Your Team Flight Safety
On A320 aircraft an APU oil overfill may occur when batteries are switched off too early after APU shutdown. According to normal procedures the batteries should be switched off after the APU door is closed. However, when switching off batteries too early, APU oil may not completely flow back into the sump and remains in the APU. Refilling APU oil under the above conditions up to the “FULL” mark may result in a sump overflow upon starting the APU the next time. APU oil thus may run into the APU casing with the potential to contaminate bleed air.
More information on contaminated cabin air and the Fume Event Guide is available on our Fume Event website.
