    minn kota problem

    I have a foot control 2 year old 24v minn kota. Couple of trips ago it would not start when I hit button. If I lift the motor out of the water and put it back down it usually works then.. did it 8-10 times.. Have looked at everything visible and do not see and wires worn. any suggestions? thanks
