Trolling Motor Troubleshooting

I have a Minn Kota 65mx trolling motor that was unearthed from my shed after several years of inactivity. Not suprisingly, it refuses to opperate. I was wondering where to start on trouble shooting after checking voltage at the motor leads. I have not yet taken it apart - I'll save it for later tonight

most likely water has entered the motor and rusted the berings and brushs. when this happens the insulation on the wires on the fields sometimes braks down and will short the motor.If that happened your better off to get a new one
