MEDFORD, Ore. — Travelers can expect delays on Wednesday morning due to an x-ray machine that will be out of service at Rogue Valley International Airport, according to the Jackson County Airport Authority (JCAA).

Update 8:15 a.m.

TSA agents at Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport are waiting for a part to arrive in order to fix a broken x-ray machine. Agents say the part was overnighted after a technician found the machine was broken. TSA hopes to have the problem fixed before 9 a.m.

Having one x-ray machine down will close a checkpoint during the "peak screening times" between 3:15 a.m. and 7 a.m. JCAA recommends that travelers arrive at the airport at least two hours before their boarding time.

That machine is expected to be back in service by the end of the day.

Security will be checking travelers beginning at 3:15 a.m. in order to get an early start.

Staff from the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) are asking travelers to remove any electronics larger than a cell phone from their carry-on bags and place them in a bin with nothing on top or below them. This step helps TSA officers get clearer x-ray images by "uncluttering" carry-on bags, JCAA said.

TSA also recommends all of the following to expedite the screening process:

 - Arrive at the airport two hours prior to boarding.
 - Have boarding pass and ID ready.
 - Pack carry-on bags with quick and easy access to all large electronics and quart-size bags of any liquids, gels or aerosols.
 - Do not overstuff carry-on bags. "An uncluttered bag simplifies the screening process for passengers and TSA officers." Check bags when possible.
 - Once screening is complete, be sure to double-check the bins to make sure nothing is left behind.
