Bethlehem Lights 8.5" Aqua Flame Flameless Candle w/Timer
When I received these candles they were great but all of a sudden the motor stopped and I tried batteries and they did not work either . I bought twelve and so far half of them had the same problem so I sent them back for replacements and the same thing happened within 45 days The adapter does not always work either. This a bad product.
I love the waterfall sound but not that this price of paying for good batteries and using electricity for a bad product.
Like others that have written reviews on this item the fountian stopped on mine. I have used distilled water from the beginning so that shouldn't be the issue. Sadly it's too late to return - I should have gone by the prior reviews before waisting my money.
I've been meaning to write this review forever and here it is. A lot of folks have stated the fountain stopped working after 60 days or so. Mine did the same so I put in new batteries and nothing. I was about to count it as a loss when I decided to try the adapter and lo and behold it worked again. Not sure if my batteries were just too cheap or what, but I'm so glad it's working again. For those whose fountain has stopped working, try the adapter. I love it.
I bought this for my mom and she loves it!!! The water sound is soothing and relaxing. Now I just wish that I would have bought one for myself too. **D
Try Vinegar and baking soda
I love my Agua Flameless candles. I ordered 3, but one didn't work from the get go, and had to send it back. The other two have been working just great, but then one of them stopped running on fountain, although I could still hear the motor running. The other just recently stopped, and I couldn't hear anything. It looked a little 'rusty' from the water, so I thought I would give some vinegar and baking soda a try, just to see. Sure enough I was able to get both running again. I even put the baking soda down the hole where the water comes up, and poured vinegar in there and in the entire well. Sure enough, that did the trick! I did this a few days ago, and they are still running great, so I just wanted to share this.
Love these aqua candles!
These aqua candles look amazing, and I love the bubbly water sound that they make. When turned on, the light flickers, and they look very much like a candle. I haven't had any problems with mine at all. Works exactly as it's supposed to, and I've had it for about two weeks.

I have to agree with a lot of the other reviews. The candle started to leak about a week after I got it. I had already thrown the packing slip and box away since I was only concerned with whether or not it worked when I got it. It's sad that leaking continues to be a problem with this item. At least I can use it as a candle as long as it still works but I won't waste money on batteries now that I know it leaks and I really like the fountain part of the candle. Live and learn.
Received two of these as gifts .....both stopped working within weeks.....sent both back!

So disappointed that this beautiful candle leaked all over my end table. Did not notice the leak until I went to refill because of the water sound getting louder. Ruined my table!!!!!!!
I loved it ... while it lasted
I bought one and absolutely LOVED it. I used the plug and kept it on my kitchen counter, using the timer switch. It made a perfect night light, while adding a nice comforting sound and lovely glow during the evening hours. Unfortunately, it did develop a mold on the inside that I could neither clean nor scrape away; and certainly not for my lack of trying. And then one day it just quit working. No light. No fountain. I was not anticipating it being such a short lived product. Maybe at half the price I would understand, but it wasn't sold as a seasonal item. Great concept but poor execution.

We loved this candle but it quit pumping after just 4 months. We were disappointed! In reading other reviews, we saw that MANY other customers had experienced the same disappointment. We decided to take our candle apart before throwing it away. In doing so, we discovered that a pea-size wad of dust had accumulated in the water and had found it's way to the intake, thus blocking it. We removed the blockage and the candle runs like new! It's a challenge to take the unit apart. However, we've noticed that the intake can be seen with a small mirror once you remove the "mushroom" cap from inside the candle. The cap pops up and off fairly easily. Once the intake is visible, we think that further blockages can be removed with a pair of curved tweezers. This will restore this neat little product to like-new status. Good luck to all! We're giving it just 4 stars only because the sparse instructions did not mention the possibility of and remedy for pump blockages.
Great in my office
I've had it for a few months and love it. I get many compliments from star and visitors. There are two problems which I am not sure I can solve. I noticed what appears to be mold in the lining. I am going to try and add a little bleach while it is off. The other problem is that the candle itself is developing cracks.
