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.

Sounds like it's heating up. Check your wire size. For 24 volt: 6 guage wire is reccommended - that's pretty heavy. Also check the wiring of your batteries. It's easy to get mixed up if you have 24 or 36 volt system. One more thing...check the fuse size to make sure that is correct. Hope this helps. Brian

I just recently had a simialr problem. No speed control and motor only ran at 100. I talked to the minn kota tech rep and sent him my control board and he said it had a bad potentiometer...however, I had to buy a control board to fix the problem ($215). Hate to say it but sounds like you may need a new control board.
