"Yep, the melted wax flows through like water (almost).  You do lose a tiny amount of wax because it does stick to the metal.  I suppose if the metal filter was heated it would help."

"Wow, I didn't think the lava would flow well through a metal filter."

"I have used one of those metal coffee filters with good results.  Didn't get everything but you could hardly see any residue after. This discussion will help: http://oozinggoo.ning.com/forum/topics/dirty-wax-in-a-1986-century"

"Not entirely sure. I think the wax was disintegrating or something."

"Sorry to hear it. :( My purple/yellow that I won on eBay has gunk in the coil, but flows nice. What was wrong with yours? What was the problem?"

"Don't worry. You didn't miss anything. The lamp is garbage, and I had to return it. No amount of tlc can fix that lamp."

"Roger that. I shall turn it on right now. "cooked"? Guess it was overheated?"

"Definitely not new, it was run before I can tell from the Ebay pics. Run it a few times and see if it helps it at all, if its not cooked it should work fine after a few runs. LampHead"

"I just got a purple/yellow off eBay, too. Mine has gunk in the coil and looks like it hasn't been ran for years. Can you show us what it looked like on the eBay listing?"

Wondering what's wrong...

Just got a unused purple liquid/yellow wax off of e-bay. Was really stoked; I've been looking for this color combination for a while, and to get it unused made it all the more sweeter. Provided pics on seller's auction were great, so I guess something got futzed up in transit.I'm not entirely sure what the problem is. Lamp is on the right. Lamp on the left is purple liquid/red wax for reference. Half of the wax looks like a big and small urinal cake, and the liquid looks a little cloudy.…See More
