"Good to hear, I would let it run on the 60w for a week and then go back to the 40w. The 60w will eventually fry your wax if you use it too much."

"maybe like 3 hours on 3 off. A dimmer would be a good investment that way you can keep it on longer."

"It just sounds like it needs a jump start really. Run it on the 60 watt for a little bit at a time then try going back to the 40 after a week. I wouldn't mess the the fluid until you know for sure its the issue."

After hours of running…See More
