Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bow-Truster overheat
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The Amel 54 Bow Thruster has an internal thermal switch (sometimes called thermal reset or thermal cutout). 10 - 15 minutes is a lot of use and will probably cause the thermal switch to open. You should limit your use to 5 second bursts with at least 5 seconds between bursts. Sometimes people will overuse a bow thruster by constantly correcting back-and-forth. If this is what you are doing, try to minimize having to correct.
The thermal switch in the Amel 54 bow thruster has been known to become defective. I know of one case of this happening and SidePower suggested that the thruster needed to be returned to them for replacement. I am not sure if you or I could do this replacement of the thermal switch because I have never done it.
