    1. Hi Leonie,
      if the problem is because of less wax, place some wax to the end of the cord by diking it in to melted wax such as in burn candle, leave it cold and hard then burn it again.

      Tips is you have to press the melt cord immediately after you blow the fire, before wax getting harder again, this process may hurt your finger a little bit, just do it slowly
