My motorguide x15 trolling motorjust wants to spin around .. it has a remote foot control

Define 'wants to spin around'?

The propeller motor is supposed to spin around :>)

If the whole motor unit is spinning around you need to clamp the motor stem.

For factory support, you can get that from the website.

I have a motorguide fw71 fb bow-mounted trolling motor which I believe is receiving a short somewhere. I have the batteries hooked up right with a 30amp breaker going to each and often when I troll on...

Using an ammeter check for current draw and compare that with specs to determine if your draw is excessive. If motor has ever overheated and some of the windings have had the insulation burn off you will have a motor with less resistance and it will draw more current since less back emf is being generated.. Under those circumstances it can overheat and also blow existing fuses. Should that be the case you are looking at shopping for a new motor.
