Incident at Moncton NB


2000-01-26: ARN883 BA46 departing Halifax rejected two take offs 25 minutes apart. No assistance required. First case pilot reported problem with APU. Second event pilot stated that cold temperatures were causing the problems. Nil TSB Update:: APU shutdown automatically due to undetermined fault the first take-off attempt. At the time, the #1 generator was out, so the APU was the alternate - making it required for operation. When the aircraft returned to the gate maintenance control was contacted and authorised a re-start attempt. At the gate it started and ran successfully with NFF. Same automatic shutdown on second attempt. Maintenance was dispatched to Moncton to repair. APU IDG oil was found to be low, just at the threshold for auto shutdown. Oil was topped up, APU was run, and no obvious leaks could be detected. Everything then worked fine (maintenance stayed on-board for the remainder of flight itinerary). While at Halifax overnight, APU IDG was removed and inspected. Carbon seal was found to be weeping oil, new seal installed. Information on file MAH Moncton
