equipment and its related components while it is actually being operated. Pay attention to WARNINGs,
CAUTIONs and NOTEs.
d. Do your AFIER (A) PMCS right after operating your equipment. Pay attention to WARNINGs, CAUTlONs and

g. When a check and service procedure is required for both WEEKLY and BEFORE intervals, it is not necessary to
do the procedure twice if the equipment is operated during the weekly period.
