I drove it with the 4 wheel drive on dry pavement for a long while and my mileage has gotten poor,what could have gotten damaged from my mistake?

The only problem using 4x4 on dry pavement that may develop is with the front differential/axles. It will have no adverse affect on fuel mileage when the 4x4 is disengaged. Fuel economy will be affected if running in 4x4

Why the bobbin winder does not turn when engaged?

Is the hand wheel pulled out ? Usually to get a bobbin to wind, you have to disengage the clutch.. this is usually done by pulling either the entire hand wheel or a knob in the middle of it out. This stops the needle going up/down.

I don't have this exact machine, but have had one similar to it. I looked at a pic of the machine and see two small things sticking up on the top at the far right hand side. Are they part of the bobbin winder ?

If yes, you may have to push the part with the empty bobbin mounted on it, sideways, to engage the winding mechanism.

Hope this is of help.

The paper will not feed at the moment of printing so disconnected printer on doing so to remove it from the office a small white plastic wheel dropped out Is this fixable or is the printer naff

Yes the printer is fixable, the while plastic wheel which dropped down was the rollers wheel which can be fixed by a technician. And the problem with paper not feeding is due to dirt in the roller or paper jammed inside. Hope this helps.
Please rate if the solution was helpful, thanks!

Use a good quality silicon lube and spray into the top of the cable. Do this until it comes out the bottom, a little at a time. Also, spray all pivot points. Don't use WD-40, it will freeze. Lube everything at the end of winter and again before winter.

Arien524 when clutch is engaged the wheels donot pull right away

Sorry I should have posted this as a solution.
You might want to check the friction wheel to see if it is either worn down and needs adjusting or if it needs replacing.It could very well be just an adjusting. The friction wheel is located inside the panel under the engine. When looking inside the panel and you pull on the handle to engage the wheels you will see the round disc pull towards the friction wheel if it doesn't pull in tight enough you will have problems.Also check the belt and the idler pulley for the drive make sure the idler pulley moves easy and that it puts enough tension on the belt.

Ariens Snowblower won't engage into drive

I had the same problem with my 5HP Dual stage (C950-520240) Canadian model and found that the arm connected to the traction cable (part #85449 "Shaft Traction Clutch") which forces the friction disk up to the rubber friction wheel had a cracked weld and had bent, preventing positive contact with the rubber friction wheel. The drive wheels would turn if you lifted the back of the machine off the ground, but would not work if under load. First I replaced the belt and rubber friction wheel, but no go. I had to basically disassemble the whole drive assembly to find the problem, very frustrating because you could not see the crack in the arm from head on. I had the cracked and bent arm straightened and welded, all is OK now. enb54.jpg
