What settings do you have set in the Kanthal preheat settings?

You mean instead of 0.1 increments starting from 392F for example try 0.15 increments?

No...on the General tab...didn't you load the .ecigproile file into one of you profile slots?

That should work, but you need to make sure your device is on profile 5

Ok..you are going to have to tweak your cold ohms until it works...this is what I meant by playing with it...open the Atomizer Analyzer...note what your coil is reading...click on 'Override Ohms'...enter a value either slightly higher or lower...then click on 'Lock Ohms'...your cold ohms are at 1.27, so try 1.28...if not working, try 1.29...then 1.3...if after a few tries raising the ohms & no luck, then try lower them...be sure to lock the ohms each time so the chip doesn't pick the actually cold ohms again....it may take you awhile to figure whether you need to raise or lower your ohms...but eventually you should feel the preheat...also, turn the temperature in the preheat settings up to about 500 or so. If it is to low, the chip will think your coil is already at temp.

After manually adjusting resistance and locking it do I need to upload settings to device? And then Do I need to lock resistance on device? If I see that the graph shows real temperature this means that I have finally achieved it right? [biggrin]

Yes...you always have to upload to device to get the new settings onto the device....if you are seeing the temp on the graph...then you should have it..locking the ohms in Escribe & then uploading to the device should lock it

Did you also see a slight spike in the power on the graph?

I have started to try that no luck so far but I have realized that after the first fire ressistance returns to its actual value instead of the value I have overwritten locked and uploaded, So this means even if I have found the right value I only works once. Also this is a very painful process to go over after each coil change.. Is there really no easy way to use preheat on Kanthal????

Not yet it only increases to usual value just as before [frown]

The you may have to lock the ohms on the device as well...I have never locked my ohms because I use TC...If you read the previous post in this thread, you would have seen that others had that 1 time issue, but after a couple of times it started working fine. The preheat in the DNA device is designed for TC & this is just a way around that...are you building coils or using OEM coils?

Yeah that is an easy problem. But I am building my own coils which means I need to repeat this procedure everytime I change the coil [frown]

Keep working on it and you will figure it out.  You are trying to trick the DNA to do something it is not, and was not designed to do.  I am a mouth-to-lung guy also and use SS316L pre-made coils almost always but use Kanthal occasionally but I don't need pre-heat thus I don't need the work around.
