Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Amel 54 engine room airflow fan problem

Hello Ron,

I hate to ask, but is the fan still working? Could you connect it directly to the appropriate voltage?

I had the same problem (on my Super Maramu 2000) both engine and genset fan were not working.

For the first one: http://nikimat.com/engine_room_fans.html I tested the capacitor, then simply changed the fuse and it worked.
For the second, the Jabsco fan was dead, so I replaced it.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Thanks Bill, Jose and Leo, thanks for the advise.
Highly appreciated.



I've replaced all relays (have four of them all linked
to each other) but the fans are still not working. It
clearly seems a signal issue as the fans are working fine
(have now changed the connection on the relay to the
'normally' open connection (87a) and can switch the
fans on manually. The signal to change the
'normally' open (I.e No connection) to closed comes
from somewhere at the engine but can't trace it far
enough to see where it goes. We have an auxiliary alternator
(140A) mounted on the engine which junction box houses the
Mastervolt battery charger as well as two relays of which
one seems to cater for the signal to start the fans.



The problem seems to be somewhere else. Will now have to
find an proper electrician to check the circuits.



If anybody has any other suggestions, feel free to let me
know.



Thanks,

Ron, SY LILY, Sint Maarten
