Shearbolt is located at #54 in this diagram.
It may be hard to spot on the auger shaft as it may have sheared flush with the holes so look close. You may also need to remove the part of the bolt remaning inside the shaft.

it is possible the engine is starving for fuel, so essentially it is a carburetor problem with fuel mixture.
Check and see if your carburetor has mixture adjustment needles, there may be an adjustment possible to fix this problem.
Also, sometimes a tiny vent hole in the carb caseing gets clogged causing the engine to run rough or stall.
Does your engine seem to run better if you close the Choke ?
Hope this helps you.

I did a search for Homelite 52642. There are several sites out there with a type of manual running from 25-30 USD. Try looking at a search like I did. Did not see anything on Homelite's site. Maybe the unit is older than 10 years.

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.

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.
