Question about MotorGuide STANDARD MOTOR REPLACEMENT PARTS SWITCHES AND COMPONENTSDescript
I too had the same problem. This happens because of bad solder joints where the speed coils inside the lower unit connect to the wires from the selector switch. This "cold" solder joint has a high resistance to electrical current and therefore will become hot enough to meilt the solder. If you take the lower unit apart you will find solder laying on the bottom. Just clean up the terminal and wires and re-solder and it will be fine. I also recommend you re-flow the solder on all the other terminals as well. This is a quality control problem at the manufacturer.

My trolling motor has same problem, I replaced the (5) speed selector swith on the foot control and that solved nothing. I have the side selector switch (3 postiion) on order after testing with a meter
