Either there is a belt or a chain off, or the linkage became disconnected or there is a pin sheared. Take one of the three. If you have power spinning like you said then those are your choices! Best of luck to you. Hope you beat the weather!

How do i remove the impeller from mycraftsman 1350 series 27" snowblower


Before I begin, this is a fairly involved process so if you dont have some mechanical experience you may want to pass it off.
First you have to split the snow blower so remove the bolts on the side of the case just behind the auger case.

The three bolts just to the right of the tire must come off. Then the case will split apart. Stand the engine section against a table or something.
Tip the auger section up on its end so the pulley is facing up. you must remove the pulley by loosening the set screw or bolt on the shaft. This can be very difficult due to rust.

After you get the pulley off you will need to remove the auger assembly from the casing. You will first remove the bolts/nuts that hold the ends of the auger shaft to the side of the case. When those are off you will pull the auger shaft/gear case assembly out of the case. It will look something like this...

Once that is out, you will be able to get to the impeller bolts or pins. If you have bolts simply remove the bolts and slide the impeller off the shaft. Again, this may be difficult due to rust and/or wearing of the shaft under the impeller. If you have pins, the pins will have to be pushed through with a hammer and drift pin smaller than the pins themselves. Then you can purchase new pins. These can be purchased at a local hardware store.

Once you replace the pins, put the machine back together.

Auger on craftsman snowblower is very slow.how do i adjust idle


Not sure how long you have owned this machine but the auger does not turn fast. It 's job is to chop up the snow and push it back to the impeller. The impeller is the round plate in back of the augers that actually throws the snow out the chute. That turns fast. Check to be sure the shear pins are not broken. Shut the machine off. Wait for the augers to stop spinning and then try to turn the augers by hand. If they spin on the shaft then the shear pins are broken-replace them by using original equipment shear pins.

Swisher 27" snowblower front impellers turn free


Hi Craig,

Most snowblowers incorporate "shear pins" between the motor and auger. A shear pin looks similar to a nut and bolt or pin that couples the drive to the auger - but it designed to break or shear off to prevent damage to the auger or motor in the event of a jam or overload. They look like these:

12_21_2012_2_20_37_am.jpg

12_21_2012_2_20_57_am.jpg

Only the shear pin recommended for your particular brand and model snowblower should be used. Under no circumstances should a regular bolt or other steel pin be used instead of a shear pin. Check your manual or consult with Swisher to determine the correct shear pin for your snow blower.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I have an Ariens 1128 Snowblower. Here's the problem, everything seems to function fine, impeller spins, augers spin, howerver, when I put it into any real snow (more than 6-12 inches) the impeller and...


Hi, I will try to help you with this problem. I think the problem might be an adjustment issue. If you take the cover, usually plastic, situated just in front of the engine housing, you will see the belts and pulleys. Without the engine running, press on the auger/impeller lever, and if you look inside you should see how the belt is made to engage the auger pulley. Probably by an idler pulley that pushes on the belt to make it tight to turn the big pulley. That is the most popular way, it is to loosen the bolt on the idler pulley and push it towards the belt so it applies more pressure to the belt to turn the auger pulley and tighten the bolt. There could also be an adjustment on the linkage that might be adjustable. Another possibility is that the belt is worn and is riding on the bottom of the pulleys therefore not providing enough friction to turn the pulleys properly. I think if you take a good look at that system you will comprehend it. Hope this is helpful. All the best and good luck. I will gladly answer any other questions.

Ariens snowblower impeller not throwing snow


Sounds like you have a broken or partially broken shear pin in the auger.Check along the auger[machine off]and see if there is what looks like a bolt anywhere along the auger shaft.If there is [and there will be] remove and inspect it and you will see why the auger is not working.Next time,never clean out a chute or auger while the engine is running,people loose limbs this way.

I have an Airens 8hp snowblower that when it is in gear it won't move forward. It takes alot of force to move it but the augers move and the snow flies out of the chute good. What can I look at fixing?


I believe that model has to belts. one for the auger drive and one for the traction drive. I would check the traction drive belt. The is also a rubber drive donut that rides on a melat disc to drive the wheels. Make sure the rubber drive donut is not glazed and cracked, and one other simple thing to check. On the end of each axle is a pin or some kind of locking device that lock the wheel from spinning on the axle. Make sure these are engaged. Goodluck on it.
