The shaft has shier pins that break when an object gets caught in the auger. This prevents further damage. You will need to replace that pin. Make sure you stop the blower, unplug the spark plug before working on it. The pin holds the auger to the shaft. Turn the auger until you see the hole through the shaft and insert a new shier pin.

The auger is no longer turning. How do I fix it?


Check for broken shear bolts first. Then, move on and check the auger belt. Finally, if all those are ok, check the gear housing on the auger drive shaft (right in front, between the two auger blades).

Left auger does not engage/spins freely


The shear pin is sheared off. Somewhere along the auger, you'll find a hole drilled all the way through it. The shaft inside also has a hole drilled all the way through it. Compare the two augers - the holes are USUALLY in a straight line with each other (when one is up/down, the other is also up/down).

Get a replacement shear pin (DO NOT use a hardened bolt!) and put it through the holes when the auger holes are lined up with the axle holes.

I have Toro 826LE model 38620 S/N 250010001 & up snow thrower; one side agur will not turn under power and free wheels by hand. The problem occured this morning, there was no indication of a problem...


It sounds like you have sheared a roll pin. Look at the auger that is not turning, on one end you will see a hole, there is a steel pin that goes through the shaft, I am pretty sure that pin has sheared and allows the auger to spin freely on the shaft. You may have to find a small punch and drive out the broken piece before inserting new one. Seeing how the auger has been spinning on the shaft you're gonna have to line up the hole in the auger with the hole in the shaft. Look at the good side to see alignment. Hope this helps ya.

Snow thrower won't throw snow


the problem could be the snow is to heavy for the motor to keep up, if thats the case you may need to upgrade to a more powerful model or try not to overload it. take it a little slower so the motor can keep up. but try tightening the belt. with your pointer finger push down on the belt it should have about a half inch give, if it moves more than that its too loose and probably slipping under load
