See if a spring has let go where the handle hooks on. . There should be a spring to pull it back up when you let go of it.

MTD 8/26 snowblower


Either there is a belt or a chain off, or the linkage became disconnected or there is a pin sheared. Take one of the three. If you have power spinning like you said then those are your choices! Best of luck to you. Hope you beat the weather!

Craftsman snowblower auger handle won't disengage, won't come up


Any chance it won't come up when you have the "drive" handle down ?? Newer snow blowers are often equipped with a "one hand" feature that will keep booth the auger and drive handles engaged (down) with only one being held.

Snowblower wont go into gear


Hello Jean,

First, remove cover between auger and engine and inspect belts, you should have a drive belt and an auger belt. If both of those are ok then check all linkages from the gear shifter and handle down to the base. Second, you will have to tip unit forward and rest in up position. Next, you will have to remove the plate on bottom of unit. You will see a rubber disc that presses against a friction plate when you squeeze handle to engage drive. These rubber discs do deteriorate over time. I'm confident once you look at internal workings of drive system you will quickly understand how they work. I would bet its just a belt but if you follow the steps above Im sure you will see the problem. Good luck and Happy wrenching!

Auger clutch lever disengages even though drive clutch lever is squeezed


On mine (Honda HS55) it turned out to be gummy old grease on the shaft and the lever that are supposed to lock the auger lever down. The spring couldn't overpower the sticky old grease. If nudged or given enough time, it would slowly turn and lock, but not instantaneously, as it should.
10 mm wrench to remove the nut (bottom left) and bolt (under handle) holding on the metal cover.
Once cover was off I could see the locking lever, spring, and the shaft that had the gummy grease on it.
The third photo shows the locking lever as it should be engaged. I had to push it to engage it, due to the spring not being strong enough for the gummy grease on the shaft.
There are flat sides on the shaft, behind the threads for the nut that has already been removed. Use a wrench on those to turn the shaft out. Disassemble. Clean. Oil. Reassemble. Works great now.
Another possibility is that your locking lever or spring are broken.

I have a 8/26 mastercraft snowblower Model No.


Have you checked all belts and belt tensioners? If so, you will have to tip unit up and take bottom plate off of unit. The drive system consists of a rubber lined wheel that makes contact with a friction plate once handle is depressed for drive. As you change gears you can see rubber drive wheel changes position in relation to friction disc to change speed. If belts are good, I would look in this area for problem. These rubber lined dive wheels do wear out and are replaceable. Also, on some models you can adjust further. Hope this helped. Happy wrenching!
