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!

My yardmachine snow blower 8hp auger won't turn. I replaced the cable and belt but it still won't turn. What else could be wrong?


Check the auger shear pins replace if necessary with correct parts(not regular bolts).
If auger and the impeller are not turning your cable is out of adjustment.
If only the auger doesn't turn, and the shear pins are ok then the brass/bronze gear has shredded which is why proper shear pins must be used. Donyboy73 on youtube show how to replace that gear on an older but similar MTD affiliated blower.

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

My MTD 10hp auger will not turn. I adjusted the auger cable by tightening the bolt on the handle. I disconnected the spark plug and checked the shear pins on both sides of the auger. They are both still...


Yes there are 2 belts one for the drive and one for the auger. If you remove the cover on top that is located between the engine and the auger housing you can check the belts. The auger belt has come off the pulley or is broken. Hope this helps you out. Best regards and good luck.
