WTB: Consort bottle

Started Apr 5 0 Replies

The bottom of my Consort's bottle cracked in a few places so I am in need of a new one. Doesn't need to have wax or fluid, or even a cap (I still have the cap from mine). Thanks. Continue

"Commercial degreaser called Krud Kutter. It's 100% non-toxic, biodegradable, and it works every time to get sticking wax off the sides of the bottle. "

"The floating shredded "snow" stuff is normal when a lamp hasn't been run in awhile. It's the wax starting to separate. When the wax melts it should mix back in with the wax. "

"My theory is that the surfactant somehow infused with the wax and it essentially "soapy". I have tried so many things to fix this and searched this site for weeks... it cannot be fixed."

"same problem with an Aristocrat. It has done this for 30 years, I've tried to get the bubbles to pop, but they always reform. As best I can tell, the lamp forms a siphon  when it is warming up and sucks some liquid under the wax, which…"

BamaMatt replied to benson41011's discussion The Fluid Bubbling Problem - Driving Me Crazy
"Sounds like a coil issue. What happens is a section of the coil will have a gap in the wax sticking to it, creating an opening for liquid to seep in under the wax blob. This liquid stays right above the bulb until it gets hot enough to rapidly shoot…"

The Fluid Bubbling Problem - Driving Me Crazy

I have tried everything, replacing fluid, adding different surfactants, and I'm about ready to give up. So there's a problem that I have had a lot more than others seem to, in fact I've never seen anything about it on here. I call it the "fluid bubbling" problem. Yes I know there is a problem that is known in which the wax is infused with master fluid bubbles, but the fluid bubbling problem is different. It is what creates the bubbles. You see, at the bottom of the globe, when the wax starts to…See More
