Leach relays are used extensively on all Boeing, Airbus, Douglas, and Gulfstream aircraft. They can be found in numerous other types of corporate aircraft.

They are extremely reliable as they can last numerous decades with thousands of cycles.

Years ago, I encountered a relay from a Gulfstream that was acting like the car blinkers of old. The coil would get hot and go open which caused the relay to relax. As soon as the coil cooled, it would energize again.

In my short few months on the 767 I have found "two" examples of the same fault.

rotate.aero/forum/767-ata27/304-ata-27-62-auto-speedbrakes

Both have had the same part number BACR13CF2A.

In defense of Leach, both of the recently failed relays were quite old (as noted by the pitted "feel" of the case).

Another one......

You can't hear it click over the equipment cooling noise, but the repetition was every few seconds.

Another relay acting like a car blinker.

This time for the right wing anti-ice valve disagree warning.

The relay must be energized to keep the warning from view, so it spends most of its life engaged.

Activated relays get HOT, which causes higher failure rates.
  

  
A suitable substitute, part number BACR13CF2AB can be used as a replacement.
