Rochester. My cannon downrigger power just stopped suddenly


Recommended Posts

If you have a breaker box try resetting  it. If you have inline fuses (should) check them and replace if look burned. It is usually that but if not maybe a bad switch. Screwwy Louies near Fairhaven used to fix them and may still. If not try Fish307 in Lake George.

Unplug it, throw a meter on the power side to confirm you are getting power.  If not, easy fix with the fuse.  If you have power, gotta look at the rigger.  I'm pretty sure there is a verified Cannon tech in Buffalo/West Seneca if it needs work.  Changing parts on these is quite easy though.

And if you have electrical capabilities you can take it one step farther (provided it’s out of warranty) use a meter to check if you have 12v coming from board to motor.  It will tell you if board is fried or not.

I live in Rochester. Anyone fix cannon electric downriggers? Possibly a fuse or switch

 

 

More than likely its a board.  Open the cover and look at the board.  Usually one of the components on the board will show visual burn if bad.  Most of the time, you can smell it once the rigger case is opened.

Just used Screwy Louies to repair 2, one needed counter replaced which Brandon replaced, other needed power cord end replacement, 1 of 2 male prongs on motor power cord broke, bought part and replaced myself. Most likely would have parts you need
