Repairing damaged wires in Panasonic health & wellness equipment
Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet to completely disconnect electrical power before accessing and repairing wiring.
The first step in this repair is to strip the insulation from the ends of the wire. Always use a wire stripper to strip off the insulation. Using a knife or wire cutter could be unsafe and could also damage the wire strands inside the insulation. Strip 1/4 inch of insulation off the end of the wire.
Place the bare end of the wire into the connector, leaving none exposed. Repeat the process for the other wire end. Squeeze the connector firmly with a crimping tool so the crimp securely grips the wire. Give the wire connector a couple of firm 'tugs" to see that it's connected and tight.
Crimped wire connections that could be exposed to water inside an appliance require a heat shrink tube seal to protect the new connection from moisture. Always remember to put the heat shrink tubes on the wire before you crimp the wire ends together. Cover both ends of the connector with the heat shrink tube to create a good seal. Heat the tube using a heat gun or hair dryer until the tube shrinks up and seals the crimp connector.
Checking continuity through wiring in your Panasonic health & wellness equipment
Always unplug the power cord to completely disconnect electrical power from the equipment before testing wires for continuity in your health & wellness equipment.
To check continuity on a run of wiring, disconnect both ends of the wire.
Set your multimeter to check continuity with a tone.
Put one meter lead on one end of the wire and the other meter lead on the opposite end of the wire.
The meter signals a tone and shows near 0 ohms of resistance if the wire has continuity.
