a. Test the operation of the ventilating motor by installing the fan and connecting the motor to an AC ammeter in
series with a 120 VAC, 50 or 60 Hz, single phase source.
b. With the motor operating under the fan load, current draw shall not exceed 3.4 amperes. Use a tachometer to
check motor speed. It must be approximately 1,425 rpm when operating at 50 Hz and 1,725 rpm when operating at 60
c. Replace the motor if the current draw is too high or the speed is too low. No repair is authorized.

b. Cleaning and Inspection.
Clean parts in a well-ventilated area. Avoid inhalation of solvent fumes and
prolonged exposure of skin to cleaning solvent. Wash exposed skin thoroughly.
Dry cleaning solvent (fed. spec. P-D-680) used to clean parts is potentially
dangerous to personnel and property. Do not use near open flame or excessive
heat. Flash point of solvent is 100° F (38° C).
