Hi, The only thing I can think of is that your sheer pins are broken. Can you turn the auger by hand? If you can, look at the shaft that the auger is welded to, If you can look for bolts or holes on the auger center shaft, You will have to punch out anything that is left there. If that's the problem measure the diameter and length of the old bolts, or go to a shop that sells parts to get new sheer pins. You can also use ordinary bolts that will work well. Have you checked your belt to see if it is broken or has come off the pulley or if the belt tensionner is still on the belt or has come off not providing the right amount of tension so the belt does not slip in the pulleys and is able to turn the auger. Regards and good luck. I hope that is the problem and can be fixed easily and is cheap to do.

This appears to be a Sears model number--go to: www.searspartsdirect.com and enter the model number minus the decimal point. This will bring up a series of drawings of all of the replaceable parts for the machine. Locate the pulley that you speak of and see if a 'key' is shown to lock the pulley to the shaft. Hope this helps!

Hi, I will try to help you with a few suggestions that could be the problem. I have found that sometimes the shear pins break, but the ends of the pin do not fall out. Have you tried to remove them by hammering them off? Another possibility, if that is not the problem, then the auger gearbox might have a damaged gear or maybe just a broken or loose bolt or pin. If that is the problem then you need to take it apart. If that is not the problem you can check the lube level by removing the plug on the outside of the gear box and check for lubrication. Whatever type of lube that machine uses should be even with the bottom of the plug hole. If it is low or there is none at all add what is recommended in your owners manual. That is just preventive maintenance. But I think it might be just the ends of the pins not having fallen out. If that is the problem then you will need a punch to remove the center of the pin that is on the auger shaft. Hope this is helpful a bit, at least it is something to check out. Best regards and good luck.

It sounds like the auger always turning is the auger engagement handle/line/connections are not adjusted correctly. They/it is too tight causing the auger to engage before it should. It may be up at the handle where you loosen a jam nut, screw in or out a threaded shaft, and retighten the jam nut. (If you have ever adjusted a bicycle brake it is similar.) (I have a craftsman, made by MTD, and I think I saw MTD also list Ariens.) Or it could be an adjustment somewhere else (but I'm not sure where).
As far as one auger moving and the other not, you may have a shear-pin (shear bolt as the manual calls them) on each side of the auger's shaft (my craftsman has one on each side), and the one on the side that stops turning is sheared off. (It moves without snow present due to the driveshaft inside the outer auger shaft turning, but it won't turn under load (snow).) You may confirm a sheared-pin by turning the machine off and try to turn the auger blade. If it turns somewhat easily, that's a bad shear pin. Remove the old shear pin. If the old one is as long as the new one, that aint the problem. The shear pin in the image is one kind. Mine appear as a straight bolt (no grooves), threaded the entire length. You will have to rotate the auger blade until it aligns with the hole in the shaft. Use a nail that fits and rotate the blade until the nail goes in. Remove the nail and screw in the shear bolt:
The auger clutch control up at the handle looks like this:
From my manual
I hope the above info helps you take care of both issues.
