“The software is working out great. It’s worth making sure that our new maintenance people go through the programs and now it’s going to be a mandatory part of their training. I’ve seen the difference in the few people I’ve run through. The more practice I can get these new troubleshooters the better.”

Step 1

Observe Behavior

Gather information, use your senses and list observations.

Step 2

Define Problem Area

Eliminate areas of the circuit that are working properly.

Step 3

Identify Possible Causes

Include every component in the problem area when identifying all possible causes of the malfunction.

Step 4


Perform tests to positively identify faulty component.

Step 5

Repair and Confirm

Replace faulty component and check all features to ensure all faults have been repaired.
