View the latest post Attachment(s) 2000 396MY icemaker removal
Icemaker stopped making Ice it is a Raritan and working with tech support I now need to remove icemaker from cabinet to continue service diagnostics. I cannot figure out how to remove the unit. It looks like screwed to ss frame. I think they built the boat around the icemaker.
When opening the small round access port forward of the unit I see screws but cannot get to them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have twin ZF280A transmissions mounted to twin Volvo TAMD 480P’s. The port engine has developed a 5-7 second delay in the detent position going in fwd or reverse, past the detent response is immediate pulled the screen on the from the aft end all was clean, oil only has 50 hours on it and maintained proper level since changing. Anyone have any ideas. This is a 2001 Carver 466. Thanks for any ideas!

View the latest post Attachment(s) 2005 Marner Stern Access Doors
Last week I was in a hurry to get to a bridge opening and unfortunately left the dock whist still plugged in. I broke the starboard access door to the power hookup. UGH!
The door is made out of Carver 'white' lucite. (we know it's an off-white)
I visited two businesses today and one can manufacture a unit in standard white. The second offered the same service with an additional option of a 'seafoam starboard', which leaned beige. The latter material does not have a 'shiny' surface and will not match the finish of the fiberglass.
I am thinking that if I can find a source for the lucite, I would purchase it and then bring it to the business to fabricate.
As we well know, I cannot contact the Carver folks for information on the source for part and am wondering if anyone on the site has been in a similar situation and how you went about the fix.

I'm having an issue with power to my aft cabin head macerator and waste tank level display. I'm thinking they are both on the same circuit, as they both cut out at the same time. Additional to the breaker in the power control box, is there anywhere else to check? I don't recall Carver using fuses, after the breakers.

View the latest post Attachment(s) What is it?
We had a Sealand 8600 with Bidet toilet in our aft cabin head. While tightening the connections we snapped the plastic check valves. This head is a discontinued model! We looked into getting replacement parts and decided to purchase a new head. Yesterday, we were at the boat and taking measurements, adding some shut off valves and other things. We have always known that this part was in the boat and thought it was a part of the head. Taking a closer look at it, we have no idea what it is or what purpose it serves, so before we haul it out, we thought we would ask here. It is attached to the water lines. Has an input line but no output. There are no identifying marks on it anywhere. Sorry the photos are all rotated 90 degrees clockwise. This is on a 3607.

Had a loose fitting on my bridge hydraulic steering system of my 2001 3565 which caused fluid to leak down onto the vinyl interior salon headliner. Bummer! Does anyone know what manufacturer/color the vinyl is in this photo to save me lots of time trying to find something that might be a match? Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!

New owner and can't figure out the two dimmer switches for the salon lights. Previous owner told me push once and release then hold the up side until light come on and adjust to the desired brightness. Tried both and can't get either to come on at all. What am I missing?? Thanks

Hi Guys , I bought last December a 2006 Carver mariner 36 .
The boat has the 5.7 volvo penta engines .
The survey found no issues with the boat .
The engines both have 300 hours on them .
As it was stored in a heated place 2 hours away from location , I brought over the water to my home .
My problem is that both engines only make 3200 rpm and then stull out .
When I reading correctly the engines should make 5500 rpm .
As I ask a mechanic ,he said it could be the wrong probs .
But it still shut off on me , even in neutral at 3200 .
If it would be the gas pumps, then either off the engines would shut off at diffrent idel.
Any one out here no what my problem is ,or if it is from carver restricted in the beginning.
Thanks for any input
