SOURCE: I have a Minn Kota Vector 55 lb thrust electric

Here are instructions to handle this:

First remove the prop nut. Then remove the prop. Once you remove the prop you will see two screws on the motor head like 5/16 screws approx. Remove those two screws. Once you remove those two screws you grab a hold of the back part of the motor and twist it off. When that is removed grab a hold of the shaft and gently pull out. Once you have removed the shaft look inside the housing and you will see two brushes inside. Unplug the brushes from the brush housing.

Use a dental pik to remove the real seals and then replacement should be self explanatory

You can get a tech manual from Mikes Reel repair. You can also get schematics, replacement parts and instructions (how to) do anything you want (all for free) from their website. This is a great place for Minn Kota assistance if you are doing the work yourself.

Here is a link to their website:

If you tell me what year the motor is, I can send you what you need? Use the comment or reply link next to your original question posted on Fixya to send me that information and I will send you instructions on the bolts that you have questions on and other relevant information

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.

    Here is a picture of the wire connection for 24 volt. Compare to yours is it correct? If it is, I wish you listed make and model I could of sent you the right picture diagram of you motor. Use this picture as a starting point. Test the wires through the motor testing for 24 volts. Again if I knew make and model I could show you exactly were. Last if voltage is correct all the way through. The motor is the last thing to tear down. If the brushes or armeture is damaged in anyway, or manufactured wrong, it would lead to power loss.

    Minnkota maxxum 70 has half the thrust is had before

    Sounds like a bad connection somewhere. I would take it to a authorized dealer for repair if it's still under warranty. Can get a bit tricky to repair yourself unless you're comfortable with soldering.
