How To Use Our Melter

Before you begin, ensure your stainless steel tap is in the off position (lever facing left). Add your product to the pot, between the minimum and maximum lines. It should not exceed the 'MAX' line and not be below the 'MIN' line. Connect your melter to electricity, and set the thermostat to your desired temperature (left control), as well as put your timer to a set time (right control). If the middle switch is selected ‘On’ an alarm beep will notify you that the base has reached it’s temperature and your product will begin to melt. Once it reaches this set grade, you can turn off the alarm and adjust your timer clockwise to suit your required manufacturing time. Alternatively, you can turn the timer anti-clockwise to “continuous” to allow the melter to keep heating constantly.

When you are ready, slowly release the tap to remove the melted product, the machine will be hot so be careful during this step. When finished cut the electricity, turn off the thermostat and turn your timer to off ready to use next time.

Please note the switch above the indicator light is to enable the timer alarm function. This does not affect the heating process and the melter can be used when this is turned off.

Safety Information

  • Remove packaging before use.
  • Wipe clean with a damp cloth before use.
  • Take care when handling the vessel and any metal surfaces whilst it is in use, as these will be hot.
  • This product uses an AC power supply with a rated voltage of 230V/50-60HZ.
  • Do not use if the plug or wire is damaged.
  • Do not use if the if the power plug is not fully inserted into the plug socket.
  • Do not bend the wire or exert force onto them as this may cause damage.
  • Do not insert the plug into an overloaded socket or extension lead. The current should not exceed the limit of the socket.
  • Do not use the product in damp places, close to flames or heat sources.
  • Make sure the power switch is "off" before unplugging the power cord from the socket.
  • Make sure the melter has been unplugged before pouring out the remaining wax and cleaning the product.
  • Use the product on a clean and stable work surface.
  • Do not turn on the product if there is no product in the bucket as this can cause dry burning.
  • Do not immerse the product into water/liquids as this can cause electric shock.
  • Do not remove the product lid when the item is in use.
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • If smoke or burning smell is detected, unplug immediately.
  • Always turn off the item and un-plug when not in use.

Care & Maintenance

  • Ensure the power supply is switched off before cleaning.
  • Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
  • Do not immerse in water or any other liquid.
  • Ensure the tap is clear of any wax after using to avoid blockages.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaning materials as this can scratch the surface.
  • Excessive scale build up can occur and affect the performance of the heating components, therefore descaling is essential to maintain the product. To descale we recommend adding a few spoonful's of baking soda or vinegar into the bucket with a small amount of boiling water and left to soak. Rinse with clean water and dry off with a dry soft cloth. To clean the exterior use a damp soft cloth when the melter is cool.

Wax Melter FAQs

Why does the red light go on and off?

When operating a wax melter, the start-up light will illuminate upon initially setting the temperature and timer gauge. This serves as an indication that the melter is functioning. Additionally, the light will periodically illuminate to signal that it is working towards reaching the set temperature. It is important to note that the light will intermittently turn on and off during the melting process, which is completely normal.

My melter is beeping – is there something wrong?

The beeping sound coming from your wax melter is completely normal and is attributed to the Timer Alarm. This alarm is activated by the middle switch on the front of the melter. When the switch is set to the "on" position (l), the alarm will sound to notify you that the temperature you have set has been achieved and the products are now melting. You can switch off the alarm by setting the switch to the "off" position (o). Additionally, you have the option to set a timer for the desired duration of heating or turn the timer control dial anti-clockwise to the "continuous" position to ensure the melter stays heated at the set temperature.

How long does it take to melt all my wax/soap?

When utilizing the wax melter, the melting times will vary depending on the specific product and the amount being melted. The melting time can be influenced by the substances and materials present in each base, so it may require some experimentation to determine the optimal duration. Another helpful tip is to check the melting point of the product, which is typically indicated on the MSDS. It is important to remember that the melter is designed to melt gradually and at a slower pace in order to minimise the risk of burning.

Is it normal for the melter to melt the centre of my product first and eventually the sides?

Yes, the melter is ingeniously designed to heat slowly and prevent any unwanted burning. The heating elements are cleverly placed at the base of the melter, so it's important to allow ample time for the heat to conduct upwards. Additionally, it's recommended to stir occasionally to ensure even distribution of heat throughout the wax or soap.

My tap is blocked, what do I do?

If you've turned the tap forward to the central position and find that the melted wax/soap isn't flowing out, it's possible that there's a blockage. We recommend waiting, allowing the stainless-steel tap to properly conduct heat while the temperature is set on continuous mode, this will help with melting of the substance in the tap. As an alternative, you can cautiously use a heat gun to melt the solidified wax or soap inside.

The temperature on the dial is different to my thermometer?

Our machines have a slight variability of 5-7 degrees compared to traditional thermometers. This is due to the carefully selected material components used to maintain consistent warmth in the melters. For optimal results, we recommend pouring the melted wax or soap into a separate jug, allowing you to add your fragrances and create the perfect end product.
