Raventrans click this link to take you to a website which will you can click on schematics. I suggest adding a 50 amp fuse for your 70 lb thrust unit. scroll to the end of the schematic to find the battery hookup for a 24 volt hookup.

SOURCE: the prop will turn on my minn kota endura 44 but

Odds are you have sheared the pin (slides through the prop shaft) holding the prop, or you have damaged the slot on the prop that the pin sits in.

Prop is secured to the shaft with a metal nut, or flat plastic wing nut. Remove the nut to remove the prop. You may have to pry, slightly, the prop from the motor housing. Removed, you will see a whole in the shaft where a pin should be located. If the pin broke, it probably hit the floor when the prop was loosened. If the pin is intact, examine the rear side of the prop and look for damage to the plastic slot where the pin would sit making contact.

If you've snapped the pin, you can make a replacement with a nail using a hacksaw. Replacement pins can also be ordered from Minn Kota. If the back side of the prop is damaged (recess for the pin to sit), the prop is toast. Replacement props are often carried by Walmart, and include a new pin.

If neither part is broken, perhaps the prop was just not seated on the pin correctly allowing the prop to freewheel.

SOURCE: Minn Kota power drive trolling motor will not

It is the circuit board in the foot pedal. You will have to replace the whole foot pedal. This is a very poor design. The thin plastic which protects the contacts gets a little hole which allows water to enter and consequently the contacts corrode. Has happened to me two times in past four years. It might be OK for operation in a dirt-free water-free environment; but not under actual fishing conditions.

SOURCE: my minn kota riptide 55 stopped working when i

Hi!
To start with, here's a schematic:
RT55 Hand Control
Sounds like key# 87 broke....seen it before.
To replace it, remove top cover, then remove the handle portion by removing the 5 screws underneath. There are a few peices in there, so keep close watch. Also be careful of the fine ribbon wire attaching the handle to the control board...it's pretty fragile.
Best of luck!
Mike

Minn kota will turn on and off with remote, but will only turn 1" to each side.


take off the top cover on the head of the motor and see if there are any restrictions to the movement of the cable. it may be the cable itself is rusted internally and may need replacement. call min kota on the 800 number on the motor for prices for any patrs you may need.

1. possibly a broken connection to the motor where the propeller is located. 2. Also could be a bad motor. 3. Look for a fuse location for a possible blown fuse to the motor. 4. motor brushes could be the problem.
