I've bought three of these - within 6 months two of them blew; seems to be the sensor but the unit is sealed so there's nothing to repair.
The other that I had for only 3 days had the bulb pressed against the inside of glass so it started to burn.
I should have learnt my lesson the first time. The idea, design and feel is beautiful - just a shame that they are made so poorly.
I rang Mathmos to ask them and they said "Oh yeah we've heard of them stopping after a year but 6m is quite quick" - they suggested some gibberish about plugging it into a socket with no current for 8h. No offer of refund.
So buy it, love it for 6m then mourn your loss.
