    Flap switch problems

    Absolutely gorgeous day here in W.Mass. Perfect day for flying...so,
    of course, I have a squawk on the plane. Sigh!

    Ready to roll out of the slot and I drop the flaps to test them. Down
    they go, flip the tab up...nothing.

    Numerous recycles, check the CB's (OK), recylcled the master, tap the
    dash near the switch, give up and shut down. Then I finished my back
    injury off by crawling under and looking at the wires. Everything
    seems to be in place. I jiggled the flaps, or tried to, they are quite
    firm with little slack.

    Of course on July 3 we won't see a mechanic for a while. Any
    suggestions on quick fixes? This good Wx is killing me!

    Flap switch problems

    Steve -
    Options as I see them:
    (A) With sufficient runway etc, you can fly "no-flap".
    (B) You could jumper the switch terminals to see if the problem is
    with the switch or downstream. Of course, once diagnosed, you'll need
    the mechanic for any parts replacements.
    (C) Enjoy the holiday regardless!

    BTW, pop the cotter pin at the back of each seat track, remove the
    seat, and the floor is nice & flat for bad backs!
