Question about Boating
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.
I have the same propblem, however the motor is the same serial number is 4885815 for mine, it is a 5 spead 1.5 horsepower foot contoller if you find the information please share with me,
PS, on a sears craftsman almun I can take photos and aend to you if needed of motor,,

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