Found out from electrical officer that the system was unable to run full capacity.

Test the signal from the main panel – found signal in working condition, but the valve was not open/close accordingly.

Found that the blower outlet valve actuator air leakage, causing the valve to malfunction.

Dismantle the blower outlet valve actuator, found it was previously repaired by other party but was not installed back properly, as shaft clip of the actuator was not in place, and one of the actuator bottom O-ring was missing.

The actuator repair kit spare which the vessel has was wrong size, so we will get the correct size to overhaul the actuator.

However, there was insufficient instrument air and sea water pump was also unable to run, so we were unable to test the system and will come back to test the system once everything is back in order.
