Tips to Maintain Your Mova Globe

Your Mova Globe is designed for indoor use. The manufacturer does not recommend placing your Mova globe in any location that receives direct sunlight over an extended period of time. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight will cause your Mova globe’s map to fade over time.

The Mova globe is adequately powered by the normal room light found in most indoor environments. If the ambient light level in your room is too low, your Mova globe may experience difficulties starting up. These symptoms are not a sign of product failure, and are fixed by providing more light.

Even though your globe may have sufficient light, it may still have trouble turning steadily in some locations, where earth’s magnetic field may be slightly distorted. Should the magnetic field be suspect of irregular globe rotation, the manufacturer recommends:

  1. Trying different locations in your room, particularly by a window, but remember not to place your globe in direct sunlight.
  2. Avoid placing your Mova globe near any large metal objects.
  3. Be patient, sometimes it just takes a few minutes for your MOVA globe to get going steadily.
  4. Move the Mova globe to another room or office.

To achieve the best service and longest life from your Mova globe, you should follow these cautions:

  1. Avoid any exposure to high heat. Your Mova globe should not be stored or used outside the range of 40° F to 100° F.
  2. Do not place anything near the north pole of the MOVA globe, such as a mechanical wristwatch, TV screen, or an implanted pacemaker, that can be affected or damaged by a strong magnetic field.
  3. The outer sphere of your MOVA globe is made from carefully selected, high quality acrylic, but it can be scratched by rough handling, or improper cleaning. Take care not to scratch the outer surface by rotating or moving the outer sphere while it is resting on its stand. This is particularly important if you use an alternative stand which is made of something hard like metal. (Improper assembly of the included acrylic stand will increase the potential for scratching. Small superficial scratches can be polished out using slightly abrasive toothpaste and a soft cotton cloth. Apply the toothpaste to the cloth; rub the toothpaste in a circular motion to buff out the scratch. Repeat as necessary to remove the scratch. Rinse with clear water to remove any residual toothpaste. Wipe dry with a clean, dry, soft cotton cloth.)
  4. Make sure that whatever stand you use is stable and can hold your MOVA globe securely without the risk of it rolling off of the stand. It is also advisable to use a stand no higher than 9" to reduce the potential of damaging your MOVA globe’s drive mechanism in the event an accidental fall occurs.

Your Mova globe is covered by a 1 Year, Limited Manufacturer’s Warranty. Complete details of the warranty are included with your Mova globe.
