    Double blob on side

    Hi guys, I'm not an expert on lava lamps but I love mine and I hope you could help!I got a model similar to mathmos jet 3-4 years ago. At the time I didn't have much money, so it's probably a Chinese version of it, from Amazon.It worked beautifully till the bulb burst and I never had the chance to change it. It's been off for maybe 1 1/2 year and I moved house twice so the liquid is a bit cloudy (but not too bad).I've now managed to get a new bulb r39 25W (inside it says it can hold up to 30W…Continue

    Lava flow problem

    Started by Ethel in Problems & Questions yesterday. 0 Replies

    I bought a lava lamp off ebay. When I got it I noticed that some of the lava was stuck on the bottom with the coil. I plugged it in and it was on for 6 hours and did not melt the wax. The coil did get unstuck but it is wrapped with a lot of wax around it. Is there anyway I can fix this. I have the correct size bulb in the base and I tried the base with another globe and it worked fine. The problem seems to be with the coil. What do you all think?Continue
