New Ariens owner with a question...

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!

I have not noticed that on my Deluxe 30. Only have about 3 hours on it so far though.

I did have that on my deluxe 28 as well. Never a problem, just an annoying rattle.

I did notice the same thing on the Deluxe 24 I just purchased. Haven't had any snow to try it yet to see if there is a problem in use.

Of course, now that I bought it, we won't get any snow! Thanks for the responses!

Cheese, one of my units was delivered with loose bolts that hold the chute in place and it was very "floppy". Check your attachment hardware and make certain things are tight. Welcome aboard !!

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.

I have 2 new Ariens machines a 30 Platinum and a 36 pro. I don't notice a loose rattling chute on mine, but it's a good thing that it's made like it is, the chute won't freeze up. Some machines do in fact freeze up in this area.
Take a little WD40 and spray up into the chute. Then it will rotate with ease. There is a spring under the gear. If you snug it up a little, it will add tension if the chute gears, reducing the chute from drifting on it's own.
