Intermittent whining sound while trolling

Hi, I have a 2017 G2 300 with about 550 hrs on it now. I’m having intermittent whining high pitch Squealing sound while at low RPM’s. I used my phone to film it and will post if anyone knows how I can do that. Thanks Jim

Most likely a noisy electric fuel pump or possibly aerated fuel. Either should be quicky determined by your Evinrude dealer

***************

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.

Re: Intermittent whining sound while trolling

No wife on board! Seems to only happen at trolling speeds and is intermittent. I put in long days trolling at 900-1000rps. One trip it will happen for several minutes and then the next two or three trips it’s fine! No codes have been thrown or stored on my icon display.
