Hi, I figured out the problem. The gear transfer case between the augers must be broke. The auger spins slowly until it hits snow and then stops-- The discharge fan continues to spin fast. I will try to get a local handyman to fix it or else but a new machine, this one must be at least 15-16 years old.
I thank you for your help, it is a great service. ojohn

first you'll need a model number. look on the underside of the seat, or on the metal plate between the rear wheels for the model no. sticker. wards tractors were made by MTD. there will be two numbers plus the serial number, write 'em both down. then log on to www.milacalawn.com. in most cases, you'll be able to pull up an owner's manual for your tractor with one or the other model numbers

The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn. If you remove the cover (usually plastic) in the middle of the snow thrower and look at the belts.
Your operator's manual will show you how to remove the cover and check/change the belts.
I am going to assume you have a Craftsman snow blower. If you don't have a copy you can get the manual through managemyhome.com
You will need the model number off the snowblower. It is usually located on the bottom right hand corner of the frame (from the handle side)
The model number looks like 247.123456.
The belt closest to the blower assembly drive the auger/blower and the belt closest to the engine drive the transmission.
With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the belt.
You should only be able to depress the long side 1/2 inch or less. More than that the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced.
On some older blowers you can adjust the tension pulley, but most made in the last 15 years, you can't.
The belt may be frayed on the edges or glazed causing it to slip (it is shiny on the sides of the belt) It may be torn and broke completely.
Your Craftsman manual will show you step by step how to change th belt.
You can get parts for you Craftsman and most MTD made models through searspartsdirect.com. With other makes you can get parts through jackssmallengines.com
If you are unfamiliar with repairing machines you can get your snow blower repaired by taking it to your local Sears.
They will have a technician troubleshoot and repair the unit.
Feel free to ask any other questions. I know Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!
