  6. Q. Why does my lava lamp have specs and bubbles in the glass?

  7. Q. What are the differences in quality between a Mathmos lava lamp and others?
    A. A different lava formulation giving better lava flow, longer life, clearer liquids and more vivid colours. The metal parts are of a thicker, higher grade metal allowing us to hand polish them to a high shine. Our bulbs are directional taking the heat away from the base and directing the light into the lava. We have a higher standard of safety and build quality audited by a number of different bodies. We provide a comprehensive range of spare parts unlike other throw away products. We have 50 years of British manufacturing excellence to draw on.
  8. Q. How long should it take for my lava lamp to warm up?
    A. Candle powered lava lamps should start working within half an hour to an hour and a half of turning them on. First they will form stalagmite shapes, then they will start to form lava lamp shapes. If your lava lamp does not warm up in this time it may be positioned in the wrong place or the room may be too cold. Lava lamps should be positioned away from drafts and air conditioning. The room should be at least 20 degrees centigrade.

  9. Q. My lava lamp just has one large bubble sitting at the top of the bottle that does not move?
    A. The lava lamp is overheated. It could have been on too long (more than 8 hours), so please turn it off and allow it too cool. Or it is positioned in a room that is too hot (more than 24 degrees) or next to a heater. Please reposition your lamp.

  10. Q. How should I dispose of my lava lamp bottle when it reaches the end of its life?

    A. No Mathmos lava lamp bottles are sealed units. Do not attempt to take off the cap and on no account top up the liquid.

If you are not happy with your bottle buy a new one here.

  22. Q. Why is there wax sticking to the side of the bottle?

  24. Q. Why can I see a metal spring coil floating in my lava lamp bottle?

    A. No, this could damage the lava mix in the bottle and turn the bottle cloudy.
  35. Q. Can I put the bottle on the radiator or in the microwave to get it moving faster?

  37. Q. Why is there a ball of lava at the bottom of my lamp?
    A. It sounds like your product has overheated because of the length of time it has been on or the ambient room temperature is higher than we'd recommend for running.
  38. Q. Why does my lamp take longer to begin operating when starting from stalagmites?
    A. There is less wax at the bottom of the bottle and it takes longer for the heat to permeate through.
