Question about Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
First thing I would check is to make sure the traction drive belt didn't fall off or break. To do this remove the plastic shroud between the engine and the snow chute. The traction belt is the one closest to the engine.If it isn't broke Make sure it is on the upper and lower pulleys.

it is possible the engine is starving for fuel, so essentially it is a carburetor problem with fuel mixture.
Check and see if your carburetor has mixture adjustment needles, there may be an adjustment possible to fix this problem.
Also, sometimes a tiny vent hole in the carb caseing gets clogged causing the engine to run rough or stall.
Does your engine seem to run better if you close the Choke ?
Hope this helps you.

Sounds like you are hitting the governor. Watch the arms at the carb when you move it to full throttle. The arm should hit a screw. Turn this screw clockwise, until the reving stops.

yes you can adjust the throttle cable, did you leave gas in it over the season, if you did this is definitley the problem, dump out the gas and pour new.

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.
