How do I fix my snowblower when the wheels won,t move ahead or back


Sounds like gear on axle shaft broke shear bolt or key. Take bottom plate off base of snowblower.It is ok to tip snowblown up on front end so wheels are in air. After plate is off turn wheels and see if drive gear is moving with axle. If not key way or bolt has broken off, replace and will be back in motion.

Snowblower stuck in gear


The issue here is likely related to the "linkage". Linkage is the parts (often a cable or metal rods) that connect the shifter to the actual part(s) inside the snowblower that need to physically move to change speed and direction of the machine.

You'll need to carefully inspect the entire linkage to locate missing or worn cotter pins, bolts, etc. You may need to open the underside on the snowblower to inspect and access the entire linkage. These are typical parts that are used to keep the linkage connected to the shift handle and internal wheel assembly. The linkage isn't usually complex - often a pin or threaded portion that passes thru a hole in an assembly - that is held in place with a cotter pin, bolt, etc. Simply move the shifter so that the linkage can be secured properly and you should be "good to go".

Good luck!

My snowblower won't go into gear when I start it.


If your snow blower is a two stage, you can tilt unit up by handles and carefully rest unit on front auger housing. (Most units you can do this, but be careful, not all do). Then, remove bolts that hold bottom plate on snow blower, and remove bottom plate. If you follow the shift linkage down from handle to where it enters inside the unit, you will soon see how it works. Most types have the gear shifter hooked up to an apparatus that moves a rubber friction disc along a shaft, further towards the center for lower gears and vice versa. My guess is that you need to lubricate the shaft that this rubber disc slides along. Try some white lithium grease and have someone carefully move shifter throughout gear range. Be careful to not get grease on round friction plate below, this is where the rubber friction disc mates up to when drive is engaged(you don't want it slipping). Try this and let me know if you have questions. If you post actual make, model and serial# I can post pics if you like. Good luck and happy wrenching!

Snowblower drive will stop unexpectly when snowblowing


Mine was doing the same thing and I found that if I put it in reverse for a little while it would be ok again for a short time. I found also that it did this more often when the snow was heavy and wet which makes me think that the rubber drive wheel is getting wet and slipping. If you've brought it in to a shop and they've said that nothing could be found wrong, then it must be something that goes away by the time you get it there - water (I'm guessing).
