Question about Minn Kota Riptide St Saltwater 80 Bow Mount Trolling Motor

I have the remote controlled Riptide 80lb thrust bow mount. The motor runs, but it will not turn. Sounds / looks like something is binding in the turning control motor. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Mounting a sonor/transducer on a MinnKota Riptide ST

Did the unit come with a strap to mount the transducer to a bow mount electric? Most units do... If not there is probably one available for the unit as an aftermarket accessory or accessory from the manufacturer... Regarding the transducer wire, just wrap and rout this up the front of the bow mount motor shaft so when you pull the motor up and secure it, it is not going to get in the way. You could cable tie the cord down near the bottom of the shaft and one up near the top where they wont interfere with the motor bracket when the motor is positioned up on the boat.

Contact the people at this Email address. Minn Kota <Motors@johnsonoutdoors.com> The address is between the brackets. They emailed me a manual for a different trolling motor. They are nice folks. It will take up to a week for you to get a reply.

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.

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.
