Minn Kota’s larger brushes, windings and commutators generate less heat, less noise and run cooler…extending motor life and conserving battery power. You get greater sustained thrust and more time on the water. A unique bearing system produces low rpms/high torque to cut down on fish-spooking noise — so quiet they’ll never hear you coming.

Any relays on that unit that you can see... likely needs to be replaced.

It has an electrical connection problem... check all the connections on the pedal control. your loosing connection making it die and when you kick it it connects again... look for a frayed wire. or a corroded connnection.

The trolling motor will just quit sometimes if I shake the handle several times it will start back up


sounds like a loose or bad connection on the throttle switch will need to open the control tiller and check connections if you have a meter ohm out the wires at the connector and switch to make sure all connections are good this is a bit involved and I recommend doing on a bench not in the boat If you need more detail just ask You know this sucker comes with a 2 year warranty right !

Can i convert my bow mounted mini kota 40 to a transom mount?


No you cannot. Due to the hard mounted foot controls, it has to stay a bow mount.

On a Minn Kota All Terrain trolling motor, what should the MOM/OFF/CON switch be set to when using the foot pedal manually?


You should only use the MOM (or momentary) setting when using the push button the foot pedal. Con will just keep the motor running and your foot control will only allow for direction and speed!

http://www.northlandmarine.com/MinnKotaQuickRef.htm

You need your serial number of the trolling motor, length of shaft, and thrust poundage.

or you could call Minn Kota direct and give them the same information at 800-227-6433.
