Drycleaning solvent PD-680 is both toxic and flammable. Wear safety goggles and gloves and use in a
well-ventilated area. Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors and avoid skin contact. Do not use near open
flame or excessive heat. Flash point of solvent is 100°F to 138°F (38°C to 59°C) if you become dizzy

find one loose, tighten it or report it to unit maintenance.
Welds. Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together. If a broken weld
is found, report it to higher level of maintenance.
Electrical wires, connectors, terminals and receptacles. Look for cracked or broken insulation, bare
wires, and loose or broken connectors. Tighten loose connectors and make sure the wires are in good

spots and stains around a fitting or connector can mean a leak. If a leak comes from a loose connector,
tighten it. If something is broken or worn out, report it to unit maintenance.
