  • Overheat alarm

    As I wait on my mobile mechanic I am trying to narrow down my alarm. I only get an alarm at 1000 rpm's or less. 1000+ it runs great. I will have him check the lower unit pump and housing as suggested by another member. Any other thoughts?

    Some info on what engine you have, year, HP, how old the WP is, salt water use, fresh water use, hours on engine, flushed? etc..

    I guess its a Yamaha..

      It's a 2010 Yamaha T50TLR. Fresh water 470 hours. Professionally maintained. It was flushed and water pump replaced by 2 different mechanics. I opened up the exhaust port and cleaned out a pile of debris. It now runs great above 1000 rpm's. I posted earlier but was able to narrow the issue down. Hoping someone has seen this issue as a certified Yamaha mechanic could not figure it out.

        Problem apparently solved. I removed the cooling water temperature sensor and cleaned it. the alarm is now occasional. I put an ohm meter on the sensor and the values did not match the manual. New sensor is on order.
