Question about Minn Kota Maxxum 55 Freshwater Bow Mount Trolling Motor

1 Answer

I need to replace a switch for my trolling motor but I dont know what voltage it is. Ive tried looking on the trolling motor and could not find any nameplate info that would tell me, and I dont have the owner's manual for it either. I have two batteries for the trolling motor but do not know if they are hooked in series or parallel.

Hi, If you picked the right header and it is a Maxxum 55 then it is a 12v motor. So you should hook up your batteries in parallel. This should Fixya!

    When troll motor is switch to mom and pedal engaged motor does not run, but when switched to con it runs in this mode. this problem just started, replaced switch and problem still the same.


    I'd be looking at a connection problem AFTER where the pedal connects to the unit. It doesn't take much of a "bridge" to cause an open at the chassis mount OR perhaps in the home unit itself. Since the unit runs when switched to "CON" we can eliminate a power supply issue. I'd be looking for an obvious physical problem such as a cold solder joint. Try cleaning the circuit board with silicone spray (SAFE FOR PLASTICS ONLY!!!) and see if that gives you any joy.

    Hope this helps and good luck!

    I had the same problem tonight. I wound up getting it off by appling a diagional pressure to the prop. That held the shaft screw. Then my Dad turned the wing nut with a neddle nose pliars conter clockwise and it came right off.

    My problem and probably yours too is once inside there is a pin holding the prop to the shaft that was broken. I don't know how to get the new pin back in since it is inside the prop with no access from the outside.

    We have boat that came with trolling motor, boat not used in 5 years what should we do to service the motor/minn kota 40at before we put in water we hooked to battery it spun and quit?? not sure what to...


    My guess is the motor has leaked water into the lower motor assy (behind the prop). and needs to be cleaned up and the brushes replaced.
    here's a schematic:
    Edge 40
    You can try this to check for water leakage:-
    1) disconnect from power supply
    2) remove the prop
    3) you will see 2 bolt heads behind where the prop was. Remove ONLY ONE of them for now.
    4) if you see the bolt (it's about 8" long) is covered in what looks to be blask, oily/watery or rusty condition then you know that you'll need to overhaul it.
    5) if it IS the motor assy, remove the other bolt and disassemble everything noting their location.
    6) I would recommend replacing the brushes Part# 188-052 and the seal kit 2883460.

    Lcx26hd screen gets black when minnkota trolling motor is on has got good picture when off


    Sounds like a simple voltage problem due to the current draw from the trolling motor. You will need to have a seperate isolated battery to run the trolling motor.

    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.

    Possible sticking foot control switch


    If you can undo the switch and it won't run any more, the it is the switch except for any other wiring short out of sight depending how that switch is hooked up. Strangely these devices should be designed to fail to safe. In your case some exception?

    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!

    Minn Kota Model 35 24lb thrust transom trolling motor not getting power


    It might help to view drawings at http://secure.northlandmarine.com/MinnkotaTillerSteering.html.
    The spring loaded items are brushes. They carry current to the rotor/shaft/impeller causing them to spin. I have two Model 35s. One failed after a couple hours of use. The other was given to me because it did not work. Both suffer from water getting into the motor and causing corrosion and sticking brushes. Someone on another site commented that this was a common problem for Minn Kota.
