383c transducer gives nothing but noisy red feedback at medium or high speeds
My transducer is installed as instructed but when at mediium to high speeds it just shows a bunch of garbage. Red feedback across the entire screen. Any ideas on what adjustment mat be needed? Up, Down, ?? Thanks

Re: 383c transducer gives nothing but noisy red feedback ...
If it works at low speeds fine but has problems at higher speeds, basically you need to lower the transducer down further as it is lifted by the boat at higher speeds, or is getting caught in the turbulence of surface water created at higher speed. Lower the transducer a half inch at a time and re-test.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com. White is common, Black high speed, blue medium speed, red low speed; Brown wires are for the capacitor; The remaining 4 are for selecting the rotation. For details look at the AOSmith print here.

The reason the a/c is on the high speed is to move the air because cold air is harder to move, slowing down the speed may cause your a/c to freeze-up. You can try changing the speed by reading the wiring schematic, take your time to become confortable with the schematic, and it will tell you which wire color conforms to each speed, locate the high speed wire color, and you will find that connected, locate the medium speed wire color, then disconnect the high speed and reconnect the medium speed wire in it's place. Be sure to tape the end of high speed wire so that it is insulated from the cabinet. ABOVE ALL MAKE SURE THE POWER SWITCH IS OFF BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS
On a 3 speed switch you usually have 4 terminals, and they are marked L1, 1, 2 and 3.
L1 which is line voltage from the electrical cord or wall plug, #1 low speed usually a red wire from motor, #2 medium speed usually a blue wire from the motor and #3 high speed usually a black wire from the motor. That is if the fan is low,medium and high, if it says high, medium and low then reverse #1, #2 and #3
It sounds like fan motor is okay. There are two motor windings -- one low speed, one medium speed. Low winding gives you low speed, medium winding gives you medium speed, both windings give you high speed -- so I would say if you get high speed, both windings are good.
The remote (the hand held transmitter) controls the speed by raising and lowering the frequency of the current which is 60 cycle coming to the fan ceiling box. If the fan speed -selector switch (usually a pull switch) is set to high, when the remote (transmitter) signals the receiver to change speeds, the frequency of the current is changed by the receiver (the receiver is usually in the fan housing).
Sounds like you'll need to replace the remote system -- these come in sets, both transmitter and receiver, and cost about $30. If you're not experienced with wiring fans, you should get an electrician to do the job.
If this fan has a pullchain that also controls the fan speed, and you have a remote, the pullchain has to be set for the highest speed. If it is set at medium or low, it will mess with the remote operation. Note: usually high speed is the first pull after the "off" position.
