Explanation:
Wartung=service, servicing, maintenance, upkeep
grosse=extensive, large-scale, major
kleine=general, insignificant, small-scale, ordinary, simple, minor

The above for "gross" und "klein" are
in my opinion the best to fit "Wartung."

erfolgen=to be made, happens, takes place, occurs;

In the case of "gross" und "klein" I would prob. opt for major and minor.

I hope it helps.
