Self-Test 1 Q&A 5-1

Self-Test Questions Volume 1

What is the primary source of information a technician should turn to before troubleshooting a problem on a piece of equipment? The equipment technical manual.
What is meant by a technician getting a “feel” for the equipment they work on? Being familiar enough with the system to identify when it sounds or behaves in a manner that indicates there is a problem.
List the seven troubleshooting steps. Analyze the symptoms; inspect the equipment; isolate problem to section; isolate problem to component; isolate problem to specific part; repair/replace defective part; verify normal operation.
What can marginal checking indicate? It can indicate how soon a component will need to be replaced.
What are the three types of checks used to isolate a problem in a system? Marginal - Varying operating conditions from their normal values to detect faults. System - Performed using a defined sequence of steps or test program to troubleshoot. Diagnostic - internal programs that monitor a system’s states of health.
Which troubleshooting method involves trying alternate routes when progress is blocked and workarounds are put in place to facilitate long-term repairs? The detouring method.
As a technician, what should you do if all of your troubleshooting attempts have failed and too many variables have been inserted into the problem during the troubleshooting process? Use the “take it from the top” method.
