Re: one side of my ARIENS ST928 SNOW BLOWER doesn't work
Most likely you have a broken shear pin. Look on the side that works, there should be a bolt or pin through it. The side that is not working is probably broke off. Find the hole in the auger and line it up with the inner shaft and replace with proper shear pin/bolt. Shear bolts can be obtained from most outdoor power equipment shops. I do not suggest replacing with standard bolt as it can cause damage to you gear box it auger gets jammed.

Many snowblowers use pins (or bolts - see image below) that pass thru the shoulder of the rim of the tires thru a hole drilled thru the drive shaft. Removing both of the pins allows the tires to spin freely on the drive shaft and makes it much easier to push, pull and turn the snowblower. If they are not installed again, the machine will not "drive" and make clearing snow difficult to do. Installing only one will make the machine want to go in circles. Make sure you have these pins installed thru BOTH rim shoulders and drive shafts - locked in place. Other machines lock the tires in other ways - since it sounds like one side is working correctly - you should compare the two tires / rims and make them both look like the one that works properly. Good luck!
Not necessarily. That is the normal operation of the differential. If the Left tire is on dry pavement and/or getting good traction and the right tire is on snow and ice, the right tire will spin and the left tire will just sit there. If you can get something under the right tire (a board, large piece of cardboard, sand, salt.etc.) both tires will drive to get you out of the snow.
ok heres what you do to get your snow blower to keep running.
while you have it choked, and you get it to the running point, turn the cup bowl ajustment in/out a fraction at a time while you move the chock off slowly till you get the right setting to keep it running then ajust the setting once more to clear it up to purrr like a kitten again the vibration moves the screw out to set everything out of wack......
I will assume you are referring to the 2 stages in the front of the machine. The spiral auger rakes are the first stage, they are designed to collect the snow and feed it to the impeller. The impeller is the 2nd stage and is to throw the snow up the chute. The lower rakes in the front do nopt throw snow only collect it.
Screw both screws right in (don't force them) Then turn each screw out 1 & half turns each OUT. This will get engine running. To fine tune- turn low speed screw out, bit by bit, while idling, till engine revs change, then turn screw in till revs change, the correct setting will be somewhere between the 2 adjustments you just made. Do the same thing to the high speed screw, but with full revs. Good Luck. Stevo..
