Easyjet A320 near Athens on Jan 20th 2017, electrical burning odour in cockpit
Last Update: August 10, 2017 / 16:03:59 GMT/Zulu time
The United Kingdom's AAIB released their bulletin reporting that an avionics cooling extractor fan had seized as result of ceramic bearing failure. The component was replaced and the aircraft returned to service.
The AAIB reported the extractor fan had accumulated 25,181 hours since new and 14,181 flight cycles since new, while the paired blower fan had been replaced in 2016. Due to the change of the blower fan the fan pair was not assigned priority to, therefore the extractor fan remained in service despite its high service time.
