After running my Ultrex and stopping it will not turn on again unless I repeatedly and rapidly depress the foot switch. Sometimes just raising the motor slightly will engage the motor. I was told I probably have a dead spot in my armature however the motor will always engage without issue from a dead stop when the spot lock is engaged or when I use the remote so I doubt this can be the issue. My guess is it may be the Clip Reed or the Control/Sensor board. Anyone have any ideas?

I will bet the reed switch needs a slight adjustment.

Mine did the same thing.. Stomped it like I was killing cockroaches..

Flip the pedal over.. Find reed switch.. (tiny cylindrical magnetic switch with two small wires coming out the bottom..) Right under button of course..

Take a pointy knife blade or awl and slide the switch up ever so slightly.. Just a little makes all the difference..

Should cure your problems without a trip to boat doctor..

If not see James P. post above..

Thanks to NoWieghers. Tried his solution and it worked. Easy to do and saved me some $$$$.
