Units, when you turn in your AS/ASM-146, 147, 189 and 190 electronic shop vans (ESVs) for overhaul, make sure that the space heater, NSN 4520-00-177-6198, is included with each ESV. 

CECOM wants you to be aware that if an ESV entering overhaul at Tobyhanna Army Depot (TYAD), PA, is received without a heater, TYAD will not replace the heater. In such cases, units will need to requisition replacement heaters from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) after receiving the ESV from the completed depot overhaul program. 

However, if an ESV is turned in with a broken heater, TYAD will replace it as part of the overhaul.
