Turn off the motor, and grab the prop and see if you can pull if away from the housing, if it moves more that about 1/16, you have a problem in the motor housing, maybe bad bushings or contacts.

Take the top cover off and check for a wiring problem. You may have one that is loose and isn't
making connection when motor is in the water. I'd guess it is your red (hot) wire).

probably an endura 50 would be a better fit for a potoon boat. assuming the boat is normal size. if its a smaller one then this motor might work just fine. give it a try and see if it moves you about fast enough for your taste.

Best way to replace battery clips, also forgot to lable, does it matter which is black or red ?, If so how can I determine which is negative and positive ?


OK, I'm not 100 % positive on this, but,, I think the worst that could happen is the motor will run backwards. Sometimes the wire has 1 side with little lines on it, and the other is plain, the lines would be the negative side. The clips are easy, Pull the rubber handle over the wire, after you figure out which is which, and put the insulation of the wire into the crimp and crimp it, put the wire into the screw. Pull down the rubber handle, you're all set. To test the polarity, try a dead battery, if anything is going to happen, it won't be so bad. Good luck.

How long will a 100 amp battery run a 30 motor att 2 speed ?


The Endura 30 draws 30 amps at the highest setting (5), so it'll run 100/30 - 3.33 hours with a fully charged 100AH battery. At setting (4), it only draws 15 amps, so it'll run 100/15 = 6.6 hours. At the lowest setting, it draws 3 amps, and should run 33 hours.

My endura 30 lower unit was filled with water and mud/rust. It was working all speeds before I opened it up. I had to hit the lower unit sometimes to get it to spin. The armature contacts have many pits,...


You *may* be able to save the armature (about $45) by using some fine emory cloth to buff it back to life.
The brushes, seal kit, bearing, etc are about a $35-$40 bill. To have it done in-shop would be approx. $80 with labour.
Here's a schematic:

Good luck in your repair!

MinnKota Endura 50 Runs only in high speed in forward and reverse


the coil pack is likely bad especially since you changed the switch. call minkota and get the bench tast info (very simple) and then order and replace the coil pack about 26 dollars. be very careful how you put the magnet assembly back together and mark the position of the case on the outside before disassembly. order a new seal kit and use locktite on the shaft again when reassemling to seal the shaft tube for water. dont run motor uout of the water much as it uses the water to cool the shaft and you can damage the seals. good luck.

How does the minn kota 65 all terrain run on 24


You should only run the motor with a 24v battery or two 12v batters 'jumped' out. To jump the two batteries, connect the positive on one batter to the negative on the other battery and hook the trolling motor battery cables up to positive and negative terminals that are NOT jumped out as you would normally. Don't run this with 12v as you will have serious problems if you do. They do not make a 65lb thrust in 12v - too much pound thrust to run off of 12v.

Minn Kota Trolling Motor will not run


Hi!
For starters, here is a schematic:
Endura 30
Check to see if there is appropriate voltage getting to the switch (with an ohm meter).
You can (please do this carefully) disconnect the battery positive and negative as well as the motor red and motor black wires and connect the Batt positive to the motor red and the Batt negative to the motor black. If the motor runs, the switch is faulty. If it doesn't then I suspect the motor needs looking at.
Best of luck!

When i turn the control to the off position, it keeps running.


Hello james gray. Your description is for a hand control type motor with the control knob on the handle. Disconnect the power to the motor. Carefully disassemble the handel making note of procedures. Check your wiring to control. It would be helpful to use a multimeter to check the voltage on the wiring connections. This should confirm the wiring shorting or most likely a bad switch. The switch could be found from a local electrical supply store or a marine store.
