Default Wax too hot???

I got a call from a lady today, where I am setting up a display..she is a nursing home director. She asked me if there was anyway that she could use a smaller wattage light bulb in the full size warmer I had give her to display because the wax was reading 140 degrees and because of safety reasons she can't have it that hot? Would a small wattage bulb work? Have any of you encountered this?

Wow I would almost try another bulb. That bulb may be defective, the temp should not get that hot.

Ask if she held the thermometer directly onto the base of the bowl, the ceramic will retain the heat and that may be 140 degrees but no way should the wax be that hot. The wax should not be any hotter than your body temp.

Try a new bulb and see what happens, even watch how she takes the temp of the wax.
