There is a buzzer test button beside the power on/off button. So turn power on should buzzer sound or only sound when you push the test button? (It sounds when power on)

Should sound on power on to indicate no oil pressure. Should silence once diesel started and oil pressure built up. Test once diesel has started

That is exactly what it should do. Then turn off pretty quickly once engine going ( a sec or 2)

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

I have the same engine and the buzzer sounds on cold idle until I give it a few revs - I should probably adjust my idle speed

TL, oil pressure might be low at idle - often an early sign of worn pump or bearings...
