The lamp I have is a 36oz "The Original Lava Brand." To my dismay, Made In China...
I've left it on for a bit, and it stayed in a blob at the bottom (11am-3pm)
then i read on OG that the material it rests on can affect how it works, and i put it on my harry potter book after letting it cool. it worked, and the lamp gave birth to a few bubbles, but then goose egged. (6pm-8pm)
I've read that maybe the coil is the problem, and that other times the bulb is the problem. For my sake, i've decided the coil is the problem. It covers only 65% of the base, and 65% of the lava. I think i am gonna open it up and stretch the coil, but im not so sure its a good idea, or that it would work.
The lava is either wrapped around the coil, or melted within it. Its giving me an unpredictable flow, sometimes working, other times not.
The bulb I have is a 40watt unfrosted 120v. for the sake of the argument, lets say its not the problem. If the coil-stretching doesn't work, ill get a new bulb, promise.
Can anyone give me ideas what to do?
