In order to replace the lamps, disconnect from main power supply first, and unscrew the lamp
replacement cover, 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. In situations where only one lamp
has blown, it is advisable that you replace both lamps together for efficiency and ease.
Finally before using, check that the lamps are housed correctly in the lamp holder and that the
lamp replacement cover has been screwed back into place.

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.
Before connecting this unit to the mains power supply for the first time you must first install the
lamps. (See ‘Replacing Lamps’ for details).
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.
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 control.
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.
If after replacement of the lamps, the unit is still not working then please contact your dealer or
CHAUVET for servicing.
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 blown.
Disconnect from main power supply before attempting to replace either lamps or fuse.
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.
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
your dealer or 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
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 the company.
• If the unit is not functional – check main power supply is ‘on’ and check fuses.
• If the unit is functional but lamps do not light - lamps may require replacing.
• If the unit lights but will not move - adjust sensitivity control.
If after trying this solution you still have a problem contact your dealer or CHAUVET.
