I had same problem- Just press the + sign on the remote to move off of zero setting.
Remote most times resets to zero when power shut off unit. I found in manual on remote & hi lighted for futrure reference- Easy to miss -or not do
Is it 12 or 24 Volt system and check to see if there is a com switch that has to be turned on and there should be a click (switch) wich activates and allows the prop to turn. and are you using a foot pedal or a wireless remote?

Hello, You have several points to check. #1 check your wiring connections--- plug, plug socket, wiring connections internal of trolling motor, condition of wiring to battery, battery terminal connection & charge of battery. #2 borrow someones DVM (digital multimeter) and check the resistance of the speed control as you turn it without any wires connected to it. #3 if problem not found take 2 aspirin and E-mail me of test results "for further review".
It is most likely a damaged prop. If the gear shift handle is steady while it is slipping, Your prop needs to go to the shop for a re hub. Take a punch and mark the center of the prop (the hub) ,then mark the blade of the prop in alignment. Try it out and see if the marks still line up. If they have moved- the prop is bad.
I just ahd this problem too. IT ended up that one of the leads had come off the motor inside the housing. In my case it was the black lead going to the brush. Take the top part off you control head, and apply 12v directly to the motor leads that extend down the tube. If the motor doesn't turn, then the problem is in the motor itself.
there is a plastic nut that screws onto the prop shaft and needs to be unscrewed. there is also a metal pin that goes through the shaft that needs to be in place and in the right position when you replace the prop. make sure you clear out any fishing line etc that may have collected behind it when you change props.sually recommend you put a little clear silicone grease on the parts as you assemble them as well.ake sure you disconnect the power leads from the battery while your doing this to avoid injury.
Without more information, it could be a number of things. For starters, you might try disconnecting the ground wire to see if that makes any difference. The Xantrex Owner's/Installation Manual says specifically not to connect the inverter's negative *battery cable* to the vessel ground, but if the unit's housing and the negative cable share a common ground somewhere inside the unit, that would be the same thing. The T-105s are great batteries, but since they are 6V, make sure you rewired them correctly, i.e. a pair in series (12V) wired in parallel with the other pair for 450 AH total. Recheck all your battery connections and make sure you didn't blow the inline battery fuse in case you inadvertently made a momentary wrong connection during the new battery installation.
There is a good chance that the control board is bad. This is a common problem with these units. I have replaced my control board twice. When the control board goes out, some function of the unit will not work correctly while other functions work fine. The first time mine went out, the prop motor would not work. The last time the board went out, the unit would only steer right.
One way to help isolate the problem is to turn the motor to an "on" position. Using a voltmeter, using the leads that go to the battery, test for continuity. If none, your problem is with the motor itself or the wiring inside the unit. Hopefully, you just have a loose connection. If the motor becomes warm or hot when connected to a charged battery while in "on" position, the motor is the problem.
Same deal with mine, was using it with no problems until I turned up the trust alittle and it just quit, never turned back on nor did the circuit breaker pop. Talked to Minn Kota thy said the board might be fried as well. So took it to a authorized dealer. I had 2 issues (only minor with the motor) Easy fix for mine was under the button on the foot pedal is a small round magnet about half the size of a pencil in diameter or so. The tech said it got recessed down to far and if it should happen again just pull it up again. So took it back home re-installed and no luck, just heard a tiny ticking noise from the foot pedal, no prop movement. SO I checked the batteeries, all good. Even though the connectons had very minor corrosion I decided to disconnect all and clean them. Re-connected them and now I am back in business. Dont understand it, but hey it works until I actually test it out on the lake. Hope it helped
