Question about Garden
It was working fine. I stopped to shovel the steps while the engine was still running. I went back to continue bllowing snow ant it would only travel in reverse. What must I do to get it to go forward again? I have an Ariens ST724 7 HP snow thrower.
I would check your traction drive disc for wear or shredding.With low or little fuel in tank you can safely grab handle bars and lift machine up on it's auger housing.Then remove shield from under machine and inspect metal disc with rubber around it.If rubber looks worn you can get a replacement traction drive disc easily from most small engine repair shop's or go online and look for your nearest Ariens dealer.

check the bearings in the auger sounds like the froze up and now they need to be replaced (the smoking you saw was from the belts slipping on the pullies)..good luck
