Question about Minn Kota Maxxum 70 Freshwater Bow Mount Trolling Motor
Lost power to trolling motor. Fuses are good, and am getting power to the plug. I replaced the control board about 3 years ago, and the attenuator never worked right. How can I tell if power is making it to the control board?

it has an electrical connection problem... check all the connections on the pedal control. your loosing connection making it die and when you kick it it connects again... look for a frayed wire. or a corroded connnection.

Hello dtspins2. Your footswitch is stuck. Disconnect the DC. Remove the bottom of the foot control, check the wiring for insulation broken off and wires shorting out, and disconnect a wire(note color of wires) from switch, reconnect power to confirm motor don't run. Remove the switch and contact your local electrical supply store(may cost less) or marine store for replacement. Good Luck.

You need your serial number of the trolling motor, length of shaft, and thrust poundage.
or you could call Minn Kota direct and give them the same information at 800-227-6433.
