I just got an Ariens Dekuxe 30 EFI and am wondering if other Ariens owners have experienced the chute rattling. It seems to me that the flange of the chute is pretty loose over the impeller hole, or, maybe it just that the mounting pole keeps the chute dangling just above the hole? Works just fine but makes a racket. Anyone else run into this? Thanks for your time!
Thanks UberT! I love this site! Since I am the one who assembled it I figured I better check what you said incase I didn't tighten the mounting bolts but no, they are tight, it seems like it is just extra play down where the chute sits over the impellor. When running you can instantly stop the rattle by touching the chute base. Not a big deal just a bit annoying, that's all.
