Question about Craftsman Garden

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.

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

You don't need to remove the any lever linkages but you will need to remove some of the pulleys.If you can give an exact model number of the tractor it would help.

Remove the auger belt housing cover 4 bolts (10mm), if you are lucky, you can take the belt out, or just cut it. The slide the new belt between the auger and driving pulleys. there is a break pad under the auger pulley, so have someone engage the auger handle and put the new belt on the auger pulley. Or you can remove 10 12mm bolts and separate the auger and engine. Even though you have remove more bolts, it is easier.

Sounds like the auger belt is too tight. What belt did you use? Toro 37-9080? If you used the right belt, there is an adjustment on the cable going to the pulley that pulls the belt. Follow the cable to where it goes into the side of the machine. There should be an adjuster. Loosen the adjuster so that there is enough free play so the auger does not turn when the handle is not pulled.

I have a Yard Works snowblower model 31AE6MKH515 that keeps throwing the auger belt off the pulley, how do I correct this?


This is caused by a fault in the belt alignment or run as we call it, find out if the Auger is loose from a bad bearing and wobbling or drive pulley is the problem, check for any serious amount of play in either end of the belt connection.

Snowblower....auger takes time to get going...like five minutes...it will struggle to start spinning then eventually warms up and is fine....whats the issue?


It is most likely your auger drive belts. There are two of them, and they need to be replaced periodically. Your manual should describe in detail as to how to replace the belts. Always start by removing the spark plug wire.
Improper gearcase lubricant could also cause problems. Your manual should tell you specifically what to use in the gearcase, and how to fill it. Also look for grease fittings on the auger and use a low-temp grease to service those fittings.
Lastly; behind the auger is the impeller shaft. Reach in and see if it wiggles. If it does, then have your impeller bearing replaced.

Auger replacement


Here is a manual for your snowblower. Yes, It's the same. http://download.sears.com/own/spin_prod_674132601.pdf . Go to page 30, it a parts diagram of the blower and housing.

You will need to remove the pulley #66 from the back of the unit, the bearing retainer #1, and the auger bearing bolts #18. The whole unit will then slide out of the housing. You can then remove the augers and then take the worm gear apart. That will get you to the auger shaft.

Not sure how to reroute auger cable on craftsman snowblower


I assume the cable to the auger was removed and needs to be re-installed.
There should be a clamp that the cable ran thru, then attaches to the auger
control. Find this clamp on your snowblower, and route it thru this clamp
then attach it to your auger control.

Craftsman Snowblower. One auger is disengaged...turns freely when touched....does not push snow


the augers on many craftsman snowblowers have a sheer bolt. If the auger encounters too much resistance, ie, a foreign object like a piece of wood or even a newspaper buried in the snow, this bolt will break off preventing damage to the gear box, which is a lot more expensive to repair than replacing the bolt.
This bolt requires not tools to install, just insert and secure with a cotter pin.
The parts dept at sears can sell you the replacement bolts with the correct sheer force rating. Have your snow blower model number handy when you call or go in.
