Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hi all,

I have a century that likes to only flow in a column. No matter how long it stays turned on, we only see that unbreakable column flow.

I was wondering if replacing the liquid in this century with different liquid from another USA lamp would change the flow considering the possibly different formula makeup there? Or is the column flow only a wax issue? Any help would be highly appreciated to break the damn thing!

(For reference, the century is a 90's lamp and the replacement liquid would also be from another 90's lamp)

add a drop or two of SURF (SLES or SLS) or clear hand soap (with minimal ingredients)

It will help break the surface tension

Try kerosene. No more than 1 ML. You will need to remove the master fluid and melt the wax and add it. Kerosene is less dense than water and will float otherwise. Kerosene will break up the flow.

what about if the wax is filled with bubbles and doing this?

1985 century just wont flow, gets full of bubbles and then gets stuck in a column.

The wax has reached its end of life. Nothing you can do at this point.

ah, well looks like i'll be replacing it then. I was worried that it might be something like that but hoped there might be something i could do.
