EQUIPMENT  Infant  Incubator  Preventative  Maintenance    Preventive  Maintenance  Checklist    1. Clean  humidification  chamber.  2. Check  seals  around  doors  and  ports.  3. Lubricate  fan  and  tighten  bolts  to  prevent  noise.  4. Clean  or  replace  bacterial  filter  on  air  intake  (needed  more  frequently  in  dusty  environments).  5. Clean  incubator  (use  warm  water,  detergent,  and  antiseptic  only).  6. Insure  doors  and  ports  stay  shut  when  latched.  7. Check  electrical  plug.  8. Check  that  cradle  tilt  is  working  and  adjustable.  9. Drain  and  dry  tray.  Refill  with  sterile  water  immediately  before  use.  Change  water  daily.  10.

Check  leakage  current  (<300  microamps).  14. Check  ground  resistance  (<0.5  ohms).  15. Search  for  air  leaks  on  case,  especially  at  junctions  or  joints  of  different  plates  or  pieces  (using  detergent  and  toothbrush  while  unit  is  sealed  can  reveal  leaks).  16.
