Question about Minn Kota Maxxum 70 Freshwater Bow Mount Trolling Motor

Open Question

Minn Kota Bowmount powerdrive will not turn either direction

Just tried this trolling motor, it came with boat. The manual mentions resetting auto pilot but there is no auto pilot on this model that I can find. Foot pedal works to turn on and the increase power lever works. When you press left or right it does no move. The motor shaft is locked in the position it is supposed to be in for turning. All wires appear to be connected.

SOURCE: Minn Kota power drive trolling motor will not

It is the circuit board in the foot pedal. You will have to replace the whole foot pedal. This is a very poor design. The thin plastic which protects the contacts gets a little hole which allows water to enter and consequently the contacts corrode. Has happened to me two times in past four years. It might be OK for operation in a dirt-free water-free environment; but not under actual fishing conditions.

    TOOK THE BOLTS OUT OF MINN KOTA AND CANT GET THEM IN. 2 SHORT.


    Hi!
    Here's a schematic:
    Max 74 Bowmount
    Make sure the end housing #7has a small mark in it pointed to the bottom (towards the skeg). The bolts can be a pain to line up!
    Also make sure the armature is all the way forward it can go....past the brushes is the toughest part to get through and lined up. Keep it up, you'll get it!
    Best of luck
