Al Chemysto replied to Woodvetch's discussion LOUIE GOO IS NOT LL OR LW GOO, IT WILL START UP DIFFERENTLY = PICS
"A grande of mine starts up like that but then 90% lumps up to the top and gets stuck there while the remaining 10% remains in a shallow liquid layer at the bottom. What gives? How can I fix it? The lamp had been off for over 9 months until recently…"

"The ONLY way I'd buy one if it was reasonably priced. Several hundred dollars is absurd for these thing when they're probably built for maybe a couple hundred at best. Also, they better have some decent dimmer control(s) or maybe a temp…"

"We've all seen the tutorial, personally I was specifically wondering what would happen if I just siphoned enough water to counter balance the addition of dropping in more goo from a goo kit. Not draining the whole thing or removing any original…"

"So for the hybridization is it really necessary to change out the water? I'm wondering what would happen if I just poped the top and drop in some goo-kit goo and just removed enough water to keep the lamp from over flowing. "

"So did anyone ever come up with actual fix for these defective yellow purples? Mine has rarely run correctly for more than just a couple hours. No combination of replacement bulbs from Lava or dimmer settings has ever yielded proper operation. So…"

"Susan has offered a full refund. The 200 watt bulb has made no difference. Depending on how soon she sends fedex out to pick up the lamp I might try an even lower watt bulb. Whats the next lowest wattage 175? Would that even be hot enough to get…"

"I think the reality is that globes are being "recycled". Some one complains it runs too hot, it gets returned and repackaged as "new" and put back into "replacement" stock for some one else to try. IF this is a…"
