- Determine the nature and extent of repairs required by troubleshooting equipment for malfunctions, requiring the tracing of wiring, replacing broken or worn parts, detecting leaks, feedback, and interference. Determine voltage tolerances, amperage, power supplies, wave shape, frequency resonance, deflection time, decay curve, gain, balance, and signal sensitivity and comparing against prescribed tolerances and specifications. The incumbent plans and carries out work assignments using blueprints, schematic drawings, technical manuals, wiring diagrams, liquid/air flow sheets, and other specifications.
- Test equipment after repair and also tests new equipment to assure proper functioning; conducts preventive maintenance inspection of equipment; performs periodic checks to ensure that equipment users are following proper preventive maintenance procedures; and conducts on-the-job training for all equipment users and biomedical repair technicians in the maintenance of medical, laboratory, and dental equipment.
- Will be assigned work either orally or through work orders. Incumbent independently determines the nature of trouble and extent of repairs required and completes repairs following established trade practices and procedures, using technical manuals, blueprints, sketches, wiring diagrams, liquid and air flow sheets, and other specifications. The incumbent performs operational and safety tests after repairs have been completed or when new equipment is received to assure that equipment is operating within prescribed limits so that lives are not endangered. The supervisor provides limited oversight and spot checks work for compliance with acceptable trade practices, directives, and operating specifications.
