SOURCE: CRAFTSMAN SNOW THROWER DRIVE WHEELS WILL NOT MOVE

well if it is a walk behind style it could be the drive is out of adjustment, also craftsman were famous for the cable mounts bending and that will throw them out of adjustment. follow the traction drive linkage down to the base of the blowe and there should be an adjustment, or it will be under the belt gaurd or even on the handle on some.

SOURCE: how to remove bent augers

There is no repair manual for Craftsman snowthrowers including the Husqvarna built ones like yours. Sears trains their techs to repair these, but not the general public.
Here is the operators manual. It includes detail parts listings so you should be able to go off them to tear the unit apart.
http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/25209/CRAFTSMAN-Snowthrower-Gas-L0909438?brand_name_search=craftsman+52839
I suggest you split the snowthrower from the power unit and put it on a workbench at a convieninet height for you to work from.
On page 22 of the manual is a parts breakdown of the impeller/blower area. Use this to tear your unit apart.
Feel free to ask anymore questions.

As long as your deck mounts match up then you should be good to go. You might have to change to a different sized belt though. Other than that everything should be fine.

Snow throwers


Just returned from the parts store, they had sold out of drive belts for the auger drive on snow throwers... figured I could help out here;

Wet snow is heavy, duh right? Before you run your snow thrower disconnect the spark plug, for safety. Check the chute, and sand any loose paint rust etc. you want a smooth chute.. paint if needed, let dry 24 hours before use, spray with silicon lube spray, this will loessen the stress on your auger belt and hopefully keep your machine running all season. Good luck!

Snow thrower auger won't turn


One of the grip levers should engage a clutch that controls the augers. The other grip lever should engage a clutch to drive the wheels. Figure out which is which, and track the linkage from that lever down to the gearbox between the augers and the impeller. See if there's an adjustment you can make there.

If not... the gearbox may be damaged, possibly by hitting a solid object with hardened bolts in the place of your shear pins. ALWAYS use soft shear pins!

My MTD 10hp auger will not turn. I adjusted the auger cable by tightening the bolt on the handle. I disconnected the spark plug and checked the shear pins on both sides of the auger. They are both still...


Yes there are 2 belts one for the drive and one for the auger. If you remove the cover on top that is located between the engine and the auger housing you can check the belts. The auger belt has come off the pulley or is broken. Hope this helps you out. Best regards and good luck.

My auger stops rotating with heavy snow loads. It sounds as tho a clutch is slipping. I tried to tighten up on the spring in the control cable, but that did not help.What do I adjust next?


The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn. If you remove the cover in the middle of the snow thrower and look at the belt farthest from the motor. This is the auger/blower drive belt.
With the engine not running, have someone depress the auger lever and check the belt. You should only be able to depress the long side 1/2 inch or less. More than that the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced. On some older blowers you can adjust the tension pulley, but most made in the last 15 years, you can't.
I didn't see what make and model this blower was but:
If this is a craftsman you can get parts through searspartsdirect.com. With other makes you can get parts through jackssmallengines.com
Feel free to ask any other questions. I know Craftsman Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!

Snow thrower won't throw snow


the problem could be the snow is to heavy for the motor to keep up, if thats the case you may need to upgrade to a more powerful model or try not to overload it. take it a little slower so the motor can keep up. but try tightening the belt. with your pointer finger push down on the belt it should have about a half inch give, if it moves more than that its too loose and probably slipping under load
