Is there something jamming it? Is there ice built up in it? If its new and something wrong it should be under warranty. Take it back but before you do check it over. If it sits in a cold area then ice could be a problem. Put it in a warm area for a few hours and see if that works.

I have a Toro two stage snow thrower that has an auger issue..left just spins as it want the right moves snow....how do I fix...the machine is 13 years old can't find any answers....help please.


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).

I have a Yamaha ys 626 snowblower - how do I fix a non moving auger?


Most snow blowers have a "shear pin", (or roll pin) that links the auger to the drive shaft. It is there in case you strike something hard with the auger. The shear pin will break and protect the auger, the engine, and the operator. The shear pin can be purchased anyplace that services snow blowers, and it can be replaced by the owner.

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.

TRS21 cloggs in the chute


I have the exact same problem. Also it won't clog so easily if the snow is deeper because the auger moves more snow through (or if I run with it.) It seems to me that the auger should be as close as possible to the scraper bar without causing any friction. Do you think that distance adjustable, or would new paddles on the auger close the gap sufficiently?
