SOURCE: Last year I purchased a

Cecil,
I am curious why this repair was not covered under the warranty? This snow blower has a 2 year warranty from the manufacture.

Two things for you.
First, there has always been the "what came first, the chicken or the egg" issue over leaving fuel or draining the fuel from you snow blower. Half the experts say drain it, and the other half say leave it in.
Secondly, all of the current Cub Cadet, Craftsman, Troy-Bilt, Yard Machine, and Yardman snow blowers with the Powermore engine need to be treated differently than the old Techumseh or Briggs side-valve that you were used to.
The issue with your Powermore engine is actually today's ethanol fuel. If you leave the ethanol blends in your tank without a fuel stabilizer the alcohol separates from the gas. This alcohol then rises to the top of the tank and gets into the fuel lines. The fuel lines actually will soften. (I've seen the primer bulb actually melt on a few units)
If you drain the tank and run it dry the remaining fuel will "varnish" and/or dry out the carb.
I know a service manager that repairs a lot of these Powermore motors. Instead of replacing the carb, his techs actually take the carb off, soak it overnight in carb cleaner and then reinstall it. This is so common that he keeps a few clean carbs on the shelf and then just switches them out when a customer has a problem.
So how do you keep from getting those high repair bills? First, use fuel stabilizer ALL THE TIME! Mix Sta-Bil, Sea Foam, or Craftsman Fuel Stabilizer according to the directions on the bottle. Secondly, try not to use ethanol blended fuel. Especially try to fill the tank the last time you use it in the spring with non blended fuel. Third, When you put your snowblower away, fill it with stabilized fuel, start the motor and run it until warm. Then "fog" the carb with SeaFoam spray until it loads up and quits running. Put it away for the season. (If you don't know how to fog go to SeaFoam's website and read about doing this with the spray)
It will start next fall.

Your snowblower has 4 shear pins keeping the front auger safe. Use the manual to locate them if you are unsure where they are and how to change them. Since your snowblower is new I am going to assume you have the manual.
Your snowblower came with 2 spare shearpins. Check up by the handles and see if they are still there. If you don''t have them go to your local Lowes, Sears, or MTD repair shop to get new ones. DO NOT USE STANDARD BOLTS!

The drive shaft coming out of the gear box is one, solid piece all the way across the snowthrower so if one side is turning there is a 95% chance it's the shear pins.

I just replaced the auger belt and the auger cable has no tension. What do I do to fix it?


Here's some silly questions: Did you put the belt on the correct side of the Tensioner?
Is it the correct sized belt?
Is there a spring on the cable for the auger that can be lifted up the cable to expose the adjustment nut ?

Auger won't stop


Open up plastic cover over belts.There is a pulley that moves against belt to engage front auger.There is a spring that hold it in the off position and when you pull the handle it moves that pulley.Sounds like spring broke or slipped off.

Auger


Hi Brenda,

This machine makes use of two levers on the handle. The right controls the drive and the left controls the auger. When both are released, the drive wheels and the auger should stop. The impeller (the part inside that pushes snow up and out of the chute) will run as long as the motor is running and not controlled by the levers.

You said the auger continues to spin even when the lever is released. Both levers are connected by a flexible, thin, steel cable that extends down to a "wheel" or pulley assembly that is held in place by two hex nut bolts to the rear (operator position) corners of the machine. The steel cable should be ON the wheel - not hanging in free air and not wedged between the pulley and pulley support. Loosening the bolts and adjusting the pulley UPWARD should reduce tension / provide SLACK required to disengage the auger when the lever is released (adjust for a *small* amount of slack only). Positioning the pulley DOWNWARD increases tension that reduces the amount travel the lever needs to ENGAGE the auger. The pulley assembly position needs to be adjusted so that when the lever is released, the auger shuts off, and when squeezed, the auger turns on. These same adjustment procedures can be used for the DRIVE lever control, too.

If you are unable to adjust the cable so that there is a little slack, then there is a problem with the cable at the other end - inside the machine. It will require someone who is mechanically inclined - or snow blower serviceman to adjust / repair this for you if you lack the tools and understanding to do the work yourself. It is not likely to be an expensive repair, however. You should ask for an estimate or be given the opportunity to authorize repairs before they are started.

I hope this helps and good luck!
