Yes, how are you melting it? When melting in a bain marie, be sure that you keep the heat to a simmer so that steam doesn't billow up out of the pot and into your bowl. ;0)

Too, if you're melting it in a microwave, chances are that you're scorching it, which a microwave does extremely well. Once it has either seized (in the presence of water) or scorched, unfortunately you have to kiss it good bye and start over.
