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.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
