I have a Yamaha ys 626 snowblower - how do I fix a non moving auger?


Most snow blowers have a "shear pin", (or roll pin) that links the auger to the drive shaft. It is there in case you strike something hard with the auger. The shear pin will break and protect the auger, the engine, and the operator. The shear pin can be purchased anyplace that services snow blowers, and it can be replaced by the owner.

Auger replacement


Here is a manual for your snowblower. Yes, It's the same. http://download.sears.com/own/spin_prod_674132601.pdf . Go to page 30, it a parts diagram of the blower and housing.

You will need to remove the pulley #66 from the back of the unit, the bearing retainer #1, and the auger bearing bolts #18. The whole unit will then slide out of the housing. You can then remove the augers and then take the worm gear apart. That will get you to the auger shaft.

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.

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_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!

My 9hp sears snowblower doesnt through snow anymore and the belts are fine. I have tried tightening the cable for the auger lever with no success. Is there a friction plate to change ??


Usually on the bottom of those there is a scraper plate on the bottom behind the auger this is made to wear out check to see if needs replacing.

Snowblower doesn't throw the snow very far, and every time I stop it, it takes a while for the auger to start turning fast enough to blow the snow. Feels like the torque isn't there. This is a Husqvarna...


The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn.
If you remove the cover (usually plastic) in the middle of the snow thrower and look at the belts.
Your operator's manual will show you how to remove the cover and check/change the belts.
The belt closest to the blower assembly drives the auger/blower and the belt closest to the engine drives the transmission.
With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the blower belt.
You should only be able to depress the long side 1/2 inch or less. More than that the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced.
On some older blowers you can adjust the tension pulley, but most made in the last 15 years, you can't.
The belt may be frayed on the edges or glazed causing it to slip (it is shiny on the sides of the belt) It may be torn and broke completely.
You can get parts for you Craftsman and most Husqvarana, MTD made models through searspartsdirect.com. You can also get parts through jackssmallengines.com or your local dealer.
If you are unfamiliar with repairing machines take it to your local dealer. They will have a technician troubleshoot and repair the unit.
Feel free to ask any other questions to troubleshoot this problem farther. I know Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!

HALF OF AUGER NOT WORKING


When you got something caught in the auger, the shear-pin probably did it s job and broke, to save the gear box. Remove the old shear pin and install a new one
