    Might still be some crud not getting pushed out by the pricker wire or wire is deformed maybe is my guess. As long as flame is uniform and centered.

    Take tip off and clean it inside and out. I had one like that, once I cleaned the crud off really well it worked great. Mine was also kind hard to keep running, till I really cleaned tip.

    I take a small drill bit and with my fingers give it a couple twirls on the hole. Your not really trying to remove material, just clean it up.
