I have a MTD PRO Model#12AV55DQ513 as well. The bell hub under the lawn mower has now cracked and chipped for the 2nd time. Taking it to a local MTD rep near here is difficult cause it's too far to go. Anyone know of other reps close to Port Moody, BC, Canada? Anywhere in the Vancouver, BC area?

Yes it can be fixed. Try some basics first.
1) Check under belt drive cover for excess debris
2) Belt and Idler pulley condition
3) Control cable operation
a) rusted, frozen, broken, disconnected

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.

SOURCE: how to adjust a 9460897 mtd snow blower auger

On the handle end (usually) of the cable is a curved metal connector. Attached to the connector is a threaded rod with a nut. Attach a pair of pliers to the threaded cylinder that the threaded rod goes into. Loosen the nut. Turn the threaded cylinder into the threaded rod to tighten or out to loosen. When you have the correct adjustment, tighten the nut back down onto the cylinder. To be correctly adjusted, pull the cover off the auger belt and push down on the handle. The spring attached to the cable at the pulley end should stretch out when the handle is fully depressed. Spring tension keeps the belt tight. iaff801.jpg

I have a MTD snowblower yard machine.how to adjust


There should be metal shoes on the side of the snowblower. They have adjustment bolts that allow the auger housing to move up and down. loosen them and adjust to how close you want it to the ground. It also depends on the model. This process only applies to large self propelled models which are a two stage snowthrower. if its a small single stage there is usually no adjustment.

I have a snow blower which will start up but it won't move forward in the snow nor will it push the snow. Not sure what is wrong. I can manually move the blade around that pushes the snow.


If you start the machine and the axles spin but the augers do not it is because the shear pins are broke. If you look closely you will see the the augers have shear bolts and nuts or shear pins. If you jam a piece of ice or a stick in the augers while they are spinning the bolts will shear so you do not damage the expensive augers or the worm drive gears. If the axle spins with the augers you may have torn up the front worm gear in the front of the auger intake. If you spin the small auger and the large auger moves but when you start and engage the auger nothing happens you will have to remove the under cover and inspect the drive belt pulleys for jammed or broken parts or more commonly broken drive belts.

Your snowblower has 4 shear pins keeping the front auger safe. Use the manual to locate them if you are unsure where they are and how to change them. Since your snowblower is new I am going to assume you have the manual.
Your snowblower came with 2 spare shearpins. Check up by the handles and see if they are still there. If you don''t have them go to your local Lowes, Sears, or MTD repair shop to get new ones. DO NOT USE STANDARD BOLTS!

The drive shaft coming out of the gear box is one, solid piece all the way across the snowthrower so if one side is turning there is a 95% chance it's the shear pins.
Feel free to ask any other questions. I know Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!

When i squeeze my auger control, my snow thrower makes loud noise and kills my engine. what kind of problems do i have?


Hi
First check the belts that they didn't run off the pulleys and get jamed. Check the idler/tightner pulley see if it spins freely. Check that nothing is jammed in auger. Try to turn auger pulley by hand if it does not turn or is noisey you have a problem in the gearbox.
