Navman Fuel Flow Meter 2100

We have a Navman Fuel Flow meter which has stopped reading. To be more precise it says we are never burning more than 0.3 Litres/hour! We think the transducer is broken...does anyone have any ideas where we could get a new transducer?

First thing to do is check the computer settings, mine did this and it turned out to be set to zero engines!
Next up check the transducer manually.

I ve got similar on one of my boats, and it stopped working, turns out all settings were fine,,, in the sender 'bit' you put inline, a bit of jerry can crap had been sucked up and was jamming the small turbine, so would not work...

took it out to have a look, used a bit of fuse wire to get it out, then a quick compressed air blast... stopped it happening in the future by putting a cheapy inline filter in before it gets to the turbine sender -- sorted....
