3. This will also pop out the oven screen from the bottom of the vape 

4. Pour some cleaning solution into a container enough so that items placed in it would be covered. Take the oven screen, mouthpiece, and concentrate insert and cleaning solution for up to a half hour. While they’re in there stir them every so often to keep the dirt on the move.

5. Also, remember to take the oven lid chamber from the concentrate insert. Whatever you do never, ever soak your oven lid. It can cause all kinds of problems so just trust us on this one. 

6. After that give a run over all those difficult to get areas with your pipe cleaners, paying special attention to little corners and edges. Then just rinse and towel dry and you’re done.

Cleaning Heat Chamber

7. Now to clean the heating chamber you will need to take an alcohol-soaked swab and really get in there with the corners and hard to reach places. This should sort out any lingering residue. Following this set the vaporizer to its highest heat setting and let it run through a few times. This will scour any leftover alcohol residue. If it’s not cleaned away adequately, that alcohol can leave a strong unpleasant taste the next time you use your vaporizer. When you’re all done give yourself a nice pat on the back and congrats on a thorough job cleaning your Pax 3 vaporizer.
