    Hi all. We have an 05 oyster last night as the dish was deploying as it became vertical it started clicking and blew the 10a fuse I have removed the dish and fibre glass cover changed the fuse switched on there appears to be no movement and the clicking is somewhere in the cogs it could of course be an electrical noise any suggestions?
    Because I am cold and wet up here and corrie is starting shortly thanks John

    Your description suggests that a limit switch has failed, the dish reaches the end of its travel, something has to give. With any luck there'll be an overload clutch clicking away preserving the gears. Doubt if can be fixed easily on site.
