Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

What you are running into is that the motor is overheating. The water pump in this engine needs to be replaced every year. Even ot the engine has been sitting. The rubber impeller will develop a set in it and not pump water efficiently. After the impeller is replaced, the alarm will not come on anymore.
