Question about Craftsman 16" High Garden Tractor Snow and Dozer Blade
Model 536886260 the augar is spinning but stops when snow gets in the shoot. Is there a belt slipping?
I have the same machine and it sounds like the belt is indeed slipping. If the belt is not worn or stretched too badly, you can perform a small adjustment on the idler-wheel (the thing that controls belt tension) by sliding back the plastic cover on the spring that is attached to the bottom of the lever-cable and tightening the nut so that there is less slack in the cable. If the nut is all already all the up, then you need to replace the belt, which can be easily accessed by removing the plastic cover in front of the motor under where the spare shear pin compartment is located. There are two bolts (one on each side) that need to be removed and then the cover just pulls off. This will expose both belts. The front one is for the auger drive and the rear one is for the wheel drive. The belt can be easily replaced without any further dis-assembly by simply removing and replacing it in the reverse manner. Don't forget to readjust the spring so that excessive tension is not applied to the new belt. Hope this helps.
