Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Problems hooking up new Bamar EJF 1.0 to new Boxtron E14s Any help appreciated!

Not much help from us either: our genoa furler was switched to Reckmann by the previous owner and the trinquet is still on the belt driven bamar MEJ 1.02 (currently with a broken belt, waiting for a spare...). Also, the boxtron unit is an EM and it replaced an E14 one that is still there in the bow locker. When troubleshooting the failed furler motor, I found the boxtron only let out ~16V when the solenoids were energised. That didn't seem right, even though I didn't have a benchmark to compare. By chance the previous owner had left a spare EM boxtron that I installed and that let ~24V through. Still no rotation, and turned my attention to the belt, which I discovered was broken and tightly wrapped around the drive...
Anyway I don't know if or why the E14 was replaced by EM. The previous owner also left 2 spare E14S boxtron in the boat, in the packaging sent by Bamar.
Sorry, it's a long story for not much precise information.
It would be surprising that both motor units have the same defect but not impossible. Ideally you would bring one of them to a 54 nearby and hook it up to their boxtron box to isolate the fault. Have you tried energising the motor directly with 24V, with the expectation it should just rotate?
Our bow locker is pretty damp too, i will check those bolts. So are our other lockers when water runs on deck. What grease do you us on the gaskets? Silicon I presume ?
