To assure a quality repair, there specific tests (such as neutral-setting and interpole-armature polarity) that should routinely be performed on every DC machine. When done correctly, the simple procedures presented will prevent scenarios such as that late night phone call from an irate customer whose DC machine is "arcing like a fireworks show."

Technicians with at least a moderate lever of experience in DC machine repair will benefit from this session.
