My Lampe Berger Fragrance Lamp Will Not Stay Lit, Please Help

Are you having a problem keeping your Lampe Berger fragrance lamp lit?  If so, the information below will probably help you.

First off, make sure that you are using only original Lampe Berger fragrance oils in your fragrance lamp.  Provided that is the case, the reason your Lampe Berger burner will not stay lit is probably because the wick has soaked up too much fragrance oil and has become overly saturated.  This usually occurs because of one of the following reasons:

  1. Your lamp is filled too high with fragrance oil - Lampe Berger recommends that you fill your fragrance lamp up to 2/3 the way full and no more.  But, in our experience filling your fragrance lamp 1/2 full with fragrance oil is better, especially if you are having this problem.
  2. Your wick needs replacement - You should replace your Lampe Berger Wick / Burner every year or 200 uses, whatever comes first. Also, do not use the cheaper knock off brand catalytic burners in your Lampe Berger because they do not work very well.

If you are using a newer wick / burner with original Lampe Berger fragrance oils, following these steps below will probably help get your burner working properly again.  First, remove your wick / burner from the lamp and place it somewhere safe away from children and pets to dry out for about 24 hours.  Then, make sure your fragrance lamp is no more than 1/2 full with the Lampe Berger oil.  Finally, replace your dried out wick and follow the instructions for first time use of your Lampe Berger Lamp.

In our experience this will solve your problem of the Lampe Berger burner not staying lit the majority of the time.  Give it a try, it can't hurt, won't cost you anything and will probably greatly improve your Lampe Berger usage experience.

    Cutting the wick may have caused your issue. The design of the wick helps it to work correctly and should not be modified.


    ok I just bought new wick, cut it so it’s about 6 inches long, poured lamp oil in the pottery lamp and tried lighting. I had to keep turning the screw to get the wick to stay lit. If I left the flame for more than 30 seconds the wick would burn out. Perhaps this pottery lamb deal is a sham? My friend tried her’s and the same exact problem. It seems the wick is certainly wet enough so that shouldn’t be the problem, or is it too wet? At a loss, luckily I bought the lamp at a church sale for only $5.00.

    I use to see a very dull mist that came out and the smell was fine now I cant see any small mist a d I can hardly smell anything.

    My lamp is several years old and has been in storage in various climates.
    Bought fresh LB oil today- it lites perfectly but the flame does not go down and when I blow it out, it does not burn.
    The wick is almost new but several years old.
    Should I just get a new one?
    Thank you!

    Lit the stone and it turned black. Haven’t used in a couple of years. I did add more oil. Is it possible for stone to dry rot?
