    Did at some point something jam up the auger? Also have you checked the fluid in the gear box? It sounds like you might be haveing a problem with the gear box.

My 5hp 22 inchsnow blower does not throw snow The auger seems to work but the impeller will not shoot the snow. Could it be that the belt needs to be replaced or is there another cause?


Could be the belt or more likely, a shear pin. I would lean toward a shear pin.

You don't mention the make so it is difficult to proceed.

Thanks for your interest today.

I have a Craftsman 9hp snowblower and it is not blowing snow. Both shear pins are intact but the 2nd stage auger does not seem to be spinning to throw the snow through the chute.\r\nIs there a belt or...


It is belt driven, the belt is located between the chute and the engine behind the inspection cover some have it on the top and some on the bottom.That model may have to be split in half to get the belt past the shaft.But regardless it can at least be inspected by taking the cover off.Please let me know if this helps

Have a craftsmand 24" snowthrower


If the motor runs well, the two most common causes of this are the drive belt is worn and/or the shear pins are broke.
If you remove the cover (usually plastic) in the middle of the snow thrower and look at the belts.
Your operator's manual will show you how to remove the cover and check/change the belts.
If you don't have a copy you can get the manual through managemyhome.com
You will need the model number off the snowblower. It is usually located on the bottom right hand corner of the frame (from the handle side)
The model number looks like 247.123456.
The belt closest to the blower assembly drives the auger/blower and the belt closest to the engine drives the transmission. It sounds like you need to inspect the blower belt.
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) It may be torn and broke completely.
Replace the belt if it is worn, stretched or frayed
The shear pins are located on the auger in the front of the machine. Your newer Craftsman has four. If you don't now about them look in your operator's manual for the location. You need all four for the snowblower to work well. Replace the missing ones.
You can get parts for you Craftsman and most MTD made models through searspartsdirect.com. With other makes you can get parts through jackssmallengines.com
If you are unfamiliar with repairing machines you can get your snow blower repaired by taking it to your local Sears.
They will have a technician troubleshoot and repair the unit.

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)

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

John Deere Snowblower - wheel won't spin


yes 2 solutions. the sheer pins have got broken down on that auger that wont spin, they go through the middle bar. easy fix. about 2 dollar.

The other thing is. The drive belt located directly in the middle of the machine has a plastic cover over it has slipped off or is broken.

THis is a little more tricky as you split the machine taking off the collection cage usually to fix. I charge 89 dollars in my shop to do these.

Its not hard if you pay attention to where you need to take off the parts.
