rug in second stage of two stage blower
I sucked a rug into my snowblower. By the time I realized what I had done, the rug was twisted up in the second stage towards the back of the blower. I heard a whining sound and I could smell something burning. I was able to pull the rug free. However, when I resumed work, It seemed like the burning smell was still present. The blower seemed to work alright, but I just want to see if anyone has any advice on why the smell was still present after the rug was removed? The blower is an Ariens platinum 30 two stage. Thanks in advance for any help!
most likely burned up the belts a bit, Once toast there pretty well on the way out so I would check them to make sure they are not ready to break.
Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

I once sucked up a poly rope while doing a friends drive. Bent the auger, warped the bucket.
