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.

Hello, You have several points to check. #1 check your wiring connections--- plug, plug socket, wiring connections internal of trolling motor, condition of wiring to battery, battery terminal connection & charge of battery. #2 borrow someones DVM (digital multimeter) and check the resistance of the speed control as you turn it without any wires connected to it. #3 if problem not found take 2 aspirin and E-mail me of test results "for further review".

Can i convert my bow mounted mini kota 40 to a transom mount?


No you cannot. Due to the hard mounted foot controls, it has to stay a bow mount.

Hello!
If you have a 55SC motor, it is hand controlled, here's a schematic:
55SC if this is your motor, I suspect the switch is gone, part # 2064023
If you have a bow mount FOOT control, here's your schematic:
Max 55 if this is it, I would first point to the foot pedal and/or the pcb control board. Best leave this one to an Authorized Service Center, here's the link with the list:
ASC Service Centers
...I hope it's just a switch for your sake ;)

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!
