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.

Snow thrower auger won't turn


One of the grip levers should engage a clutch that controls the augers. The other grip lever should engage a clutch to drive the wheels. Figure out which is which, and track the linkage from that lever down to the gearbox between the augers and the impeller. See if there's an adjustment you can make there.

If not... the gearbox may be damaged, possibly by hitting a solid object with hardened bolts in the place of your shear pins. ALWAYS use soft shear pins!

Mtd yardmachine snow blower 305 cc auger wont turn


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.

Yardworks. Why won't augers turn?


Does the drive belt still work or is it broken or knocked off. Check your shear pin in the ends of augers and pulleys. Sounds like broken shear pin.

Hi,
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...

I have a snow blower which will start up but it won't move forward in the snow nor will it push the snow. Not sure what is wrong. I can manually move the blade around that pushes the snow.


If you start the machine and the axles spin but the augers do not it is because the shear pins are broke. If you look closely you will see the the augers have shear bolts and nuts or shear pins. If you jam a piece of ice or a stick in the augers while they are spinning the bolts will shear so you do not damage the expensive augers or the worm drive gears. If the axle spins with the augers you may have torn up the front worm gear in the front of the auger intake. If you spin the small auger and the large auger moves but when you start and engage the auger nothing happens you will have to remove the under cover and inspect the drive belt pulleys for jammed or broken parts or more commonly broken drive belts.

Replaced shear pins on right side standing at the controls, auger still does not turn?


does the 2nd stage auger turn? if the shear pin broke you may have ripped your belt part also. Take the belt cover off and inspect the belt assembly.

Auger turning slow. Auger turns initially but auger stops turning when it hits the snow. Shear pins look ok, belt looks ok. Shear pins look intact. Could they be broken inside where I can't see.


sure sounds like a shear pin, usually one end will be missing if it is broke. They are simple to replace but get one that is rated for your machine to avoid damage. Can you turn it freely without the engine running?? if so, it's the shear pin
