How To Test And Troubleshoot Your GE Fanuc IC697PWR710

Hello and welcome to

Today, we're going to be testing a 9070 Power Supply. I have here an IC697PWR710 and this is a very simple test. Before we get started I want you to know that we always make sure that we have a CPU in the rack so that we're sure that the power supply is able to power the rack. If we can't get power through the back to the other slots, then even if the power supply turns on, we still have a problem.

So, I have here an IC697CPX935, for arguments sake, and IC697CHS750 five slot rack, which is empty otherwise. So, what I'm going to do is take a typical power cord, it's just a standard 120V plug-in power cord, and I want to show you guys my connections if I can get that in front of you there. The black wire is black or hot load one. Load two or neutral, that's the white wire and I have the jumper in place. Okay, so what I'm going to do here is place it in the rack. Plug the power supply into my power strip. So, the first LED I'm looking for to be green of course is the power supply itself and then power is able to go to the CPX. so I know that I'm able to get power from the power supply to the rack. Make sure that you always have a CPU in there or some kind of a processor. Another thing is, if you do turn the power supply on and you don't get an LED on, you don't get any power. You know that it's not working, the first thing that you want to check is the fuse. This is not always the problem but occasionally it is.

If it's still not working, this is something that we do repair. We offer an exchange program, new product, re-manufactured and same day shipping. So if that's something that interests you, please see us at

Thank You.
