CAUTION
Changing of the semiconductors by the customer’s personnel should be carried out in
exceptional cases only. There is a liklihood that the semiconductors will be subjected to
impermissible stressing on reassembly.
The fuse elements of the new semiconductor module should be inserted in the correct
sequence!
All the fuse elements which were previously removed should be reinstalled.
1. Remove the Makrolon cover plate.
2. Locate the defective semiconductor plug-in unit by means of measurement.
As a general rule defective semiconductors lose their reverse d.c. blocking capability in one or both
directions as a result of exceedure of a limit value. Loss of the reverse d.c. blocking capability can be
determined by performance of a simple continuity check using a d.c. ohmmeter or a similar instrument at the
heatsink halves. The measuring instrument must operate at a voltage >> 2 V. Low ohmic values are
measured in the breakdown condition.
Failure of a snubber circuit is another possible cause of breakdown. For this reason the snubber circuit
should always be checked (both the resistance and the capacitance value should be measured).
3. If the defective plug-in unit is located behind the module -A14 or -A15, this module including its mounting
plate should first be removed. In this case the control leads should be marked and removed (refer also to
Fig. 7.5).
Otherwise the control leads (coming from module -A15) of the defective plug-in unit should be marked and
removed at the male plug contact (14).
4. The three connection screws of the plug-in unit (above, centre, below) should be removed and the module
should be half withdrawn. The centre of the module should then be supported by hand from below and fully
extracted (it weighs approx. 27 kg).
5. Installation
Insert the module in the tier assembly (mind the CU busbars) and push it into place. The remainder of
installation should be carried out in the reverse order to that employed for disassembly.

1. Remove the plug-in unit in accordance with 7.2.4 .
2. Mark the lead(s) at the RC snubber circuit of the defective semiconductor and remove them.
3. Lay the semiconductor plug-in unit on the heatsink halves (9) and alternately loosen the tension screws (3)
of the defective semiconductor but do not remove them entirely.
4. Rotate the semiconductor plug-in unit on the heatsink (6).
Pull the semiconductor plug-in unit out so that it projects over the edge of the table, remove the tension nuts
(3), washers (2), leaf springs (4) and ball (5) from below and push the plug-in unit back again on to the table.
Carefully remove the heatsink half (9).
Mark the position of the plastic parts (11 and 12 or 13).
Remove the grid and auxiliary cathode conductor from the defective thyristor (unnecessary in the case of a
diode) and remove the semiconductor.

CAUTION
Before installation of the new semiconductor particular care should be taken to ensure
that the contact surfaces of the heatsinks and of the semiconductor have been
thoroughly cleaned and that they are not damaged mechanically.
Both the centering pins (8) should be left in the heatsinks.
A thin film of Cramolin B spray should be applied to the contact surfaces of the
heatsinks and of the semiconductors.
5. Insert the new semiconductor and attach the grid and auxiliary cathode conductors; attach the heatsinks with
care. Simultaneously insert the plastic parts (11 and 12 or 13).
Ensure that the mounting position of the new semiconductor is correct. The mounting position of the semiconductor is dependent on the mounting position of the plug-in unit (refer to Fig. 7.5 or to the nameplate (17)
of the module).
6. Pull the modules out over the edge of the table so that the leaf springs (4) for the new semiconductor can be
inserted from below with the curved section over the balls (5). Grease the thread and tighten the tension nuts
by hand.

CAUTION
Ensure that the insulation screws are seated correctly.

7. Rotate the module on the heatsink (9).
Tighten the tension nuts alternately until the leaf springs have been bent straight.
Check linearity of the leaf springs by means of a straight edge.
Reconnect the leads of the RC snubber circuit.
8. For installation of a plug-in unit please refer to 7.2.4 (5 -> 1).
