IQOS 2.4 temperature issues

Do you see a red light on your holder or a red blinking light on your IQOS 2.4 Pocket Charger? This might be, because your IQOS is too cold or too hot

The IQOS 2.4 operates in a temperature range between 10° and 40°C. If the ambient temperature is low, try warming the IQOS 2.4 Holder in your hand for at least 1 minute. If it is too hot, take it with you to a colder place and it should be working again once it has cooled down.

Check to see if your IQOS 2.4 has a broken blade or any other physical damage. If it does, we are sorry that this happened to you. Please contact Customer Care and we will support you with this issue.

Sometimes cleaning the IQOS 2.4 Holder can damage the blade inside your IQOS 2.4 Holder. Be careful not to exert force onto the blade when cleaning your IQOS 2.4. Also ensure you never twist your HEETS tobacco stick while it's in the Holder. This movement can damage the heating blade and disrupt your IQOS 2.4 experience.
