AD: McDonnell Douglas

A D NUMBER: 2004-22-17
MANUFACTURER:
McDonnell Douglas
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2004-22-17
SUMMARY: This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD), applicable to certain McDonnell Douglas Model MD-11 and MD-11F airplanes, that requires an inspection of the connector cables for signs of arcing and/or signs of moisture penetration into the overhead decoder units (ODU),and replacement of the affected ODU(s) with a new ODU, if necessary. This action also requires modification and reidentification of the cable assemblies and the connect cable assemblies at shipside power to the ODU, ODU to ODU, and adjacent bag racks; and replacing certain connectors of the ODU and shipside power cable assemblies. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent moisture from entering through the rear of the connector of the ODUs located in the overhead baggage stowage racks, which could result in a short, damage to the connector pins, and consequent smoke and/or fire in the cabin. This action is intended to address the identified unsafe condition.
