\n During initial warm-up of your Lava Lamp, the coil in the globe may tend to stand on end or float to the top of the globe. If this happens, keep your Lava Lamp operating for four hours or more to allow the secret solution to become completely melted. The coil should then automatically drop to its correct position at the bottom of the globe. If the coil does not drop down, then twirl the globe GENTLY in the base and the coil will drop. Do not shake and handle with care!
\n Although no two Lava Lamps will function the same, the patented Lava design will produce a characteristic flow. The charts below demonstrate a normal flow along with several abnormal conditions.\n

\n With proper care, your Lava Lamp will last a really long time- maybe even longer than you! There are, however, a few no-no's that can mess up your Lava Lamp.\n
\n - Do not loosen or remove the bottle or screw cap on globe. Breaking the seal will ruin your product and VOID YOUR WARRANTY!
\n - Do not move or shake your Lava Lamp while the lava blobs are "WARM." This will cause your Lava Lamp to become cloudy and permanently malfunction!
\n - Operation or storage of a lamp in direct sunlight will cause colors to FADE.
\n - It is recommended that you do not operate your Lava Lamp for more than 10 hours at a time. Running it less than 10 hours at a time will ensure proper operation and a long globe life.
\n - DO NOT store in temperatures where the globes can freeze.
\n This portable lamp has a polarized plug (one plug is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug will only fit in a polarized outlet one way. If the plug does not fully fit in the outlet, then reverse the plug. If you still encounter problems, then call a qualified electrician. Never use with an extension cord unless the plug can be fully inserted. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DEFEAT THIS SAFETY FEATURE. Your Lava Lamp operates at a very warm temperature. The glass globe and base will become "HOT!" Do not handle your Lava Lamp while it is still operating or hot to the touch. Health and Materials Info All Lava Lamps are nonhazardous.
