I recently purchased a 52 oz red/clear Lava Lite unit at Spencers. At the advice of several members here, I returned the unit as the liquid had "white flakes" floating around when heated up. I exchanged it for the 52 oz orange/purple liquid unit.
This new lamp is quite beautiful, with awesomely clear liquid and almost transparent wax! My only issue is there seems to be some kind of residual wax (or something) on the lower inside of the globe - kind of like a "bathtub soap ring," for lack of a better description. (Please see attached photo.)
Feeling optimistic, I've been running the lamp for a few hours, several times now, hoping the residual stuff would melt or be cleaned off by the flowing blobs of wax - to no avail.
Any suggestions in fixing this problem are most appreciated!
I have to add, either I'm cursed or Lava Lite has absolutly no quality control! I'll be embarrassed to return yet another unit to Spencers but if I do, I'll request a credit to my card.
I love this H5225 unit very much and hope this problem can be remedied...
