Snowblower auger will not turn. When auger drive engaged, the belt smokes but auger does not turn.

the auger drive gearbox has failed and needs rebuild with new gears and lube

Auger does not stay engaged when the lever is released to turn the chute, even though the traction drive is still engaged. Very annoying when trying to clear snow. How can I remedy this? Thanks

Either two things come to mind, first I would check the shear pins. When a shear pin is broken, the auger turns but stops as soon as it hits a load (snow). The shaft is turning, but there's no mechanical connection between the shaft and the auger.

The second thing is the belt either needs adjusting or replaced. Belt adjustments should be checked before every winter and are simple to preform. When checking the drive and auger belts, look for glazed running surfaces, and cracking. Either sign means the belt(s) need replacing. Also if the belt(s) have streched beyond their normal adjustment.

Snowblower....auger takes time to get five will struggle to start spinning then eventually warms up and is fine....whats the issue?

It is most likely your auger drive belts. There are two of them, and they need to be replaced periodically. Your manual should describe in detail as to how to replace the belts. Always start by removing the spark plug wire.
Improper gearcase lubricant could also cause problems. Your manual should tell you specifically what to use in the gearcase, and how to fill it. Also look for grease fittings on the auger and use a low-temp grease to service those fittings.
Lastly; behind the auger is the impeller shaft. Reach in and see if it wiggles. If it does, then have your impeller bearing replaced.

Noma auger wont stop spinning when disengaged

Sounds like either the auger belt is jammed to tight or handle mechanism to engage/disengage is stuck in on position. I would remove belt cover to inspect auger belt and pulley first, then remove bottom cover and inspect auger engage apparatus. I think once you inspect the problem will be self explanatory. Good luck!

Auger belt on snowblower keeps breaking after about an hour of use, please help.

Try removing the drive belt and turning the auger by hand . If there is no problem it will turn freely by hand but if it feels tight check the auger tube for bends or dents that will restrict the free movement of the shaft. The next thing to check is the pulleys If they are "V" belts then check that you have the correct belt or the correct pulleys for the belt. A "V" belt is fitted correctly when the top most width of the belt is about 1/16 " above the rim of the pulleys . IN other words it just sticks out of the pulley. The pulley sides have to be smooth and not stepped as this creates different running speeds for different sections of the belt and that generates heat. Imagine a duel tyre wheel where one tyre is 2" larger than the other but both are running on the road . As there are different circumferences there fore different distances covered in one revolution Then one tyre is being dragged along. The same applies if the pulleys have steps in the sides from wear.. If it turns freely but feels lumpy then you will need to replace the bearings . Check inside the auger tube as there may be some thing like rope /cloth or wire jammed and acting like a brake.

Snowblower doesn't throw the snow very far, and every time I stop it, it takes a while for the auger to start turning fast enough to blow the snow. Feels like the torque isn't there. This is a Husqvarna...

The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn.
If you remove the cover (usually plastic) in the middle of the snow thrower and look at the belts.
Your operator's manual will show you how to remove the cover and check/change the belts.
The belt closest to the blower assembly drives the auger/blower and the belt closest to the engine drives the transmission.
With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the blower belt.
You should only be able to depress the long side 1/2 inch or less. More than that the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced.
On some older blowers you can adjust the tension pulley, but most made in the last 15 years, you can't.
The belt may be frayed on the edges or glazed causing it to slip (it is shiny on the sides of the belt) It may be torn and broke completely.
You can get parts for you Craftsman and most Husqvarana, MTD made models through You can also get parts through or your local dealer.
If you are unfamiliar with repairing machines take it to your local dealer. They will have a technician troubleshoot and repair the unit.
Feel free to ask any other questions to troubleshoot this problem farther. I know Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!

# 247.88690 belt slipping when under load . i dont see an adjustment

Unfortunately there is no adjustment for the auger drive belt on this machine. The belt is either good or bad. These belts do stretch over time. I have to replace my belt every 4 or 5 years.
BUT! Before you go out and get a new belt, get your manual and using the directions there, pull the cover off the belt area and take a close look at the belt, idler pulley, tensioning spring and cable from your handle. Be sure to follow all safety procedures like pulling the spark plug wire.
If you don't have your manual you can get one at Click on manuals and input your model number. You can read, download, and print your manual for free there.
Have someone engage the auger control (push down on the handle) Take you finger and push down on the long side of the belt (the side away from the idler). A good belt will have about 1/2 inch of play when pushed. More than that or if the belt is frayed, or glazed (very shiny) on the v-sides, replace it.
If the belt doesn't look bad, remove it and turn the auger pulley by hand. It should turn freely. If it doesn't, troubleshoot why and fix the real problem. No use buying a new belt and burn it up right away because something else is causing the belt to slip. (I have seen everything from a bad bearing to an old sock wrapped around the auger to cause the belt to burn out)

You can get a new one from Put in your model number or the part number below and you can order it and have it shipped right to your home. Your local MTD repair shop may have the belt also.
The MTD/Craftsman/Arnold part number for the belt is: 954-04050

How do i change the auger belt on a honda hs 70 snowblower?

Remove the auger belt housing cover 4 bolts (10mm), if you are lucky, you can take the belt out, or just cut it. The slide the new belt between the auger and driving pulleys. there is a break pad under the auger pulley, so have someone engage the auger handle and put the new belt on the auger pulley. Or you can remove 10 12mm bolts and separate the auger and engine. Even though you have remove more bolts, it is easier.

Ariens snowblower auger wont turn

Just finished repairing my ariens, 6 years old with aluminum gear box. Same problem encountered. The problem turns out to be the BRONZE gear driven by the worm shaft. Shear bolts did not shear and bronze gear broke about 5-6 teeth. This is why you can move the auger a half turn or so, there are no gears in one area of the gear and as the gear turns to engage the worm drive it will stop. The fix: the cast iron replacement from ariens! About $200 including shipping, got mine from Jack's Small Engine (MD). Fairly easy repair if you are mechanically inclined. Buy yourself a set of roll pin extractors ($20 from Sears), new roll pins, new woodruff key for shaft. You will also probably have to press 2nd stage impeller from shaft with hydraulic press & heat (took mine to my local auto garage). What stinks is ariens seemed to have admitted the design problem with the aluminum gearbox, yet won't help with repair cost! Anyways, I learned a lot about my snowblower for future repair (belt replacement)!
