Re: Simrad WP5000

Already have that looking for motor and control , especially control . Unit shuts down after running for a minute and a half. Wait 5 min,it will restart , then shut down again in 11/2 min. Any idea why.

Re: Simrad WP5000

That doc was the only one on the Simrad web site so finding more might be difficult.

My first guess based on the symptoms you report would be a heat related issue. Could be a component on the controller or the motor drawing too much power. Note, that is only a semi educated guess.

Have you tried running the motor directly from a 12V source for a few minutes to see if the motor is OK? Can you measure the current the motor is drawing?
