CAUSE Irregular air control at BOV. Several burnt thermocouples or corroded trim probes lead. Clean connection. no further action required. CAUSE Open bleed valve or late closure of BOV. Corroded trim resistor connection. Trouble Shooting Quick Reference COMPRESSOR SYMPTOM Hooting Sound. verify trim stick by comparing log book trim value to that on stick. Replace support and adapter assy. CAUSE Loose trim stick terminals. Clean the C-D orifice Switch bleed valve. Shaft Replace T/M sealing ring. Growling sound and possibly vibration. hung start. High T5 Low T5 T5 Difference between both engine. T5 SYSTEM SYMPTOM Erratic T5 reading. FIX Clean mettering orifice. Replace trim stick Replace thermocouples Check T5 gauges* by switching from side-to-side. Engine with different temperature profiles. Hot start. change diaphragm. #1 bearing support and adapter out of round. Surging Compressor . TORQUE SYSTEM SYMPTOM High torque reading T/M reading levels off but actual torque still increasing Dropping torque pressure CAUSE Stuck T/M control valve (return spring or sleeve valve) Leakage from the aft sealing ring Worn T/M Seal FIX Apply Nitrogen to T/M oil pressure port to engine & rock prop. Replace pressure regulating valve or replace T/M valve Fluctuating T/M pressure © Dade Sobarna Fluctuating oil pressure or undersize T/M valve . or switch bleed valve. If OK. FIX Switch bleed valve or swap to other side. Thermocouples lockwired to Remove lockwire and correct. Check for potential overtorque. Rumbling Compressor. Switch bleed valve BOV on wrong side of engine. Increase oil pressure (within limits). No reading after repair. ground.1. BLEED VALVE SYMPTOM Very high T5. Bleed Valve closing early. choking/stall. FIX Repair terminal block. Swap BOV to other side. Fluttering bleed valve. replace seal. If pressure continues to drop.

High oil temperature Oil pressure increase with Ng speed. or scored pressure relief valve. Oil leaking out of bleed valve. Low oil pressure.SECONDARY AIR SYSTEM & BREATHER SYMPTOM Oil in compressor (or at bleed valve) Oil smell in the cabin CAUSE FIX Replace labyrinth seal Replace labyrinth seal Replace labyrinth seal Replace labyrinth seal. Excessive oil crossing the #1 labyrinth seal. Oversized #1 bearing labyrinth seal Oversized #2 bearing rear labyrinth seal Smoke at start up and/or Oversized #2 bearing front shutdown. Static leak from oil tank. CAUSE Check valve stuck open. Diverter valve not diverting oil to oil cooler Cracked main oil pressure pump housing. Fluctuating oil pressure. labyrinth seal. 24 psi decrease in oil pressure. Check diverter valve operation. If oil not present. Oil leaking from oil-to-fuel heater. or the pressure pump drive shaft diaphragm seal. OIL SYSTEM SYMPTOM Oil leaking at compressor inlet or #1 bearing. Remove and replace the check valve. Increase in oil temperature. High oil consumption. Blocked oil filter. Remove and repair gas gen section. Check O-ring on oil filter housing. If oil present. Check the oil filter element. High tank air pressure differential. Replace starter-generator carbon seal Check for proper operation of the tank pressurizing valve. and pressure relief valve. Let sit for 10 minutes. Oil mist in overboard Broken carbon seal breathing. check and replace the filter housing O-ring. check valve. Erratic oil pressure at altitude. Excessive oil crossing the #2 rear labyrinth seal. Change O-ring on oil filter housing. Check tank pressurizing valve. Replace oil-to-fuel heater. the center tube O-ring. © Dade Sobarna . Remove and repair gas gen section. High fluctuation of oil pressure at high altitude. Stuck check valve causing bypassing of oil past the relief valve. Clogged or damage oil filter element. Oil smell in the cabin and oily diffuser pipes. Oil smell in the cabin. FIX Remove the housing and clean. Burnt oil on turbine labyrinth seal Black exhaust smoke during Oversized #3 bearing operation. repair or replace check valve. Oil filter is bypass due to backwards oil filter. Install oil filter correctly. Change O-ring on oil filter housing. Low static pressure in oil tank. Replace main oil pressure pump. Clean or replace oil filter. mixing with fuel and burning. broken check valve spring.
