Tips on How to replace LED Light?
Assuming you have brought your new LED light and you are ready to do your own replacing. I swear it’s really easy if you do it correctly!
Best Timing to Replace LED Lights
Choose a timing when your kids are napping or someone can keep them busy away. Its important that you OFF the switch when you go up to touch the cables. So, I always turn down offer for help and do it myself.
Preparation before Replace LED Lights
Before you stands up to reach the light, screw on all the magnetic screws onto your new LED light’s holes. You need 2 for the driver box too. It is important to secure the driver box on the casing because it may burst either by itself or by the heat of the light IF it drop off to the front of the LED light. Driver box should always be beside the LED light. If there is no space, place it behind.
Where to connect the Live or Neutral cable when replace LED Lights?
Look at your old LED light, look for the cable connector. The cable connector is the one that connects the direct power and the LED light cable. The one that I provide is white in colour and has 2 slots. Your old connector could be in black or some other colours. Some use really old cable connector that requires to screw and unscrew cable. It’s up to you if you want to change the cable connector.
Btw, there is no Live or Neutral cable in LED light, so it doesn’t matter which is left or right. And, the earth cable you can connect it as well or leave it alone
What to Throw or Remove?
Your old LED lights should be using magnetic screws also. (the older type maybe screw on to the base) Meaning, you can remove the whole set of LED light by pulling it off the casing. No unscrewing here. Now, all you need to do is remove the old LED light cable from the connector and put in the new light cable. Stick the magnets in place ensuring that driver box is not blocking the light.
That’s it! If you have screwed or clip the cables correctly, the light should be working when you switch it on. 😊👍 You have successfully replace your LED Light!
