Remove the cover on the very bottom under the engine, you will see a wheel with rubber ( the friction wheel ) on it, when you squeeze the handle for the drive you should not be able to turn that wheel by hand. First check to see if there is enough rubber extending from the metal disk it is attached to, if there is then it might be just adjusting the drive cable till the drive disc grabs the friction wheel sufficiently. If there isn't enough rubber or the rubber is chewed up you may need to replace the rubber part ( if the disc has screws in it to be able to seperate) or replace the whole wheel ( if the disc doesn't come apart ).

Yardworks snow blower


Leaks are normally from bad seals or ones put on engine wrong. Many snow blowers leak oil, very common. Electric start needs to be taken apart. Rust is problem most likely. When you engage the starter it kicks out the gear to turn over engine. Carefully remove the starter from engine, try to start starter an if the pinion gear does not kick out from starter disassembly it an try to clean rust away from action. Dont break wires around electric motor careful about getting dirt an rust in winding. Try to lube spring an moving parts around gear. One other thing it could be a sheared off gear on starter also.

I have Troy-Bilt storm 7524 snow blower which normally works fine, however, it has started to have problems shifting back into forward gear after being reversed. I'll put the snow-blower into reverse gear...


Try lubing the linkage where it shifts from forward and to reverse the linkage is most likely freezing up or has snow or ice build up causing it not to shift, My thought is your shoving it hard enough that it finally engages when you get the snow or ice to break off.
