4. Replacing Parts.
4.1 Replacing the lamp - general
4. Remove the panels to expose the lamp
connections (see below).
It is very important that your replacement
lamp is exactly the same as the one it was
supplied with. Failure to fit the exact same
type could cause the heater to fail or even
become dangerous especially when used in
an outdoor environment.
Please contact AmbiRad to purchase your
replacement lamp and state the model
number of the heater you wish to fit the
lamp to.
Your new lamp should not be handled with
bare hands.
Remove finger marks with a soft cloth and
methylated spirits or alcohol. Finger marks
will burn into quartz causing premature
lamp failure.
5. Disconnect lamp leads from terminal plates,
and remove lamp retaining clips (see diagram
below).
If you are in any doubt about following the
procedure below, please contact us for
technical assistance. The mains power
should be disconnected before any attempts
are made to replace the lamp. The following
should be carried out with compliance to the
latest IEE regulations. If you are unfamiliar
