Affected

All Model 330 MicroTurbine systems shipped between April 1999 and June 2001 that use the TET Thermocouple 508625-100 for replacement. The thermocouple Part Number is identified on the label attached to the thermocouple cable.

Summary

On a number of TET Thermocouples 508625-100 shipped for standard maintenance, the -inch nut on the thermocouple is not placed at the proper position. This will result in incorrect positioning of the sensor inside the engine, leading to frequent occurrence of Fault Codes 6009 (Overtemperature), 6010 (High Overtemperature), and 6012 (Engine Flameout). Any of these conditions may potentially lead to engine overtemperature damage or flame instability. To eliminate these problems, it is imperative to set the -inch nut on the thermocouple at approximately 140 mm (5 inches) from the tip of the thermocouple.

Action Required

If the MicroTurbine experiences the above-mentioned conditions after replacing the TET Thermocouple 508625-100, refer to Work Instructions 513576 for proper thermocouple adjustment procedures.

Also, if you are replacing the TET Thermocouple 508625-100, refer to Work Instructions 513576 for proper thermocouple replacement procedures.

NOTE

On currently shipped TET Thermocouples 508625-100, the locking ferrule for the -inch nut is pre-swaged onto the thermocouple, allowing the sensor to be positioned correctly inside the engine.
