Need a replacement impeller for Craftsman blower

All I need is a source for a replacement impeller: it's a plastic part ~4½" in diameter that threads onto a 5/16"-18 shaft. According to Sears, it's been discontinued. The model of the blower in question is Craftsman blower model 257.796351.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
The fan should just be a slide on the motor shaft snug fit with a metal clamp. The Blower wheel (fan) when they fail usually crack the center hub and no longer fit will on the motor shaft sungly so it contacts the blower housing as it rotates. That is why you hear all the noise. If the blower wheel / impeller as you referred to it does not fit tightly on the motor chaft then you will have to replace it. It should rotate in a true non-oscillation pattern like a circular saw blade. Any side to side movement during rotation is cause for replacement.

Here are 2 sources for a spare part:

I have a 3 yr old 26" snow blower. I ran the machine up against hard packed snow/ice and now the auger spins freely and all shear pins are still in place. The secondary impellor functions fine. I...

I am going to assume the belt is good if the impeller it running. You can check the belt by removing the plastic cover in the center of the snow blower.
With the unit safely turned off reach in and turn the blower by hand while putting a little resistance with your other hand on the impeller. Does the shaft from the impeller to the gear box turn?
Does the shaft that the augers are attached to turn? If the impeller shaft turns but the auger shaft doesn't, the gearbox in the front is bad and will have to be replaced.
I the auger shaft turns, check your shear pins again. Sometimes they will break but still stay stuck in the holes. Actually take one out and check it.
If it is a Craftsman you can get a manual from and parts from You will need the model number of the snowblower. The number looks like 247.123456.
Any other questions please ask. Do't forget to rate this answer!

My blower is running extra high and hard. so high that it shakes the cap off. how can i tame it down. model 51587

Remove the bottom of the blower or vac and see if any blades are broken on the plastic fan blade, known as an impeller. If a blade is sheared off, this could be the source of your noise and shaking. This part will need to be replaced. I've just ordered one and will be replacing mine when it comes in.

Don't know how to attach the vacume

The discharge tube and collector bag will replace the blower nozel ( where the air comes out when blowing). The large diameter tube ( pick up tube) will attatch to the impeller side. There is a plastic gaurd on a spring loaded hinge. Open the gaurd and attatch the large tube.

Can't figure out how to attach the vacuumm to the blower of our Craftsman Gas Blower/Vac #7179474

I know people buy this equipment to blow and vacuum. The main problem is if you vacuum up something that hits the impeller and breaks off one of the fins; you will have to take it somewhere to get the impeller replaced.
I would stick with it using it as a blower and get the rake out to get around the bushes.
Good Day.

Is there a collection bag that will work with a Craftsman electric blower/vac. A bag that fits over a trash can with an 8' hose similar to the Black and Decker bv-006

I have not heard of one for that unit. Plus I would not use it for vacuuming any way. All you need is for an acorn or piece of wood to hit the impeller.
It would break a couple of fins off the impeller. This would make the blower vibrate like crazy and you will not want to hold on to it. Plus the cost of repairs would exceed the cost of a new one.
Good Day.
