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.

    How to align the prop and nose (bottom) with the handle (top)


    FISH307 com Fishing Tackle Superstore
    This is a link that will allow you to look at a schematic for you motor.
    Minn Kota hand control motors have a small nut/bolt thru the motor shift aligning the handle with the lower unit. If yours does not line up your either missino this bolt or a previous owner altered the motor.
    Hope this helps.

    Minn Kota riptide ST green ready light will not turn on. It started flickering and will not turn on now. Pressed the battery test button and it shows that the batteries are fully charged. HELP!!!


    Does the unit work without the auto pilot? Sounds like the auto pilot or the reciever is not functioning correctly.
    Check and make sure the unit is grounded properly, you may need to run a test ground wire from the battery to the motor istelf to check this.
    This is simple to do and takes 15 minutes. Starting in the battery compartment feed cable into the split-loom and continue feeding until reaching the control panel. Pull an extra 5 foot of cable and open dry hatch in rear by motor feed cable around and out to motor connections., Good time to check any circuit breakers
    Try cycling the auto pilot though the modes.
    there are 3 modes
    to cycle through each mode
    hold down the + and - key for 2 seconds
    this cycles you to the next mode. Last but not least, try turning the unit on and spinning the prop by hand to see if it takes off, the motor migt be bound up slightly or have a bad spot on the brushes.

    My minn kota riptide 55 stopped working when i turn the handle. i believe its a connection issue. i dismantled the housing around the handle and a little metal washer fell out broke in half and the pieces...


    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!

    Prop spins slow on any speed on the foot pedal


    There is a good chance that the 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, 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.
