Section V. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES
The PMCS chart in this section contains all necessary Unit preventive main-
tenance checks and services for this equipment.
4-10. General. The trailer assemblies and generator sets must be inspected and serviced systematically
to insure that the power plant is ready for operation at all times. Inspection will allow defects to be dis-
covered and corrected before they result in serious damage or failure. Table 4-1 contains a tabulated list
of preventive maintenance checks and services to be performed by unit maintenance personnel. All of the
unit PMCS on the trailers is scheduled to be performed semiannually. Unit PMCS on the generator sets
is scheduled weekly or on a per-hours-of-operation basis. The running time meters on the control panels
are used to determine the operating time of the generator sets.
Using the following as a guide, do the
checks and services at the intervals shown. Observe all CAUTIONS and WARNINGS.
For PMCS performed on an operating time basis, perform your hourly (H) PMCS as close as possible
to the time intervals indicated.
For units in continuous operation, perform PMCS before starting operation
if continuous operation will extend service interval past that which is shown.
Perform your weekly (W) PMCS every week or 40 hours of generator set operating time.
Perform your monthly (M) PMCS every month or 100 hours of generator set operating time.
Do your semiannual (S) PMCS once every six months.
Do your annual (A) PMCS once every year.
If vou discover a problem with the equipment, refer to Section Vl, Troubleshooting. If you cannot
correct the problem, refer to paragraph 4-12, Reporting Deficiencies.
