Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

 

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Connecting Micro Cable connectors to Micro Expansion Board Ports

Take extra care when inserting the micro connectors to micro ports of Micro Expansion Boards. Connecting Micro Bit Lights to Micro Expansion Boards is similar to connecting lights and cables to Strip Lights. With the expansion board facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it. Use your fingernail to push the plastic part of the connector to the micro port.

 

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) We will first install lights to the christmas tree on the side of the Gingerbread House. First disconnect the star followed by the four panel sections around the tree.

 

Disconnect the bottom sections from the front of the star as shown below, then reconnect the 1×2 plate with open studs.

 

 

2.) Take a Flashing White 15cm Bit Light and place it in between the two open studs, in the centre of the star. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans yellow triangular pieces over the top.

 

Thread the other end of the Bit Light cable through the gap at the bottom of the star, then pull the cable all the way out from behind. Reconnect the star to the tree.

 

 

3.) We will now light up the tree panels starting with the two that have the two trans yellow round plates on them. Take one panel and disconnect the bottom triangular plate from underneath, then disconnect the trans yellow round plate from the top.

 

Take a Flashing White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing away from you, place it directly over the green stud as shown below. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans yellow round plate over the top.

 

Disconnect the following few pieces from the bottom of the panel, then take another Flashing White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing the right, place it over the green stud. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans yellow round plate, followed by the other pieces we disconnected earlier.

 

 

4.) Fold the cable from the left underneath the plate as shown below, then take the cable from the right and bring it under the plate and lay it in between the studs of the plate that connects underneath this section. Reconnect the sections ensuring the cables are laid in between studs.

 

 

5.) Follow the previous steps to install another 2x Flashing White 15cm Bit Lights to the other tree panel with two trans yellow round plates.

 

 

6.) Take one of the panels and fold the two bit light cables down so they are facing the bottom. Tuck the top cable down underneath in the side of the plate, then reconnect the panel to the front of the tree.

 

Turn the tree around and bring the cable from the star down and lay it in between the studs before reconnecting the other panel over it. Ensure the top cable from the panel is also laid underneath the plate on the side.

 

 

7.) Take the other two tree panels and disconnect sections from one of them to install another Flashing White 15cm Bit Light to it.

 

Fold the Bit Light cable underneath the plate and lay it in between studs of the plate that it connects on top of, then securely reconnect the plates together.

 

 

8.) Repeat the previous step to install another Flashing White 15cm Bit Light to the remaining tree panel.

 

Fold each cable down toward the bottom of each panel, then reconnect each panel to the tree ensuring you connect the plates over the Bit Light cables from the other panels underneath.

 

 

9.) Turn the tree around so that we are facing the back, then connect all seven bit light cables to an 8-Port Expansion Board. Take the AA Battery Pack and insert 3x NEW batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to the expansion board, then turn it ON to test all the flashing lights installed to the tree are working OK.

 

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

10.) Disconnect the Battery Pack and all seven lights from the expansion board. From the back of the tree, twist all the cables around each other all the way to the ends so it forms one larger cable.

 

Reconnect the all the lights to the expansion board, then neatly bunch up the cables toward the end so they all come together. Position the components behind the tree, then connect a 30cm Connecting Cable to the remaining port. We will use this cable to connect to the rest of the Gingerbread House lights later on.

 

 

11.) We will now install lights to the Gingerbread House. We will need to disconnect quite a few sections from the top. First turn the set around to the back and disconnect the two roof sections as shown below:

 

Continue to remove roof and chimney sections as per below:

 

 

12.) Turn the set around to the front, then disconnect the following sections on top of the fire place to allow us to remove the LEGO light brick section.

 

Remove the window wall section, followed by the front roof, then continue to remove sections from the top of the fire place.

 

 

13.) Use your LEGO Removal Tool to create a gap between the white and brown plates above the front door, then disconnect the two lamps at the front.

 

Disconnect the black round plate from one of the lamps, then take a White 15cm Bit Light and place it directly over the stud of the black round plate. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the lamp over the top, ensuring the cable is facing the back of the lamp.

 

Wind the cable around the lamp post, then bring the lamp towards the house and thread the cable through the gap we created earlier, pulling the cable out from the inside until we can reconnect the lamp to the front.

 

 

14.) Repeat previous step to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the other lamp, then thread the cable through the gap and reconnect it to the front of the house.

 

Ensure both cables are laid in between the brown studs, then close up the gap by securely reconnecting the top section.

 

Turn the set around and connect the two Bit Light cables we just installed to a 6-Port Expansion Board. Take the AA Battery Pack and connect it to a spare port on the expansion board, then turn it ON to test the two front lamps are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

15.) We will now light up both front and inside sections of the fireplace. First disconnect the AA Battery Pack from the expansion board, then disconnect the chair followed by the fire section from the inside fireplace, by the black 2×4 plate as shown below:

 

Turn the set around, then disconnect the fire section from the front of the firepalce by the black 2×4 plate.

