WARNING, When using electric appliances, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
– To disconnect, turn all controls to the off (“O”) position, then remove plug from outlet.
– Unplug from outlet when not in use and before servicing or cleaning.
– To reduce the risk of electrical shock, do not put appliance in water or other liquid.
– This appliance is provided with double insulation. Use only identical replacement parts.
– Connect only to a circuit that is protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter (GFCI).
See instructions for Servicing of Double-Insulated Appliances.

In a double-insulated appliance, two systems of insulation are provided instead of grounding. No grounding means is provided on a double-insulated appliance, nor should a means for grounding be added to the appliance. Servicing of a double-insulated appliance requires extreme care and knowledge of the system, and should be done only by qualified service personnel. Replacement parts for a double-insulated appliance must be identical to those parts in the appliance.

The light bulb life expectancy is approximately 3,000 hours (or about 4 months), and should be replaced regularly to ensure optimal UV effectiveness. Even though the bulb’s light may be visible to you, its ability to attract insects diminishes over time.

  1. Turn power switch to “off” position. UNPLUG UNIT, and allow bulb to cool before replacing. Turn the unit upside down.
  2. Twist the black threaded fastener piece securing the light housing counterclockwise to loosen. Move the light housing to the side.
  3. Twist the two black threaded fastener pieces securing the light and carefully remove the silver clips.
  4. Cover the bulb with a cloth to protect your fingers and hand. Grasp the bulb (with your hand and fingers protected by the cloth) and gently pull the bulb from the socket.
  5. Remove any debris from the lamp socket with a brush before inserting the new bulb. Insert new replacement bulb. Place metal clips in place and secure black threaded fasteners.
  6. Twist the light housing clockwise into place and secure the black threaded fastener. Replacement fluorescent bulbs can be found at your local retailer or can be ordered directly from DynaTrap by calling 1-877-403-TRAP (8727) or visiting www.dynatrap.com


Flying insects are attracted to the unit by the UV light and CO2 that is generated by the photo-catalysis between the UV lamps and the special TiO2 coating. The fan then pulls the insects into the screened base, trapping them until they dehydrate and die. The base can be removed, allowing the contents to be periodically emptied into the trash. The see-through screen shows the insects trapped in the compartment, alerting you when the cage needs to be emptied.
