When servicing this product, under no circumstances should the original
design be modified or altered without permission from Zenith Electronics
Corporation. All components should be replaced only with types identical to
those in the original circuit and their physical location, wiring and lead dress
must conform to original layout upon completion of repairs.

1. Be sure that all components are positioned to avoid a possibility of adjacent
component shorts. This is especially important on items trans-ported to and
from the repair shop.
2. Verify that all protective devices such as insulators, barriers, covers, shields,
strain reliefs, power supply cords, and other hardware have been reinstalled
per the original design. Be sure that the safety purpose of the polarized line
plug has not been defeated.
3. Soldering must be inspected to discover possible cold solder joints, solder
splashes, or sharp solder points. Be certain to remove all loose foreign par-
4. Check for physical evidence of damage or deterioration to parts and compo-
nents, for frayed leads or damaged insulation (including the AC cord), and
replace if necessary.
5. No lead or component should touch a high current device or a resistor rated
at 1 watt or more. Lead tension around protruding metal surfaces must be
6. After reassembly of the set, always perform an AC leakage test on all
exposed metallic parts of the cabinet (the channel selector knobs, antenna
terminals, handle and screws) to be sure that set is safe to operate without
danger of electrical shock. DO NOT USE A LINE ISOLATION TRANS-
FORMER DURING THIS TEST. Use an AC voltmeter having 5000 ohms per
volt or more sensitivity in the following manner: Connect a 1500 ohm, 10
watt resistor, paralleled by a .15 mfd 150V AC type capacitor between a
known good earth ground water pipe, conduit, etc.) and the exposed metal-
lic parts, one at a time. Measure the AC voltage across the combination of
1500 ohm resistor and .15 mfd capacitor. Reverse the AC plug by using a
non-polarized adaptor and repeat AC voltage measurements for each
exposed metallic part. Voltage measured must not exceed 0.75 volts RMS.
This corresponds to 0.5 milliamp AC. Any value exceeding this limit consti-
tutes a potential shock hazard and must be corrected immediately.
