trolling motor troubles

11 posts in this topic

I have a MnKotta that is 80lb and only two years old.

Last night is was acting strange -- even though the two main lights were off on the foot control it still turned on when it was out into the water.

at the end of the night it did not respond to the foot control at all and decided to keep turning in one direction until it wrapped up the cord.

I am on my second compass already -- is that what is wrong?

my battery light said 3 of 4.

Help?

The spinning sounds like a compass but the turning on and off sounds like a short some place. Check all your wiring.

My father had the same thing happen to his.Call the repair shop at scheels in fargo and explain to them. My fathers needed a new cord,the black one that looks like a slinky.I think it was about $100. Easy fix though. Good luck on the water.

Yeah -- tried to call scheels -- they were not really helpful -- they just said, "bring it in"

Marc, give D&D repair a call in DL, he may get you going quicker.

I think you're going to need to take it in... Motor Clinic does a good job, but I'd follow minneman's suggestion since you're no where near the cities.

What was actually wrong with your troller? Cord, compass or what?
