We have been having problems with the water leaking...probably a bad gasket. i'm thinking that it shut down because something important got wet. this morning i have no power to the machine. i have moved it to another outlet that i know is working and still no power. is there a reset button?

I take it that this unit runs the power on board and is permanently fixed in the boat
you mention new impeller so logically that means that it is water cooled drawing the cooling water from outside (underneath the boat)
pursuing logic further if that is the case then there is a shut down circuit for the water flow to prevent overheating should the water inlet become blocked ( weeds, plastic cloth etc)
from your question and statement I would be looking in that area to make sure water flow is not restricted or the protection circuit is operational ( no corrosion in terminals and wires )
Water gets into any engine either from a hole or a head gasket. Usually a head gasket will go bad and leak coolant into the cylinders and down into the oil pan. Since it's probably a diesel, you probably won't be able to check for or notice if it's puffing grey smoke. that's a sign that your head gasket is bad.
There are many things that can cause your engine to overheat. It could be caused by a bad thermostat, a faulty fan clutch, a defective electric fan motor (if your vehicle is equipped with one), torn/broken hoses, or a bad water pump. It could also be something much more serious like a blown head gasket, intake manifold gasket, or a cracked cylinder head or engine block. It could also be something as simple and easy as an inaccurate temperature sending unit making you "think" the engine is overheating when it actually is not.
In any event, proper diagnostics need to be performed immediately. An overheating engine is nothing to mess around with unless you are very wealthy and can afford to replace an entire engine.
If the camera just shuts down without warning the problem most probably is the battery. Often times devices such as cameras lose contact with their points for the battery and at that point since there is no power to the system the system automatically shuts down. Check how well the battery sits inside the unit if it has room for shaking and probably loss of contact try getting something to support it so as to ensure proper contact. If. This does not work then component inside the units board is bad and the unit needs to be opened and examined. Hope this solution has been helpful?
Yes this is bad. That almost always means you have a leaking head gasket. This is something you should get into a shop as soon as possible as a leaking head gasket can cause other problems in your car such as valve and cylinder damage. Unfortunately, this is probably going to be an expensive fix as the engine at least has to be completely taken apart, sometimes even removed. I would take it to a shop you trust.
the battery terminal being loose would cause that, since the rectifier would freak out. the leak you speak of is probably not eh head gasket ro you would have compression problem with amount of oil that can run down the bike. It sounds like a corner on the valve cover gasket or something I think there is a cover for the valve adjust ment there so check it out the gasket may be worn. no biggie get a new one. help this helps
When it does not pump the water at all the engine brakes after few miles.
Check if there is any leak in the water lines, or in the radiator.
If there is no leak, that means that the water is being vapourized inside the engine because of a defective head gasket. When this happens you often can also get white smoke coming back from the exhaust.
Lou, the reason for the leak was probably a bad door gasket allowing condensation out. Now, the leak is so bad that the freezer coils are full of ice. Clean or replace the gasket. Test the seal by running a 2 inch wide piece of typing paper through the gasket area in a couple of places. Resistance must be felt.
Either remove the back panel in the freezer to defrost the ice or wait a full two days for defrosting to take place. While you're at it, clean the condenser coils. Want to see if you have enough refrigerant? Shut unit for at least 15 minutes. Locate the largest tube coming out of the compressor. It must be clean. Start the unit. If will frost and either dry off or become icy after at least 5 minutes. If it stays frosted, you probably need gas.
