Pax 2 Not Charging

Let’s start with a classic bummer: your Pax 2 isn’t charging. Before you go all willy-nilly, you should check a few things. First, ensure the charging cable and dock are in good working order. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that get overlooked!

If your cable and dock are A-OK, try cleaning the charging contacts on both the device and the dock with a bit of isopropyl alcohol. You know what they say: cleanliness is next to vape-liness! Sometimes dirt or residue can mess with the connection, so a quick wipe-down might do the trick.

If your Pax 2 still isn’t charging, it’s time to contact Pax Support. They’re a friendly bunch and will help you sort out any issues that require more technical know-how. Keep calm and vape on, my friends!

Not Hitting Or No Smoke / Vapor

Well, butter my biscuit! You’ve got your Pax 2 all charged up, and it’s not hitting or producing vapor. Let’s run through some quick fixes to get you puffin’ in no time.

First things first: check your oven. Is your herb tightly packed and finely ground? A well-packed oven helps with even heat distribution, so make sure you’ve got it packed like a champ. If you’re still not seeing any vapor, try increasing the temperature setting. Just remember, Rome wasn’t vaped in a day – it might take a few tries to find the sweet spot.

If you’re still having trouble, it might be time for a thorough cleaning. Use the cleaning tools provided to brush out your oven and clean the vapor path with isopropyl alcohol. A clean vape is a happy vape!

Flashing Blue Light Then Turns Off – Blue Light Of Death

Oh no! Your Pax 2 is flashing a blue light and then turning off when you are trying to use it. Don’t panic – we will tackle the “Blue Light of Death” together!

The blue light typically indicates a connection issue between the mouthpiece and the device. First, give your mouthpiece a good clean with isopropyl alcohol. Sometimes, the buildup can cause connection problems.

If your Pax 2 still acts like a stubborn mule, try using the other mouthpiece in the kit. If all else fails, contact Pax Support for help. They’ll walk you through any other troubleshooting steps or help you with a replacement.

Blinking Red Lights

Are red lights flashing on your Pax 2? Hold your horses, partner! This usually means your device has trouble heating up, possibly for several reasons.

First, check the temperature setting. Your Pax 2 might need help to reach the desired temp if it’s set too high. Try lowering the setting and see if that resolves the issue.

If the red lights continue to blink, it’s time for a deep clean. As with the other issues, isopropyl alcohol is your best friend here. Clean the oven, mouthpiece, and vapor path thoroughly to ensure no buildup affecting your Pax 2’s performance.

Still, seeing those pesky red lights? It’s time to call in the cavalry! Reach out to Pax Support for assistance. They’ll help you troubleshoot further or guide you through the warranty process if necessary.


If your Pax 2 is getting hotter than a jalapeno in a heatwave, it’s time to address the overheating issue. Overheating can affect your vaping experience and the longevity of your device.

First, try taking slower and more relaxed draws. If you’re hitting your Pax 2 like there’s no tomorrow, it can cause the device to overheat. Remember, slow and steady wins the vape race!

If your device continues to overheat, give it a good cleaning. As mentioned before, a clean vape is a happy vape. Ensure no residue or buildup could be causing the device to work overtime.

Finally, if you’ve tried everything and your Pax 2 is still hotter than a billy goat in a pepper patch, reach out to Pax Support. They’ll help you sort out any remaining issues and return your device to its cool, calm, and collected self.


Alrighty, folks, there you have it! We’ve covered the most common Pax 2 troubleshooting issues, from charging woes to the infamous “Blue Light of Death.” Remember, a clean vape is a happy vape, so keep up with regular maintenance and cleaning to keep your Pax 2 running smoothly.

If you ever find yourself in a pickle with your Pax 2, don’t hesitate to contact Pax Support. They’re a friendly bunch who are always ready to help you get your device back on track.  It is an excellent vape.

Now go on and enjoy your favorite herbs with your trusty Pax 2, and remember: keep calm and vape on!
