AD NUMBER: 2007-12-12
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2007-12-12
SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive
(AD) for the products listed above.
This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness
information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another
country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation
The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: * * * discovery of
interferences between the power wire supplying the galley's
coffee-maker and the surrounding structure.
These interferences might, by chafing and degrading the wire
insulation, generate short circuits between the wire and the
aircraft ground through the composite cabinet structure, without
activation of the Circuit Breaker(C/B). Several hot spots may then
be created and generate a large amount of thick smokes just behind
We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe
condition on these products.
