Question about Minn Kota Endura 30 Freshwater Transom Mount Trolling Motor

1 Answer

No movement or spinning of motor when turned on

I tried two separate - fully charged batteries; a marine battery and a car battery and still I am unable to get any life out of the trolling motor. I do not hear any humming from the unit nor movement on the prop when I cycle it on (forward or reverse). I tried manually rotating the prop, it does not appear to be stuck or jammed. The motor is relatively new, does not even have any scratches or chips on the bumper fin on the lower unit nor any dings on the props. Only used a dozen or so times. I am not the original purchaser, so I do not believe I have any access to the warranty. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Not quite the same problem:
    I have a buddy who has an auto pilot minnekota (Sorry - don't know the model) and he says the motor will not move when the directional foot pedal is pressed. Motor runs fine, but is in a "manual" state right now. Sorry to be vague, but that's about all I can offer. Any ideas?

One way to help isolate the problem is to turn the motor to an "on" position. Using a voltmeter, using the leads that go to the battery, test for continuity. If none, your problem is with the motor itself or the wiring inside the unit. Hopefully, you just have a loose connection. If the motor becomes warm or hot when connected to a charged battery while in "on" position, the motor is the problem.

Trimmer line is spinning but slowly, like it has lost power.


Sounds like just what you said "it's lost power" Are you sure the battery is fully charged? Try another battery if you have one. There is no clutch to slip on this type trimmer. It's got to be either the battery is not putting out enough to turn the motor or the motor itself is bad.

Spin Backward? that's not good. Would check the battery connections. If backward- you may have other problems associated with backward battery connections and ignition systems. If it's just an optical illusion- you should try to bridge the starter solenoid with a jumper to the big terminals and see if the starter is really bad or just a low battery. If your battery is down, your charge system on the motor may be giving you trouble.

Your starter when sitting on the bench and directly hit with 12 volts should jump substantially with the torque. If it just spins like a fan motor- it's shot.

If jumping the solenoid makes it work, thats the problem. But clean or replace the cable ends on the bat and solenoid first.

Just a note: you should be able to pull start that motor by wrapping a noted rope round the pulley on top of the flywheel. If you ever get stuck again. Just watch where the knotted end of the rope goes.

I have an electric friction motor on trike, For more distance I am adding a second battery (12v 18ah) in parallel. Need to put switch in line so one battery runs at a time. Then I know it is time to go...


Hi Chrome

I'd use pre-made automotive battery cables as they'll easily handle the amperage output as well as already having the ends factory installed.

With your battery selector switch, you'll be able to charge one batt at a time.

You'll need a ground from one battery to the switch and a common ground cable connecting the ground of batt 1 to the ground of batt 2 to make this work. Each HOT lead from the batts goes to the switch.

Hope this helps.

Minn Kota riptide ST green ready light will not turn on. It started flickering and will not turn on now. Pressed the battery test button and it shows that the batteries are fully charged. HELP!!!


Does the unit work without the auto pilot? Sounds like the auto pilot or the reciever is not functioning correctly.
Check and make sure the unit is grounded properly, you may need to run a test ground wire from the battery to the motor istelf to check this.
This is simple to do and takes 15 minutes. Starting in the battery compartment feed cable into the split-loom and continue feeding until reaching the control panel. Pull an extra 5 foot of cable and open dry hatch in rear by motor feed cable around and out to motor connections., Good time to check any circuit breakers
Try cycling the auto pilot though the modes.
there are 3 modes
to cycle through each mode
hold down the + and - key for 2 seconds
this cycles you to the next mode. Last but not least, try turning the unit on and spinning the prop by hand to see if it takes off, the motor migt be bound up slightly or have a bad spot on the brushes.

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.

Is battery included?


The 12 volt battery required is sold separate. You will have to remove the battery for charging...charger not included, It is possible to have the battery wired in such a way that it can re-charge from the alternator of the main engine.
