I couldn't help it. K&K True Value had them on sale for $10 so my boyfriend bought me one. Cranked it up thinking "surely all those China-made lamps can't be bad" and 1.5 hours later, one giant blob at the bottom of the lamp that won't move. It's got a 25W bulb in it, flakes of *something* in the water and it looks like it's separated from the coil.
I'm just wondering if I could tinker with it at all and have a working lamp or if it's a lost cause. Anyone get a China lamp functioning with minimal effort?
