I just discovered this website. Great! I have this model lava lamp and have enjoyed it for the past 5 years or so. Light bulb has burned out, but I cannot figure out how to remove the globe so that I can get to the bulb to replace it! Can anyone give me some help here?
hair dryer and a lot of patience
sit down next to it, rotate the heaat until the "bottleneck" heats up enoght to allow the lava to drop
By reflectors do you mean the bulbs that are flat on the top and go down in a V shape? If so, that is what I have in these. The bottles feel very hot, but the wax just won't melt..... Any ideas how to get the wax back down where it belongs?
These lamps have been running for about 8 hrs when this photo was taken, and the wax at the top won't liquify. I even had a towel over them for an hour or two...no luck from that either. Do you think that I need to pour them out and add new wax and water? I hate to do that....the colors are so pretty.
