Changing the LED Board on the DE / JB Down Light


Read Article

Tools Required:

  • #2 Philips screwdriver
  • 5/64” Allen Key
  • Soft-edged pry device (e.g., small flathead screwdriver)

Step 1

Turn off power to the fixture completely before changing the LED board in any fixture.

Step 2

Remove the lens and shroud by loosening the set screw using a hex key 5/64 and pulling off the shroud.

Step 3

Remove any filters from the reflector by turning the filters counter-clockwise and lifting them off of the reflector.

Step 4

Remove the screws holding the reflector and LED board in place and remove the reflector.

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 reflector where the LED was removed 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.
