Question about Humminbird 575 Fishfinder

2 Answers

Trolling motor will not spin with out being turned by hand.

I recently purchased a Motorguide Hyperdrive (Bill Dance Modle) bow mount 36 pound of thrust trolling motor on EBAY. The prop will not spin unless I start spinning it by hand. Once the prop is spun the controlls work fine until the motor comes to a dead stop. Then the prop needs to be spun by hand to get it started.
Can this problem be easily repaired? I cannot find a site that list replacement parts for this motor. Can you help?

This may sound really dumb but it's worth a shot. I bought a trolling motor and it did the same thing as yours. I put up with it until I broke a prop blade. When I was changing the prop I discovered about fifty feet of monofilament fishing line wrapped around the shaft, partially melted, hidden by the prop hub. Once removed, it worked fine. Hey, try it, can't hurt.

Take the prop off and make sure the pin that goes through the shaft is in place. The prop could also not be sitting on the pin proper.

Do you mean you can hear the motor turn but the propellor doesn't turn?
Then check the break-pin of the propellor. It's a security device that will break when the propellor hits an object in the water...

Replacement of motorguide trolling motor prop


Motor Guide hubs come in two different sizes - 3" and 3.5". The 3" size is more for older and lower thrust models. Newer units use the 3.5. The size differences are between manufacturers too. MinnKota's are a little bigger. If you order a new prop, the only issue may be the depth of the prop. I had to use a longer prop nut wrench to tighten the Hydrilla Hacker I purchased.
