Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Suddenly screaming noise from the bowthruster and not moving the prop anymore
Good afternoon Alexandre,
Thank you so much for your advice and explanation.
I noticed that in your case the bearings in the foot were worn out. But is it also possible that the problem can be with the connection between the shaft and the electric motor? It seems the ‘screaming noise’ is coming from the top, because it is so loud.

Hello fellow Amel
I just moored my boat in
the El Portet Marina in DENIA, Spain and almost done, the
bow thruster did not function anymore and made a screaming
noise. The prop is still there but it can turn almost
without any resistance.
Any idea what can be wrong
and how to repair is very much
