    fsubobby - what was the cause of this problem. I am experiencing the same problem with my Minn Kota. It runs, but will only turn a fraction of an inch in each direction. Were gears and/or motor locked up?

Take off the top cover on the head of the motor and see if there are any restrictions to the movement of the cable. it may be the cable itself is rusted internally and may need replacement. call min kota on the 800 number on the motor for prices for any patrs you may need.

SOURCE: have a 3 hp. minn kota, prop wont turn, hard to

I have the same trolling motor and the same problem.
It seems the factory grease gets hard inside the motor where the shaft spins and acts like glue. I removed the long screws, carefully pulled the case apart, cleaned out the old grease (which was more like hard plastic) and packed the bearing area with lithium grease. I also lubricated the "O" rings and they were not damaged or brittle so I re-used them and put the unit back together being careful to tighten the screws properly. I have had no problems since. Also be sure to check the connections to the battery, for some reason that motor is very sensitive and wants a really good connection to the battery posts and sometimes all you need to do is re-tighten the connection if the motor does not run at all.
By the way, I contacted Minn Kota regarding the 3Hp and was told "hp" stands for high performance and the motor is not 3 Horsepower.

    I have a Minn Kota Fortrex 80" Shaft 24volt motor. The shaft appears to have a lot of play where it connects to the top of the aluminium bracket at the head. How can I repair this?


    what do you consider a lot of play
    1/2 inch, 1", .02",040" or what
    talk with a service agent for the equipment to get the exact amount of end play permissible or down load a workshop manual for the equipment

    How do you program extra Minn Kota® CoPilot Replacement Transmitters? I have lost my instructions. Thanx


    According to my user manual


    To learn the ID number of additional remotes, follow these steps:

    1.) Press and hold the LEARN button located on the side of the receiver (receiver will emit a continuous tone). A small blunt object must be used to depress the LEARN button (pen or screwdriver).

    1.) Press any button on the remote (receiver will beep 4 times confirming that it has "learned" the ID number of the remote and that the programming is valid and complete).
