The traction control cable might be broken or misadjusted. Check the traction control cable to determine if it moves freely. If the control cable does not move freely, try squirting a small amount of oil into the end of the cable to lubricate it. If lubricating the traction control cable is not effective, replace it.
Inspect the drive clutch cable and adjust if it`s loose. Check the drive belt for excessive wear and replace it if necessary. Reinstall the drive belt if it slipped off a pulley. A worn friction disc won`t propel the snowblower so check the friction disc and replace it if it`s worn.
A snowblower that won`t move or moves very slowly may have a worn or broken friction disk. Friction disks can wear down over time and will stop engaging properly. Inspect the disk and if it has any signs of damage then it may need to be replaced.
If there`s a difference in track tension between the left and right snow blower tracks, your unit could pull to one side when driving.
