Leaking transducer?

dnelsondnelson Posts: 197 Deckhand
I have a black tar like substance leaking from my transducer on a 798SI unit. Is this from a crack or could this be from the unit being left on and not turned off till I was washing the boat a few hours later? I was told they get hot out of the water.

    Mine did the same (different unit) but I left it on for like 2 days out of the water. Still works ..

    If the transducer is "leaking" this is not normal. Please call customer service at 1 800 633 1468 to discuss this with an agent. Should water get into the transducer housing it could cause the transducer not to function correctly.

    Thank you,
