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.

The auger is no longer turning. How do I fix it?


Check for broken shear bolts first. Then, move on and check the auger belt. Finally, if all those are ok, check the gear housing on the auger drive shaft (right in front, between the two auger blades).

The impeller is turning but the blades are not. Belt seems ok


Depending on your make of snowblower, At the impeller there is usually 1 or 2 shear pins or bolts circled in red. If the impeller and the impeller shaft are turning but the augers are not, the gear may be stripped inside the gear box circled in yellow or the keyway may have sheared between the auger gear and the auger shaft.

Auger does not turn


If the high speed impeller is turning, but the auger is not, there are 2 failure modes:
1. The sheer pin attaching the auger to the shaft has sheared. There is one shear pin on each side. This is an easy fix. Buy a new shear pin. Do NOT use a regular bolt.
2. The gear box between the 2 augers is broken.. This is an expensive fix and requires modderate skill for a DIY fix.

If the high speed impeller is not turning, it is likely the belt is broken between the engine and the blower. This is a relatively easy fix.

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.

I have a snow blower which will start up but it won't move forward in the snow nor will it push the snow. Not sure what is wrong. I can manually move the blade around that pushes the snow.


If you start the machine and the axles spin but the augers do not it is because the shear pins are broke. If you look closely you will see the the augers have shear bolts and nuts or shear pins. If you jam a piece of ice or a stick in the augers while they are spinning the bolts will shear so you do not damage the expensive augers or the worm drive gears. If the axle spins with the augers you may have torn up the front worm gear in the front of the auger intake. If you spin the small auger and the large auger moves but when you start and engage the auger nothing happens you will have to remove the under cover and inspect the drive belt pulleys for jammed or broken parts or more commonly broken drive belts.

I have a yard machine SnowKing model 31AS6BCE752 24". Worked fine last Tues eve, cleared the augers, etc, and put away. Wed morning when engaging augers, engine would stall or belt would smoke. ...


Turn the impeller by hand--does it turn freely? If not, suspect the auger or impeller bearings have seized. Does the impeller drive the auger through a right-angle gear box? If so, it could have failed internally. You will probably have to dis-assemble part of the mechanism to determine the frozen component(s). Hope this helps!

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
