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 riptide 55 bow mount with foot control and auto pilot. problem is prop doesn't seem to spin as fast so top speed is about half to two thirds of what it was when new. unit is about 5yrs old.just...


Sounds as if the motor has either bearings going bad and/or water has gotten in the housing washed the lubricants out. Motors do wear out eventually. I'm not sure if the brushes are replacible. Have you checked for any constrictions like fishing line? And also the contacts on the controller could have minor corrosion meaning take it apart if possible and clean with steel wool or a dremel.
