Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dolphin Reya 30 amp charger
Hi John,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Sounds like it is not a fan problem and overheat shutdown on your charger.
You can by the way hear the fan running when the charger is switched on and
it is hot. I got support through e-mail. As I recall, they passed the
problem to their own technical support who advised me of the identity of the
failed component. I dealt with Lucy Kelly at Reya. Her e-mail is lucy
Good luck with the repair. I hope that it is not too expensive!

Thanks for the suggestion. We keep our boat at Corpus Christi, Texas,
so it does get very hot in the summer. I did switch the charger off
for 24 hours before attempting to restart it with no luck.
I left the boat unattended for 2 weeks with the charger switched on.
Upon my return I noticed quite quickly that it was no longer
generating a charge.
I have found the following dealer in the US www.skandvik.com. One of
their tech's is supposed to call tomorrow. They also do bench
repairs. Did you get your support from Reya by phone or e-mail?

the overheat sensor to shut it off. If you are in a hot climate,have you
allowed it to cool down and se if it starts up for a minute or so?The
device above pin 14 of IC1 was the culprit. The markings had beenerased but
I did get some support from Reya. I believe the device was amosfet. I
replaced it myself and the charger has worked fine ever since. Ofcourse it
could have failed for many other reasons, but it would be worthchecking the
fan operation first.amp
charger is still functioning correctly.
