Sounds like the key that locks the wheel to the axle shaft is missing. Look in a parts manual that came with the snowblower to see the key. Should be with the transmission break down or the wheel and/hub breakdown. If you do not have a parts manual depending on what brand and model you have, you should be able to find it on line.

SOURCE: will not engage foward or back .

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 ).

Back wheels have a gear that connects to the drive chain. on each side. those spin.
The front ones which are Idlers do not spin as the idler wheel as a bushing in it that allows free motion on the shaft without resistance. Use a nylock nut with Locktight for starters. The try that.

Hope this helps. -Jeff anchorage small engine repair.

SOURCE: I need the owners manual for an Ariens Snowblower

You might need to change the friction wheel. I looked up your model number and the part number for the friction disc is PN# 240394. You might be able to get the part locally from your small engine repair shop.
To replace the disc you will need to drain the oil and place some plastic over the gas tank and put the cap on so no gas will leak out. Then you will have tip the blower forward so it is setting on the augers.
Then remove the bolts on the access cover on underside . Once removed you will have to remove the wheel and see what else you will to remove. It is pretty easy to figure it out. If you have to take out the rod that moves the friction disc from side to side (gear shift rod) MAKE SURE IT IS IN PLACE AND WORKING BEFORE REASSEMBLING. Put in fresh oil and remove plastic. It should be up and running.

Good luck let me know if this helps.

Hi dwva, I think you have the belt on properly seeing the other gears work fine. The difference between 1st and reverse can be as little as 1 half in on the drive wheel. It depends on which side of center is the friction wheel riding. Remove bottom pan with the machine in 2nd or 3rd gear notice which side of center is the friction wheel riding. (the friction wheel is the one with a rubber outer ring). Now put it in 1st, is it on the same side of center? There is an adjustment on that linkage, adjust so in 1st is on the same side of center. Happy New Year, hope that helps.

How to take axel out of rear wheel 2009 Yamaha 950 have muffler off wheel nut off but doesn't want to come off need help please


Undo the axle nut..the brake lever,and the brake support arm,then drive the bolt from the right to the left using the ratchet handle and a beating device.
The tire then is just sitting on the gear mesh,pull it from the right ,and it drops right off

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!

Steering pulling right


Hi Anonymous, top of the food chain rear wheel alignment, bottom feeders, abnormal front tire wear, loose spokes, neck bearings loose axel, off center loading, improper tire pressure, unbalanced wheel, wheel out of round, excessive wheel bearing end play. Take your pick and good luck.

Won't just stay in one gear. constantly doing gear changes on its own. Hardrock. Rear set, reguardless of which front gear.


This happens when the back wheel is not aligned properly with the chain. As the wheel turns the chain is being pulled to one side causing it to slip to the next set of cogs. To solve the problem first you need to loosen the wheel by opening the 2 nuts on the axel. If the chain slips inwards towards the wheel you need to move the front part of the back wheel to the left from a view point behind the bike. If it slips outwards away from the wheel then you need to move the front of the back wheel to the right as viewed from behind the bike. When the chain and cogs of the rear wheel are lined up in a straight line the problem should be solved.

Right rear axel makes noise


You need to jack it up, And put it on jack stands. Its a safty thing. Next spin the tires with the engine, Put it in drive. let the Brake off slow. Don't forget to block the front tires with a brick, or a 4x4 or 2 pieces of fire wood. Put one under each front tire. Now run the engine 30 to 35 miles per hour.With the tires still on your Rover. Pay close attn to the noise as the tires spin. Now pull the wheels and pull the rotor or drum off. Now if its a bearing you will here it. Be sure to let off the gas pedal very slowly so you won't hurt the drive train. We checked wheel balance, Wheel bearings, Brake noise, even out of round tires can be spoted while running the tires on and off to do the test. its like driving it down the road but you can get down there and look and hear things. I sure hope this is helpfull to you.
