unit with a soft cloth moistened with a mild solution of water and detergent.
The quartz halogen bulb is the only user-replaceable part in the Spotlight. Periodically inspect the
condition of cords, connectors and wires. Contact Technical Support toll-free at 1-877-571-2391 to

bulb. During installation, avoid touching the glass part of the bulb. Bulb life may be shortened by
installing a bulb with dirt or fingerprints on it. The bulb can be wiped clean with a cloth moistened
