Question about MotorGuide Boating

Open Question

I have a motorguide 727 trolling motor. Having problems with my range of motion in the foot pedal

Instead of getting my full range of motion with my pedal I can get like 10 degrees turn one time and the next it's lik 120 degrees but never the same everytime I use it. It usually doesn't hold either when I have my foot on the pedal to hold my position. It seems like its slipping somewhere in the shaft. What do I do To fix this?

SOURCE: Trolling motor will not spin with out being turned by hand.

This may sound really dumb but it's worth a shot. I bought a trolling motor and it did the same thing as yours. I put up with it until I broke a prop blade. When I was changing the prop I discovered about fifty feet of monofilament fishing line wrapped around the shaft, partially melted, hidden by the prop hub. Once removed, it worked fine. Hey, try it, can't hurt.

SOURCE: Replacement of motorguide trolling motor prop

Motor Guide hubs come in two different sizes - 3" and 3.5". The 3" size is more for older and lower thrust models. Newer units use the 3.5. The size differences are between manufacturers too. MinnKota's are a little bigger. If you order a new prop, the only issue may be the depth of the prop. I had to use a longer prop nut wrench to tighten the Hydrilla Hacker I purchased.

SOURCE: trolling motor doesnt work?

Most trolling motors have in-line breakers, I would start there & see if one went bad, then check the wiring under the foot pedal for broken or corroded contacts, then you will have to trace wires & make sure everything is in order starting at the trolling motor plug.

SOURCE: recently purchased a used 74# Maxxum 24 volt

sound like either voltage drop or hi resistance from cables... if you test 24v at the plug then resistance is the problem and may have to rewire to a 6ga wire to carry the load, pretty simple just hook the new cable to the old one and SLOWLY pull it thru, help may be required because you dont want to loose it half way.....hope this helps...GL

SOURCE: Foot pedal on Motorguide is out of time with steering...

There should be a couple of allen screws on the shaft that you can loosen, which should allow you to swing the motor head in the direction you want it to be pointing for the desired pedal position. Tighten and carry on.

My motorguide x15 trolling motorjust wants to spin around .. it has a remote foot control


Define 'wants to spin around'?

The propeller motor is supposed to spin around :>)

If the whole motor unit is spinning around you need to clamp the motor stem.

For factory support, you can get that from the website.

My trolling motor stopped working suddenly. It is a 96 motorguide 56. It is completely charged. What else do I check. I check 5 fuses by the battery as well.


First you need to check to see if power is getting to the motor. If power is not getting to the motor, then check the battery. If you are getting power to the motor, then troubleshoot starting with checking to see if power is getting to the foot pedal. From there check the switches, and make sure they all have power. If they do, then most likely it is the brushes which could be worn on the powerhead itself.

Using an ammeter check for current draw and compare that with specs to determine if your draw is excessive. If motor has ever overheated and some of the windings have had the insulation burn off you will have a motor with less resistance and it will draw more current since less back emf is being generated.. Under those circumstances it can overheat and also blow existing fuses. Should that be the case you are looking at shopping for a new motor.

I have a motorguide trolling motor and the front


With the top off take the six screws out and lift the cable and gear out. Next put your foot pedal at mid position. Then make sure the motor is pointed forward and reinstall the slider gear and the six screws. Last put the top on and make sure the arrow indicator is pointing forward and thats it.
