Motorguide Trolling motor has low thrust in all five speeds

My 2005 Motorguide 54 pound thruster will operate in all 5 speeds; however, it does not have appropriate thrust power at all speeds. Motor seems weak especially in speeds 4 and 5. Battery is okay, wiring is clean at battery (no corosion) and the motor's cannon plug is clean. Why is thrust weak?

I have a 4 speed with 48 lbs of thrust. On mine, 1 through 3 will move me out pretty well, however, 4th is similar to an overdrive gear in a car or truck and is meant more for maintaining a speed with less draw on the amps.

I certainly wouldn't want to take off with it. I suspect it is the same with your 5 speed. The boat needs to be up to speed and then those two gears will maintain it, with 5th being optimal as far as low draw in amperage.

Ihave a motorguide brute hyper 67 trolling motor can't get the 24 volts to work motor runs on 12 and 24 volts and all five speeds but don't have the thrust of 24 volts


This is most often caused by a faulty 24 Volt, section, (usually damaged output semiconductors, or the drive?) in the speed controller, fault, the only "Fix" is replacement. Simply obtain the entire speed controller and replace it "En Bloc" as it were. You will need to also obtain a service manual so you can disassemble it and obtain the parts numbers for the replacement parts.Otherwise take it to a professional and ask for a "Quote" as to prospective costings and go from there.

I nned a motorguide 46 lb. thrust electric foot controlled trolling motor manual


Go to http://www.boats.net. Let me ask you a question, is it 5 speed? And if so have you lost some or all speeds but 5?. I so, them you need to take the lower unit apart and you will find solder laying in the bottom. You will see that the speed control coil wires at one if the terminals on the brush board has no solder. Clean it up along with the wires so that you see copper and re-solder. This is due to poor quality control on soldering at the manufacturer. When you re-assemble tighten the bolt 45-50 in-lbs only. No more.

Hey Chris,, you are starting a project (or wanting to) that is going to be problematic... It will be easier to go buy a new trolling motor with the money you are going to spend attempting this conversion... the newer trolling motors are so much more efficient...
