An Airbus A319-114 aircraft operated by Air Canada Rouge, was conducting flight ROU1727 from Pointe-à-Pitre/Le Raizet, Guadeloupe (TFFR) to Montreal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau Intl, QC (CYUL) with 5 crew members and 45 passengers on board. During cruise flight, the flight crew detected an odour consistent with the smell of burning plastic, accompanied with an abnormal sound emanating from below the deck plate, and associated vent blower fault messages. The aircraft diverted to San Juan/Luis Muñoz Marín Intl, Puerto Rico (TJSJ) and declared a PAN PAN
message. The flight landed without incident.
The operator’s maintenance inspected the aircraft and identified the blower fan to be defective. The unit was removed, and replaced. Subsequent tests were completed with a satisfactory result and the aircraft was returned to service.
