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.

    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
