Slow Moving Flaps During Preflight

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am having the same issue with the flaps on my 2009 CTLS each time I do a preflight. During each preflight, I push in the battery breaker and lower the flaps to 35 to conduct the visual inspection. The flaps lower extremley slow, and the flap motor doesnt sound smooth like normal, but somewhat strained. After they eventually get lowered, I can raise them back up and start to lower them again, and they will beging to operate as normal. Then for the rest of the flight, they work normal. This occurs everytime, but only when I operate the flaps for the 1st time of the day. Has this occured to anyone else, or does anyone have and ideals on what this may be? 

Thanks in Advance,
