SOURCE: I have a welcome mat jammed in the auger, need to remove auger

Can you take a sharp knife and cut the mat loose? You might have a hard job taking the auger apart with something wedged in it. Even if you use a hacksaw blade with out the saw frame. anything to work it loose. pour boiling water on it will make it cut easier if it's rubber.

Mtd yardmachine snow blower 305 cc auger wont turn


This is a fairly frequent problem that is easily fixed. What happened was the snowblower's auger was either overloaded or got jammed (ice, debris - something other than snow). Rather than twist, damage or break the auger itself, an inexpensive part called a "shear pin" is designed to fail. A shear pin employed between the auger sleeve and drive shaft that is inside the sleeve. You may have broken one if one side of the auger spins) or both (if both sides of the auger spins). Purchase several replacements for your particular machine to have on hand. Do NOT replace s shear pin (or shear bolt) with a regular bolt under any circumstances! Check the video linked below on how to replace the shear pins. Good luck!

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 snow king 5hp snow blower. while clearing snow, the snow only oozes out the shoot.


IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A TWO STAGE SNOWBLOWER WITH ONLY ONE STAGE WORKING. I BET THAT YOUR PROBLEM IS THE AUGER IS TURNING BUT THE IMPELLER BLADE THAT IS BEHIND THE AUGER HAS PROBABLY JAMMED UP WITH SOMETHING AND IS SPINNING ON THE SHAFT. YOU WILL HAVE TO REACH BACK AND GRAB IT AND TRY TO TURN IT ON THE SHAFT BY HAND.MAKE SURE THE BLOWER IF OFF!!!! . IF YOU CAN TURN IT BY HAND EASILY IT HAS EITHER BROKE A SHEAR PIN OR BOLT OR SOME TIMES THEY WILL TACK WELD THEM TO THEM TO THE SHAFT. GOOD LUCK

adjust the auger cable so its tight, it most likely got loose. The adjustment is on the back of the machine theres 2 screws just make the auger cable tighter. this should solve your problem
