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.

Ariens st350 snow blower wont blow snow, augers wont spin


there is a bolt that goes thru auger and spinning shaft (look for a hole where it once was) holds the augers to the spinning shafts, it is called a shear pin, it is a safety feature, and made of softer metal, so if you pick up something too hard with the auger, it wont lock up the engine, or break engine crank shaft.find an ariens repair shop to purchase the shear pin so you get the right softness of metal.

I have a ariens 24 "sno tech it will not throw


The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn. If you remove the cover (usually plastic) in the middle of the snow thrower and look at the belt closest to the blower assembly. This is the blower drive belt. (Your operators manual will show you the location and how to remove the cover if you are unfamiliar with your snow blower)
With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive 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.
The belt may be frayed on the edges or glazed causing it to slip (it is shiny on the sides of the belt)
You can get parts (the new belt) through your local Ariens dealer or jackssmallengines.com

Only one blade turns automatically on Ariens snow blower.


There is a bolt that goes through the center of the shaft that shears off if you hit something. You will need to line up the holes of the internal shaft with the auger tube and install a new bolt.

Snow blower won't stay running


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......
