First check that the purge valve is not engaged. Usually a small rod sticking out the back plate of the unit toward the right side. It should be pushed in.
Next check your drive belt. Best bet is to remove the deck and lay under the unit. Check for locked up pulleys and that the belt is seated properly on all the pulleys and that the belt is not stretched, cracked, or burnt. Make sure the belt gets taught when brake/clutch is released.
Lastly, there are keys in the drive axles. I have never seen one fail but they do get lost on occassion when the wheels are removed.

Hi, make sure you are using a genuine pin and if so check the back of the prop where the pin sits for wear, regards Phil.

Changed rear flat on ariens 42 in riding mower put tire back on now mower will no move any more. worked fine when I pulled it up to take tire off

I feel you have lost the shear pin that goes on your axle. The shear pin goes in the little groove in the wheel It may have fallen out when you pulled the wheel off.There are also safety pins in the belt drive pulleys

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.

Swisher 27" snowblower front impellers turn free

Hi Craig,

Most snowblowers incorporate "shear pins" between the motor and auger. A shear pin looks similar to a nut and bolt or pin that couples the drive to the auger - but it designed to break or shear off to prevent damage to the auger or motor in the event of a jam or overload. They look like these:



Only the shear pin recommended for your particular brand and model snowblower should be used. Under no circumstances should a regular bolt or other steel pin be used instead of a shear pin. Check your manual or consult with Swisher to determine the correct shear pin for your snow blower.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Check shear pins in the blades . Tyr turning by hand with power shut off. If you can turn by hand then I am sure the shear pins are broken. Check drive belts as well.

Yes, you have a shear pin and that is probably the problem...
The shear pin often will not fall out and look like a normal piece but in fact be broken...
The shear pin usually is in the main shaft from the transmission to the auger drive...
Some are right on the auger its self...look around you will find it...

your shear pin(s) are broken on that side they will look o.k. but are snapped off inside drive them out with a large nail or center-punch,don't use a regular bolt to replace the shear pin as they will fit,because if it gets plugged again the gearbox will be your next expensive shear pin to replace

Auger wont spin.

sounds like you broke the shear pins? They are bolts that run through the auger/shaft and should be gold in color. DO NOT replace them with anything but a shear pin that is made for your machine. Simply use a small punch to remove what is left in the hole and line up the shaft with the auger and install the new pin.....

Check for water in gas. If you sheared pin cause timing to be off and it might backfire and I would take to shop
