On-going list of quality issues with Lava Lite lamps (post-2003 lamps)

Started this discussion. Last reply by kero48 Dec 30, 2017. 17 Replies

I've slowed down in buying lamps over the years, but I still get tempted when I see Lava Lite put out new lamps. And nearly all of the time, I'm disappointed. I wanted to consolidate my…Continue

I know this seems strange, but I'm going to sell this. I just didn't like it as much as I thought I would. It's 100% in-tact and more pics available upon request. There's nothing wrong with it, but…Continue

Profile Information

Something Interesting About Me:
Been collecting since May of 2010. I love my six birdies (five parakeets and one cockatiel), photography, gardening and crochet. I told myself I wouldn't get more than ten. :) During the first 10 days, I got five, so we'll see how this goes. :) Update 10/08/10: I'm at 21 lamps. Clearly, I have a problem. Update 06/10/11: At about 35 lamps now, so yes, I do indeed have a little addiction! 08/04/11: You know, I'm going to quit counting...
Where I Live:
Iowa Quad Cities
My First Lava Lamp was:
I remember the first lava lamp I ever saw was at my great-grandparents' house in Colorado in the mid-80s. I thought it was so cool! I do not remember the color combo though.

Got one as a teenager (early 90s yellow/red), then attempted to sell it at garage sale in 2003 and my landlord shattered it. I remember really liking it, so I don't know what possessed me to sell it. Now, seven or so years later, I've become interested in them again.
My Collection Includes this many Lava Lamps:
70 or so lava, glitter, and related ;)
My Favorite Lava Lamp is:
The Carlisle!
Relationship Status:

"I hate to be such a downer, but I don't like seeing people waste their money. I think people need to know what to expect when they buy these lamps. "
Erin replied to Theraft's discussion Spencer's new 52 OZ
"They can look quite stunning early on. But taking one look at the display at my local Spencer’s told me I should steer clear. They looked horrible. My point is that early on, a lot of them look great. After 20 or so runs and that’s when…"
Erin replied to Theraft's discussion Spencer's new 52 OZ
"I wouldn't bother. Most of the lamps I've bought from there will have one of several problems in a short amount of time: gunk in the wax after a few runs, poor flow, lava stuck to the glass around the top/bottom of the globe, lots of…"
Erin replied to kevin pedro's discussion Can this be fixed or is it just best to return?
"Return it. Trust me. "

Erin replied to Jage's discussion Could I get a Century Cap Replacement?
"It's mostly likely from the early 70s, but I agree - gorgeous lamp! There aren't many great options for replacement caps, but you have two choices: 1) find one from another "parts" lamp (hard to do) 2) There's someone on…"

Erin replied to jim young's discussion What is considered a USA made pre china lamp?
"A lot of sellers consider them "working" if they move at all. The first few mins after the lava is heated up, it throws up a few blobs. But then it just stays in a mound at the bottom.  Per his listing, he says "inspected and…"

Erin replied to jim young's discussion What is considered a USA made pre china lamp?
"I got one of those lamps. I will say that 2002 can be a weird year for globes, too. The one I got from that seller (clear/purple) - the lava does not flow. It heats up but does not go anywhere. I've ran it several times now and no action. I had…"

"Yes, I remember about the rubber plug being sucked in. The other one, sorry about, maybe the new one, it will just be a goody. Only time will tell!"

Thanks Erin!  I think I got them mostly from here but realized that was before the library was started.  So really I can't take any credit for them but am happy that I have them to share.
