Maintenance is the process by which a robot continues to function as intended. Many times in fembot fiction or film this trope will be used to reveal a character as an android. This process can consist of something as mundane as a simple software patch or update, to fully disassembling the robot and replacing parts.
Often times the maintenance will be in response to a small malfunction or minor damage. However, sometimes maintenance will be started simply to keep an android "up to date." The physical aspects of maintenance, such as opening a panel to access a data port, removing a body part, or any kind of disassembly can be done either by a human, another android, or character themselves. Many times if a robot is performing maintenance on themselves they will require some small assistance from a computer terminal or automated system.
