Remove failed power canister

You remove a failed power canister so you can replace it with a new one. When you remove a power canister, you turn off power, disconnect the power cord, and slide the component out of the shelf.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. Put on antistatic protection.
  2. Unpack the new power canister, and set it on a level surface near the shelf.
    Save all packing materials for use when returning the failed power canister.
  3. Turn off the power switch on the power canister that you need to remove.
  4. Open the power cord retainer of the power canister that you need to remove, and then unplug the power cord from the power canister.
  5. Press the orange latch on the power canister cam handle, and then open the cam handle to fully release the power canister from the mid plane.
  6. Use the cam handle to slide the power canister out of the shelf.
    Attention: When removing a power canister, always use two hands to support its weight.
