Trolling Moter Problem

Recommended Posts

I have a 1995, 50 lb. thrust foot control trolling motor, Motor Guide model that I have a problem with. On the foot control there is a wheel on the side that you rotate to change speeds. The wheel is getting harder and harder to turn. I see no way to adjust it.

Any thoughts as to what is causing it and how to fix it?

I talked to the guys at Springfield. They said it needed a new switch-a $15 part.

Beats buying a new motor.

Just an update in case others ever have a similar problem. Installed the new switch last week and that fixed the problem. Also seems to have more power. Fairly simple too install.

Thanks for the tip Dutch.
