Do you have your owner's manual? If not, here is a website with the document: http://www.motorguide.com/userfiles/file/Support/OwnersManuals/2011%20Wireless%20Manual.pdf
From what you've said, I'm not sure exactly what is going on. The instructions state that the control will beep when it's on and a button is pushed, then you'll get a longer beep when it goes off.
Now, the fact that you don't get a speed change... did you just push the button and let go or have you tried just holding the button down? Just pushing and letting go will give just a slight change, but holding the button down will give a greater speed change.
In the troubleshooting section, they give things to do if something doesn't work, such as reprogramming, the control doesn't have the serial number of the remote entered into its memory.
Other reasons for problems are weak batteries, etc.
Try the things in the troubleshooting section of the owner's manual, then if that doesn't work, call the service number in their. They should help you out. If something's wrong with the system, then they should replace it.
I hope this helps, if it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Unless you are mechanically inclined, dont attempt this. Take the lower unit apart by removing the prop and removing the two bolts that hold the forward and aft housing to the center housing. Fwd being the cone shaped part. Pull the aft housing away from the motor so you can inspect the connections to the board that holds the brushes and the soldered wiring terminals. You should find the solder missing from at least one of the terminals that connects the wiring from the foot switch to the speed control windings inside the aft housing. Clean up the terminal and wiring and re-solder. Also re-flow the solder on the other terminals. Clean up the seals and the area where the seals meet the housing parts. Replace seals if damaged. Reassemble the lower unit and torque the bolts 45-50 in-lbs and no more otherwise you will fail the seals. This problem is due to a "cold" solder joint that creates a high resistance to elec current flow and heats enough to melt the solder. This is a result of poor quality control at the manufacturer. Good luck.
