A -self-maintenance- (SM) machine has been developed and validated. It is so promising, since it reduces the probability of serious damages from malfunction and automates maintenance processes. It has been even commercialized in real market of photo copiers, but the implementation was specifically designed for a photo copier. Thus, a generic functionality of SM that can be additionally put on various kinds of machines would be highly demanded. This paper proposes such generic module for SM. This is structured in a form of -cellular machine-, which consists of homogeneous -cells-, so that it can adapt to the target machine to be maintained and it is highly fault-tolerant itself. This can be designed independently of a target machine. The paper presents a fundamental way to structure and design those modules and the module-s algorithm of fault diagnosis. Those are verified in a design support system and fault simulation system on computer program.
