Water System

Postby Carlo » August 17th, 2014, 9:51 pm

Just purchased a 1988 Carver Mariner 3697. Ice maker not receiving water (entire system was winterized) and pressurized water system not functioning. I found the manual online with a general water diagram, but can't find the 3 tank diagram. Can someone help me locate the diagram and figure out how to get water to the ice maker? (This is my first boat!)

heres what i would do hook up water to water inlet from the shore supply. run your sinks etc bleed out air/antifreeze etc. is this possible? dont know how it was winterized since you didnt say. ice maker it could have air in the line i would take the panel off the bottom of the ice maker loosen the water connection on it and let the air bleed out, when you have water coming out of it reconnect it and when the ice maker is cold enough and calling for water it should inject it. if not the solenoid for the icemaker could be bad, its cheap and basically the same as whats on your fridge at home.
you comment on pressure water not working. sorry but you filled the tank yes? and the panel/breaker is on for the freshwater pump? its a 12v pump if it is and not working the only option is to locate the pump and verify it has power on it. if theres power there the pump is bad or the pressure switch on it is or stuck. i have a carver 405 so i am sorry i cant tell you the location of your water tank. have you looked under the beds many time tanks are there my friend has a mariner from the 80's and they are in the salon floor. by the way if its your first boat you need to be opening every panel/hatch etc and poking around some so you know whats behind things and have an idea where stuff is that way if you have problem with something you will know how to get to it
