Incident at GRANDE PRAIRIE AB (CYQU)

UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the original gear extension failure was caused by the housing failure of the 60 amp C/B P/N MS25361-60 for the Hydraulic Power Pack motor. The C/B cracked at the terminal stud causing the internal contact to shift and provide a poor internal connection. Company maintenance replaced the C/B and completed gear swings in the hangar with no faults found.
The crew of C-GHUN, a Beech King Air 90, was unable to lower the gear on final approach at Grande Prairie and did a missed approach. They held to the north of the airport until the gear was lowered manually. The a/c landed at 2059z.
UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the aircraft was moved from Grande Prairie to their facility in Lethbridge by flight permit according to their maintenance department. The cause of the gear problem is still under investigation. They have confirmed the breaker was open for the power pack. They will submit an SDR as soon as they finish their maintenance/ investigation with respect to this issue. They had a similar issue 8 flights ago and had maintenance performed in the U.S. at that time.
