Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

I have a lava lamp century model that is at least 10 years old. Lately it seems the lava doesn't flow properly it just sits in the bottom. I have read other posts about people changing the liquid/wax/coil but I have never attempted to perform surgery on a lava lamp. I'm not an expert but the century model seems to be a more rare model so I want to avoid messing with it too much if possible. In the past it has acted like this before occasionally and I would just turn it off when the lava stops flowing and the next day it would work fine. Now it has done this several times in a row. Is there any way to gently coax the lava back to flowing properly?

It's completely melted and floating just above the coil touching part of it.

This exact same thing happened to me with two lamps. Keeping the heat lower with a dimmer helps but I think that there is too much surfactant sand am currently trying to dilute the fluid in a new model to see if it works. The other lamp is an Aristocrat from the early 90's and I'm not sure I want to mess with it.
