Question about Craftsman 16" High Garden Tractor Snow and Dozer Blade

Open Question

Snowblower Auger rubber has worn out basically after 2months of u

I bought a single stage craftsman snowthrower from sears on Feb 12th, 2007 and less than a yr later i took it to the repair center coz, it was stalling out. The tech indicates that water got into the carburator and also the rubber on the auger has worn all the way to the steel......which needs replacement and it's gonna cost $212 to repair. Sears tells me that my manufacters warranty is not gonna cover this. How common is this problem?? Is this a bad model snowthrower? What's a reliable and durable name brand snowthrower out in the market today??

    Hey Jer! Ty for the reply. I just gave in to the sears repair people and told them to go ahead and fix it....they told me it's gonna cost about $158.

    How come the rubber on the auger wears out so quickly??.....i've really used only about 10 times.

    Jer - u said that the rubber will wear out quickly if the snowblower is not operated properly. What does operating properly mean??.....i just push it up and down the driveway and sidewalk the way u would with a lawn mower. What's the proper way to operate this machine? thanks.

SOURCE: Auger stopprd working on an MTD snowblower.

The manual has a step by step procedure for adjusting the cables for the auger, speed selector and drivewheels. One socket wrench and about 10 min should do it.

My Yardworks is an MTD product and it's manual should be similar to yours. If you lost it, you can download it from MTD's site.

Otherwise, for older craftsman routers you might have some luck here.
Here's one that's pretty close.

I have an MTD single-stage snow blower that I replace the other the cable and the belt and under a load it's still not throwing snow


There should be 2 holes on the handle that engages the auger belt, use the top hole as it will increase the belt tension.
Check the condition of the rubber auger's rubber paddles as they are subject to wear and should be replaced if any signs of excessive
wear is present.

I have a MTD snowblower yard machine.how to adjust


There should be metal shoes on the side of the snowblower. They have adjustment bolts that allow the auger housing to move up and down. loosen them and adjust to how close you want it to the ground. It also depends on the model. This process only applies to large self propelled models which are a two stage snowthrower. if its a small single stage there is usually no adjustment.

Where is the auger sheer bolt


Figure 9 on Page 11 of the manual (linked below) shows the location of the auger shear pins. Do NOT substitute bolts for shear pins!

Good luck!

Have a craftsmand 24" snowthrower


If the motor runs well, the two most common causes of this are the drive belt is worn and/or the shear pins are broke.
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.
If you don't have a copy you can get the manual through managemyhome.com
You will need the model number off the snowblower. It is usually located on the bottom right hand corner of the frame (from the handle side)
The model number looks like 247.123456.
The belt closest to the blower assembly drives the auger/blower and the belt closest to the engine drives the transmission. It sounds like you need to inspect the blower belt.
With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the 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.
Replace the belt if it is worn, stretched or frayed
The shear pins are located on the auger in the front of the machine. Your newer Craftsman has four. If you don't now about them look in your operator's manual for the location. You need all four for the snowblower to work well. Replace the missing ones.
You can get parts for you Craftsman and most MTD made models through searspartsdirect.com. With other makes you can get parts through jackssmallengines.com
If you are unfamiliar with repairing machines you can get your snow blower repaired by taking it to your local Sears.
They will have a technician troubleshoot and repair the unit.

My Craftsman 5.0 horsepower 5 speed forward, 2 speed reverse snowblower has a problem with the auger. After using it this morning working fine now the auger isn't turning. It's about 8 years old and has...


If the blower (impeller) turns and the auger doesn't there is a 90% chance you broke the shear bolts that protect the auger gear box.

Look at your auger and you will find the bolts shown at the arrows in this picture are missing. Some snowthrowers will have two bolts and others like the new Craftsman will have four.
You can get new ones at your local mower repair shop, your local Sears mall store, or online at sears.com.
Use shear pins or shear bolts not regular bolts. The shear bolts are designed to break off so you don't tear out the front gear box.
