2005-05-05: TSB Update A05A0052: While on short final for Runway 24 at CYHZ, the crew of JZA8747 (C-GANQ) were unable to control the air conditioning system either in manual or in automatic mode, and noticed the cabin duct temperature climbing past 40 degrees c. The flight attendant also reported a hot smell in the cabin (like a burnt match), and that the ceiling in the cabin was warm. Engine bleeds were turned off, and the crew requested ERS for landing. The smell seemed to dissipate, and the aircraft landed without incident at 1615 ADT. The aircraft was taxied in, with ERS attending, and passengeres were disembarked normally. Maintenance replaced a faulty pressure control computer. The faulty computer was demanding maximum pressure, causing the air conditioning machine to overheat.
