Hi bill; the number I posted was right off the part. However, since you posted that you could not locate it, I checked again and there is also a number 6213A on the part that maybe the correct number that burkert goes by. I can post a picture of any one is interested.

Bob,

I believe that Amel did not use the Jabsco brand control valve which is shown in that video, rather used a much better German made control valve made by "Burkert and the part number is 125657." Amel has a history of using Burkert control valves. The solenoid for the cooking gas(z) is made by Burkert and it rarely fails...and it costs 3-4 times more than the typical West Marine solenoid valve. It is likely that the BURkert can also be cleaned.

Mohammad and Aty on B&B Kokomo is the one that gave me the part number of 125657, which I have not been able to locate. I think something is wrong with that part number.

Hi all,


 After 17 years of valiant service our 30 amp, 24v charger has died. The green light still shines brightly and the fan works, but no output. A local electrician has pronounced a problem with the circuit board. I have written to Reya to see if they will repair it, but they are not known as quick correspondents.


The thing I love about the Dolphin charger is that it is small and light ( less than 5 kg ).  To replace it means finding another which is no more than 28cm  high and  34 wide.  The depth isn't critical.


Has anyone had success in 


a) getting Reya to repair an old Dolphin,   or


b) finding a suitable alternative which can fir in the same space ?

Re: Head Issue on SM

karkauai
 

I have a different probem with my aft head on Kristy. When at sea, the fill pump takes forever to start putting water into the bowl.  This is not a problem when at anchor, and it doesn't matter which tack I'm on when at sea.  There is a strainer with very fine mesh in the intake line that looks like an orange mushroom.  The stainless mesh is damaged and needs to be replaced, but it's acting like there is a one-way valve in the intake line that has failed.  Is there such a valve?  if so, where?  Any other ideas?

Does anyone know the manufacturer of the "orange mushroom" strainer in the intake line?  A source for the stainless strainer mesh?

I should say that on Kristy, (SM 243) there are separate thru-hulls for the seawater fill pumps located in the little "hallway" just inboard of the heads.  She does NOT have the long hoses from the sea chest/manifold in the engine room.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Are you sure that it is a 125657? I searched http://www.burkert-usa.com and was unable to find that part number. I sent burkert-usa.com and email requesting information, but also wanted to verify the part number with you.

The manufacturer of the valve on Kokomo is Burkert and the part number is 125657. It is a 24V 1/2" valve female threaded both sides.

We could not find the same in Turkey quickly, so a local marine supplier was able to find an equivalent with exact same electrical and plumbing connections. 1/2 hour of work and so far everything is working fine.

Hello Jeff;

We had a similar issue with both heads at the same time. However the solenoid valves would close after pressing the water switch several times.

There is a three wire connector at the back of the solenoid valve. I believe when you press the water valve button, power is applied and the valve opens to allow water into the bowl. When power is removed, the closure is by some mechanical means. That explains why removal of power or connectors does not assist in valve closure.

We changed both valves and all is well. It may be possible to open the valve and repair the issue, but I wanted it fixed now and left the valve repair as some future project.

Good Morning Amelians,

Recently, my forward head began an unprompted overflowing of fresh water. The 54 uses fresh water to flush the toilets. I had to shut off the fresh water pump to de-pressurize the fresh water system to stop the flow.

I tried to disconnect the various wires on the switch, with the hope that one would stop/start the flow. There is on option on the switch that activates flow, so I was trying to determine if the switch (and specifically that option on the switch), was defective.

Unfortunately, after every combination of wires were disconnected, including total disconnection, the flow continued whenever I re-pressurized the fresh water system.

Further investigation revealed that there is, what appears to be a black junction box where the fresh water hose is routed through. I'm wondering if there is a valve within, that is activated by the switch starting/stopping f low.

Could the valve be stuck open? Has anyone experienced this problem? I'm assuming that the 53 may have a similar valve, only it allows salt water flow.

To temporarily use that toilet, I disconnected the hose going into the toilet, and deadheaded the hose. A bucket of water from the sink was used to flush. At the time, it was effective to allow the temporary use of that crapper.

I'm not aboard, and won't be for about 5 weeks.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Best Regards to All.

The answer depends on the batteries and your charger. 

And if I were you, I would leave one pair of batteries connected while you change the remainder, then change that one pair last.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Alwgrip paint for the mast

Patrick McAneny
 

Paul, I painted my entire main mast and touched up the mizzen mast with a standard alwgrip color and it was a perfect match. I am not on the boat and it was several years ago , thus do not remember the name of the color. I would take off the small access panel on the side of the mizzen mast , take it to an awlgrip dealer to match the color with their color chart.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Can 24V circuit be available during batteries replacement?

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Thomas,

Last December when I changed my house batteries, I simply put the battery charger in “power supply” mode.

1) I switch the power supply off
2) removed all the house batteries
3) make sure none of the cable connected to the batteries could touch (I put paper towels and tape on the connectors)
4) change the mode of the battery charger to “power supply”
from there my fridge, freezer, pumps work normally.

When you are ready to install your new batteries, make sure to switch off the charger, then change it back to (lead batteries or what ever you are using).

unending flow

JEFFREY KRAUS
 

Good Morning Amelians,

Recently, my forward head began an unprompted overflowing of fresh water. The 54 uses fresh water to flush the toilets. I had to shut off the fresh water pump to de-pressurize the fresh water system to stop the flow.

I tried to disconnect the various wires on the switch, with the hope that one would stop/start the flow. There is on option on the switch that activates flow, so I was trying to determine if the switch (and specifically that option on the switch), was defective.

Unfortunately, after every combination of wires were disconnected, including total disconnection, the flow continued whenever I re-pressurized the fresh water system.

Further investigation revealed that there is, what appears to be a black junction box where the fresh water hose is routed through. I'm wondering if there is a valve within, that is activated by the switch starting/stopping flow.

Could the valve be stuck open? Has anyone experienced this problem? I'm assuming that the 53 may have a similar valve, only it allows salt water flow.

To temporarily use that toilet, I disconnected the hose going into the toilet, and deadheaded the hose. A bucket of water from the sink was used to flush. At the time, it was effective to allow the temporary use of that crapper.

I'm not aboard, and won't be for about 5 weeks.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Best Regards to All.

Can 24V circuit be available during batteries replacement?

Sv Garulfo
 

Hi all,


Can the 24V circuit be available if the chargers are on, when batteries have been removed -for example to be replaced and things get delayed...?


Thanks

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Alwgrip paint for the mast

Alan Leslie
 

I'd like to know what the colour is too....I need to touch up some places.
The Awlgrip colour card has a lot of whites on it, nothing just called White.
Maybe Olivier knows what it is ?
