SkyStar Defect - Loose Tank Connection

Hi I've had my SkyStar for a few months and it's become unusable, the whole top plate containing the 510 threaded insert is so loose that it almost never recognizes when any atomizer is screwed on top. It almost seems like it's about to fall off the mod itself even though I have never dropped it, and have only used a top fill tank so I've probably only unscrewed a tank from the mod may 10-20 times total. I attached some pics to show the issue.

It looks like there are two vertical bolts inside the mod that fasten the top plate to the rest of mod and they are probably just loose. I would love to do some self repair but it appears like the only way to access these internal pieces requires an extremely tiny star/torx head screwdriver which I don't have. I'd probably opt for buying a cheap screwdriver before a new mod though so if anyone has any insight as whether this top plate can be tightened again that'd be much appreciated!

  • Unfortunately you will have to wait till they get back from the Chinese New Year and Corona Virus epidemic before anyone from Aspire can directly contact you. You might want to send an email to and maybe someone is monitoring emails there. I am not sure, but as far as I know, they are not being able to return to work yet. Everyone is being told to stay at home. Please do not duplicate the post, one time is enough. You have provided them with more than enough info at this point. Try the service email and see what happens.
  • I Fixed it. No need to dissasemble the whole thing! (wich I did but in the end wasn't necessary #-o )
    Just take your tank off, you will see the round plate with the big aspire logo. In the middle there is the connector hole. If you look closely, you can see 2 very tiny slots at the top, just above the treaded part. Place the corner of a small flat screwdriver in that slot and just pop that thin round plate off. under the plate you will find 2 screws that you will have to tighten. You will need a T6 Torx screwdriver or bit for that. Then you just press the plate back in place and you are good to go!

    At this time it's a waiting game as China needs to get back to some sort of normalcy. I believe that it will take a while .
