trolling motor problems

6 posts in this topic

Whenever I have power to my '06 MinnKota PD (with AP) the head constantly turns to the right. I assumed it was the foot pedal, but I replaced that and it's still doing it. Any idea what my problem is?

Scoot,

Since the motors only a year old it is still covered under warranty, you can bring it into scheels hardware and they should be able to get it fixed up, they do warranty work for minn kota. My brother just bought a new powerdrive and it was wired up backwards so forward was reverse, he brought it in and they had it done the next day.

The Hardware store works on them? I wounder when they started doing that. I used to work there and we never did then. Guess I will need to remember that if I have problems.

Yup, Not sure when the hardware store started working on mk's, I found out about it when I went into the big Scheels on 45th looking for a foot pedal a couple months ago and they told me I might have to go to the Scheels Hardware to get one since they do the work on minn kota's now...they probably started when they made the move.

Ya I suppose that might have added that when they moved. Of course I was 6 years ago when I worked there I suppose things could have changed since then grin.gif.

Thanks fellas. I ended up bringing it in to Bob's Trolling Motor repair in West Fargo. He took care of me right away. It was a bad compass.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
