The most common cause for control failure
is corrosion on connectors. Therefore, dis-
connecting and reconnecting wires will be
necessary throughout test procedures.
All tests/checks should be made with a VOM
or DVM having a sensitivity of 20,000 ohms-
per-volt DC, or greater.
Disconnect power before servicing.
Replace all parts and panels before operating.
Failure to do so can result in death or electrical shock.
