Minn Kota Powerdrive problem

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know what would cause a Powerdrive (about a year or two old) to all-of-a-sudden only run at full speed? It will turn left and right, but only runswide open no matter the setting on the pedal. I tried the neighbors foot pedal and that made no difference. It has been fairly babied, but does sit out in the elements for periods of time.

Probably the motherboard in the trolling motor itself and not the foot pedal.

Still under warranty! Bring it in to Fishlectronics in Fridley.. they have always been great for me.

Minnkota is very good about standing behind its stuff. Find a service and repair place and get it in there. Easy fix. grin.gif

SAY I'M A SERVICE CENTER. AND JUST GOT DONE WITH A MOTOR THAT HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. IT IS THE MAIN CONTROL BOARD. CHECK THE SERIAL NUMBER TO SEE IF UNDER WARRANTY.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.
