Section II. OPERATOR PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
CHECKS AND SERVICES
The preventive maintenance checks and services (PMCS) are performed daily. This makes sure that defects are
discovered and corrected before they cause serious damage. The proper checks and services are listed in Table 2-1.
The preventive maintenance table is divided into three intervals of maintenance.
a. Before Operation (B). These checks should be limited to those required for consecutive application by an
assigned operator/crew. A statement as follows will be included in the heading of all PMCS tables to obtain increased
inspections when items are first assigned to an operator/crew or operation is resumed after a period of nonuse:
(1) You are the assigned operator and have not operated the item since the last weekly check.
(2) You are operating the item for the first time.
b. During Operation (D). These are checks and services needed to be performed while the engine is running.
Make sure to keep all Warnings and Cautions in mind while performing the checks and services.
c. After Operation (A). These are checks and services performed after shutting down the aerosol generator. They
make sure that the machine will be ready for operation the next time it is used.
If the aerosol generator fails to operate properly, turn to the troubleshooting sections. Use TM 38-750 to report any
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICE
Table 2-1 lists all the preventive maintenance procedures that the operator must perform. Columns indicate the interval,
the items to be inspected, and procedures to be used by the operator. An equipment readiness column will indicate when
the aerosol generator is not ready for operation.
