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 wick is too long for your lamp - The longer Lampe Berger 3C Burner / Wick is designed for use in taller lamps.  If you use this longer Lampe Berger 3C Burner / Wick in an average to short height fragrance lamp you may experience a problem with the burner getting too saturated and not staying lit.
  2. 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.
  3. Your wick needs replacement - You should replace your Lampe Berger Wick / Burner every year or 200 uses, whatever comes first.

If you are using the right length wick, original Lampe Berger fragrance oils and your burner is not in need of replacement, 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.

    DJumala, if the ceramic head looks wet before you lit it, it sounds like the lamp may be filled too high. As stated above in our blog post – 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. Remove your wick for 24 hours and let it dry, then follow the first time instructions for your lamp. If you have followed all of these steps and it still is not working, it may time for a new wick.

    I’ve tries what you suggested but my lamp only work for couple of minutes then it died. I’m using original oil, wick and bottle. The ceramic head looks wet before I lit it.
