Question about Humminbird 575 Fishfinder

2 Answers

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

I recently purchased a Motorguide Hyperdrive (Bill Dance Modle) bow mount 36 pound of thrust trolling motor on EBAY. The prop will not spin unless I start spinning it by hand. Once the prop is spun the controlls work fine until the motor comes to a dead stop. Then the prop needs to be spun by hand to get it started.
Can this problem be easily repaired? I cannot find a site that list replacement parts for this motor. Can you help?

This may sound really dumb but it's worth a shot. I bought a trolling motor and it did the same thing as yours. I put up with it until I broke a prop blade. When I was changing the prop I discovered about fifty feet of monofilament fishing line wrapped around the shaft, partially melted, hidden by the prop hub. Once removed, it worked fine. Hey, try it, can't hurt.

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.

Great white wont turn motor runs but wont turn


Do you mean you can hear the motor turn but the propellor doesn't turn?
Then check the break-pin of the propellor. It's a security device that will break when the propellor hits an object in the water...

My motorguide x15 trolling motorjust wants to spin around .. it has a remote foot control


Define 'wants to spin around'?

The propeller motor is supposed to spin around :>)

If the whole motor unit is spinning around you need to clamp the motor stem.

For factory support, you can get that from the website.

How to install trolling motor


If it is a bow mount model, then you basically need a bow mount bracket attached to the bow of your boat. If one didn't come with the outboard, you will have to buy one from the same manufacturer or an after-market one suitable for your boat. If in doubt, consult the local boating or marine store or wherever you purchased the motor or the bracket from.
