hello all, I just recieved my therion 166 in the mail yesterday and it has been working pretty well.  I am having a problem though. if i do some chain vaping on it, its like the temp gets stuck at whatever my max temp is set to and then when i try to hit it, it just says temp protection and I get no vapor.  I also have it set to show temperature not temp protections when it hits max temp, so im not sure why its showing that message instead of my curret temp.  If i then turn my temp up to 600f (have max temp set to 500f) and hit the fire button it shows at being at well over 500f even minutes after i have used it.

 I have it set to 70w and 500f preheat is 95w for 1 sec using steam engines's 316L file (I initially had it set to 50w and 420f with the same results).  the wire im using is 3 core ss claptons from advanced vape and i have them spaced. the build is coming out to .12. 

Anyone have any advice on how to fix this problem?

Hi, could you post a few screen shots...

1.) Wire profile/settings screen
2.) Mod Tab screen
3.) Device Monitor while firing & having this issue...make sure you have 'Power', 'Power Set', 'Temperature', 'Temperature Set', 'Cold Ohms', 'Live Ohms' checked off...

The 'Temperature Protected' message can be turned off under the 'Theme' tab...

Looks like it is kicking out of TC into Power mode...I would check all my connections really good..very tight screws on deck..be sure 510 on both atty & mod are clean...maybe with some iso alcohol...at top of screen, go to 'Options>User Interface. & select manufacturer..it will give you more settings in the 'Mod' tab...need to see what everything else is set at...you will also be able to load battery curve .csv as well....below is the .csv for 2 LG HG2's...

When you changed the temp protected to show temp, are you sure you uploaded to the device...I just changed it on my Therion 166 & it doesn't show the message if I change it to show temp...

I have checked my screws they are as tight as I can get them without stripping the grub screws.  I did clean the pin on my avocado 24 a few days ago but will do so again as well as the pin on the therion.

Yes I did upload it to the device.  It normally does show my current temp when at max temp, it is only when the device gets "stuck" at max wattage and i press the fire button does it show temp protection.

If you look at the screen shot you posted of Device Monitor, you can see the live ohms, while firing, are fluctuating, which usually means there is some sort of connection issue. I would double check you screws as well because metal can expand & contract & cause the connection to become loose...along with cleaning

Ok I will tighten my screws and clean my pins, and see if that fixes this.  Thank you again for your help and the csv.

And when you get a chance, what I was asking for, as @Wayneo so pointed out, was a screen shot of the wire profile/settings for the 316L in the 'General Tab'...power,punch, yada yada...[biggrin]

Does the Therion 166 come with only the default Evolv thermal settings?  See post #6 here...  looks like your 166 has default Evolv thermal settings.....  just wanted to mention... [smile]

@VapePanther You posted profile 1 which looks good for TC. Your Device Monitor showed you were using Profile 2.

Please Device Monitor while firing showing Profile 1
