I finally spent the additional $12 for a new lid but it came with the wax container (which I didn't need at all). They informed me " There is a small notch on the front of the Lid.
When placed on the Warmer matching the notch and the hole correctly the Lid becomes morestable. If you would like to purchase a new one you can do so through Scentsy.com or a consultant. . The product name is NEW YORK YANKEES™ - DISH AND LID and is available for a price of $12.00.".
The replacement part came, and is the same as before. I am afraid to use it in the family room as I don't want to break it again.
It was a gift from our daughter......therefore it is now in the living room, not used, and I dust it once a week. :=( I would not recommend it to anyone unless you would like another "dust-collector" Lynne
Product or Service Mentioned: Scentsy New York Yankees Candle Warmer.
