Congratulations on the purchase of your new CHAUVET lighting effect. We are confident
you will enjoy many trouble free hours with this unit. To assist with the care and use of the
product we have prepared this short guide.
In order to replace the lamps, disconnect from main power supply first, and unscrew the 3
screw fixings to remove the lamp replacement cover (the head of the unit), which is
highlighted on the diagram (fig.1). Only use the appropriately rated lamps as use of any
other lamp type may cause the unit to be non-operational.
Due to the nature of halogen lamps it is vitally important that you do not touch the new
replacement lamp with your fingers, as this will reduce lamp life considerably. Once again
a tissue or cloth can be used for fitting the replacement lamp.
Finally before using, check that the lamps are housed correctly in the lamp holders and
that the lamp replacement cover has been screwed back into place. The lamps may prove
a little difficult to install as they have been designed to be tightly fitted due to the
movement of the motor.
If after replacement of the lamps, the unit is still not working then please CHAUVET for
Replacing Fuses
If the unit does not function at all when connected to the main power supply i.e. the fan
does not rotate or the mechanism does not spin. Then it is highly likely that the fuse has
Before connecting this unit to the mains power supply for the first time you must first install
the lamps. (See ‘Replacing Lamps’ for details).
Disconnect from main power supply before attempting to replace either lamps or fuse.
This lighting effect has been designed to function on a mains power supply of either
120V~60Hz or 230V~50Hz and has been fitted with a suitable power plug for use with
your local voltage. Check the label and voltage selector switch (if fitted) on the unit and the
power plug for the correct voltage.
In order to replace the fuse, disconnect from the main power supply first, and then
unscrew the fuseholder cover to reveal the fuse. The unit has a label attached which
indicates the correct fuse rating and you will also find this listed as part of the
specifications for the unit later in this guide. It is most important that replacement fuses are
of the correct rating. Failure to use the correct fuse could damage the lighting effect
beyond economic repair.
When connected to the mains power supply the unit should illuminate and the fan should
rotate. As the effect is sound activated it may be necessary to adjust the audio sensitivity
Due to the high operating temperature of halogen lamps it is advisable that the effect be
used in well ventilated areas taking care not to obstruct the air vents or the fan. After use
allow time to ‘cool’ for safety and to ensure lamp life before moving or touching.
The duty cycle for this effect should be no more than 15 minutes on then 15 minutes off.
Installation / Mounting
This unit has been designed to be hung. It is recommended that, for safety purposes, your
lighting effect be properly mounted using a suitable hanging clamp and safety cable.
CHAUVET offers a range of items, which are ideal for safe mounting.
Use in a well-ventilated area without obstruction to the fan.
Replacing Lamps
1. Disconnect from main power supply before attempting to replace either lamps or fuse.
2. Ensure that the unit is sufficiently cool, before removing blown lamps.
3. Never touch new lamps with your fingers; use a tissue or a cloth.
The fuse should simply be placed inside the holder and the screw cap replaced, when this
is done connect to the main power supply to check. If the unit is still not working then
please contact CHAUVET for servicing.
The most important part of your lighting effect to keep clean are the lenses as they allow
the light output to transmit. These should be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. The body of
the unit may also be cleaned in the same way. We recommend internal cleaning be
carried out by a fully qualified technician.
Maintenance & Servicing
Work on internal parts should be carried out by a qualified technician. Removal of any
covers other than the lamp replacement access or the fuseholder is considered a breach
of warranty and will not be covered under any such agreement unless authorized first by
