   - Turn up the **ionizer** heater. ​  The ionizer operates at 21-22 amps.  Keep in mind that the current will fall slightly as the ionizer gets warmer. ​ Keep adjusting the current until the ionizer is stable at 21-22 A. It should take about 1 minute to reach 21 A from the standby value of 10 A.   - Turn up the **ionizer** heater. ​  The ionizer operates at 21-22 amps.  Keep in mind that the current will fall slightly as the ionizer gets warmer. ​ Keep adjusting the current until the ionizer is stable at 21-22 A.

   - Turn up the Cesium **feed tube** heater to 0.450 amperes.  ​   - Turn up the Cesium **feed tube** heater to 0.450 amperes.  ​
-  - Set the cesium **reservoir** heater current to 0.400 Amps. This is an approximate value above the needed power level.  ​You may use the digital or analog meter to set this value.+  - Set the cesium **reservoir** heater current to **0.315** Amps. This is an approximate value above the needed power level.  ​
   - Set the Glassman **extractor** power supply to 12.5 KV. Check to be sure the current is less than about 5 milliamps and the "​control milliamperes"​ light is NOT lit. High current indicates that the source needs to be serviced.   - Set the Glassman **extractor** power supply to 12.5 KV.

   - Set the Glassman **target** power supply to 6.5 kV. Check to be sure the current is less than about 5 milliamps and the "​control milliamperes"​ light is NOT lit. High current indicates that the source needs to be serviced. ​ A newly installed pellet may cause instability for the first hour or so, but will become stable.   - Set the Glassman **target** power supply to 6.5 kV.

-  - **Cesium reservoir**:​ The reservoir has a temperature controller that turns the power on/off as needed for a constant temperature. ​ The controller is located next to the analog temperature meter on the source power platform. ​ The red numbers are the measured temperature,​ the green numbers are the set point temperature,​ there is a small red light that indicates when the controller is calling for power. ​ The reservoir current switches between 0 and .400A as directed by the controller. +  - **Cesium reservoir**:​ The reservoir has a temperature controller that turns the power on/off as needed for a constant temperature. ​ The controller is located next to the analog temperature meter on the source power platform. ​ The red numbers are the measured temperature,​ the green numbers are the set point temperature,​ there is a small red light that indicates when the controller is calling for power. ​ The reservoir current switches between 0.150A and .315A as directed by the controller. 
-  - Wait until the reservoir controller'​s red power light is on and you can see about .400A reservoir current on one of the meters, run the reservoir current ​to zero on either ​the digital ​or analog meters.  Make sure that you see controller red light on with zero amps of current.+  - Wait until the reservoir controller'​s red power light is on and you can see about .315A reservoir current on the meter, run the reservoir current ​down on the digital ​meter.  Make sure that you see controller red light on with minimal ​amps of current.
   - Wait for the reservoir temperature (red numbers on controller) to drop below** 85**° C.  ​   - Wait for the reservoir temperature (red numbers on controller) to drop below** 85**° C.  ​
   - Turn down the feed tube power supply.   - Turn down the feed tube power supply.
