Ariens 8524 Question

I have a question on a malfunctioning Ariens 8524. It seems like an easy fix, but I’d like to confirm on here before I try something on my own. The engine on the unit is working fine, but when I try and throw snow, nothing comes out. Upon further examination, the auger is not spinning.

Can someone please advise? Is this a simple fix or should I leave it to the pros?

Let me know

Could be a shear pin, belt, or even the gearbox.

Much more information is needed, does the machine move? do you hear anything when you engage auger? do you see the impeller moving? , etc., etc......

The machine moves normally and everything sounds normal as well. A few weeks ago, I let the machine run for 10-15 mins to make sure everything was in working order for the winter and it was fine.

I'm happy for any feedback. Thx I appreciate it.

Yeah, it is hard to tell without seeing what is going on, could be a lot of things.

Start by doing some hands on detective work to see what is happening and what is not that should be.

I would suggest getting a family member or neighbor who is mechanically inclined to have a hands on look at it.

You mention seems like an easy fix, do you know what is wrong?
