    Does the auger gear go on the left or right of the impeller gear?

Yes there are 2 belts one for the drive and one for the auger. If you remove the cover on top that is located between the engine and the auger housing you can check the belts. The auger belt has come off the pulley or is broken. Hope this helps you out. Best regards and good luck.

Both augers turn when not trying to clean snow,as soon as I try to use it and snow gets to the augers,only one auger moves on my ariens 520 snowblower


It sounds like the auger always turning is the auger engagement handle/line/connections are not adjusted correctly. They/it is too tight causing the auger to engage before it should. It may be up at the handle where you loosen a jam nut, screw in or out a threaded shaft, and retighten the jam nut. (If you have ever adjusted a bicycle brake it is similar.) (I have a craftsman, made by MTD, and I think I saw MTD also list Ariens.) Or it could be an adjustment somewhere else (but I'm not sure where).

As far as one auger moving and the other not, you may have a shear-pin (shear bolt as the manual calls them) on each side of the auger's shaft (my craftsman has one on each side), and the one on the side that stops turning is sheared off. (It moves without snow present due to the driveshaft inside the outer auger shaft turning, but it won't turn under load (snow).) You may confirm a sheared-pin by turning the machine off and try to turn the auger blade. If it turns somewhat easily, that's a bad shear pin. Remove the old shear pin. If the old one is as long as the new one, that aint the problem. The shear pin in the image is one kind. Mine appear as a straight bolt (no grooves), threaded the entire length. You will have to rotate the auger blade until it aligns with the hole in the shaft. Use a nail that fits and rotate the blade until the nail goes in. Remove the nail and screw in the shear bolt:

The auger clutch control up at the handle looks like this:

Auger Control
  • To check the adjustment of the auger control, push forward the left hand clutch grip until the rubber bumper is compressed. There should be slack in the clutch cable.
  • Release the clutch grip. The cable should be straight. Make certain you can depress the auger control grip against the left handle completely.
  • If adjustment is necessary, loosen the hex jam nut and thread the cable in (for less slack) or out (for more slack). Recheck adjustment. Tighten the jam nut when correct adjustment is reached.
Here's another view of that:

I hope the above info helps you take care of both issues.

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.

Ariens st350 snow blower wont blow snow, augers wont spin


there is a bolt that goes thru auger and spinning shaft (look for a hole where it once was) holds the augers to the spinning shafts, it is called a shear pin, it is a safety feature, and made of softer metal, so if you pick up something too hard with the auger, it wont lock up the engine, or break engine crank shaft.find an ariens repair shop to purchase the shear pin so you get the right softness of metal.

Auger on ariens 522 turns when not engaged


the drive shaft that connects to the auger may be stuck in gear or depending on the wear and age rusted shut. I would check that before doing anything.

Auger on craftsman snowblower is very slow.how do i adjust idle


Not sure how long you have owned this machine but the auger does not turn fast. It 's job is to chop up the snow and push it back to the impeller. The impeller is the round plate in back of the augers that actually throws the snow out the chute. That turns fast. Check to be sure the shear pins are not broken. Shut the machine off. Wait for the augers to stop spinning and then try to turn the augers by hand. If they spin on the shaft then the shear pins are broken-replace them by using original equipment shear pins.

Go to weingartz web page and you will find the diagram and parts you need. I have a TRS22 with the same problem. You will need a worm gear, gasket/gear case, and a shaft key. I need to order the same parts. take appart the auger first you might need more parts

I have an Ariens 926LE snowblower. The blower spins but the auger spins slowly. It barely throws snow. Some times the auger stops spinning. Shear pins are fine.


Hi, The blower spins at full speed? If it does the belt, pulley, and shaft are good. Look at the shaft from the fan to the gear box while it's running and that shaft should be turning at the speed of the fan.
If the blower spins at full speed and the auger doesn't the most likely problem is the worm gear transmission from the blower shaft to the auger shaft.
A good way to visually inspect this is: With the machine turned off and the spark plug wire unhooked go to the front and try to rotate the auger by hand. If the gear box is good you will only be able to move the auger less than an inch. If the box is bad you will be able to move the auger a lot farther. While you are there recheck your shear pins.
You can also remove the blower drive belt and have someone turn the pulley by hand while you watch the auger. Put resistance on the auger with your gloved hand. If the box is good the auger will move smoothly in you hand. If it is bad, it will ****, move roughly, or stop.
While the other person is turning the pulley and you have some resistance on the auger look closely at the shaft running from the gearbox back to the blower. On some models there is a connecting sleeve and the roll pin that connects the sleeve to the shaft and gearbox will break.
If the gearbox is bad, it will have to be replaced as a complete unit.

Ariens snow blower. I have a model 5520. the problem is that the tines won't spin. I checked the pins and they were both good. Sometimes,i t spins for a few seconds, but stops. I checked the oil...


it sounds to me like the gears inside may have been stripped at some time. the only way to find out is to remove the small gear cover on the front of the machine between the two augers or empty the oil and turn the auger while looking through the oil fill hole with a flashlight.

Auger on my snow blower won't turn.


First take a look at the shear pins they will be located on the augers going thru the auger and auger shaft, if they look ok then you need to take the belt off, with the belt off try to turn the im peller by hand. If the impeller does not turn then you need to look to see if something is stuck in the impeller or in the auger. If nothing is stuck in between anything then I would have to say it's going to be the gear box. If the impeller turns then look to see if the auger is turning also while turning the impeller. If the auger doesn't turn then it's probably the gear box. If it does turn then you have an issue at the pulleys

On my two stage snow blower--main auger stops turning .


Hi, I figured out the problem. The gear transfer case between the augers must be broke. The auger spins slowly until it hits snow and then stops-- The discharge fan continues to spin fast. I will try to get a local handyman to fix it or else but a new machine, this one must be at least 15-16 years old.
I thank you for your help, it is a great service. ojohn
