There is a good chance that he 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, the 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.

There should be a couple of allen screws on the shaft that you can loosen, which should allow you to swing the motor head in the direction you want it to be pointing for the desired pedal position. Tighten and carry on.

You should only use the MOM (or momentary) setting when using the push button the foot pedal. Con will just keep the motor running and your foot control will only allow for direction and speed!

mine did the same thing. It turns out that the bottom half of the shaft threads into the top half. So facing down toward the motor spin it counterclockwise while holding the small gear at the top of the shaft and it will tighten. Next you will have to adjust the cable slider gear. With the top off take the six screws out and lift the cable and gear out. Next put your foot pedal at mid position. Then make sure the motor is pointed forward and reinstall the slider gear and the six screws. Last put the top on and make sure the arrow indicator is pointing forward and thats it.
