Changing the LED Board on the LE Down Light


Read Article

Tools Required:

  • 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

Loosen the set screw holding the reflector or shroud on the light using a 5/64 hex key and remove it.

Step 3

Remove any filters from the fixture by gently using a soft edged device to remove the filters and expose the LED boards.


Step 4

Remove the screws holding the LED board in place.

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 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.
