FAQ's

What replacement bulb can I use?

Check the base of the night-light; it is marked with the maximum wattage bulb to be used (for example, it will be marked “5W“ or “5W Max“, this means you can use a 120V, 5 Watt or lower wattage bulb). All night-light bulbs are rated 120Volts.

If you cannot find the maximum wattage marked on the night-light, use a 120V / 4 Watt maximum bulb.

For bubble night-lights, only use a 120V, 5W max UL Classified bubble light bulb. The packaging of this replacement bulb is marked:

Where can I find spare bulbs?

You can find spare night-light bulbs at many retailers, either in the seasonal lighting department or hardware department. Bubble Night-light replacement bulbs are only found in the seasonal lighting department.

What is the input current to the nightlight?

It is equal to the bulb wattage divided by 120Volts. Here are common input currents based on bulb wattages:

Bulb Wattage

Input Current

4W

0.033 Amps

5W

0.042 Amps

7W

0.058 Amps

How many watts does the nightlight use?

Check the night light base, it is marked with the maximum wattage (i.e. it will be marked “5W” or “5W Max”, which means that it uses 5 Watts or less).

Can I put other covers on my night light?

NO - only use the included covers with the night-lights, or you may cause a personal injury or fire hazard.

How long should it take my bubble night-light to start bubbling?

Once the light is turned on it can take from 30 seconds to 5 minutes for the bubbling action to start when at temperatures over 65F. If it does not start after that, see the troubleshooting section for additional details.

What liquid is in the bubble night-light vial?

The Vial contains 95% - 100% methylene chloride.

What do I do if the vial breaks on the bubble light?

If liquid is ingested or comes in contact with your skin, contact your local poison control hotline and tell them that you came in contact with 95% - 100% concentration of methylene chloride.
If fluid gets in eyes, immediately flush with water and immediately contact your doctor or poison control hotline and tell them the fluid was methylene chloride.
If vial breaks but the fluid does not contact anyone, do not breathe in vapors, open window and ventilate the room.
Clean spill by wearing rubber or latex gloves and dispose of rags or paper towel outside the building.

How can I clean the stain left by the bubble light fluid?

The liquid inside bubble lights will stain carpeting, vinyl flooring, upholstery, and other materials. You can try cleaning solutions such as AFTA, but this type of stain is very difficult to remove.

Can I replace the bulb inside the plastic housing of the bubble night-light?

NO. The unit is permanently glued together. If not replaced with the proper light bulb (size, wattage, temperature) the bubbling may not work, may create a fire hazard, or the vial may explode creating a personal injury hazard.
