I purchased a brand new LAVA brand Lava Lamp three days ago. I have run it several times for 5-6 hours and it has not yet flowed. The lava just gets hot and hovers in a big clump at the bottom, it looks like the picture on the site that is saying the Lamp is too hot and has been running for too long but I am using the bulb it came with and running it only in the specified time frame. Also, when it was heating up a big piece broke off and rose up to the top and has been there ever since. What do I do about this? It really bothers me, I want to look at a fun lava lamp, not just a sitting blob!
Any help is greatly appreciated, I had one of these as a kid, but other then that I don't know much about them other then the usual not to shake etc.
