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.

SOURCE: I have a great white 67 lb thrust trolling motor .

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

SOURCE: Trolling motor stays on same speed no matter where

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.

Great white wont turn motor runs but wont turn


Do you mean you can hear the motor turn but the propellor doesn't turn?
Then check the break-pin of the propellor. It's a security device that will break when the propellor hits an object in the water...

Motorguide trolling motor


The first thing to check,(After making SURE the electricity is disconnected to the trolling-motor) remove the propeller and see if the shear-pin (Usually made of brass) in in place and not sheared/broken.
If it is, your local marine shop should be able to provide a new one. I always carry spares. If the pin is OK, the windings may have an electrical fault that would require a factory-repair.

Why does my motor guide 50 trolling motor fuse


It depends on how much current the trolling motor is supposed to draw when set to 5. If it's more than 40 amps, then you need a larger breaker. If it isn't more than 40 amps, then your current 40 amp breaker is weak and needs to be replaced.

Hey Chris,, you are starting a project (or wanting to) that is going to be problematic... It will be easier to go buy a new trolling motor with the money you are going to spend attempting this conversion... the newer trolling motors are so much more efficient...
