Bubble bummer! Let's get this figured out
Let's make sure you insert your bottle properly:
1 - Tilt the bottle rest out towards you until a click sound is heard. Do not pull the carbonating tube.
2 - Insert the Carbonating Bottle neck into the Snap-Lock and push it up and back. The Snap-Lock will hold the bottle in a vertical position suspended above the base.
* The bottle is inserted correctly when there is a gap between the bottle and the base.
Option 1 - The carbonating bottle won't connect
If the bottle won't connect to the Snap-Lock, tilt the bottle rest towards you until it reaches its fully forward position. Then insert the bottle neck into the Snap-Lock by firmly pushing the bottle up and back until it locks.
Option 2 - The carbonating bottle won't release
If the bottle won't release from the Snap-Lock, gently pull the bottle rest towards you until it reaches its fully forward tilt position. If the carbonating bottle does not immediately release from the Snap-Lock, wait a few moments and it may release.
Option 3 - The carbonating bottle disconnects during carbonation
If the bottle disconnects during carbonation, you may have a broken Snap-Lock. Check if the Carbonation Tube or Bottle Rest are crooked.
