More about Wiring a Tanning Bed Circuit Electric Circuit Listing The size of the home electrical service panel is designed by calculating the square footage of the home and factoring in the code requirements for the electrical circuits that are required. How to Lay Down in a Tanning Bed Place the goggles on your eyes when you get into the tanning bed. Thanks This electrical question came from: Nona, a Homeowner from Andalusia, Alabama.
There are only 4 ways to wire them. The only thing you cannot connect to the red leg are 120 volt loads. Once this is known then the specific materials may be identified, such as wire type and size, cable or conduit, fasteners, circuit breaker, receptacle box, outlet and cover. You should check the nameplate or manufacturer's installation instructions, to determine the actual electrical requirements. Guide to Wiring a Tanning Bed Electrical Question: I am moving into a rental house and I have a tanning bed. Nothing is going to survive twice the recommended voltage.
This is not a medical forum, nor does anyone do medical diagnosis. Then just connect the ballasts and lamps per the ballast diagrams. Mine would take a look at my red hair, and plug me into 220!! If the tanning bed doesn't actually pull 220 amperes which I'm sure it doesn't. So I disconnected another, leaving two bulbs. Make sure to refer to the tanning bed manufacturers Installation Manual for the Electrical Circuit Requirements and the Wiring Connections for the specific tanning bed that you have. Connect the outgoing load black wire to terminal 4.
Estimated Time: Depends on personal level experience, ability to work with tools and install electrical circuit wiring. This means the circuit breaker is connected directly to the outlet or junction box the tanning bed is plugged into, and nothing else. Any suggestions on what might be wrong? As long as the number matches up you can just cut the old ballast out and it wire the new one in. Here's how to do the wiring for your use, assuming a 120 volt supply circuit and a 120 volt lighting or other load : Connect the incoming power line black wire to terminal 3. Let me know what you think. You can also wiggle the wires at the tombstones and see if the bulbs light up.
That means one outlet is connected to another which is connected to another and so on to the end of the run of wire. Wiring 220 Volt Electrical Outlet Home electrical wiring includes 110 volt outlets and 220 volt outlets and receptacles which are common place in every home. Buck boosters or autotransformers will do either function depending on how they are wired. Buck-boosters lower buck or raise boost voltage to compensate for these fluctuations. I just bought a tanning bed commercial SunTana SunSystem from an individual who used it at home since it was new 10 years ago. Of course, each of these requires the equivalent rated breaker in the service panel. An electrician must wire them into a junction box or buck-booster in the room with the tanning bed.
Amp 24 Sun Industries I ran power to the bed without reading the nameplate first. Any ideas for what I should do next? Boosters raise or lower the voltage at a certain ratio, they do not regulate the voltage just change it and the output will fluctuate directly with the input. When the power comes in it appears to go almost directly to a transformer. The voltage would need to be bucked on these services. If bed comes on when pushing down on contactor with a plastic ink pen, then check the timer by turning on the timer and checking the voltage at the Main Relay Coil. Mine would take a look at my red hair, and plug me into 220!! All local wiring codes should be followed for safety - you don't want to kill anyone or the bed.

I'm sure I've tried to turn the machine on correctly, but I'll keep looking into that. Buck boosters are required for all beds that incorporate choke ballasts and are operating on voltage below 220 or above 240. You obviously meant 240 Volts, not 240 amps.
Regardless of the price point. Continued use above 230V may damage the unit and void your warranty. I did call the company and ask them to send me the wiring schematics on it and they said they do not have one since its an older model and i need to find a electrician that works on beds. Work in electrical panels is not recommended for homeowners, non-experienced individuals or non-electricians. I did not see if the required circuit for the tanning bed will be 240 volts or 120 volts.
Remove top or bottom cover as necessary, Locate bad ballast, Insert small insulated screwdriver into slot on end of ballast and pull out wire, Remove one screw that holds ballast in place and loosen the other screw, The end of the Ballast should be slotted - so pull it out from loosened screw. The company is simply trying to push responsibility off on someone else. I'm just kidding, but real Doc might give you an earful. You probably have T8 ballasts controlling your lights which are electronic. If you replace tombstones, be sure to select the same style shunted or unshunted electronic ballasts will be shunted. Below is a sample of what each Tanning session will cost you based on National Average of. Before it's too late meaning before I kill myself , I'm going to call an electrician to look at it and run a dedicated line as described in an earlier post.
Hi Robert, When wiring a 4wire circuit the ground and neutral wires should be separately terminated appropriately, not together, unless otherwise instructed in the installation manual for the equipment. Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced — Best performed by a Licensed Electrician. Any suggestions on what might be wrong? I couldn't find a fuse anywhere. I don't care how old it is. If no voltage, then the timer is bad. Other than that they are not especially complicated, just power through time to bulb ballasts.
