Bubbling Of Kitchen Counter Laminate

Any ideas on what might cause bubbling of a countertop? I had 3 bubbles, one over the dishwasher,( which I can understand). There was no problem heating it up and rolling it out to get rid of the bubble. The other two seem to have excess material, I tried prying it off up to the point of the bubbles, but there still appears to be a dimple in the laminate even when it is all loose from the counter. I think my only option now is to replace the whole thing. Frustrated because I can't figure out what I did wrong, and I've done dozens of these things.

you have to watch the dates on the cans, and once the glue is opened it has a very short shelf life, also needs to be stirred before using even out of a new can. other then that maybe an oil spot on something

Re: Bubbling Of Kitchen Counter Laminate

I am not a laminate guy. Just thought id say that first haha

But.... Only things I can think of is
glue failure but you think it would be flat
indents on the other hand could cause it.

never tried it.... but a heat gun might work. heat the bubble then place something heavy on it.
either way it might keep failing. Might be right on the rip up
