Yard-Man 31AH65LG701 357cc Gas 2-Stage Self Propelled Snow…

My snowblower won’t self-propel. I’ve replaced the drive belt and all the pulleys and discs move but the wheels won’t turn.
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Do not start to do this but put the blower in gear like you would run to drive its self and try to turn the wheels by hand and if they turn easily then you may have a shear pin that is broken or missing in the drive pulley.
Just a thought.

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

A misadjusted or broken control cable will prevent the wheels from turning. Replace the traction control cable if necessary but be sure to properly adjust the cable`s tension so the drive disk properly engages with the friction wheel when the handle lever is depressed.
If the V-belt is worn out, misadjusted, or broken, the snowblower wheels won`t turn. Inspect the belt to determine if it is broken or worn out, and make sure that the belt is properly adjusted. If the V-belt is broken or worn out, replace it.
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. The snowblower also won`t move with the auger housing or scraper blade scraping the ground.
A clogged carburetor is usually the result of leaving fuel in your snow blower for an extended period of time. Old fuel resting in your snow blower can also result in fuel evaporation, which may leave behind a thick, sticky substance. That sticky fuel can clog the carburetor and prevent the engine from starting.
If your snowblower won`t turn on or start, you can insert the key in the starter switch. There could be a problem with your starter switch or motor. To test the starter switch, you can use a multimeter. If the starter switch is not working properly, replace it.
A common issue is a clogged carburetor from stale gas. Using a fuel stabilizer keeps fuel fresh and the carburetor from gumming and varnishing. Third step, check the ignition system with a spark tester. Step four, replace the spark plug and reconnect the spark plug wire.
The higher the impeller rpm, the farther the snow gets tossed. There are impeller kits that can be added to your snowblower. Keep in mind, however, that any modifications to the machine might impact its warrantee.
Use a broom handle or other long, stiff object to clear the blockage. Most snow blowers come with a tool for unclogging the machine as needed, and some even have a clip to attach it to the machine so it is with you at all times. This is the best way to clear a clog.

A snowblower auger should not spin freely when the auger control lever is off. A free-spinning auger is a symptom of broken shear pins. Shear pins are a fail-safe feature designed to break when the auger hits a solid object.
