The GE Power Connection Board 531X123PCHACG2 is a renewal part for multiple original equipment power connection boards. When you replace a defective board with the GE Power Connection Board 531X123PCHACG2, there are guidelines you must follow to ensure that static buildup does not occur. Static can harm the components on a printed circuit board. When you receive the board from the factory it comes in a container that protects the device from rough treatment that might occur during shipment.
Look for evidence that the device received damage during shipment. Inspect the box for dents, rips, and signs that liquids were spilled or dripped on the box. The box has a label attached that describes the model number and other identifying information and make sure it matches the model you ordered. Write down the model number, serial number, catalog number and other information and keep the information in a safe place for future use. If you need to call for service, provide the information to customer service to ensure you receive accurate and fast assistance.
Cut through the tamper proof tape that serves to protect the board and open the box. Collect the written materials supplied with the board. You might find warranty information, installation manuals, customer support information, and other valuable documentation. Put the written material in a safe place.
Notice that the board is wrapped in a static protecting bag and it is best practice to keep it in the bag. However, with the board still in the bag locate the model number on the board and verify that it matches the model you ordered.
