Had it down about an hour fishing when I started it up made a grinding noise. Was stuck with about 5' out. Had to unmount from boat and set on back deck. About 5th trip out since new.

Yep...happened to me while all the way down. I was stuck. Fortunately I was able to take the top off and pull on the cable and manually pick it up. Minn Kota made it good.

Did it beep 3 times when you pushed the up button?

that stinks! I have 2 of the 12 footers on my boat. I need to really look and make sure I have the tools necessary to get that thing back up if that happens.

any suggestions on tools?

Yes mine did that when it was new. Took it to Proline in San Angelo and they fixed it under warranty. Never happened again in 4 years.

Happens when it gets stuck in rocks and you keep trying to bring it up. Use the motor to rock the boat a little to get it unstuck. It does beep 3 times when stuck.

I just loosened the 4 bolts that adjust the height on the bracket and slid it up. Used a crescent but I think it's 9/16".

You need to replace the spoil with a metal one and get reed of the heard plastic one.
