Motor question


fishman50

Question

I've got a Minnkota trolling motor (2002). My problem is this: I have the foot pedal, but I can only get the motor to turn one way. So, when I push the foot pedal right, the motor will turn right. But when I push the pedal left, the motor won't turn.
Any ideas what to do? It's such a pain trying to fish the wind and have to keep using my hand to push the motor.
Thanks for your help!!

A 2002 should still be under warranty. If you sent in your registration card take it to a repair shop. If you didn't send the card in, you will need your receipt. Most of them have three year warranties.

I had the same problem on an intermittant basis.....

Took pedal apart and cleaned similar to above post....A-OK now.

I also have had some problems with the foot pedal connection harness not giving good contact......motor would change directions but prop wouldn't spin. Cleaned up the contacts and everythings been working great for a while now.

Mine will do that when the battery is real low. Itr happened to me a few years ago and had to replace the control board on the foot control.

Mine had a similar problem earlier this summer. I couldn't adjust speeds.

I ended up taking the pedal apart. Then I took Q-tips soaked in IPA and cleaned all the metal connection points. That seemed to work. Otherwise check to see if there is small rocks or something that would prohibit you from getting a good conection.

I also suggest keeping the foot pedal in a dry compartment when not in use. It can only help even though the boards are coated in silicone.

I'd try that first because a new pedal runs almost as much as the entire motor itself.

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.

      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
