    I have a Minn Kota PowerDrive that the shaft will turn by the foot pedal but the on off switch below the left and right controls will not turn on the motor. The last few days the motor would work sometimes by using the on switch and selecting the speed but it would just shut off randomly... then if I turned the switch off then on sometimes it would work again. Now it won't turn on at all... I have gone through and checked all the conections and there are no issues there....does anyone know if it is just the foot pedal and if replaced that would solve the problem or is there something else? I dont want to buy a new foot pedal if its something else. Any help would be awesome!

Mine did the same thing and i think that it could be the relay under the switch cause i had power when i directly touched both neg. and pos. so i would diffently take a look at that.

I have the same problem with a 765mx 36 thrust. I am going to check the power going to the motor with a meter. I think it may be the PC board has gone bad. I will write back with my findings

    Solved my problem, it was the main PC board that controlls the unit. I had it replaced for $147.00 Dollars. Fish Lectronics in Pequot Lakes, MN. The owner Jim Wentworth fixed it in about 15 minutes replacing the board. (218) 568-4806. Wentworth is the Trolling motor/Marine electronics guru in the Brainard Lakes area.

Built in transducer is not picking up/transferring depth to graph


I havew a Minn Kota trolling motor on a Z21 Ranger. Minn Kota has a built in (puck type) transducer on the motor. I have a lowrance 135x on the front. The lowrance will read the temp but will blink the depth. I switched out the depth finder with another 135x with the same results. I have a 522c gps unit networked together and mounted on the console that works fine. Any suggestions on the problem with the 135x?

Minn Kota Maxxum Trolling Motor


I had the same problems with my 70lb, my motor just quit while on the lake, took it to a minn kota service repair shop. I had two issues. One was the little magnet under the button on the foot pedal got recessed to far down, the tech told me if it happened again pop the button off and pull the magnet up some. Simple fix. I took it home put it back on the boat and nothing just a slight ticking noise heard from the pedal with no prop movement. So I thought maybe somethin was wrong with one of my batteries. Unhooked everything, tested both of them, all good. Even though there was hardly any corrosion, I clean everything, hooked it up and "WALLA"! Power! Problem solved, for now. Waitng to test again out on the lake

I had the same problem and found the oring/seal had let water into the motor. I believe it overheats or draws too many amps when wet? New seals fixed mine but I had to replace the bearing because it had been doing this for a while and the bearing had rusted out.

Reverse the polarity on the trolling motor by taking the trolling motor apart and turning ithe motor housingt 180 degrees and bolt it back up. The polarity will be straight then. I did the same thing when I pulled the armature back in.
