Re: [Amel] Yanmar 4jh3hte negative starter solenoid.

Dear Amel friends. I read so many posts of electrical pronblems caused by corosion. WD40, CRC or what ever it is called in your part of the world is an absolute esential. We have electrical componentry in the most unforgiving environment possible, salt everywhere. I spray liberally and often all around my engine room on the engines, engine mounts, alternators, starter motors, pumps, electrical  and on all exposed electrical conections throughout the boat. I commend this practice to you along with very often and regular oil and filter changes and fuel filter changes. Grease, , oil and oil filters and WD40 are the cheapest spare parts you will ever buy.
Regards to you all.

Hi to all,
if it may helps :
some years ago I had same prolem.
A yanmar technician came on board and solved the prolem with little W40 spry in side. You can easly remove the blak rubber cover.

John,

Attached are photos of the solenoid and the box.

They are not available in the USA.

The black button is a manual override. That what makes it different than a
normal starter solenoid.

I would "exercise" the solenoid with the black button.

You can then either buy one from a local auto parts store for $20-$30
without the black button or get one from Amel for 70-80 Euros. The solenoid
must be an isolated ground.

Except for the black button the two are identical. The stock auto supply
ones even have the same bolt holes.

They are 12 volts. The solenoids for the Genoa furler are the same except
they are 24 volts.

Yes it is the gold colored solenoid with the rubber top. I have not tried
exercising the button - will give that a go tomorrow.
My email address is notrevie123@gmail.com <mailto:notrevie123%40gmail.com>

I would be grateful if you could send me the part # info as I would like to
replace the faulty solenoid with the same model rather than a generic
version.

Thanks for your help!

Is it the gold colored solenoid with a black rubber top? Did you try
pressing the rubber top many times to loosen the solenoid?

If so it is a Valeo relay and only available from Amel for about 75 Euros
plus shipping.. You can also go to any auto supply and get a starter
solenoid 12 volts with an isolated ground for about $30. it will do the
same job.

The negative solenoid on my yanmar starter circuit is sticking. I have to
tap it with a wrench before the engine will start.

Sent picture of it to Yanmar ( see link ) who stated that it was not a
Yanmar part. Does anybody know if this solenoid was added by Amel and if
so
where I can get a replacement?
