Safety Action


As a result of this incident and chafing found on the galley connectors of another B737 aircraft, the operator issued Engineering Release E/R B73-24-00-22 on 30 September 1999. This required the operator to inspect all B737 aircraft for chafed or burnt wiring on the galley power connectors and to reinstall insulation tape if required. The inspection showed that four other aircraft needed to have the galley connector wiring insulation retaped with none exhibiting any chafed or burnt wiring damage.
