    MotorGuide Trolling motor problem

 Anyone have any advice for troubleshooting a 82lb thrust motorguide tour trolling motor? The variable speed control only works on one speed? High By Pass works. Momentary works but only on high speed. The dial control isnt working? Any advice? Thanks John

   Potentiometer? from Ron  3/31/2003 5:30:00 PM
 It could be your potentiometer (speed control dial). Mine has failed twice and it does as you describe. On mine I could ever-so-slowly turn my speed control and get it to go to a slower speed when I hit a certain spot on the dial. If that's it, the part is about 25 bucks and you can install it yourself. Just take it off, solder the 4 wires to the new one and button it back up.

   could be electronics from tmrepairman (67.35.112.105)  4/1/2003 4:12:00 PM
 That motor comes with a two year warranty. You could have electronic problems, pot, or broken wire in top of head. If the electronics are bad I would take it to a Authorized service center for repair. If they need to change parts make sure they are the new upgrade parts. If you have to pay for the repair, remember that every repair a ASC Motorguide repairs, that repair is good for One Year Labor and Parts.
