    I have a Honda that has the same issue. It's a hydrostatic drive (if that makes a difference) Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

SOURCE: Screws on my Sears track drive snowblower unthread themselves.

Back wheels have a gear that connects to the drive chain. on each side. those spin.
The front ones which are Idlers do not spin as the idler wheel as a bushing in it that allows free motion on the shaft without resistance. Use a nylock nut with Locktight for starters. The try that.

Hope this helps. -Jeff anchorage small engine repair.

SOURCE: I have a Sears model

There is nothing to be frozen in there - all the Craftman snowblowers from Sears have the clutch sealed so unless you have dumped it entirely in a deep pool of water and left it there for days there is no way the water has got in the mechanism and froze in there.
Use this parts diagrams to check the belts and the commands - one of them is broken and you will need to replace it.

Sears model 247.888550 9 hp track drive. Track came off on right side. How can I reinstall it?


Loosen the adjusting bolts at the front of the snowblower. The front wheel should slide back enough that you can reinstall the track. I have also included the track adjustment instructions.

TO ADJUST TRACK
If the snow thrower does not move forward evenly and the
track slips slightly, you need to check the track as follows:
® Pull up gently on the center of the track near the
center.
Measure the distance between the track and the top
of the track support frame (See Fig.. 38). The distance
should not be more than one and one quarter
(1-I/4) inches.
If the distance is greater, you need to adjust the track as
follows: Loosen or tighten the adjusting bolt at the front of the
track support frame (See Fig 38) to obtain the
proper distance between the track and the track
support frame.
Adjust the track on the opposite side in the same
manner.

How do I fix my snowblower when the wheels won,t move ahead or back


Sounds like gear on axle shaft broke shear bolt or key. Take bottom plate off base of snowblower.It is ok to tip snowblown up on front end so wheels are in air. After plate is off turn wheels and see if drive gear is moving with axle. If not key way or bolt has broken off, replace and will be back in motion.

Snow blower 247.887900 is slipping our of gear any help


Check the bearing of the small drive wheel with rubber tire in the transmission--it may not be tracking the larger metal disc properly. Access to the transmission is usually through a bottom cover plate between the wheels. Hope this helps!

Where is the tracking adjustment on the Craftsman 12inch Tilt Head Bandsaw?


The tracking adjustment is on the top wheel in the middle-spin the wheel by hand ( please make sure its unplugged first ) if the blades moves towards the front of the saw turn 1/4 turn clockwise and turn counterclockwise if its going the other way. remember that alot of things can cause your blade not to track right. I would back off all guides and rollers,top and bottom,adjust the tracking -then move guides and rollers back in. also the rule of thumb on your guides is not to touch the blade but to be as close as possible-make sure they are both even-set back 1/32 from the gulliet i.e the deepest part of the blade teeth. One other thing is the bearing in the back(back up bearing) should not touch the blade when wood is NOT going through (set it close,but not touching).

Sorry for the long answer but I've been there-get the manual and it shows it alot better.

Snowblower Treads not turning


Check the steel axles that go through the plastic wheels.What happens is the axles rust and swell not allowing the track wheels to turn freely.its a problem overlooked by all the so called small engine repair shops.I have removed the wheels and sanded the axles to remove the rust.I greased the shafts and the wheels move freely.There is a provision on the wheel for a grease fitting.I carefully drilled the holes and with some strong waterproof glue thredhed a fitting in each wheel.

Snowblower drive will stop unexpectly when snowblowing


Mine was doing the same thing and I found that if I put it in reverse for a little while it would be ok again for a short time. I found also that it did this more often when the snow was heavy and wet which makes me think that the rubber drive wheel is getting wet and slipping. If you've brought it in to a shop and they've said that nothing could be found wrong, then it must be something that goes away by the time you get it there - water (I'm guessing).
