Is the cartomiser gurgling when you draw on it, if it is you definitely need to blow it to clear it. You might also need to dab the top part with a tissue if its flooded before attaching the drip tip.
Can you hear a hissing noise when you press the button to inhale?
If you hear it hissing when you hold it close to your ear with the button pressed in on the battery you know its working. They do tend to start off a bit slow and improve as you use them also. The ryeC9 juice should be grand in it because I've used that same one from e-smokeireland in carto/tanks and it is perfect.
