Replacing Lamps
• Lens
• Mode Switch
• Fan
• Fuse
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.
In order to replace the lamp, 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.
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.
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 lamp is housed correctly in the lamp holder and that the
lamp replacement cover has been screwed back into place.
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.
If after replacement of the lamp, 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 mechanism does not spin. Then it is highly likely that the fuse has blown.
When connected to the mains power supply the unit should illuminate. This effect has three
modes of operation - static, continuous rotation or sound activated. There is a selector switch
at the rear which determines the mode (see fig.1).
Disconnect from main power supply before attempting to replace either lamps or fuse.
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. After use allow time to 'cool'
for safety and to ensure lamp life before moving or touching.
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.
Installation / Mounting
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.
Although this unit can be used in an upright position, 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 air vents.
Replacing Effect Dish
The most important part of your lighting effect to keep clean is the lens as it allows the light
output to transmit. This 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
Disconnect from main power supply before attempting to replace effects dish.
Simply remove bottom cover which will reveal the lamp, holder and dish. The dish is held in
place with two small screws, which when removed allow the dish to be removed from the
Work on internal parts should be carried out by a qualified technician. Removal of covers
other than the front to replace lamp or effect dish, or the fuseholder is considered a breach of
warranty and will not be covered under any such agreement unless authorized first by the
