SNOW BLOWER FRICTION WHEEL WON'T DISENGAGE

I have a Craftsman model 536.887251 snow thrower. After having a problem with the drive I found a tension spring had fallen off. I replaced it but the Friction Wheel is still engaged with the Swing Plate. Only after exerting downward pressure on the Swing Plate with a screw driver can I spin the wheel freely. Everything looks like it is in place and there are no broken parts. Is there any way to adjust the swing plate in order to get the proper clearance for the Friction Drive Wheel? It aligned with the tabs and the cable is adjusted.

Use a good quality silicon lube and spray into the top of the cable. Do this until it comes out the bottom, a little at a time. Also, spray all pivot points. Don't use WD-40, it will freeze. Lube everything at the end of winter and again before winter.

Snowblower drive will stop unexpectly when snowblowing


Mine was doing the same thing and I found that if I put it in reverse for a little while it would be ok again for a short time. I found also that it did this more often when the snow was heavy and wet which makes me think that the rubber drive wheel is getting wet and slipping. If you've brought it in to a shop and they've said that nothing could be found wrong, then it must be something that goes away by the time you get it there - water (I'm guessing).

Snow Thrower does not self-propel


Did you check under the handle area, near the blower itself for a transmission lever? This will engage & disengage the transmission.
