The breaker could be breaking at less than its rated amps. The motor could have some fishing line behind the propellor. On the lower 4 speeds you have a resistor wire (its in the motor housing) in the circut, 5 hooks the battery direct to the motor and draws the highest amps. See if you can use a clamp meter to measure the amps the motor is drawing.

If it just blowing the fuse at one speed or top speed it could be a short in the speed control or the negative cable is dirty. clean up the terminals and try again.

Chances are that your element is drawing too much current. Check the manufacturer's website to make sure that you have the correct size breaker installed. Low water flow could also affect this, so make sure all of your baskets and filters are clean and clear.

SOURCE: I have a Minn Kota Endura 30, transom mount.

There is kind of a collar on the lower side of the head where the head connects to the shaft. There is a single bolt that runs right thru the shaft at this location, remove it. Rotate the head 180 degrees and re-install the bolt. 5 minute job.

I want to mount my endurac2 on the back of my boat but the handle an the prop are in the same direction is it possible to turn one or the other

Not entirely sure with your model but it is possible to take the head off (where the handle is) and spin that 180 degrees. You may also check an aftermarket prop that has opposite blade direction. So where normally it's on the front of the boat, pulling through water it's now pushing the water when moving to back of boat. Shouldn't be hard to locate

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

probably an endura 50 would be a better fit for a potoon boat. assuming the boat is normal size. if its a smaller one then this motor might work just fine. give it a try and see if it moves you about fast enough for your taste.

My endura 30 lower unit was filled with water and mud/rust. It was working all speeds before I opened it up. I had to hit the lower unit sometimes to get it to spin. The armature contacts have many pits,...

You *may* be able to save the armature (about $45) by using some fine emory cloth to buff it back to life.
The brushes, seal kit, bearing, etc are about a $35-$40 bill. To have it done in-shop would be approx. $80 with labour.
Here's a schematic:

Good luck in your repair!

MinnKota Endura 50 Runs only in high speed in forward and reverse

the coil pack is likely bad especially since you changed the switch. call minkota and get the bench tast info (very simple) and then order and replace the coil pack about 26 dollars. be very careful how you put the magnet assembly back together and mark the position of the case on the outside before disassembly. order a new seal kit and use locktite on the shaft again when reassemling to seal the shaft tube for water. dont run motor uout of the water much as it uses the water to cool the shaft and you can damage the seals. good luck.
