I think you may be right about removing the tiny screen. It does make a big difference. But you’ll probably need to use the concentrate pad to cover the bowl or put a thin screen over the diffuser disc.I believe there is a design flaw responsible for the air leakage referenced recently.
I think the gold mini-screen in the internal air intake portis positioned too high and placing pressure on the molded rubber gasket.
I have found that gentle vape cloud blow into the mouthpiece reveals where any leakage is occurring. Ideally, everything is seen exiting the intake port on the end. Using a mirror or smartphone to watch is best
I am finding greater efficiency using the bit of SS concentrate pad (I used the S&B type, easy to work with) in place of the continually clogging gold internal screen alleviates the air leakage problem.
Anxious to hear if anyone agrees/disagrees after removing the screen. You don't need the SS pad to briefly check this out.

yes, I stuff a small pice of concentrate pad deep into the recess allowing the rubber gasket to seal completely. I believe the design flaw is simlpy not 'machining' the oval recess deep enough. I know the units are cast - the mold needs to be modified. The likelihood of Airvape to fix this is pretty close to nil if they are not called out on this repeatedly by reviewers. I looked for Troy's review without success. Can anyone help me on this?.are you replacing the small gold screen with a piece of the concentrate pad?
That tiny small gold screen next to the bowl that you use the little pick to get out?Junny89, now remove t he small gold screen and give a report, please. I know you deep-cleaned, but if removing the screen solves the air problem, it reaffirms the hypothesis that the rubber gasket was a poor design choice in its current configuration.
Never the less, that bit of S&B concentrate pad (SS and not heavily compressed in manufacture) works like a dream.
So my micro dosing basket and 'gold plate' arrived today. Very cool, works better than my bottom screens which worked well.
Just got my warranty replacement yesterday. Using the microdosing basket and the the new screen at the same time just didn't work well. I'll have to try the basket without the screen. The new screen worked well in Session Mode, in fact it made the legacy work very well in session mode, but yes I had to turn the temp up to the 390-400 range... but that doesn't bother me. The actually vapor was very tasty and the effects were excellent. And after a full session I got some very very dark ABV that was very even. No charring whatsoever....It may be heresy to suggest this, but I think I prefer the performance of the Legacy before the new chamber component mod. It seems to me that I have to really raise the temperature with the mod in place, whereas before, though heat distribution was uneven, I could get better effects at lower temperatures. To each, their own, I suppose, but I haven't found the mod to be that helpful.

...and then one of the two glued on lid magnets fell off...
The magnet isn't anywhere near a heat source. So I cleaned the magnet and the lid area where it attaches as best I could (there was still some glue residue), and then used a dab of classic Krazy Glue, seems to be holding for now...About the magnet falling off, that's odd and very unpleasant, and I'm sorry to hear it. I think I've been very lucky with my unit as it's performed as advertised from the first. I wish you luck with rectifying this!
Good for you man! The AirVape jury decided that my unit was faulty and I am now awaiting a replacement. Hopefully, the new one will be an upgrade and without the flaws with leaking etc.So long Legacy and Legacy Forum, I got a fair trade and got a StickyBrick Jr. for my Legacy and all I had for it. I’m happy with the trade and I hope the Legacy gets used in its new home.
My new unit is performing a little better than the old one. But there is still plenty of air seepage through the lid if I don't squeeze down on the lid. This is unfortunate, because the that vape is fuller, has a bit more flavor when you press down on the lid. While pressing down on the lid is fine in session mode, it's hard to hold the power button and squeeze the lid with one hand in On-Demand mode. And since I like to use on-demand while walking my dog, I don't have a third free hand to press on the lid.Good for you man!

I'm finding SS pads are really effective in general when using with flower. Definitely helped with the Legacy with cooling and cleanliness and finding the same with my Crafty ( like them better than capsules to keep things clean and cool).I ordered a bunch of 3mm glass spheres, I plan on removing all restrictions to airpath and simply using the spheres to filter and cool.
you dropping those down the air intake? Don't you think they'll clog up the black silicone piece? The one that holds in the glass airpath?I ordered a bunch of 3mm glass spheres, I plan on removing all restrictions to airpath and simply using the spheres to filter and cool.
I got this Legacy and so far I am pretty happy with it. It seems to be working as intended and I am impressed with the vapor quality and volume. Have been using it in on demand mode and while it is much slower than my Hopper IO the vapor is so much cooler and smoother.So long Legacy and Legacy Forum, I got a fair trade and got a StickyBrick Jr. for my Legacy and all I had for it.
