Trolling motor grinding noise

5 posts in this topic

Recently my bow mount trolling motor has been making a loud grinding noise while running. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what is wrong or thoughts on how to fix it?

Thanks,

Trevor

I had a similar issue with my vantage and it turned out to be a loose magnet, it wasnt broken and was glued back on and put back together.

Could be the magnet or water is getting past the shaft seal.

alright so I took it apart today. Inside the casing there was a movable ceramic casing surrounding the magnets. One of these was cracked. I looked in the manual but I couldnt find a name for it. Anyone know what it's called or how easy it is to replace?

What is cracked is the magnet - and usually, no

matter the brand of motor, you will need a lower

unit assy with magnets attached. You cannot just

get another magnet, as these are matched N-S or S-N

poles (which must be matched for the motor to run).

If you are lucky enough to just have a magnet come

loose, it can be re-glued into place, but from what

you have described this is not the case. Sorry

for your loss.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
