checklist:

airtight?
water level above stem?
shisha packed loosely?

after that, if you don't get enough smoke, add more heat!

let us know

Just pack on the coals... like a lot. If you're feeling daring, put it straight on the tobacco. (this technique is for real men such as myself only)

as austin pointed out, check for leaks. I had to put a little tape around the stem of the hookah and then put the grommet over it. Also you really only want to water level about and inch above the end of the stem, When set up right, that hookah will smoke very well.

It most likely just has leaks...Looks for those leaks and make the hookah airtight again.

Is the vase grommet there? If not, just get some pieces of wet paper towels and replace it. Or get duct tape and tape it around where the vase and stem meet

well put the hookah together and put your hand over the hole where the bowl goes and then suck in through the hose port. It you hear air and dont get a airtight seal, try to pinpoint it. Like I said, I had to use a bit or electrical tape where the grommet goes on the stem to make it an air tight fit.

Yeah you have a leak somewhere Bro. Wrap some electrical, or even scotch tape around your vase grommet. It should take some effort to seat the stem in the vase. Hold your finger over the top of the stem and draw. You should see no bubbles come from the stem. If you do there's a leak somewhere else.

Just wrap electrical tape around your grommet. If that doesn't do the job, i'd go get a new grommet. Also, check for leaks everywhere
