Snowblower Treads not turning

I have a 5hp 23" Craftsman Snowblower which just had its traction belt break. When I opened up the bottom of the snowblower there was a loose spring in the bottom. I cannot figure out where it is supposed to go, but the treads still do not spin. It looks like one end would attach to the pulley which should cause tension on the belt, but I can't figure out where the other end would attach. Does anyone know?

The traction belt on my Toro 824XL 38083 broke and the new belt came off after only 10 minutes. The tensioner was in the correct position with the belt on the inside.


My first question is how old is the machine? Now if it consumed the belt in short order I would start by checking to see if there is any gear lube left in the transmission as that does need to be changed and topped off periodically as seepage does occur and if the unit binds up the belt will not stay attached. Now given this is a Snowblower by all means check the Bearings on the end of the Auger and make sure they are not binding since even a new machine can get some moisture in those bearings and they will not turn. Then make sure the bearings on the wheels have not been compromised and are binding up the unit as well. In front of the Friction Disc there is a Hub Assembly and that as well could be binding so with the belt off see if it turns freely.

Tecumseh engine snowblower, will only run if I keep pushing the primer bulb, Why?


Take off the screw that holds the carburetor bowl on and clean the holes with a needle and blow air through them. These holes feed gas from thr bowl into the carb and may be clogged.

We have a yardworks snowblower and when not using the wheels always lock up. how do you unlock them without turning on snowblower.


Had the same issue and found out that the wheels lock when the motor isn't running and the accelerator handle is engaged. I still had both handles tied down from transporting home and it rolled fine after they were untied. Hope that helps

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

Briggs and Straton 8 hp, craftsman snowblower stalls


Sounds like you coil is over heating after running a few minutes. The windings are seperating, then when it sools they make contact again. Try replacing the coil.

You may have a bad clutch assembly. Check it and then see if the belt is tight enough.
