There are some common items to check on the MKT and associated equipment. These include the
Dirt, grease, oil, and debris only get in the way and may cover up a serious problem. Clean as you
work and as needed. Use degreasing solvent (MIL-PRF-680) on all metal surfaces. Use soap and
water when you clean rubber or plastic material.
Check kitchen body and frame for rust and corrosion. If any bare metal or corrosion
exists, clean, and apply a thin coat of oil. Report it to your supervisor.
Bolts, Nuts, and Screws. Check them all for obvious looseness, missing, bent, or broken
condition.You can't try them all with a tool, but look for chipped paint, bare metal, or rust around bolt
heads. If you find a bolt, nut, or screw you think is loose, tighten it or report it to your supervisor.
Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together. If you find a bad weld,
report it to your supervisor.
Look for cracked, frayed, or broken insulation, bare wires, and loose or broken connectors. Tighten
loose connectors. Report any damaged wires to your supervisor. When you check for "operating
condition", you look at the component to see if it's serviceable.
DO NOT use diesel fuel, gasoline, or benzene (benzol) for cleaning.
DO NOT SMOKE when using cleaning solvent. NEVER USE IT NEAR
AN OPEN FLAME. Be sure there is a fire extinguisher nearby and use
cleaning solvent only in well- ventilated places. Flash point of solvent is
138 F (60 C).
