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 model 9400sx Eskimo ice auger with engine model#1e8xs.0464bc it's a 37.7 cc Emak made July 01 what is the proper oil to gas mixture for this unit? Thank you!


probably on the petrol cap as a 50:1
If not any where between 20:1 to 50:1 will run
only 2 stroke oil ( not engine oil)
watch the smoke from the exhaust and the correct mix is just visible smoke at rpms
smoky will be too much oil(20:1) and no smoke will be too little oil(60:1)

Why does my ice auger want to keep spinning and wont stop when you pull the cord it turns the auger


Pulling the cord will only start the engine. Your problem is with the centrifugal clutch. Check the clutch for broken springs. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

What year is a model 76 jiffy ice auger


The model 76 ice auger was made over a number of years and is probably still be in production. If it has a Jiffy engine, it was made before 2011 ("2500 series"). If it has a Tecumseh engine, it's 2011 or newer. Your best bet for getting the age is to find the serial number on the auger or the engine and contacting the manufacturer.

Kenmore model number 253.55693400 when I push the ice dispenser tab the motor to push ice is on, but not pushing ice out.


You have an auger type of ice dispenser, so when you say you hear the motor is on, do you mean it is turning the auger? Take out the ice bin and close the door, push the dispense button and then open the door quickly to see if the auger is turning. If is is then dump your ice bin and let it sit out until it is completely defrosted and dry. Reinstall the ice bin and put the lever down. And see if that will clear the problem. The auger motor is not that strong and if you get any ice build up under the auger it will stop working. So defrosting and drying will normally clear it up.

I have a yard machine SnowKing model 31AS6BCE752 24". Worked fine last Tues eve, cleared the augers, etc, and put away. Wed morning when engaging augers, engine would stall or belt would smoke. ...


Turn the impeller by hand--does it turn freely? If not, suspect the auger or impeller bearings have seized. Does the impeller drive the auger through a right-angle gear box? If so, it could have failed internally. You will probably have to dis-assemble part of the mechanism to determine the frozen component(s). Hope this helps!

Hello Randy. I can talk you through making adjustments to your Jiffy ice auger engine.
1. Read through the whole list before you start adjusting.
2. Close both jets GENTLY
3. Open the Low speed 1/4 turn
4. Open high speed jet 1 1/4 turn
5. Start engine.
6. Adjust low speed until idling smoothly.
7. Open her up wide open.
8. Adjust High speed until engine transitions smoothly from idle to high speed without bogging.
9. Shut engine off. Let it cool.
10. Once engine is cold. Fire it up and let it idle for 30 secs. Open it up wide open again. Adjust if necassary.

NOTE 1: The trick with the Jiffy's is to tune them during cold (ice fishing) weather.
NOTE 2: Low speed screw,the one on the left.
NOTE 3: High speed on the right.

Good luck ice fishing! Regards, Joe
