1996-04-03: On final approach to Miami International Airport, a strong electrical burning smell was noticed in the cockpit and cabins A & B. The crew continued the approach and landed without further incident. The aircraft was stopped on a remote taxiway and the passengers were deplaned via portable stairs and then bused to the terminal. There was no smoke noticed at any time internally or externally. ERS were called out and inspected the aircraft after the passengers had deplaned. There was no evidence of smoke or fire throughout the aircraft. Maintenance found that the forward equipment cooling fan had failed, siezed and that the circuit breakers had popped. The circuit breakers were collared and the fan was placed on deviation (to be replaced on the first available overnight layover). Ops. impact -- unknown. 182 S.O.B.
