Default Odd purge valve

I never paid much attention to it but on my MYA Acrylic the purge valve doesn't seem to work like it does for my Egyptian. With the Egyptian when you blow into the hose smoke will come out the valve but with the MYA nothing happens. This doesn't hinder my smoking but still kinda odd.

Also when I tried the second hose adapter I couldn't get any smoke, they both have the auto seal bearing (except one is an airsoft bb....)

Any ideas?

Did you check if the bearing got stuck?

the mya has a common chamber, so youll never be fully able to clear the chamber but that doesn't seem to be the problem youre having. there should be some sort of purge, even if its small.

could your airsoft bb falling into the valve deeper and gotten stuck as dragonman suggested? check it out, if it has just pop it out and try again

the bb is most likely your issue, try wrapping foil around the bb, make it a bit larger and see if it cant make it work normally
