Question about Winter Sports
The motor on my electric chute on my Yardman snowblower gets hung up at the end of travel as you toggle it all the way to the left. A neighbor took it off and got it unstuck and reassembled it and unless you let it run all the way out it works fine.
This was poorly designed , you will have more problems unless you fix it right as the bolt heads underneath the shute ring is rubbing the right stop and on top of the motor housing the main problem is the left ring stop is hanging up on the front motor mount.
to fix it,remove the motor,grind about 3/16" off the rear shims and file about the same off the bottom of the front motor mount,remove the motor mount bracket,file about 1/4" off of the right stop,remove the shute and the shute ring, mark the left stop before removing,bend the left stop up about 3/16" be careful not to bend the ring,replace motor bracket first than shute ring and shute than replace motor.if your shute has hung up often you may need to replace the motor,you can go to an auto parts store buy a 1999 chevy lumnia passenger side window motor around $50.00 vs yardman $360.00 you will need to tap out the mount holes with a 5/16 standard thread tap and tap from the bottom of the motor,don't forget to file the bottom of front motor mount.
