    It has shear pins that should snap before you do any damage to the power takeoff components. Is there an engagement mechanism for the auger and impeller, or do they run continuously?

Hi,

be careful, if the engine over revs it may just explode. These engines are very picky if over sped and easily blow up.
Your problem may be a broken throttle control rod, have look at that first. If the control rods are fine and in place it could be the fly wheel governor is worn out.

SOURCE: Yard Machines 22 inch mower, I dumped it on its

if you bent the blade most likely you bent the crankshaft too.
Remove the spark plug and pull the rope and remove excess oil from the spark plug hole
check the spark plug for spark if you have none then a flywheel key is sheered a more in depth fix.
If you get it started you may notice a whole lota vibration due to a bent crank shaft or maybe not?

From what you describe it sounds like the line may be tangled, remove the rewind housing in order to inspect the line up close.

Either there is a belt or a chain off, or the linkage became disconnected or there is a pin sheared. Take one of the three. If you have power spinning like you said then those are your choices! Best of luck to you. Hope you beat the weather!

Fix ariens snowblower 520 dies when engaging the auger lever


Your front end is jammed. Its either frozen or there is a rock or something jamming it up. Before you start engine reach down chute and turn back impeller that throws the snow out of blower. Should turn freely. when its free its fixed. You will probably need a new belt.

Auger blades are spinning


sound like you might have 2 problems. If auger doesn't engage in heavy snow you probably just have ice accumulation inside the impeller. Dont try to engage until impeller is cleared of snow (shut off and unplug spark plug before cleaning) Second if blades are spinning than you must have hit something in your path and broke the shear bolt (about 2 bucks at hardware shop) remove the old bolt and replace it and it should work again if this is the problem. Good luck.

Swisher 27" snowblower front impellers turn free


Hi Craig,

Most snowblowers incorporate "shear pins" between the motor and auger. A shear pin looks similar to a nut and bolt or pin that couples the drive to the auger - but it designed to break or shear off to prevent damage to the auger or motor in the event of a jam or overload. They look like these:

12_21_2012_2_20_37_am.jpg

12_21_2012_2_20_57_am.jpg

Only the shear pin recommended for your particular brand and model snowblower should be used. Under no circumstances should a regular bolt or other steel pin be used instead of a shear pin. Check your manual or consult with Swisher to determine the correct shear pin for your snow blower.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Hi, I will try to help you with this problem. I think the problem might be an adjustment issue. If you take the cover, usually plastic, situated just in front of the engine housing, you will see the belts and pulleys. Without the engine running, press on the auger/impeller lever, and if you look inside you should see how the belt is made to engage the auger pulley. Probably by an idler pulley that pushes on the belt to make it tight to turn the big pulley. That is the most popular way, it is to loosen the bolt on the idler pulley and push it towards the belt so it applies more pressure to the belt to turn the auger pulley and tighten the bolt. There could also be an adjustment on the linkage that might be adjustable. Another possibility is that the belt is worn and is riding on the bottom of the pulleys therefore not providing enough friction to turn the pulleys properly. I think if you take a good look at that system you will comprehend it. Hope this is helpful. All the best and good luck. I will gladly answer any other questions.

Ariens snowblower impeller not throwing snow


Sounds like you have a broken or partially broken shear pin in the auger.Check along the auger[machine off]and see if there is what looks like a bolt anywhere along the auger shaft.If there is [and there will be] remove and inspect it and you will see why the auger is not working.Next time,never clean out a chute or auger while the engine is running,people loose limbs this way.
