    I havae a 70lb Maxxum bow mount. When I try to use it at high speeds it just quits as well. This time it hasnt come back on like it did before, due to possible over heating, i guess. Checked everything, all looks good. Talked to Minn Kota, they said that the "board" in the foot pedal might be fried?????

Same deal with mine, was using it with no problems until I turned up the trust alittle and it just quit, never turned back on nor did the circuit breaker pop. Talked to Minn Kota thy said the board might be fried as well. So took it to a authorized dealer. I had 2 issues (only minor with the motor) Easy fix for mine was under the button on the foot pedal is a small round magnet about half the size of a pencil in diameter or so. The tech said it got recessed down to far and if it should happen again just pull it up again. So took it back home re-installed and no luck, just heard a tiny ticking noise from the foot pedal, no prop movement. SO I checked the batteeries, all good. Even though the connectons had very minor corrosion I decided to disconnect all and clean them. Re-connected them and now I am back in business. Dont understand it, but hey it works until I actually test it out on the lake. Hope it helped

    Also I asked the tech , he said to check your breaker, if it is 30-35 amp, upgrade to 50 amp, but most boats already come equipped with 50.

Hello Jim. You have lost your power some where. Start with the wire & terminal connections to the battery. Open the bottom of the foot pedal and check the wiring connections there. Note be very careful here for you have the battery still connected. You may have a fuse in line some where blown. You can check for voltage with a VOM(volt meter) on the wire terminals. Good Luck.

    1. possibly a broken connection to the motor where the propeller is located. 2. Also could be a bad motor. 3. Look for a fuse location for a possible blown fuse to the motor. 4. motor brushes could be the problem.

    Burning out fuses on trolling motor at battery


    not enough info. I went the the min kota website, they show four maxxum 80's at different voltages.is it a 12v 24v or larger? without a year model I'll have no reference to what wiring schematic Is the fuse connected inline with the trolling motor? what size amp fuse are you burning up? well I can give you some troubleshooting tips. tools to buy (1) amp gauge. if you are unfamilier with amp gauges make sure you get instruction book with gauge or you could burn yourself. Toubleshooting(1) Remove cover off minn kota trolling motor. black cover ontop of unit were the foot control wires go into.turn over foot control remove cover (2) check for corrosion. any exposed terminals should be cleaned.(3) go to your batteries and clean all connections. make sure the batteries are fully charged.(4) take amp gauge and test positive wire for amp draw as you tun on trollling motor and run it through all speeds. if batteries are in the rear away from trolling motor get a 2nd person to control trolling motor. if the trolling motor is more than a 12v system you will have more than one positive lead to test.GOAL. What your trying to find out is how many amps the trolling motor is really pulling. and at what speeds. under a load in the water and out of the water.how many more amps than the fuse raiting? newer trolling motors come with inline breakers not fuses so I'm guessing your using 30 amp fuses. again without more info i can only guess.
