    Powervalve servo repeatedly cycles with ski off

    Just started doing this with the ski off. It cycles every few seconds and drains the battery. Ski runs fine otherwise. Any ideas?

    Check the connections for corrosion / water / etc. clean and try again.

    it happen to me once , and i find out that one of the cables had more tension keeping the servo busy trying to adjust its position back to 0 .
    in other words it was out of adjustment.

    You can check what the other two people posted, if that doesn't fix the issue you have a bad power valve motor. I had a few on different ski's due the same thing. The motor will work fine while the ski is running, but you will need to disconnect the motor when your not running the ski so it won't run down your battery.

    Adjusted and lubed the cables. Connector is clean. no change. I have a spare motor I am going to swap in. Yea, I've been disconnecting it for now.

    I have a similar problem in that my servo is staying on. I hear it buzzing but the cables do not move. It kills my battery as well.
    I would like to know if replacing your servo fixed your problem?

    I haven't had time to swap it yet. I forgot to mention that I have a Protec power valve controller as well so I am going to have to wire that in. My cables more freely.

    If you want to try one, I have one on eBay, make any fair offer and it's yours.
