SOURCE: My Troybilt Snow Blower wheels have locked up

Just found the same problem with mine.  The bearing on the gear shaft is frozen.  To replace these, follow the instructions in the manual to replace the friction wheel, then tap out the bearings in the side of the case, you'll probably find one frozen up.  As long as you're there, might as well put in a new friction wheel.  Mine is looking pretty worn after fighting the bearings all winter.

SOURCE: I have a Troy built front wheel drive mower made

It sounds like you need a new belt for the front wheels.

Troybilt snow thrower wheels lock up cannot push or pull. Model 5524. Whats up?


Sounds like friction disk is not retracting for pressure plate. Flip snowblower up on front end and take out 4 or 6 bolt out of cover plate. wheels will be in the air so try to turn wheels and look. Your fiction disk is the rubber wheel that moves with you gear shift lever. It should not be touching round metal plate unless your handle on bars is push down to in gage drive. Most snowblowers have a spring to pull metal plate back your probably broke or rusted off.

Troy-bilt 5524 snowblower - the drive wheels are locked. Pulled it apart and everything turns but when all gears are in place wheels won't turn - If I move the small gear from the drive it works but goes...


The outermost large gear has 'needle' bearings that will over time get snow, salt grim caught in them and they freeze up. Remove the gear and intially work some WD-40 into the bearings with your fingers. Mine loosed up fairly easy. Continue adding WD-40 to kind of rinse away the grim. Then, dry it out with a rag. I added some lithium (white) grease and worked it good before replacing. Once replaced, it will spin like a top!
