I recently purchased this on eBay for $70 because it appeared to be in amazing condition. It has a problem that I'm really bummed about.
It flows so amazingly for about 30- an hour after melting and after that, the wax mostly stays in the bottom third of the glob, hardly dancing at all let alone flowing. I twisted the cap off to find its missing the usual red stopper that I see sealing the globes on these 70s 32 oz lamps. That led me to notice when the lamp is melted, the liquid is way too high for a 70s lamp, almost going past the bottom of the lid. I now have a feeling some idiot added water to the globe and I'm SO BUMMED. I'm afraid to experiment because this lamp is so freaking nice.
Can someone help me out in any way??
