My Snow thrower will only go in reverse.

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.

SOURCE: my ariens 824 wont go forward or reverse

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.

Change air filter on Craftsman 24 inch snow thrower - model no. 247.885957


Most snow throwers do not have air filters. Dust is usually not an issue when blowing snow. If units have air filters, they would freeze over and stop the engine.

I just bought a Sears snow thrower, I put in oil and gas went to start it but the pull cord will not pull up. I then tried the electric starter but it just made a grinding sound. Why won t it start?


Check the crankcase and make sure it has oil. It sounds like the engine is frozen. If its brand new, take it back to Sears and have them start it for you.

My MTD 10hp auger will not turn. I adjusted the auger cable by tightening the bolt on the handle. I disconnected the spark plug and checked the shear pins on both sides of the auger. They are both still...


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.
