Eumania dishwasher water inlet solenoid

Edited

I just discovered a leak coming from the corroded water inlet solenoid at the base of the Eumenia dishwasher. By looking online I think I have found a replacement part on eBay from Calder Catering Parts. 

SV40 straight universal water inlet solenoid 230V 3/4” BSP to 2x 11.5 mm

When it arrives I will let you know if/how it fits.

Thanks Kent, and everyone else that replied with data and knowledge on this subject:

I have collated the following data from the RigRite dot com web site and the Goiot-Systems dot com web sites:  Please chime-in if something doesn't fit with what you are seeing on your boat (I am off the boat for a month or so, so will depend on you all to confirm the dimensions etc.)

Forward Cabin and Saloon Hatches:   Goiot Tradition Model (group as Goiot calls them)  Size 50.50, Code 121155, weight 8.0 kg, cutout dimension 500 x 500 mm, overall dimension 582 x 554 mm,  Acrylic thickness 10 mm, lid height 46 mm, lens size 506 x 506 mm.  RigRite Part numbers: Blue tinted Lens part number Goi 101176,  Fly screen Goi 93468, Gasket Goi HT-GS.

Forward Head Hatch: Goiot Tradition Model,  Size 50.37, Code 121154, weight 6.7 kg, cutout dimension 500 x 370 mm, overall dimension 554 x 451 mm,  Acrylic thickness 10 mm, lid height 46 mm, lens size 506 x 376 mm.   RigRite Part numbers: Blue tinted Lens part number Goi 101175,  Fly screen Goi 93464, Gasket Goi HT-GS.

Aft Cabin Hatch: Goiot Cristal Model,  Size T-50 size, Model 49.36, Code 115753, Overall dimension 559 x 452 mm, height 28 mm.  Acrylic thickness 10 mm.  Lens size is 478 x 348 mm.   RigRite Part numbers: Blue tinted Lens part number is Goi100920, Fly screen is Goi 101651X, Gasket Goi HC-GL.

Thanks for all the help and expertise.  Per Joel's and Kent's suggestion I think I will just use an orbital sander to to opacify the lenses on the forward two hatches as opposed to applying a film.

Sincerely,

Thank you.  That is very attractive.  Unfortunately, it is the bottom part of my faucet that broke!

Just measured mine. I believe the Lorraine’s on the Santorin is the same size albeit a 12v version. My rubber caps are 30mm across the base and 20mm high.

Hi James,
I used Dow Chemical’s Dowsil 795 silicone sealant.  It comes in a grey color that works well in the hatch.

Goiot offers both blue and gray lenses.  I am virtually certain that the saloon hatch lenses is blue, but am uncertain about the color of the aft cabin hatch lenses color.   Any thoughts and information would be appreciated.

Rubber caps for Lofrans switches

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

Hi All,

 A while back some of us were looking to replace the rubber caps on the switches that Amel had put on top of the Lofrans winches--without having to spend 14 Euros each for a new switch.

 I may have found a source of equivalent caps   www.vital-parts.co.uk   a UK supplier of rubber and PVC caps. About £1 each !

 We are in London,  not on board, so I can only guess at the correct dimensions--25mm diameter and 25mm height ? Is there anyone on board who can tell me ? Otherwise I will buy some and experiment.

We have had a failure of our galley faucet on our Sharki.  It looks like the new one Andy on PALADIN purchased from the German catalog would be a great replacement.  The posting is from 3 years ago -- not sure whether Andy is on the forum any more.  Does anyone know whether it will fit directly on the old fittings coming out of the wood?

Hi Gary. Not sure of anything except Amel sanded those two hatches, with a jitterbug, to opaque those hatches for privacy.
Pretty sure your guesses on the colors are correct.

Re: New furlers on an Amel 54

Arno Luijten
 

The point is that I wanted to also the EM boxes available as a backup. Also I wanted to protection to work both on furling and unfurling. I did think about the argument that the majority of power is dissipated when furling, but if something snags it might as well be when unfurling.

The staysail on our Amel only has 2 wires from the remote switch and no 24 volt feed line to the switch from the sail locker. I also did not like to use the 6 pin plug for both the connection of the furler as the connection of the remote switch. Using separate plugs makes troubleshooting easier.

This combined with the additional functionality of the local switch and status LEDs made me come up with this installation. I did not say there were no other ways of doing it. They all have drawbacks.
