A. Fault isolation table
The amber failure LED is for control pendant type 76812. If the amber failure LED is
unlighted then read the failure code on the failure codes list in Para 3.B.
For trouble shouting it is proper, when possible, to interchange each item in turn by
another one that is is effective.
