did you get the neons when they first came out? i'm wondering if the wax is part of a bad batch. i remember LL pulling neons for a bit and replacing them. my yellow neon came after this replacement and i don't have any problems with it. it's on my desk at work on a timer.
The new coils did the trick, If I hadn't found them I'm sure Jus's method would have worked.
It didn't work. :(
However I remembered I have two brand new coils from replacement bottles ordered last year that had the 'first batch' awful (new style bottle) glass, so I used the contents to refill a pair of Crestworths that were spent.
I'm waiting for the 'dust' to settle before running them.

I have two globes that started to do this, I've warmed them up and hooked the coils out and dropped them in pan of boiling water and washing up liquid for a few minutes. The coils are back in the globes. I'm leaving them to cool down till the hundreds of wax particles caused when I foolishly shook the coils in the liquid to remove the wax still in them has settled.
Oooooh, awesome! Well done!
