Store Had a Replacement For Defective Lava Lamp
About Me Budget shopper
Comments about Spencer's Lava Lamp - 16.3" Blue Liquid Red Wax:
The Blue water Red wax Lava Lamp ordered online had come with blurry residue on the inside, that would not go away as the troubleshooting page enclosed suggested it would. So I was all set to return it online. But I called a local Spencer's Store who had several in stock. They were more than happy to exchange it. The replacement was great. Happy with my purchase and subsequent exchange.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A great combination
About Me Midrange shopper
See all my reviews
Wonderful color combination. A darker lamp for sure but very colorful and intense once the lava gets flowing well. Red lava takes on a red to almost magenta coloration as it moves at various depths. Looks great and showed up clear. Had a few air bubbles on the glass but they have cleared up after running the lamp a few times. Looks great with my other vintage and modern lamps.

I love this product so much it came in less then 4 days without paying extra for shipping and over all it's a amazing product! Anytime I go to the mall I always make sure to stop at Spencer's cause they always have amazing deals and the people there are amazing! Also the lamp goes perfect with the theme of my room and over all every product Spencer's has is a good one.

I would buy this product again and again
I saw many reviews complaining about cloudy lamps that I decided to go to the store and ask to see it before buying it (not working, just to be sure it was not cloudy) it was not so I bought it. and IT IS AWESOME, crystal clear and works perfect, I'm thinking about buying a grande now. and i'll go to the store and see it firs too. So don't be lazy go to the store! is the only way to be sure.
This was a gift for my 8 year old daughter. She loves anything having to do with space and anything having to do with Superman. This lava lamp, with the 2 superman colors, was the best Christmas gift. She uses it as a nightlight in her room and simply loves it. The price was excellent.
Excellent Size for the Money!!

I have had this same model lava lamp for 13 years and it still works great. I bought this one to give as a gift and it is just as awesome as the one I have. Do yourself a favor and get the 52 oz series from spencers. I shopped around and I'm telling you it is the best model. You may regret buying elsewhere, but you'll love this product.
About 90% Amazing!
I bought this as a replacement for another lamp that had problems with the wax. On the first plug-in, there was wax movement and things started to move around. It took a few 'cycles' for the lamp to break in. The first few times it didn't have the 'flow' I was looking for. Then on about the 4-5th time, it was perfect!! The lamp appears to be cloudy in some situations. I think this is due to the darker red wax and a blue liquid. When the lava is flowing and off the bottom, the lamp is clear and I can see everything great. Then when the lava settles at the bottom and covers the light bulb, the appearance of cloudy water comes through. I don't know if another lamp would correct this. There are a few specks in the glass that are seen in the dark but nothing too major. The darker the room, the better things look!

What's Old Is New Again
from Sarasota, FL
Break-in period takes attention to some detail and patience. I've bought 4 so far (both as gifts and own one). Let it come up to room temp. Don't move it or jiggle it especially after it warms up (1.5 hrs). Give it lots of time to be on (but not more than 8 hr straight. Be aware that it Can take 4-5 or more sessions of 4 plus hours to condition. I use a timer with a power cut off switch. Don't place in or near the sunlight nor near the cold (a/c). If it is cloudy right off the bat, return it and get an exchange. Don't put a higher weattage bulb than it came with.

Box said Red and Blue but received Green
from New York, NY
Not only was the glass very cloudy, I bought a red and blue lava lamp and instead of that I received a very ugly green coloured lava lamp. I am waiting to see if the colour changes but I will be returning it if it does not.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Guest Services Response:We highly recommend you allowing your lava lamp to reach room temperature before running it for 6-8 hours for maximum lava flow!

Not Like The Picture On The Website
from Memphis, TN
The lava flow of the lamp is alright but the light in the lamp does not light the lamp enough to see the lava. It also came with a small ding (dent) in the bottom stand.
Guest Services Response:We see that you were not completely happy with how bright this product was. We suggest trying a lava lamp with clear liquid. The light will pass through the clear liquid easier. You can find on such item here http://www.spencersonline.com/product/home-dorm/lava-lamps/lava-lamp-14-5-clear-liquid-black-wax/pc/272/c/0/sc/310/486.uts?thumbnailIndex=5
The lava did not do anything
from Dubuque IA
It just didn't do anything. The lava is just in a glob at the bottom. I'm not sure if it is just really old or what. This is the first one i have had that did not work.
Guest Services Response:We are sorry to hear you are having trouble getting your lava flowing. Lava lamps operate best at 69 degrees Fahrenheit and on a flat and stationery surface. If the lava is not flowing as anticipated the lamp may be getting too hot or too cold. Make sure that the lamp is not placed in front of any windows or a cooling/heating unit or vent. You may also want to check and make sure the bulb is installed properly.

I bought this for my daughters birthday and when I tested it I was not happy. The only lava that was lit up and pretty was the lava closest to the light at the bottom of the lamp. It was very hard to see the lava in this lamp, not what I expected.
Guest Services Response:Thank you for telling us about your recent purchase. Spencer’s provides a Lava Lamp link under the help section of the website to answer most Lava Lamp questions. Sometimes due to transit you may occasionally receive a cloudy lava lamp. If the lamp arrives cloudy run it for 6-8 hours a day for seven consecutive days. Make sure that the lamp has had the chance to completely cool down before turning it on again. Please reach out to us on our live chat/ email option at the top of the page should you have any further questions or concerns.

Buy at your own risk
I wouldn't recommend this product. I read one review that said it was great and another review that said it was cloudy and not very good quality. So I purchased the lava lamp and should have listened to the guy with the negative review. The glass had tiny specks in it and was cloudy on the outside towards the bottom that looked like it could be wiped off but after using glass cleaner the cloudiness would reappear. In this modern day and age there's no reason the glass shouldn't be crystal clear. You get what you pay for.
Guest Services Response:We recommend letting your lava lamp reach room temperature before allowing it to heat up for 6-8 hours!

This is the second red and blue I've purchased from Spencer's and just like the first, It arrived extremely cloudy. If I didn't know how to redo the liquid, it would be a loss. I don't recommend purchasing.
