4-6.1 Cleaning and inspection
Wipe clean exterior of main processor with clean rag. Open door and vacuum clean or clean inside with
electrician's brush. Avoid using unauthorized solvents for cleaning inside of main processor. Solvents leave a
greasy film on components that may reduce electrical conductivity.
Visually inspect for indications of burns, corrosion, loose connections, damaged parts, or chipped paint. Clean
corrosion from contacts and terminals, tighten loose connections, and replace damaged parts. Remove
corrosion with silver polish, fine sandpaper, or burnishing tool. Do not use emery paper or emery cloth or steel
wool. Vacuum to remove residue. Touch up paint according to TB 43-144. Do not paint threads or labels.
