Boat Motor Steady Alarm

I have 1997 , 115 Yamaha. Great motor for me and my 18'Kenner tunnel.

Very reliable. Last trip, had a solid alarm buzzing. I shut down engine waited for a minute and started it back up. If I ran WOT the buzzing alarm would sound again. Shut down for one minute and it starte up with no alarm. If I ran half throttle, no alarm.

I was in POC at the time and took it to Sonnys. They have been my mechanic shop for years. After I explained my situation, the two mechanics there said, "sounds like thermostats and perhaps impeller".

Within the hour, I saw the impeller come out and it was split all the way around and the two thermostats were full of minerals deposits. They replace the items and I was back on the water in less than 2 hours.

The water pressure on my gauge has never been higher and the engine is very quiet. It has always been quiet, but it is more so now. Not sure why. But it runs great. Love this engine.

Thank you guys at Sonnys. Giving you a shout out.

Check your deflectors. I had the same problem on my 96 88 SPL Johnson. I had the deflectors changed and the problem went away. Basically, the outboard was running hot when running wide open due to that the deflectors were clogged.

What is a "deflector"??? I've had lots of engines and never heard that term.

If an outboard is giving you an alarm, make sure it stays cool by not running WOT and get it to a shop. It could be anything from clogged intake, salt corrosion in the channels, torn head gasket, and on the etecs thermostats and pressure relief valves. I do know a guy that ignored it and the block cracked. that's more expensive than fixing the original problem.

Start with the low cost stuff but a good mechanic will help you faster than just blind trouble shooting. My head gasket got corroded on an etec and that was the issue. So it might not always be just one thing.

Yamaha’s don’t have the “deflectors” Johnson/ Evinrude engines have around the cylinders to direct water flow.
