I have a mark i tanning bed with a token timer need wiring diagram please for tanning bed

tanning beds are no longer acceptable because they are a proven source of melanoma cancers with a high death rate of users

They concentrate UV rays that are the main cause of the cancer

Now that you still want to promote your own demise from cancer, have a electrician check the wiring out as you are not qualified to do that and simply put the power wire in to the time on to the power put wire to the timer and feel free to burn your self to death

In this country tanning beds are declared illegal and they cannot be sold , modified or imported because of the extreme problem with cancers . All tanning salons have thrown them in the junk heap

Tan america 3200 vip bed. Could you show me a diagram for wiring

consider this ---tan beds are the major source of melanoma cancers after sun burn
melanoma cancers are the highest cause of deaths as they are not found until too late
consider this--- is fixing this machine worth killing yourself for a tan
if you don't care then go google to the manufacturer and download the diagram if it is available.

I need to find out how to set the digitan control panel or where to find an owners manual for a 1997 royal sun 63 vhr tanning bed or a similar unit. Michelle

contact the manufacturer for the manual
As a side point of interest, tanning beds use account for more than 80% of cancer melanoma ( deadly cancer) of the skin and have been banned in several countries
Think very carefully about using it as it is not worth the ego of a tanned skin now or in the future when the cancers appear.

Can you put a higher uva bulb in a puretan ellipse bed. Im thinking og buying a used bed but i know that i can only use level 2 beds with out getting terrible rashes

I suggest that you think very carefully about using this equipment

One in every 3 melanoma cancers can be directly linked to the use of these machines ( that is probably why it is being sold)

Melanoma cancers are terminal cancers. Increasing the strength of the equipment will increase the death risk 100%

Talk with a cancer doctor, go google and type in solar beds and cancers and get some facts before you invest in this type of equipment.

Do only older people get affected by skin cancer?

No - that's definitely not true. In the past, people over the age of 50 were more likely to suffer from melanoma. But now dermatologists are seeing people much younger, even teenagers with this cancer.

Does visiting a tanning salon increase your risk of skin cancer?

Yes, unfortunately, tanning in a salon is just as risky as exposure to UltraViolet rays from the sun. One research claimed that 4 visits to a tanning booth in a year increased your risk of melanoma by 11 percent.
