Given wrong diagnosis

I chatted with a representative online and described my problem of my 45 lb trolling motor going to high speed in all speeds forward and reverse. He immediately indicated it was the switch. I ordered one, replaced it and it didn’t fix the issue. Looking at forums I found out it was the speed coil. Not as easy to replace. I’ve put the motor up for sale as is and have ordered another brand to replace the newport one.

8 position switch

Replaced the 8!position switch, motor still does not work right. It’s 4 yrs old but only used the trolling motor 30-40 times. Would not waste my money again on Newport Vessel trolling motor

Not so easy

I was told by CS that the part is easy to replace. Unclip a few wires and reclip them on to the new speed control and your good to go. My *ss!!! There's 2 wires that you can jut pull off, the other 4 wires you have to remove the screw and nut inorder to "unclip" those 4 wires. Now clip the wires back on and attempt to screw and nut the wires tight. Us older folks just can't deal with the small screws and nuts. Called my son, waiting for him to drive up. Unit came from the factory with a bad speed control. 86lb thrust trolling motor should have been replaced not sent a replacement part. Very Disappointed!!!

i still have the same problem 250$ later

on your website it says "If your trolling motor has lost one or more speeds in forward or reverse, you may need to replace your Speed Switch (Part # 8 in your Owners Manual)" and also says "A Speed Switch can be damaged by using the motor without your circuit breaker. When a propeller has debris caught in it, the motor requests more power from the battery to produce the same speeds. Without your circuit breaker to protect your motor, the increased power can damage the speed switch!" well i ordered both and installed them and still have the same issue! i only get speed 5 forward and speed 3 reverse

customer response

Old switch that I had thrown away had letters on it indicating where each wire went. New switch had no letters. I was at the lake to replace switch and called to have someone walk me thru where each of the wires were to go. A simple request. Was told that noone could do that. They would send me a diagram to my email which was over an hour away. 2 day fishing trip ruined and cancelled! Very poor response!

Speed switch

In the end it was very good but it was a slow start. The directions that came with the switch which was different from the one pictured in the add were useless to me telling me to take a picture of something I had already taken apart. The 1st person I spoke with just wasn't very knowledgeable but when I called back I reached someone very knowledgeable who quickly emailed the information I needed to put everything back together.

Needed a switch for my motor. The gentleman I talked with was very helpful. Received the switch and a few pins shortly. Very nice conversation about other products. Thanks and because of his help and attitude, I'll do more business with you folks.

Good customer service but I can't find my receipt so I hoped that Newport would send me a speed coil so I don't have to buy a brand new motor but don't think they will? I love this motor and would probably buy the same one if I have to
