Question about Electrical Supplies
My guess is that the motor has leaked water and requires the 'extra' power of 24V to spin it up. To check for a water leak, first remove the prop.
Here is a schematic to get you started:
After the prop is off, you will see 2 or 4 bolt heads. You'll need a 5/16" socket. You'll want to remove only one of the outermost bolts. The bolts are about 8" long but only threaded for an inch or so. When you get it out you will be looking for a black, oily looking residue, whch would indicate water still in the motor unit. If you see rust or a white, powdery substance that would indicate there was water intrusion but has since dried out.
Give everything a good clean, replace all the o-rings, clean up the armature commutator (copper brush contact on the armature) and re-assemble.

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.
