Evinrude E-TEC EMMs do regularly fail and a replacement can get quite expensive and are often not on stock at BRP leaving you as boat owner with a difficult decision.

A path to consider is repairing your EMM yourself, however there are several challenges which can make the journey quite difficult.

Complexity of EMMs:

At first glance repairing an EMM might seem easy, just remove the broken components and solder the new components back on the EMM. However, this is easier said than done, due to the complexity of an EMM. An EMM is vulcanized and therefore the circuit board is very hard to access. You could try to remove some of the potting and access the circuit board. But this often leads to unrepairable damage to the circuit board.

Removing the EMM from the housing would require very much care and luck to be sure you will not damage anything without the right tools.

When you manage to remove the EMM from the housing you will need to find the right components. However, due to Evinrude not producing anymore it is very hard to find the parts.

When researching how to repair your EMM you will most likely end up at this Youtube video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcEQe_L36OQ at Hardware Care we would however strongly discourage you to repair your EMM yourself.

We have years of experience repairing E-TEC EMMs and have the right tools and knowledge to repair the units. We often see that people who followed the tutorial above or who tried to repair the unit itself make the damage even worse resulting in a unrepairable EMM which will lead to even higher costs.
