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

1 Answer

My 82lb thrust riptide has trouble engaging. I turn the handle to forward and nothing happens, then I jiggle the handle and BAMM it works, but it engaged in reverse. Now I'm going backwards. I jiggle the handle again and it is lethargic at best. Then POW the next time i turn the handle it works fine.

Great white wont turn motor runs but wont turn


Do you mean you can hear the motor turn but the propellor doesn't turn?
Then check the break-pin of the propellor. It's a security device that will break when the propellor hits an object in the water...

New starter installed spins but wont engage ingine


The starter sprocket wheel is thrusted into engaging the flywheel by a big solenoid. That solenoid is integral part of the starter motor. If the starter turn itself but it doesn't turns the engine then either it was incorrectly installed or the thrust solenoid is defective.
Simple test: take out the starter, attach it to a bench, connect to it thew power cables from a battery (the minus one to the body, the plus one to the big connector bolt) then short the big connector bolt to the small one with a screwdriver - the solenoid should activate, the sprocket should be thrusted forward and the motor should start spinning it.
If that doesn't happen then the starter you just bought is defective, replace it. If that happens the starter was incorrectly installed on the engine. Reinstall it correctly.

I have a dodge neon 2004 sxt the started sounds like it is turningbut the motor does not turn at all


Hello, sounds like the gear in your starter motor is not engaging/thrusting forward. It will still spin but it will sound like a effortless free spin, have your starter motor looked at. The other problem it could have but it is a very slim chance is that the flywheel which the starter motor engages onto is stripped, this use to happen in the older cars but its not a common problem now.

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 like a loose wire, the wire is connected to the handle, you may be able to fix this yourself but be careful you can void the warranty by doing it your self. (most people make the problem worse) remember your kirby has a lifetime warranty (limited) the first 3 years anything and everything, after that for 175 dollars you can send it in and get it rebuilt to the newest model no matter how old it is as long as the person is still alive that signed the warranty card.

hope that helped.
