Prop spins slow on any speed on the foot pedal

I have a bow mount Minn kota power drive foot pedal unit that only spins slow on full power. Tried different batteries. Then I jumped the motor right to the battery and it worked fine. Figured it was the foot pedal. Replaced it and I still have the same problem. Help.....

There is a good chance that the control board is bad. This is a common problem with these units. I have replaced my control board twice. When the control board goes out, some function of the unit will not work correctly while other functions work fine. The first time mine went out, the prop motor would not work. The last time the board went out, the unit would only steer right.

    Sounds as if the motor has either bearings going bad and/or water has gotten in the housing washed the lubricants out. Motors do wear out eventually. I'm not sure if the brushes are replacible. Have you checked for any constrictions like fishing line? And also the contacts on the controller could have minor corrosion meaning take it apart if possible and clean with steel wool or a dremel.

    On a Minn Kota All Terrain trolling motor, what should the MOM/OFF/CON switch be set to when using the foot pedal manually?


    You should only use the MOM (or momentary) setting when using the push button the foot pedal. Con will just keep the motor running and your foot control will only allow for direction and speed!

    Minn Kota power drive trolling motor will not steer to the right **** huard


    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.

    Prop will not engage just beeps


    is it 12 or 24 Volt system and check to see if there is a com switch that has to be turned on and there should be a click (switch) wich activates and allows the prop to turn. and are you using a foot pedal or a wireless remote?
