Mathmos Astro Lava Lamp Instructions

Position

Choose a position for your lamp on a level surface in a room with a temperature between 20 and 24°C or (69 to 75°F).

Place the lamp well away from;

  • children under 14 years to prevent breakage
  • sunlight to prevent fading
  • drafts to prevent slow operation
  • cold places to prevent freezing
  • hot places to prevent overheating
  • animals to prevent breakage
  • do not place on carpets or block the ventilation spaces beneath the lamp.

Set Up & Warm Up

IMPORTANT! – FITTING MATHMOS HALOGEN BULBS

  1. Handle the bulb with great care; halogen bulbs are extremely delicate.
  2. Allow the bulb to warm to room temperature.
  3. Made sure your lava lamp is in the correct position.
  4. Use a tissue to hold the bulb; deposits on our fingers can damage the bulb.GU10 bulbs: Carefully push the two prongs of the bulb down into the socket and turn it a quarter-turn clockwise until it stops rotating.
    SES bulbs: Carefully screw the bulb in and rotate clockwise for three turns or until it meets resistance.
  5. Place the bottle on the base delicately.
  6. Turn the lamp on using the inline switch.

Important

  1. Never touch the bulb or the lamp when it is on.
  2. Allow the light to cool for one hour before touching the bulb or lamp.
  3. Do not run your lava lamp for more than 6 hours at any one time.
  4. Always leave the bottle sitting on the base when you turn it on.

Put the bottle on the base with the screw cap at the top. If it is not sitting straight please rotate a little. Then plug it in and turn it on. NB. It is normal for the glass to have small air bubbles and moulding scars.

Warm up takes between 1 and 3 hours depending on the size of the model and the surrounding temperature. Stalagmite shapes may form during the warm up process, these will then melt and the lava will begin to flow.

Operation

Your Mathmos lava lamp will operate best after it has been used four or five times. For the first few times you may see small air bubbles in the lava. Please do not leave your lava lamp on for more than six hours a day; this will prolong the life of your lamp.

Overheating will shorten the light of the life of the lamp. Overheating is occurring if there is either one large bubble or many smaller ones. Never move or shake the lamp when it is in use or still warm as this causes irreparable clouding. It is normal for the base to become very hot.

Replacements

When your lava lamp has ended its life it will begin to go cloudy, the colours may fade and it will not move as well as it once did. This will happen after approximately 2000 hours of operation. You can then buy a new bottle at www.mathmos.eu in the current colours available. Please note we do not refill bottles and please on no account open the bottle or add liquids.

If the bulb blows please replace it with one of the same type and wattage. Only fit the correct bulb, as stated on the label in the base. Again bulbs can be bought at www.mathmos.eu as can many replacement parts.

Safety

This lamp has passed the relevant safety standards and carries the statutory guarantee of the country of purchase. The liquid in the lamps are not dangerous and can be disposed of normally. Never use a lamp if the bottle has been dropped as this will create weakness in the glass, obtain a replacement bottle and dispose of the old one. Do not leave the lamp unattended with small children. If the liquid is swallowed by mistake drink plenty of water. If it is spilt onto the skin or had contact with the eyes pour on cold water. If any symptoms appear please visit a doctor.

Mathmos Evo Lava Lamp Instructions

Back ▲

Position

Please wait 24 hours or more before using Evo. The bottle needs to warm to room temperature before use. A sudden temperature change could cause the bottle to crack.

Choose a position in a room with a temperature between 20 and 24ºC and (69-75ºF).
Place Evo away from draughts to prevent slow operation. Draughts may also cause the candle to go out.
Keep Evo away from children and animals to prevent breakage.
Place Evo away from sunlight to prevent fading.
Do not place on carpets or block the ventilation spaces beneath the lamp.

Setup

  1. Place the glass base on a level surface. A heatproof mat may be required depending on the surface.
  2. Place the tealight in place in the glass.
  3. Place the bottom metal support onto the glass, ensuring it is properly lined up.
  4. Place the bottle on top of the bottom metal support and the metal cap on top of the bottle.
  5. Light the tea light through the opening in the base.

Use

Evo will take between 40 – 50 minutes to warm up, depending on the surrounding temperature and the brand of tea light used.
After 4 hrs use, or before, gently blow the tea light out without touching the product as it will now be hot.
Please use a new tea light every time you use the product to avoid changing it whilst mid-operation.
Please clean the base of the bottle before use every time. This will clear any soot that the tea light may have deposited onto the base of the bottle.
Use only the small 4-hour tea lights as the long-lasting ones will burn for too long. [One single wick tealight candle, maximum size 1.5 in. (38mm) dia. x 0.63 in. (16mm) high.]
