put the motor in the water and ensure that the propeller is at the rear. On the head of the unit (where the direction indicator is) push down and turn the round plastic plate (this plate has the direction indicator on it) clockwise until the direction indicator mark (mine is blue and is about one inch long) is in line with the alignment bar on the non-moveable part on the head.

With the top off take the six screws out and lift the cable and gear out. Next put your foot pedal at mid position. Then make sure the motor is pointed forward and reinstall the slider gear and the six screws. Last put the top on and make sure the arrow indicator is pointing forward and thats it.

Lot of interference with unit transducer mounted on trolling motor when trolling motor is being used. Then clears up when not used.


Some how you have Radio Interference conflicting with your unit. The RF as it is called, may be coming from the engine. Try to connect to an INDEPENDENT power supply for the Eagle and not the same source your trolling motor. You seem to be getting line interference.

Trolling motor doesnt work?


Most trolling motors have in-line breakers, I would start there & see if one went bad, then check the wiring under the foot pedal for broken or corroded contacts, then you will have to trace wires & make sure everything is in order starting at the trolling motor plug.

Trolling motor will not spin with out being turned by hand.


Take the prop off and make sure the pin that goes through the shaft is in place. The prop could also not be sitting on the pin proper.
