Have you checked the breaker back at the battery? Battery connections? Both switches on foot pedal? Does prop turn easily by hand? Actually, there are 3 switches on the pedal. My Edge 45 is only 3 years old, and not used a lot. With that said, I have already had to replace two of the three switches on the pedal. Im replacing my Edge with a Terrova next week!

Please let us know what you find wrong with it.

Check the switch on the side of the pedal. It says MOM-OFF-CON. Mom is momentary. Thats where you want the switch to rest. It allows you to press the pedal toe button and power the motor. The dial side is 0-10. Start out with it on around 6-7. Thats a decent power. 10 is overkill. 1-4 is too weak on an edge 45.
