VERSAJET Maintaining the Power Console



There are no user serviceable parts within the console, however there are several maintenance items to be observed.


CAUTION - Unplug the unit before starting any maintenance on the console.

The fan slots and slots on the bottom of the console should be kept free from obstructions and periodically be inspected for excessive build-up of dust and/or foreign material. A vacuum cleaner should be used to clean the fan slots of any loose debris. The inside of the console clamp should be inspected periodically for build-up of deposits and/or debris. A damp cloth soaked in mild detergent can be used to remove material. Do not soak the inside of the clamp. Excessive fluid could cause damage. At the end of the console's useful life, dispose of the console according to local regulations.
