in the oven after cleaning. That doesn’t affect the performance of your device.

    After you’re done cleaning the body of your PAX 3, you need a fast way to get the remaining alcohol out of there. Reassemble the vaporizer, turn it on and let it run for a complete cycle. You may see a bit of vapor and smell alcohol fumes. When the cycle is complete, the alcohol is gone. You’re ready to vape again.

    Applying Mouthpiece Lubricant

    The mouthpiece of your PAX 3 is also the button that you use to control the device – and sometimes, the button can get a little sticky. PAX Vapor sells bottles and packets of mouthpiece lubricant, which is actually food-grade propylene glycol. If you find that the mouthpiece is sticking a bit, put a few tiny drops of mouthpiece lubricant or propylene glycol around the edges to get things moving again.
