  • When installing the bulbs make sure you are not touching them with bare hands or gloves
    These bulbs are sensitive - oils from hands or powders from gloves will soak into them and cause them to burn out quickly. Use a dry paper towel or the bubble wrap your bulb came in to handle them.
  • Make sure to use the manufacturer recommended bulbs
    Our bulbs are 130 volt - common store bought bulbs are 120 volt. These will last about 1-3 months in your unit.
  • Make sure to put clean empty deli pans in the unit during preheat cycle
    If this is not done, heat rises directly up into the bulbs and sockets and may cause problems over time.
  • Make sure light switch is off when installing new bulbs
  • Use caution while cleaning
    Sometimes cleaning solutions or water/liquid can get into lights and socket fixtures causing them to burn out.
