For those with electric flaps on a F model, could use some troubleshooting help. My 75 F has the slider flaps lever. It has detects for the 15° and 33° positions. This morning while doing the pre-flight, I extend the flaps and when I went to retract them, they stayed down. I slid the lever up and down a few times and they finally retracted. I was not able to reproduce the problem. When I went to takeoff, I extended the flaps and they went down to the correct position. I tried to retract them and they stayed down, I moved the lever to full flaps and they moved down to 33° but wouldn't retract. Back at the hangar, I slid the flap lever back and forth a few times and nothing happened. I shut down and pulled all the breakers except the flap's breaker. I left the flap lever in the up position and pulled the breaker and cycled it a few times. I could hear a relay click near where the flap motor should be. On one of the cycles of the breaker, the flaps retracted. Anyone know how the flap motor works on my model? Anyone ever had to have a flap motor rebuild or replaced? If so, where/who did the work? Thanks for any help!
So I have determined that our 1967 M20F had the electric flaps (Mooney kit 94001-503) installed in 1998. The only paperwork I have is a log book entry stating it was IAW the Mooney drawing. The FAA has no 337 on it and I can find no STC pwperwork. Does anyone know if this installation required an STC or a form 337? Does anyone have this kit and have any paperwork on it?