 

 

16.) Take one of the fire sections and disconnect and discard the trans orange round plate from the front. Take a White 15cm Bit Light and ensuring the cable is facing the right side, place it over the black stud underneath where the trans orange stud was. Secure the Bit Light in place by connecting a provided LEGO Trans Orange Round Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

Disconnect and disassemble the flame section behind, then install another White 15cm Bit Light ensuring the cable is this time laid toward the left side.

 

Using a pair of scissors, snip the tip at the bottom of the flame piece off to allow us to then reconnect the flame section to the trans orange stud as shown below:

 

Group the two Bit Light cables together, then thread both cables up the chimney in the inside of the set. Pull them out from the top, then reconnect the black 2×4 plate.

 

 

17.) Repeat the previous step to install another 2x White 15cm Bit Lights to the fire place section on the front side. Discard the trans orange round plate with open stud that came with the set and replace it with another provided LEGO Trans Orange Round Plate 1×1.

 

Turn the set around to the front, then group the two Bit Light Cables from the fire section and thread them up the chimney, pulling them both out from above. Reconnect the fire place via the black 2×4 plate.

 

 

18.) Connect all four Bit Light cables from the fireplace to a new 6-Port Expansion Board, then take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to a spare port. Connect the other end of the 5cm Cable to one of the OUT ports on a Flicker Effects Board. Take the AA Battery Pack and connect it to the IN port on the Flicker Effects Board, then turn the power ON to test the fireplace lights are working and flickering OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

Disconnect the AA Battery Pack from the flicker effects board, then reconnect the chair back to the inside of the house. Hide the cables from the fireplace by using your LEGO removal tool to push down and cables from each side of the fireplace down into each corner.

 

 

19.) Use the LEGO Removal Tool to create gaps just above the bottom floor, underneath the white plates, then disconnect the entire top floor as shown below.

 

Disconnect the two candles above the fireplace, then disconnect the brown 1×6 plate above to allow us to remove the following wall sections.

 

 

20.) Take one of the candles and disconnect the flame piece, then take a White 15cm Micro Bit Light and slightly bend the LED down so that we can place it inside the candle as shown below. With the LED inside the hole of the candle, reconnect the flame piece to secure the light in place, then reconnect the candle on top of the fire place ensuring the cable is laid behind.

 

Repeat this step to install another White 15cm Micro Bit Light to the other candle.

 

 

21.) Ensure the Micro Bit Light cables are laid in between studs of the brown plate behind, then reconnect the wall sections over the top. Connect the lights to a Micro 4-Port Expansion Board, then take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the larger port on the expansion board. Connect the other end of the connecting cable to a different OUT port on the Flicker Effects Board.

 

Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the IN port on the Flicker Effects Board, then bring the other end of the cable across the right and connect it to a spare port on the 6-Port Expansion Board we connected the front lamps lights to.

 

 

22.) Take a new 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the end port on the 6-Port Expansion Board, then take 2x Adhesive Squares and stick them to the back of the Expansion Board. Stick the expansion board to the inside of the building in the following position against the right wall as shown below. Ensure the 15cm cable we just connected is closest to the back of the house.

 

Pull up the cables from the front lamps to ensure they don’t sag down, then disconnect the dark grey 1×1 brick behind them and lay the cables in between studs before reconnect the brick over the top.

 

Bring the 15cm Connecting Cable over the bricks and toward the bottom of the set, then connect it to a new 6-Port Expansion Board. Take the AA Battery Pack and connect it to another spare port on the expansion board, then turn it ON to test the candle lights are working and flickering OK.

 

 

23.) Group all the components from the flickering lights together and twist and wind them into a neat bunch.

 

Lay the 15cm Connecting Cable that it connected between the flicker effects board and 6-port expansion board in between the following studs, then reconnect the dark brown wall section we removed earlier, over the top.

 

Tuck all the components neatly inside the chimney, then reconnect the brown 1×6 plate to the top of the wall section.

 

Reconnect the following brown plates above the fire place, as well as other sections we removed earlier, surrounding the chimney, then turn the set around to the front and reconnect the LEGO light brick section followed by bricks above.

 

 

24.) We will now install a light in the front kitchen area. Carefully turn the set upside down so we can see underneath this area, then take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing toward you, place the LED (facing up) in the following position. Secure the light in place by connecting a provided Trans Clear Plate w Rounded Bottom 2×2 over the top. The Bit Light should be comfortably sitting in the middle of the trans clear plate.

 

With the set turn back upright, bring the Bit Light cable out and connect it to a spare port on the 6-Port Expansion Board mounted to the wall. Turn the Battery Pack ON to test the light is working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board).
