Special Instructions:

1.  Review manufacturer's instructions and the Procedure for
    "Controlling Hazardous Energy Sources."
2.  Deenergize, lockout, and tag electrical circuits.
3.  Comply with the latest provisions of the Clean Air Act and Environmental
    Protection Agency (EPA) regulations as they apply to protection of
    stratospheric ozone.
4.  No intentional venting of refrigerants is permitted.  During the servicing,
    maintenance, and repair of refrigeration equipment, the refrigerant must be
5.  Whenever refrigerant is added or removed from equipment, record the
    quantities on the appropriate forms.
6.  Recover, recycle, or reclaim the refrigerant as appropriate.
7.  If disposal of the equipment item is required, follow regulations concerning
    removal of refrigerants and disposal of the equipment.
8.  If materials containing refrigerants are discarded, comply with EPA
    regulations as applicable.
9.  Refrigerant oils to be removed for disposal must be analyzed for hazardous
    waste and handled accordingly.
10.  Closely follow all safety procedures described in the Material Safety Data
     Sheet (MSDS) for the refrigerant and all labels on refrigerant containers.

Items to Check & Initial Completion:

1. ___  Inspect piping for evidence of leaks and vibration.  If leaks are not
        able to be stopped or corrected, report leak status to supervisor.
2. ___  Inspect all wiring for deterioration, and tighten electrical  contacts.
        Check for corrosion, clean, prime, and paint as necessary.
3. ___  Check mounting bolts and tighten if needed.
4. ___  Check crankcase heater.
5. ___  Check fan for vibration or excessive noise.  Lubricate fan
        and motor if required.
6. ___  Check refrigerant levels, recharge if necessary.  Check for leaks if loss
        of refrigerant is detected, using halide leak detector and soap bubbles.
        If leaks are not able to be stopped or corrected, report leak status to
        supervisor.  Consult the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for disposal
        requirements.  Reclaimed and recycled CFCs are exempt from hazardous
        waste regulations (Consult 40 CFR Part 261).
7. ___  Check temperature drop across condensing coil.
8. ___ Clean air intake and screens; change filters as necessary.
9. ___ Brush or pressure wash coil surfaces.  Straighten fins with
       fin comb.
10.___ Check that reversing valve is energized in the "heat" mode
       and deenergized in the "cool" mode.  Replace defective valves.
11.___ Check all electrical connections and fused disconnect switches.
12.___ Check all controls, indoor and outdoor thermostats, timers, and control
       delays, especially for units with electric supplemental heaters.  Repair
       or replace as necessary.
13.___ Check oil if compressor is equipped with a sight glass.
14.___ Clean up work area.
