I just got my 2nd Glitter grand with the black base today and it leaks. But only when on, once it heats up and builds up condensation/pressure there is a steady leak that runs from the top down the side of the bottle.
I have 6 grandes now and ive redone 3 myself, and this is the first time ive seen this. Should i pop the top off and seal the plunger with silicone or what ?
Brand new product = get it replaced
Generally speaking anyway
Call them up and have them send you a new one and keep the one you have now for your inconvenience of having to constantly clean the mess the current lamps causing and your grief. I think everyone here can agree.
Wow that sucks, I am happy I held off as I would not be happy with a leaky lamp. I am sure you can fix it but you shouldn't have to.
I am curious if you call how they will handle the replacement as the company is now Schylling.
Tinkering with many grandes before I've had this issue with getting that air tight seal, Unless the rubber seal is messed up what I usually do is when I turn it off, after running it for a while, I place a weight on the top of the globe so when it cools the weight applies pressure to the seal and doesn't allow air to get sucked into the globe which usually causes it to leak.
Well it stopped leaking.. I suspect the rubber plungee was put on when cold and when on the massive pressure from the expansion was forcing air out and condensation, because the metal top was being pushed up pretty high in the middle.. I also knocked/ bent that buldge down. And the air that did escape equalized pressure so when it got cold it created a better equalibrium, like putting the cap on when hot, if that makes sense at all ?
Because it hasnt leaked in the last couple days ive cycled it on and off.
On a side note.. black base looks alot better then the gold i first got
Happy it's all sorted, I thought I told you somewhere that the black bases are good. I have one for my yellow and red lava grande
Speaking of 50th anniversary grandes, I have one for sale if anyone is interested, its only been on like 5 times. Hit me up!
