Wiring diagram for Die Hard 28 lbs thrust trolling motor

I was given a Die Hard trolling motor. The cover was taped on and when I opened it I found all the wires were unconnected. I connected it to a battery and the motor runs. There is a 3 way switch on the cover (Rev-Off- Forward). With the power connected, the motor does not run in Off. It does run in Forward and Reverse in the appropriate directions. There is a variable speed switch with a tiller handle with Off-High-Med-Low positions. The motor runs in what appears to be High even with the switch in the Off position. I have tried every wire combination but I can't get it to operate like it is supposed to. Any one have a copy of the wiring schematic for this motor? Again, it is a Die Hard 28 lbs thrust trolling motor. There is no label with a model or serial number. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave Haralson

It's probably a Minn kota with a die hard label. Call Minn kota and ask them.

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.

Burning out fuses on trolling motor at battery


not enough info. I went the the min kota website, they show four maxxum 80's at different voltages.is it a 12v 24v or larger? without a year model I'll have no reference to what wiring schematic Is the fuse connected inline with the trolling motor? what size amp fuse are you burning up? well I can give you some troubleshooting tips. tools to buy (1) amp gauge. if you are unfamilier with amp gauges make sure you get instruction book with gauge or you could burn yourself. Toubleshooting(1) Remove cover off minn kota trolling motor. black cover ontop of unit were the foot control wires go into.turn over foot control remove cover (2) check for corrosion. any exposed terminals should be cleaned.(3) go to your batteries and clean all connections. make sure the batteries are fully charged.(4) take amp gauge and test positive wire for amp draw as you tun on trollling motor and run it through all speeds. if batteries are in the rear away from trolling motor get a 2nd person to control trolling motor. if the trolling motor is more than a 12v system you will have more than one positive lead to test.GOAL. What your trying to find out is how many amps the trolling motor is really pulling. and at what speeds. under a load in the water and out of the water.how many more amps than the fuse raiting? newer trolling motors come with inline breakers not fuses so I'm guessing your using 30 amp fuses. again without more info i can only guess.

If you never did this before , I strongly advise take it to a local shop....if you don't seal it correctly, you will end up buying a new one for water getting in.... I fix alot of things on my boat but not the trolling motor....your choice....GL

Install


Click the link below, You do need to know your serial number thrust of motor and length of shaft as well how far away from trolling motor you will install your battery. This link is on Minn Kota Motors website under FAQ you can discuss with a service rep at Minn Kota please call 800-227-6433, but you will still need the information I asked earlier to come up with the answer.
