Question about MotorGuide STANDARD MOTOR REPLACEMENT PARTS SWITCHES AND COMPONENTSDescript
When using my Pro Series 4300 (bought in 2003), it will stop in all speeds when trying to use it. It will run for a bit, then stop, run for a bit then stop. It doesn't matter if it is on continuous or not. Last year it was only doing it on the High speed of 5, this year it is cutting in and out when using it in all speeds. The duration of time does not seem to be an issue when its being used. It could start doing it 5 minutes after the 1st use of the day, or an hour later, but once it starts it doesn't stop. All the connections in the foot pedal are tight and clean. It does it bad enough that I can't use it on speed 5 at all. May run for 15 seconds on 5, then it quits. I don't know if it is the windings in the motor getting hot and cutting out or not. Any guidance would be appreciated, Thanks

I have a 4 speed with 48 lbs of thrust. On mine, 1 through 3 will move me out pretty well, however, 4th is similar to an overdrive gear in a car or truck and is meant more for maintaining a speed with less draw on the amps.
I certainly wouldn't want to take off with it. I suspect it is the same with your 5 speed. The boat needs to be up to speed and then those two gears will maintain it, with 5th being optimal as far as low draw in amperage.

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.

To hook up to 24 volts you need to join a positive cable from one battery to the source[motor or controller] and the the negative cable goes to the positive of the next of the next battery,then the negative [of battery #2] goes to ground,same for all 24 volt systems.If the slower speeds don't work then the rheostat in the accelerator handle could be at fault,but getting the 24 volts sorted out may fix everything.

Unless you are mechanically inclined, dont attempt this. Take the lower unit apart by removing the prop and removing the two bolts that hold the forward and aft housing to the center housing. Fwd being the cone shaped part. Pull the aft housing away from the motor so you can inspect the connections to the board that holds the brushes and the soldered wiring terminals. You should find the solder missing from at least one of the terminals that connects the wiring from the foot switch to the speed control windings inside the aft housing. Clean up the terminal and wiring and re-solder. Also re-flow the solder on the other terminals. Clean up the seals and the area where the seals meet the housing parts. Replace seals if damaged. Reassemble the lower unit and torque the bolts 45-50 in-lbs and no more otherwise you will fail the seals. This problem is due to a "cold" solder joint that creates a high resistance to elec current flow and heats enough to melt the solder. This is a result of poor quality control at the manufacturer. Good luck.
