I think i found the correct spot to post to...I had posted on a blog a few days ago while trying to figure things out on this site on my phone (my computer is working for the moment so am able to get on the real site)...Just trying to get a solution to my problem. I have a lamp from 1975. It got knocked over a few weeks ago and the cap broke, pouring out most the oil (or water?)and I am trying to find whatever it is to fill it back up. Any help is much appreciated. The lamp is the starlite base, black plastic bottom with three peg legs. There is a hole at the very bottom and a screw offset next to it to hold the light socket in place.
so...My lamp is pretty much full with a little room left. The lava domes, a little floated to the top and won't come down. I turned it on and the lava streamed up like normal but then went back down and just stays domed. With the exception of the the small amount that stays on top.
