Starpower Facial Lamps Blowing

We have a Starpower 548 from ETS. Over the last few months we have had a problem with the facial lamps blowing. For instance, we changed one about 2 weeks ago. Now, we have 2 out (one is the same as the one we replaced). There has to be something that is making them go out. Help!

Re: Starpower Facial Lamps Blowing

is there any part of the lamp touching the metal clips. If they are touching, they will not last very long.

Re: Starpower Facial Lamps Blowing

Sounds like poor cooling. Do the lamps look like bloated guppies?

Re: Starpower Facial Lamps Blowing

give the bed a good cleaning and check the voltage coming into the bed to make sure you are not running to high of a voltage
no one ever considers this but it does happen

your voltage at your location can change do to changes in whats going on around your building
etc a walmart next door all of a sudden will make it dip a lil lol

Re: Starpower Facial Lamps Blowing

Try Philips 400W lamps in ETS beds, they seem to last longer. Make sure the rotary fans are working. Take a look at the contact points of the two ceramic holders, make sure there aren't any burn marks.
