Furuno 1930 radar magnetron does not heat

I need to know which wires supply the power to the magnetron heater. The scanner ( open array ) does not work properly when it is cold out, but works great when it is hot out. I see that in the bottom of the scanner there are 2 wire that are not connected? Possibly they supply the power to the magnetron heater?

If the radar shows targets at all, the magnetron is properly connected. There are only 2 wires to the magnetron. The heater voltage and input signal are both on the same pair.

How to install FURUNO magnetron MG5436 for Radar


Assuming you have the right magnetron for the right model radar, you desolder the two leads, remove the 4 or 6 mounting screws and reverse the process for the new maggie. Let radar run in standby for 30 minutes before going to transmit. Most Furuno radars have auto-tune and will tune itself to new magnetron.

No heading pulse


Open the dome cover and check the belt that spins the array. Sometimes the gear on the motor that holds the belt comes loose and will not spin the array. I have seen this on 4 radars and all were about the same age. The gear has a small allen head set screw. Move the gear down and tighten the screw down. If you are still having issues there are some more troubleshooting techniques you can do, but you will need a multimeter to test voltages coming from the display.

Furuno 1715 gives "no heading pulse" error. Image normal, but clocked due to no reference. Pulled heading sensor (4X6X1mm black box, two wires, labeled NRS-101) and checked continuity across leads. Open...


Heading pulse is a reed switch sensor built inside the dome. upon each rotation of the array the reed switch is activated. Do a visual inspection of your array (inside) to make sure it is spinning (verify from a distance). Don't get eye level with the rotating array it can cause great harm to your eyes. Normally I have seen the belt slip off and also the lanyard attachment get caught in the array. Check those two things as well.

Our Radar Furuno 1715-24NM On. ( Power in Oke ) but can not show drawing in monitor/lcd. thanks. regard - damanik


If you have no radar targets, go to longest range 24 miles, gain full, rain and sea minimum, do you have noise, if so, need magnetron, if not, need cable from display to dome.

My ship furuno radar hasn no sweep only a center dot.all other fed in information like speed,GPS input o.k.


The symptom you describe sounds like a case of no radar targets. To further diagnose, put radar on the longest range and turn Gain to full, Sea Clutter to Minimum, Rain Clutter to Minimum, and observe the screen. The presence of "grass" or evenly distributed clutter indicates that the receiver and cabling is good and the radar may not be transmitting. No transmit is caused by a bad magnetron or a bad modulator in the antenna, or depending on model there is still an outside chance that the power supply in the display has failed.

Hi, Furuno 1731 radar - no sweep/echo seen on screen. Scanner is rotating and other display is normal.


Go to longest range and full Gain min Rain and Sea Clutter
Do you have speckle? Yes = Receive OK, Wiring OK,No transmit (magnetron or modulator) No = Most likely a broken wire
There is a very tiny coax (shielded wire) that is know to lose its' center conductor, which is very delicate

Error SB SIG MISS on FURUNO CRT radar?


Either your reed switch is bad or your antenna is not rotating. You may hear the motor spinning but that does not mean the array is. If the array is not spinning make sure the belt did not come off the motor. Start there.
