Minn Kota Model 35 24lb thrust transom trolling motor not getting power

My wife got her fishing line tangled in the trolling motor. I took off the prop and removed all line. Now the motor is not getting power. I am not sure if these are related. If you have any ideas on how to get power back let me know. I did hook it up to my car battery to see if it would even spin a little and it did nothing. I also hooked up my backup motor to the battery so I know it is not that. Let me know.

It might help to view drawings at http://secure.northlandmarine.com/MinnkotaTillerSteering.html.
The spring loaded items are brushes. They carry current to the rotor/shaft/impeller causing them to spin. I have two Model 35s. One failed after a couple hours of use. The other was given to me because it did not work. Both suffer from water getting into the motor and causing corrosion and sticking brushes. Someone on another site commented that this was a common problem for Minn Kota.

I had the same problem on mine. It would work but lose power and then stop all together. You could tap the base of the motor and it would start but I ended up breaking it down and it had alot of moisture inside the motor. I dried it out. I took a wire brush on a dremmel and went over the carbon brushes. Sprayed a little WD-40 into it and it worked great for about a month then did the same thing. I guess I need to replace the rubber O rings..

I have a used Minn Kota Model 35 24lb thrust transom trolling motor with a s/s prop how do I change the prop to a Weedless Wedge Prop, Model MKP6? there is a small pin that goes through, do I drill it out or what, I need help

I believe i had the same issue and i had to fully take it apart. but the problem with doing that is you have a spring type of thing inside the motor. if you pull the motor apart anymore and are not paying attention it will fly out and it took me hours to get it back together

    I have to say that this should be your first response to the problem.

    As for fixing, you need to make the decision if what the repair cost would be and shipping over a new unit, due to how much use and it's age. Warranty.


    Our customer service representatives are available Monday - Friday between 7:00am - 4:30pm CST
    at 800-227-6433. If you are calling to order parts, please have the 11-character serial number from your product, specific part numbers, and credit card information available. This will help expedite your call and allow us to provide you with the best customer service possible. You can reference the parts list located in your manual to identify the specific part numbers.


    Now if you just plan on getting a new one, you can remove the top cover, and if you have a Muli-Meter and know how to use it.

    You can check to see if power is going to the switch, you can check the switch, you can check to see if the throttle is sending power to the lower unit.

    If the problem lies in the lower unit it's likely it needs to be sent in.

    I have the same motor.That happened to me also luckily I only had a tangle of line I picked up in the weeds.Start by pulling off your prop and checking for something tangled around the shaft.If that is not the case,pull the front case off by removing the two bolts[they should be 10mm] and make shure nothing made its way into the lower unit.If all looks well reassemble and see if you can turn the prop shaft by hand if it turns freely with no noise try to run it.If it doesnt turn or makes a lot of noise chanses arethe electrodes that make the prop turn are out of place.If that is the case get back to me and I can take you step by step in resetting the electrodes.Good Luck.

    I have a Motor Guide Brute 767, 67 lb thrust 24 volt trolling motor. It will only run at about half speed even with new batteries.


    I believe you may have a bad low voltage circuit board problem. I do not think they make the board any longer but you may be able to convert it to work by bypassing the circuit board. I am working on one now.

    How to remove the prop


    there is a plastic nut that screws onto the prop shaft and needs to be unscrewed. there is also a metal pin that goes through the shaft that needs to be in place and in the right position when you replace the prop. make sure you clear out any fishing line etc that may have collected behind it when you change props.sually recommend you put a little clear silicone grease on the parts as you assemble them as well.ake sure you disconnect the power leads from the battery while your doing this to avoid injury.

    MY MINN KOTA 30LB THRUST MOTOR HAS DEVELOPED A NOISE IN THE LOWER UNIT LIKE A LOOSE BEARING.IT SEEMS TO BE WORSE IN REVERSE


    Hi!
    Here is a schematic for your motor:
    Endura 30
    It sounds like the motor has leaked water into it and wil need to be cleaned up, have the brushes, seal kit and bearings replaced.
    Best of luck!
