Question about Raymarine St1000 Plus Tiller Pilot

1 Answer

My ST1000 tiller auto pilot has broken screw mounts inside the cover, and while to the compass and gyro work, the plus or minus keys don't seem to move the hydraulics. When I removed the cover I found two broken screw mounts rattling around inside the unit, and the remaining mounts were all cracked. The seal at the rear of the hydraulics appears to be damaged from the fragments of the broken mounts. Is this something that can be repaired and who do I contact for service?

Yes it can be repaired. Any Raymarine dealer should be able to help you out. If you can't find a local dealer, email me: and I can give you pricing on the repair. I would need your serial number of the pilot.

Brown & blue wiring 12 volt which is positive?

Blue should be positive. Is there no way you can trace it back?

I'm trying to fix an autohelm 1000 and ned the schematic

Go to Raymarine website and look under Technical Support, Manuals and documents. All of their product manuals are listed there. If you are burning out the transistors, it sounds like you are puting too much load on the auto pilot.

St 1000 just beeps all the time no display

This sounds very much like a power supply issue.
(I've had it happen as well)
Thoroughly inspect, clean and lubricate all connections to the battery. Pay particular attention to the plug of the 1000. It has been my experience that not much corrosion is needed to render the 1000 inoperable.
If anyone requires the owner's manual, you can view/download it at the link below.

Raymarine st 1000 displays 1000 (flashing and beeps) and the actuating rod will not move

Have the same problem, sick and tired of it. It is 18 month old, had repaired once 2 months ago by raymarine, some soldered joints came undone on the board, not working again! Used it 4 times since new out of probably 20 attempts. Every time I try to use some new problem raises. Possibly just my luck. Just ordered a new Navico st 32 heard it is better unit.

Just interested on ''how'' the Autohelm ST1000 Plus works! is there somewhere on the net that I can check, I just bought a boat with one one it and I know how to make it work, but I want to...

The ST1000+ does not have an internal GPS. What it does have is an electronic compass underneath the keypad. When you order the Tillerpilot to steer to a bearing, the unit uses the electronic compass to steer using a series of corrections.

Just in case you've misplaced your Owners Manual, you can use this link to download it to your computer:

Click on your language preference, then Autopilots from the drop-down menu, tillerpilots and finally ST 1000+. The pdf file for your unit is 81130_6.pdf

Hope this helps and happy boating!

I have a Raymarine ST2000+ tiller pilot. In going to install it, the way my boat is laid out, the best way to install it would result in its being about 5 degrees diagonal to the transom, looking down on...


I can't see being 5 degrees off line much of a problem as far as the sweep is concerned.

I'm fairly sure that when you do your 1 1/2 to 2 SLOW circles that the tillerpilot will correct itself to read closer to your actual compass heading as well.

Hope this helps you out.
Happy Boating!

I have the same problem. Do you have a solution for it yet?
I do think it has to do something with decreasing power from my onboard accu. The first hour(s) sailing I don't have any problems, but after a while mine is jumping to STANDBY too, and the periods between become shorter, until less then 5 minutes.

My Ray Marine ST 1000 auto tiller pilot started setting stuck, but not consistantly. the shaft just vibrates in some spots but does not move. what could be the probable cause?

the worm gear that is inside the unit may need to lubricated,, remove the bottom case and lubricate gears and shaft with a teflon or silicone based lube. also on my sailboat when this happened I found that I needed to re-calibrate the unit - take the boat out into a very calm and open water and ' spin the boat ' in CAL mode ( this will re-orientate the internal compass ).
have fun on the water and have a great night,

Same thing happened to a friend using an ST2000+ (was reading 2000 instead of 1000). Found that that power (12 V) and ground had been mixed up, so that the internal reverse voltage protection keeps resetting the pilot each time a button was pressed.
