If the cogged belt is worn out, misadjusted, or broken, the snowblower auger won`t turn. Inspect the cogged belt to determine if it is broken or worn out, and ensure that the belt is properly adjusted. If the belt is broken or worn out, replace it.
Check and adjust the belts and replace any broken or worn belts when you see the snowblower auger not turning. Check the auger drive cable and adjust it if loose or replace the cable if it`s broken. Examine and replace the auger if it`s damaged and won`t spin. Replace the gear case if it won`t spin the auger.
If your single stage snow blower will not blow snow, or is not performing as well as usual, the paddles that throw the snow may be worn. These paddles wear over time, limiting their ability to pick up all of the snow that the unit moves over.
A worn friction disc won`t propel the snowblower so check the friction disc and replace it if it`s worn. The snowblower also won`t move with the auger housing or scraper blade scraping the ground. Tighten the scraper blade if it`s loose and replace it if damaged.
The two most common snow blower equipment problems are starting issues and clogged chutes; however, both can be resolved with the proper maintenance and tools. Follow these easy troubleshooting tips to help get your snow blower up and running so you can get the work done quickly.
Turn off the snowblower engine and leave it to cool. Remove the carburetor bowl, float bowl and flathead. Spray and clean the dirty carburetor with a carburetor cleaner, removing debris with a cloth. Let it sit to remove impurities.
On a cool grill, remove the grates, drip pan, heat baffle/shield, and hopper to see the auger parts. If the auger has pellets stuck inside the auger shaft and is not turning, it is most likely jammed.

If there is an adjusting screw on the carb turn it out a little bit at a time and see if that works before you do anything else. If that don’t work put the screw back where you started.
If that doesn’t work take the plug out and install a new one and while the plug is out put a table spoon of gas in the spark plug hole and reinstall the plug and put the plug wire back on. If the engine starts but stalls after the little bit of gas is used up. Take the bowl off the carb and clean it out as well as clean the fuel jet that is in the bolt that holds the bowl on. Put back together and see if that works. It is quite often dirty gas that is the problem. Especially if its been sitting. Oh yes put fresh gas in it as well.
