Changing the LED Board on an FX Uplight


Read Article

Tools Required:

  • #2 Philips screwdriver
  • Soft-edged pry device (e.g., small flathead screwdriver)

Step 1

It's always a good idea to change LED boards and lamps with power to the fixture turned off completely.

Step 2

Remove the top shroud from the fixture.

Step 3

Remove any filters attached to the fixture by carefully twisting them counterclockwise. 

Step 4

Remove the two screws holding the reflector to the fixture.

Step 5

The LED board can now be removed. Using a small soft edged pry device gently pry up on one side of the board. Make sure the base of the fixture where the LED was removed from is clear of debris or residual thermal pad material.

Step 6

Once the LED board is successfully removed, perform this procedure backwards to install the replacement board. Not all boards will fit in every fixture, so ensure the fixture can accommodate the selected board prior to maintenance. Also remove any residue left on the fixture from old LED board prior to installation of new one. All FX LED boards come with a pink colored thermal pad attached to the bottom that should be left in place.  Compatible LED boards for uplight fixtures include: ZDCKITL (COLOR), ZD1LEDULKIT-ZD3LEDULKIT-ZD6LEDULKIT-ZD9LEDULKIT (ZD), ZD3LEDT (Wild Life) and 1LEDULKIT-3LEDULKIT-6LEDULKIT-9LEDULKIT (standard).
