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

Its always a good idea to change the LED boards with power to the transformer turned off completely. To remove the KG faceplate assembly, remove the two screws on each side of fixture by turning counterclockwise using a phillips screwdriver.

Step 2

Step 3

To remove the KG lens cover assembly, remove the six screws in front of fixture by turning counterclockwise using a phillips screwdriver.

Step 4

The filter can be removed easily by turning counter clockwise.

Step 5

Depending on the size of the LED board, you will have two to three Phillips head screws that need to be removed to access the LED board below the reflector. Carefully remove these screws by turning each counter clockwise.

Step 6

The LED board can now be removed.  Using a small flat bladed screwdriver to pry outward gently on one side of the board taking into account the two pins on the bottom. Make sure the base of the fixture where the LED was removed from is clear of debris or residual thermal pad material.

Step 7

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.
