Safety inspection checklist
Use the information in this section to identify potentially unsafe conditions with your server. As each machine was designed and built, required safety items were installed to protect users and service technicians from injury.
Make sure that the power is off and the power cord is disconnected.
Check the power cord.
Make sure that the third-wire ground connector is in good condition. Use a meter to measure third-wire ground continuity for 0.1 ohm or less between the external ground pin and the frame ground.
Make sure that the power cord is the correct type.To view the power cords that are available for the server:
In the Customize a Model pane:
Click Select Options/Parts for a Model.
Enter the machine type and model for your server.
Click the Power tab to see all line cords.
Make sure that the insulation is not frayed or worn.
Check for any obvious non-Lenovo alterations. Use good judgment as to the safety of any non-Lenovo alterations.
Check inside the server for any obvious unsafe conditions, such as metal filings, contamination, water or other liquid, or signs of fire or smoke damage.
Check for worn, frayed, or pinched cables.
Make sure that the power-supply cover fasteners (screws or rivets) have not been removed or tampered with.
