SOURCE: did Minn Kota make the diehard 20 lbthrust

I would say that the bearings have rusted solid , the humming is the motor trying to turn.

Dismantle the lower housing and inspect , the alternative is throw it out and buy a new one , and take care of it,.

Grinding noise when turning left


Wheel bearings, brake pads or head bearings. Check brakes first then wheel. The head bearing would make a grinding noise on both left and right turns.

Treadmill makes loud grinding sound when I run in the middle of the tread. it doesn't make the noise if I run on the left side.


1)you must LUBE the DECK BELT, inmediately, for to avoid the friction
2)LUBE the rollers bearing.too
3) See the main motor for bearing and repair the motor for bearint too.
4) If the problem persist you have worn deck belt, and replace.
God bless you

My minn kota endura 55 is three years old is making a grinding noise when in operation..


I had this problem with my MinnKota Endura 35. The gear teeth that turn the prop are off center and need to be realigned. You need to take it to a service depot as trying to open the casing yourself may do more damage. Plus when it it put back together you need to ensure that it is water tight again.

Cost me around $85 at the local marine mechanic...

Grinding noise when left turns are made


This could just be the abs, it does make a sound at times and really is nothing. But you may want to check outer tie rods and ball joints.

Minn kota trolling motor will turn to the rt. when i push the pedal down to turn to the left it goes half way and stops. the pedal will not go any further


Check for rocks or debris stuck in the pedal....
If not then pull the top cover on the motor and look at the pulley cable drum. Here's a schematic:

How do you operate the motor? I have no details as to how the motor operates. Its a minn kota trolling motor that mounts on the front of my boat. I need to know how to operate the foot peddle.


The pedal has generally four functions:
1) Forward and back on the pedal make the motor go left and right (push forward to turn the motor right, push back to turn it left)
2) Momentary power - the little 'button' towards the top will engage the motor as long as you press down on it.
3) Selector Swith - on the side of the foot pedeal there is a switch with the following settings Con - Off - Mom (Continuous - keeps the motor going all the time, Off - well it's off and Mom - will only go when you press the momentary button).
4) Speed select - the knob on the left controlls how fast the motor goes.

It takes some getting used to but offers tremendous control and hands free operation!
