Open Question

I have a Yard machine snowblower that wont throw snow I replaced the shear pin that was bent but the augers still wont turn. I checked the belts and they seem to be in place. The 2 stage auger shaft turns but not the shaft that turns the main augers. Could you tell me the problem?

    That was the problem. I also called the company and they said the same thing about the worm gear. I decided to buy a Gravely plow instead. Thanks for your help.

SOURCE: snow thrower won't throw snow

the problem could be the snow is to heavy for the motor to keep up, if thats the case you may need to upgrade to a more powerful model or try not to overload it. take it a little slower so the motor can keep up. but try tightening the belt. with your pointer finger push down on the belt it should have about a half inch give, if it moves more than that its too loose and probably slipping under load

Hi,
Yes, you have a shear pin and that is probably the problem...
The shear pin often will not fall out and look like a normal piece but in fact be broken...
The shear pin usually is in the main shaft from the transmission to the auger drive...
Some are right on the auger its self...look around you will find it...

In heavy snow stop blowing snow


1 -Verify that all of your shear pins or bolts are in place. 1 on each auger and either 1 or 2 on the impeller fan.
2- Make sure all of the impeller blades are not bent as this will affect the throwing distance.
3 -Check the impeller bearing as it will lift if it is bad once snow is introduced into the machine.Remove the spark plug wire and verify that there is no tension on the impeller by turning it with a stick or broom handle. If it is safe reach through the chute hole and grab the impeller shaft and try to move it up and down, there should be little to no play.
4- Check your belt or belts. The belt should only deflect 1/2" with moderate pressure to be adjusted properly.
5- Check the condition of the belt, if the sides of the belt are glazed it may be slipping under load, if so replace the belt or try using a belt dressing spray.

Mtd yardmachine snow blower 305 cc auger wont turn


This is a fairly frequent problem that is easily fixed. What happened was the snowblower's auger was either overloaded or got jammed (ice, debris - something other than snow). Rather than twist, damage or break the auger itself, an inexpensive part called a "shear pin" is designed to fail. A shear pin employed between the auger sleeve and drive shaft that is inside the sleeve. You may have broken one if one side of the auger spins) or both (if both sides of the auger spins). Purchase several replacements for your particular machine to have on hand. Do NOT replace s shear pin (or shear bolt) with a regular bolt under any circumstances! Check the video linked below on how to replace the shear pins. Good luck!

My yardmachine snow blower 8hp auger won't turn. I replaced the cable and belt but it still won't turn. What else could be wrong?


Check the auger shear pins replace if necessary with correct parts(not regular bolts).
If auger and the impeller are not turning your cable is out of adjustment.
If only the auger doesn't turn, and the shear pins are ok then the brass/bronze gear has shredded which is why proper shear pins must be used. Donyboy73 on youtube show how to replace that gear on an older but similar MTD affiliated blower.

Auger on craftsman snowblower is very slow.how do i adjust idle


Not sure how long you have owned this machine but the auger does not turn fast. It 's job is to chop up the snow and push it back to the impeller. The impeller is the round plate in back of the augers that actually throws the snow out the chute. That turns fast. Check to be sure the shear pins are not broken. Shut the machine off. Wait for the augers to stop spinning and then try to turn the augers by hand. If they spin on the shaft then the shear pins are broken-replace them by using original equipment shear pins.

When you pull down handle,the machine will not ingage and throw snow.


I assume you are not trying to throw snow with a 22" push mower. I would narrow your problem to the following items:

Bad belt driving the auger.

Broken shear pins in the auger unit
or

Worn out paddles that throw the snow.

All of these items are replaceable.

I recommend consulting a local dealer like www.arcolawn.com to see if any updates are recommended for your machine.

Good luck
