If you have a torch, carefully cut off bent pieces.

SOURCE: on my two stage snow blower--main auger stops turning .

Hi, I figured out the problem. The gear transfer case between the augers must be broke. The auger spins slowly until it hits snow and then stops-- The discharge fan continues to spin fast. I will try to get a local handyman to fix it or else but a new machine, this one must be at least 15-16 years old.
I thank you for your help, it is a great service. ojohn

SOURCE: auger on my snow blower won't turn.

First take a look at the shear pins they will be located on the augers going thru the auger and auger shaft, if they look ok then you need to take the belt off, with the belt off try to turn the im peller by hand. If the impeller does not turn then you need to look to see if something is stuck in the impeller or in the auger. If nothing is stuck in between anything then I would have to say it's going to be the gear box. If the impeller turns then look to see if the auger is turning also while turning the impeller. If the auger doesn't turn then it's probably the gear box. If it does turn then you have an issue at the pulleys

SOURCE: Do I have to split

No. If you have someone squeeze the auger handle, that will allow you to remove the belt. You'll need to do the same to put it back on. Make sure to put the belt on the bottom pulley and not over one of the belt guides otherwise you will end up replacing the new belt also.

SOURCE: unable to remove hub 02438900

I also had this problem. I actually pulled the ears off of the hub using 2 different pullers. I ended up heating the hub and hiting the shaft through the hub with a small sledge. It took 45 minutes. Then I tried to remove the impeller from the shaft. Not a chance! Both pins out but it would not budge. This is a customers machine and it needed a gearbox. I'm going to end up putting an impeller on it as I can't get it off the old shaft.

I have a craftsman snowblower that I replaced the auger bearing on assuming that was what was causing my pulley to wobble. The wobble is still there. Is this going to wear my belt or bearing out?


I am wondering if your pulley is bent. It will wobble if it is. Is it possible a piece of ice got jammed into it. Is the auger shaft bent? There has to be a reason it wobbles. It will eventually wear something out if not repaired.

I have an older traeger and it doesnt seem to heat up on high mode. it has 2 fans and both work but one seems to knock now and again. when i cook chicken on high it will take 2 hours to cook.


The Traeger website at http://www.traegergrills.com/ has an FAQ about grills not reaching the appropriate temperature and how to adjust the augur to fix the problem. Here's what they say:
Q. I've been noticing that my grill temperature keeps dropping lower. What is the problem?

A. You need to "true" your auger. To do this:

  1. Run the unit out of pellets.
  2. Remove the allen screw and nut out of the auger and motor shaft.
  3. Try spinning the auger shaft over the motor shaft. The auger shaft should spin freely over the motor shaft without binding.
  4. If the auger binds, loosen the 7/16th inch bolts on the motor bracket and move bracket until you can rotate the auger shaft over the motor shaft. Then re-tighten 7/16th inch bolts. Make sure auger shaft still rotates over motor shaft, or repeat step 4 again until it does.
  5. Reattach auger and motor shafts using the screw and nut which you removed in step 2.
Hope this helps

Treager BBQ will not get hot at all.


Ensure your fire box is cleaned out and ventilation holes at the base are not obstructed. Ensure the induction fan is operating and moving air into the fire box.

According to Treager FAQ:

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!

I have an Ariens 926LE snowblower. The blower spins but the auger spins slowly. It barely throws snow. Some times the auger stops spinning. Shear pins are fine.


Hi, The blower spins at full speed? If it does the belt, pulley, and shaft are good. Look at the shaft from the fan to the gear box while it's running and that shaft should be turning at the speed of the fan.
If the blower spins at full speed and the auger doesn't the most likely problem is the worm gear transmission from the blower shaft to the auger shaft.
A good way to visually inspect this is: With the machine turned off and the spark plug wire unhooked go to the front and try to rotate the auger by hand. If the gear box is good you will only be able to move the auger less than an inch. If the box is bad you will be able to move the auger a lot farther. While you are there recheck your shear pins.
You can also remove the blower drive belt and have someone turn the pulley by hand while you watch the auger. Put resistance on the auger with your gloved hand. If the box is good the auger will move smoothly in you hand. If it is bad, it will ****, move roughly, or stop.
While the other person is turning the pulley and you have some resistance on the auger look closely at the shaft running from the gearbox back to the blower. On some models there is a connecting sleeve and the roll pin that connects the sleeve to the shaft and gearbox will break.
If the gearbox is bad, it will have to be replaced as a complete unit.
