  • DANGER! The GE BTL Q500T6/CL/P replacement lamp operates at extremely high temperatures that can cause serious physical injuries and property damage.
  • Only use the GE BTL replacement lamp in Halogen-approved fixtures. Fixtures should fully contain any parts of the Halogen lamp upon the event of a lamp burst.
  • Do not use the Q500T6/CL/P BTL GE replacement lamp in close proximity of paper, cloth or other combustible materials that can cause a fire hazard.
  • Lamps are very fragile. Do not drop, crush, bend or shake them. Vibration or impact will cause filament breakage and short lamp life.
  • Do not touch the GE BTL bulb surface or inside reflectors with your bare hands. Oils from skin can lead to breakage or shorten the life of the lamp. Use clean gloves or lint-free cloth for installation and removal.
  • Clean any dirt, oil, or lint away from the bulb with alcohol and a lint-free cloth or tissue. Any foreign particles or materials on the BTL GE replacement bulb surface can cause hot spots on the bulb and result in lamp failure.
  • Never touch the GE BTL lamp when it is on, or soon after it has been turned off, as it is hot and may cause serious burns.
  • Do not look directly at the operating bulb for any period of time; this may cause serious eye injury.
  • Always turn off the electrical power before inserting, removing, or cleaning the replacement GE BTL lamp.
  • Affix the BTL GE replacement lamp securely in the socket. Improper installation of the GE BTL replacement lamp will cause electrical arcing, overheating and short life to lamp and socket. Replace lamp holders and sockets when necessary.
  • Keep the temperature of the GE BTL lamp seal below 350C.
  • Keep the temperature of the BTL GE replacement lamp wall above 250C.
  • Keep the temperature of the GE BTL Q500T6/CL/P lamp wall below 800C.
  • Make sure lamps of specified wattage and voltage are only used in appropriately rated fixtures. Unspecified use will lead to short lamp life, breakage and overheating of fixture.
  • GE BTL replacement lamps should not be operated beyond the total rated voltage. Avoid the use of dimmers that may drive your lamp over its rated voltage.
  • Operate the GE BTL Q500T6/CL/P replacement lamp only in the indicated burn position. Failure to do so will lead to overheating and shortened lamp life.
  • Use an external fuse when required.
  • Do not allow one lamp to directly expose another. This may lead to overheating and shortened lamp life.
