Niad stabilizer making unusual loud humming noise

Customer Question

Niad stabilizer making unusual loud humming noise
Submitted: 2 years ago.
Category: Boat
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
can a faulty hose cause this noise? We think there might be an internal collapse inside one of the hoses
Expert:  Charles replied 2 years ago.
Yes a collapsed hose can cause the system to makes noise and the pressure is trying to get past it. Also so could a binding stabilizer. Have a helper activate the system, while you watch the tops of the units to see if they are moving smoothly or if there is binding. If you seen a binding, You mayneed to haul the boat to get it freed up.
