Customer Question
Was running fine then...

Was running fine then realized motor wasn't fully down. Got beeping signal. Motor won't stary.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Engine is a yamaha.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

I noticed rpm wasn't increasing when I gave it throttle.
