The table lists the common malfunctions, which you may find during the operation or maintenance of the
M172/M172A1 Telescope and Quadrant Mount. You should perform the tests/inspections and corrective
actions in the order listed.
b. This manual cannot list all malfunctions that may occur, or all tests or inspections and corrective
actions. If a malfunction is not listed or is not corrected by listed corrective actions, notify your supervisor.
c. Each work package is headed by an initial setup. This setup outlines what is needed as well as
certain conditions, which must be met before starting the task. DON'T START A TASK UNTIL:
You understand the task;

a. The malfunction/symptom index is a quick reference index for finding troubleshooting procedures.
Associated with each symptom name is a work package sequence number representing the starting point in
the troubleshooting sequence. Should any one symptom require more than one troubleshooting sequence to
arrive at the most likely area of investigation, the additional starting point numbers are presented.
b. As the troubleshooting activity progresses to the conclusion of a particular sequence, a reference is
made to the next logical troubleshooting sequence by work package sequence number or by referring to the
malfunction/symptom index to locate the next failure symptom work package. This type of activity
continues until successful fault isolation is achieved.
