Hi George & Kim,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
your sensor may be only dirty, as my one was.
Look at the head surface of cilinder, opposite cable side. There are 2 very, very little, quasi invisible, dots. They may be covered with salt. Well rinse. I also used a thin wooden point to remove the dirty.
I had to clean them twice in the last five years-
I hope that It may help in your situation.

Subject: [Amel] Efector Anchor Chain Counter Sensor
Has anyone sourced the Efector Anchor Chain Counter Sensor part #1B5076 IB-3020-BNKG? I have a photo of the inoperative part posted http://groups.yahoo.com/group/amelyachtowners/photos/album/2109031520/pic/163172518/view?picmode=&mode=tn&order=ordinal&start=1&count=20&dir=asc
under ANCHOR CHAIN COUNTER SENSOR. I contacted a US distributor for Efector parts http://www.ifm.com/ifmus/web/mailstart.htm and was advised they no longer made this part. The replacement part is a bit longer and has a plug in adapter that you wire in with an additional cable that must be purchased. From Efector US cost for part is $130 and cable $18USD. Has anyone tried anything different? Does anyone know how long a ife the replacement part has? Thanks so much,
George and Kim
