Minn Kota model 824

2 posts in this topic

Anyone ever experience this with a Minn Kota model 824.

Unit was hooked to two 12 volt deep cycle batteries and the plug was a three wire plug using the 24 volt and ground wire to power the trolling motor.

All of a sudden the motor stopped working. Eventually I discovered that motor would work when powered by 12 volts but will not work when powered by 24 volts. Unit is mounted on a Lund Pro V SE. Don't think this should make any difference but its additional information anyway. I have connected the motor directly to the batteries bypassing the boats wiring and motor will not run when powered with 24 volts but it will on 12 volts.

I'm stumped. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

It sounds like you've got a internal problem with the 24V system on the trolling motor.

Where are you located? I've heard Motor Clinic does good work on Minnkota Trolling Motors and might be able to help you out.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
