Is it seized? Can it be unscrewed? Have you tried lubing it? Is the bearing stuck?

Yep. Can't do anything without a diagnosis. and if you try to make one you'll probably fix it yourself in the process.

I've cheaked, and the purge cover does come off, but there is a little piece of plastic cover the ball bearing, so it doesn't get lost I suppose.. And it doesn't come off. Other than the purge problem, the hookah is a little beast, lol.

Pictures?And have you tried threading something, like a straightened paperclip, up from the bottom of the stem and tried to push the ballbearing free?

I think the little plastic thing is just blocking the bearing from "popping" up to purge.. I dunno, I'll take a picture when I find my camera.

Ok... so if the plastic thing is blocking BB then why not remove the Plastic thing? Will the BB still sit in the divot and seal when you are inhaling? On my KM's and my AF's there is no plastic thing. The Mya I have is a sealed unit but from the sounds of things there is no plastic retention piece.

My suggestion would be to try to either remove the plastic obstruction or pop the BB up with a straightened paperclip. I will tell ya, I used to not take the water out of my hookah until the next smoke, but soon learned that this promoted rust and the purge ball getting stuck. It's a pain in the butt, I know how you feel.

Hmmm... I would try to remove the plastic retention piece, and if absolutely necessary, and if you have the means... Drill out the purge valve
