Both augers will not turn to blow snow thru shoot.

Hit a patch of medium size rock while clearing drive and about a thre lb stone got lodged into auger. When this happened the auger stopped turning and blowing snow. Now the auger will not engage when lever is pressed down. Motor still runs fine, what could it be. thanks

Craftsmen 5/24 plus tracked two stage snow blower seems as though auger is seized when you press auger lever bogs down and dies . Any idea what might be wrong

If the auger will not turn at all, check for a stone (if you have landscaping stone or limestone close to the driveway) or foreign object wedge between the fan and fan housing. Also some small debris could be behind the fan and wedged against the housing.

The auger is no longer turning. How do I fix it?

Check for broken shear bolts first. Then, move on and check the auger belt. Finally, if all those are ok, check the gear housing on the auger drive shaft (right in front, between the two auger blades).

How do you replace the auger throtlle cable on model 536.886122. The manual is not clear.

Usually it's just a cable that pulls an arm that tightens an Idler Pulley.
Take the Plastic cover off , by the Shoot, and understand how the Idler moves to tighten the Belt. then rock the machine up on the Auger Housing and remove the bottom cover. you will see all the mechanicals that make it function

Is there a shear bolt on the caroni tiller 5ft?

Yes all tillers and snow blowers that size need shear bolts in the tiller in the case it would get stones lodged between the tiller blades and the shield..or packed snow,ice or even stones in the auger , may get away with using a soft steel bolt but sooner or later you will be replacing a broken gear box..even if yours does not have them get them..a $2 bolt or new gear box your choice.Just measure the bolt length and the shaft diameter not any shear bolt will due..the grooves on the bolt are meant to be the same size as the shaft diameter to insure shear at the shaft area that is under extreme pressure..Hope this helped..good luck.

Snow blower stopped working

With the spark plug disconnected and the key out, try to move the auger from the front.It may be jammed (sometimes a rock). Then look behind the auger at the belts. Of course I'm guessing that you checked the shear pin that goes thru the auger and the shaft

My yard master 5.5 horse power snow blower isn't blowing snow I have changed belts, spark plug, share pins all fine. Starts on first pull as soon as i hit snow it bogs down and stops. Main auger turns fine...

Assuming that you mean that the engine bogs down, try increasing the main jet setting by turning the screw CCW (looking at the outer end of the screw) somewhat. If no help, the carburetor may need cleaning to allow more fuel to the engine. Make sure the muffler and fuel filter aren't plugged. Hope this helps!
