5.3 SAMPLE REPAIR RECORD SHEET
A repair record sheet is shown on the next page. It can be copied and used directly,
or it can be retyped with modifications for particular systems.
This version has a space to describe troubleshooting activities, as well as for repair
activities. If a problem reoccurs, or a new one emerges, knowing what was
suspicious or repaired in the past can be very helpful.
After the sheet has been filled out, file it with all the other system sheets or
checklists, or with the operation and maintenance manual for that system.
