A Beech 200, N191FL, incurred an electrical fire in the landing gear motor and associated wiring during the takeoff initial climb at Reno, Nevada. The aircraft returned to the Reno-Cannon International Airport with the landing gear jammed in a partially retracted configuration and the gear collapsed on touchdown. The aircraft was operated by the pilot and was on a cross country personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time and no flight plan was filed for the operation. The aircraft incurred substantial damage. The pilot and his four passengers were not injured. The flight was originating at the time of the mishap as a cross country flight to San Carlos, California.
The pilot reported that just after moving the landing gear handle to the up position in the initial climb, the cockpit began to fill with smoke. The pilot said he dumped the cabin in an attempt to clear the smoke. He noticed the landing gear appeared to be hung in an in transit position and he pulled the cockpit circuit breaker. The pilot stated that the smoke, which smelled of burning electrical insulation, appeared to get heavier and heat could be felt on the cockpit floor. The pilot said he requested and received a return to airport landing clearance from the control tower, and, just after touchdown, the right main landing gear collapsed.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The improper overhaul of the right main landing gear actuator by maintenance personnel, and the operator's failure to assure that the airplane manufacturer's mandatory service bulletin requiring modification of the gear motor circuit protection was accomplished."
