If everthing else is hooked up properly and the battery connections are tight i would suspect a loose connection in either the plug or the receptacle. anytime an electrical connection heats up it usually means there is a loose connection or too many amps running through it than what its designed for. remember trolling motors should not be run out of the water for more than 30 seconds as they use the water to cool the output shaft at the prop. good trolling.

No Power


take the cover off to expose the connections and put a volt meter on the incoming battery terminals to see if you have 12 volts at the head. if you do then check the leads heading down to the motor to see if you have voltage there as well. if you dont you may have a bad switch. hopefully you just have a loose or undone connection. if you need to troubleshoot it farther call the 800 number on the head minn kota and their tech people will fax you info or walk you through the process.
