Bethlehem Lights 8.5" Aqua Flame Flameless Candle w/Timer
Not sure what to do....I love this so much. First one the pump went out after about 9 months...ordered a second one and the pump only lasted 10 days. 3rd time a charm? It is really nice when if works. Would recommend if it stays working
5, all cracked
There is a design flaw. That is probably the reason they are discounted but they should be pulled rather than trying to sell them. I bought several last year and loved these candle fountains. I saw they were discounted and probably discontinued so purchased 5 more. They all came with cracks running through the wax. There is no inner core so if they are cracked, they leak. I was so disappointed. I then went outside to look at the ones I bought last year that are on our patio. They have all developed cracks too and they leak. Please, Bethlehem Lights go back to the drawing board, put wax around a plastic core that will hold the water and not leak even if the wax cracks and bring them back.
The box this candle was shipped in was so thin it ripped. The candle is made of cheep plastic and is ringed. I had to return two, both for the same thing, they broke at the rings.
The first one had a little puddle under it the first day. I thought the cat tried to drink out of it. The second day I found the entire contents had pored out on my table top and floor. The same thing happened to the second candle.
I had to pay the shipping fees on both and it could have ruined my table and floor.
Most Disappointing Purchase
I purchased this item with excitement because it was such a unique candle. Unfortunately I ended up returning it three times due to two had cracks in the candle and the third candle the waterfall motor not working.
I love this product and find it very unique!
I love this product for several reasons. It can be operated by batteries and used as a centerpiece on your dining room table or plugged into an outlet and used on an end table. I would not buy an "as is" on this product because my first one was cracked and leaked. it is made out of wax so it is fragile. It is very easy to clean and shuts the pump off when the water is to low and I think that is a great safety feature. Everyone that comes to my house makes a nice comment and always ask where I got it.
Unfortunately, this very pretty spa blue candle arrived cracked down the side. Didn't notice it till water was all over the counter. Color is lovely, a true spa blue that would go with turquoise or green or my new pale grey bathroom. Sad to return it.
GREAT IDEA, POOR EXECUTION
Close to a year ago I purchased several of these candle fountains and they have worked beautifully. A few weeks ago I purchased four of the candles on clearance. Noticed many of the rave reviews were from a long time ago and many of the newer reviews were not good at all. The latest ones I purchased were for new babies and every candle leaked. They were all cracked and worked for an evening - we turned them off at night and the next morning we found water all over our kitchen counters. Thankfully we didn't put them on anything that could be ruined like some other posters did. If Bethlehem Lights could work out all the kinks I would be happy to buy more. But not now. It's as if a pallet or two were dropped and cracked but were sold anyway. Very disappointed. Love the old ones which still work beautifully. Quality control needs to up their game!
Had 3 of theses they all went back.
Ether the pump stopped or they cracked & leaked.
The only thing I liked was the size of the candle.
Don't Waste Your Money
Bought four in different colors during initial airing on QVC. One lasted 60 days and the light function stopped and cannot replace the apparatus to re-illuminate product. Within 70 days second candle completely stopped working, light and pump. Both candles were set on light, pump and timer function.
Third candle tested after arrival and worked, however, stored with fall decorations and have not used again. Last one given as a gift, so don't know if it is still working.
50% failure rate is poor results, waste of money and after reading other customer reviews, would suggest to QVC quality control to test product over a period of time for longevity perspective, and with all the complaints, delete this item from your inventory.
Aqua 8.5 Flameless Candle w/timerher
WAS so excited when I saw this as the "Today's Special". Purchased 7 for gifts and one for me. Received, loved it ...lasted four days ..tried another.. ended up all 7 did the same thing lasting 0 to one week. What a disappointment !! It can't be that just mine did not work
Quality control missed this one big time ! What an embarresment as gifts....
I own 2 of these candles and just love them. The combination of the soft light and water sound is just perfect. I have received so many compliments on these. Thank you QVC & Bethlehem Lights for bringing us this product!
pump does not last
Nice candle, had it for 7 months, but the pump does not last at all, such a shame, the light is still okay, I brought 3 of them one for myself and two other friends, theirs did the same thing, maybe next time get the people to make a better pump for the candle, and make it last longer.
I just ordered another one for a friend, but told her it will not last with the little fountain, pump is just too cheap.
