"I have noticed very different run times and lava activity dependin on where in my living room I use my lamps. Some got hot very quick and some can run longer than they are supposed to. Just the nature of the beast!"

"It all makes sense. No babbling haha. I appreciate you and the other guys weighing in.  I've actually narrowed things down a little. After watching it on the other base I realize it does the exact same thing on both bases (same watt bulbs)…"

Keith replied to Jim's discussion Overheated Century?
"So I'm not sure of what steps you took with this lamp.  Are the pictures with a different base than the description you gave of the flow stopping after 6 hours?  I ask because the pictures seem to be of wax that hasn't…"

"Keith, why do you think this particular lamp is overheating? Is it possible the previous owner kept it on too long? You think changing to a frosted bulb or using a dimmer is the solution? Is there anything else I might be missing?"

Keith replied to Jim's discussion Overheated Century?
"Hot wax at the top is the first overheated stage, then kind of a flate dome at the bottom.  That's a really overheated lamp."

Jim replied to Jim's discussion Overheated Century?
"Thanks guys. The lamp was made in 1990. Was going to try the dimmer but was thinking I would  dim it a little the whole time. Maybe I will try your idea of bringing it down once it's flowing. Seems like a good idea. "

Mr MaGoo replied to Jim's discussion Overheated Century?
"You say after six hours it globs up on the bottom.  A hot lamp will have many lava bubbles at the top, lava moved up by heat.  Not sure how old lamp is, possible lava could be getting old, as lava does have a lifespan, so to speak. …"

Jim replied to Jim's discussion Overheated Century?
"So it looks like the lamp take the standard 2-2.5 hours or so to get going, then flows great, and then somewhere around hour six it goes into the dormant phase where it globs up on the bottom and sits there. If I let it cool down for a half hour to…"

Jim replied to Jim's discussion Overheated Century?
"You guys are right. After my last post the lava flowed better than I had ever seen it. It was on a different base with a different bulb. I assumed because it had stopped flowing after being on for 10 hours that it was an overheating problem, but now…"

"add to the fact that the coil looks flipped on its side not transferring heat to the lava"

LampHead replied to Jim's discussion Overheated Century?
"Actually it looks to be running on the cool side."

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakwale5888@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
Stella.
