Motor Guide troller problem

4 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. Just picked up a used 105lbs. Motor Guide troller. I'm running it on 3 fleet farm batteries and getting 36volts. I'm getting power to the light and I can hear it turn on. But the propeller is not spinning. Is the motor stuck or something? Anybody know how to fix this problem??? Thanks again.

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

What's the history on the trolling motor? Purchased new?

If you're certain you've got it wired correctly (and it sounds like you do), and it's new I'd guess something internal to the trolling motor.

Marine man thanks for the quick response. This trolling motor is used. I'm a noobie to this trolling motor stuff. But when I bought the used troller I don't recall the propeller moving freely or not. Didn't know what to look for until I bought the thing and read some things online to make sure the propeller moved freely. So now it's not moving freely. Not sure about the history of the motor. Is it pretty hard to take the troller apart or should I just go get it repaired? I do has some mechanical and technical skills but not sure if I want to take the chance of taking it apart and damaging it some more. Any clues on how much it will cost? Thanks again.

I think you're best off taking it to Motor Clinic in Bloomington and have them take a look at it instead of taking it apart yourself.

I have no idea what it may cost.
