I'm reading this with interest after purchasing the alarm lamp 8 months ago as a gift for my husband. Up until last weekend it worked perfectly and we loved it - and then late one night we switched it off, were just dropping off to sleep and the trouble started! There was a strange glow, followed by flashing and buzzing, and then an unpleasant smell of overheating! Quite concerning really! We were glad that we were awake enough to deal with it (by quickly unplugging it!), and that we had been at home!
We tested the lamp in other sockets and checked the user guide for any useful tips that may highlight a simple issue, but to no avail. Sadly the lamp is being returned to Amazon as soon as possible and I will be sourcing an alternative product.
