Kent,

I cannot feel the compressor run, I thought of that and put my hand on it.

Thomas,

Was the relay one of green cubes in the wire box? There are two soldered to the circuit board.

Seem to be more than one type switch out there, does anyone have a parts number or a good source for this switch. thanks, Steve   SV Forever Young

We had an identical problem with our main cabin unit. We trouble-shot it and decided on a bad relay. We ordered a replacement from a reputable US dealer. However, same problem. We the called in a pro. He diagnosed it as a bad relay. Seems the replacement relay was also defective. A second new relay fixed the problem. With some luck you won’t need a new compressor.

My aft cabin air conditioner is not working.  Last winter the heating element wasn't working and replacing the capacitors solved the problem.


Now the air conditioning doesn't work.  I double checked the capacitors, and they are all in spec.


When I turn on the unit with the temperature setting all the way to cold, after the timer has counted down, the fan comes on, and there is an audible click.  There was an odd sound from the compressor, almost like a shudder.  The fan continues to run, but does not cool the air. 


The Troubleshooting manual says it's either the Power Relay, or the Compressor is broke.  I suppose it could also be the thermostat.


Does anyone have any tips on diagnosing these issues?  Is the Power Relay the clear plastic boxes in the box with the capacitors?  I'm wondering if I can swap out the "K1 Power Relay" with one of the other AC's to check?


If you replaced the unit, what brand/model did you get?


Thanks in advance,

Bill,


That was my fondest hope, but I tested all five capacitors and they are all in spec.  I have spares for all of them and tested the spares to check the meter and they also tested in spec.  I also checked all the connections for tightness and corrosion, and all was well.  I replaced the 2 and 4 uF last winter, they were all well out of spec then and that solved my no-heat issue.  the 10 and 40uF caps tested in spec then and still do now.

Hope all is well with you,

Yanmar Diesel Lift Pump

I was going over the notes I made from a seminar the Mac Boring did for the care of Diesel engines.  They recommended you change the low pressure lift pump on Yanmars after 8 years whether there were problems or not.


Any diesel guru's out there have an opinion on this issue?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Climma Compact 9EH Troubleshooting tips?

 

That sounds like the 40uf or the 10uf Capacitor inside the control box. These are the start and run caps for the compressor. On your vintage of the Compact 9 there are a total of 5 caps.

Re: Can 220 Voltage Boat Plug Into a 115 Volt 30 Amp Shore Power

svperegrinus@yahoo.com
 

I know someone who installed a frequency converter transformer in his boat.  It cost significant money, space volume and weight.

Of course, an equivalent outcome can be achieved as follows:

1.  Have a battery charger that can accept 90V-to-250V and 50Hz-to-60Hz, such as a Mastervolt, or any other brand.

2.  Have an inverter that puts out the type of power you want, such as a Xantrex Pure Sine International 1800W/230V/50Hz, or any other brand.

Result --->  You can now power any suitable appliances from your inverter, regardless of the type of shorepower you have, worldwide.

Paul,

Can you tell me about your experience replacing the old B & G instruments with new Raymarine?  I will soon be doing the same.  Any trouble installing the new speed transducer?  How much did your new instruments cost and can you recommend a good source?

Thanks in advance,

Paul C.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] RUDDER ZINC SACRIFICE ANODES - QUESTION

Beaute Olivier
 

Hello Alex, Kent and Dennis,

the zincs are bolted into a stainless steel plate that is welded to the rudder shaft. There are 5 of them inside the rudder.
Alex, you need to drill the rudder with a 2 mm drill, on the other side of where your single zinc is attached, just to "feel" the stainless steel plate. Once you feel it, drill with an 8.5 mm and tap at 10mm. You will then put a new stainless steel screw into the new hole.
You could also try to find the next stainless steel plate above the one where you have your zinc, but this is more difficult, unless you have an accurate metal detector.

Bon courage.

Olivier

The bolt on the other side will be the same thread.  If the threads are stripped you may be able to rethread with the same size.  If you need to go larger, I’d rethread the other side the same so you don’t need two size wrenches.  With bigger bolts you may need to drill the zincs out to accommodate a larger bolt (I have to do that on all my zincs, they drill easily.)

As part of the project to apply the new gelcoat on the hull, we were in the process of replacing the zinc anodes on the rudder (the older Maramu has 2). We noticed that one of the anodes was missing when Simpatico went on the hard. Further investigation revealed that the bolt or element on which the anode is screwed (inside the spade) onto is also missing, so we are unable to screw the second anode in place. Any thoughts of how we should proceed in this case. As far as we know, the inside of the rudder spade is not serviceable.

Re: RUDDER ZINC SACRIFICE ANODES - QUESTION

Hi Alex,

On Libertad (Maramu #121) the zincs are attached with bolts that screw into a threaded sleeve in the rudder.  If the zinc is gone it makes sense that the bolt would be gone too.  Is there a hole that can be detected where the zinc should be mounted?  If so, it probably needs to be cleaned out to reveal the threaded sleeve.  If the threaded sleeve is gone, it shouldn't be too hard to glass in a new SS threaded sleeve to receive the proper size SS bolt.

Good luck
