Marcum customer service

5 posts in this topic

Have one of the first LX-3. Purchased in 2002. Had what seemed a bad ducer go -- not as much "ping ping" from the ducer. Maybe 12-15 trips with it. Thought for sure it was the ducer, and went to many places looking for replacement ducer and no luck,,, good thing,, took it to Thorne Bros in Fridley and hooked up the unit to good ducer, same problem.

Bad head unit. Sent it in to Marcum in Anoka and in 2 weeks a fixed unit good as new with no bill that was sent to me.

That's some customer service, and will lean towards them in the future.

Same exact thing happened to me and my roomate. We both bought LX-3's four years ago. His unit went out after sitting dormant over the summer last year. Mine went out this year. It must be pretty common because I called Marcum and the guy knew what it was right away. I also figured it out when I put a different transducer on and neither mine or my roomates worked with my unit but they both worked with my roomates unit. I dropped mine off in Anoka at the repair center and they sent it to my house in four days. Very good customer service.

Lucky they got it done....my ears hurt from the Vex. humming.

I know what you mean about the noise grin.gif LOVE my LX5 . Most time all you have to do is open up the Vex and lube the brushes and the noise will subside.

I picked up another LX-3 on Dec. 8. The signal was weak so I put the transducer from my other one on it and it worked fine. Called Marcum on Dec. 10 and they sent out a new transducer. Tested it on Dec. 11 but it was still weak. I called Marcum back and said the new transducer didn't help and I needed it for an LOW trip on the 14th. He said bring it in. I went up there on Dec. 12 and he swapped the power head. It saved the trip for my son and I since most of our fish were caught jigging. Fantastic customer service.

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
