    Buy new a new lamp - I've bought two used enlargers in the past and both had similar problems to what you describe.

    I found in my LPL 6700 the bulb was not properly seated in its socket resulting in long exposures. Easy fix.

    thanks, I'll try reseating the bulb - it's pressed fully down, which may be too low. I'm new to APUG - all this help is terrific!

    That sounds OK. Forte Warmtone is very slow (some people like this as they have more time for burning and dodging).

    That turned out to be the problem - I doubled the light by raising the lamp half a centimeter. Thanks!
