If I had to guess I would say that the tiny little Halogen bulb you are using is not getting hot enough.

Or the lava will not flow in just plain water.

I think you need to add some salt or dishwashing soap to it - not sure as I have never tried to refill with water before.

Goo kits uses plain distilled water but then you have to add surfactant to it.

If you know someone in the UK that could help you out with shipping you could just buy a new bottle -

The lightbulb is too far from the bottle. This is how the original looks like. The new 100w lightbulbs from Mathmos is longer and wider than yours.

Hi Magnus Vikberg

Thank you for your time..non wonder why.. Could you tell me where i order to buy it online? i live In San Francisco CA USA.

Thanks again.

I don´t think Mathmos sells to USA and the bulbs is 230v. I have bought a couple of new reflectorlamps 230v 75w in Sweden were I live and the model name is "par 30" same model as Mathmos own but 75w instead of 100w. Maybe par 30 is made for 120v also. Check that out!
