Chute moves by itself while plowing the snow.

Just got the chance to use my Ariens Deluxe 28 for the first time, is there a way where I can tighten up the chute so it won't move left to right or vice versa while removing snow?

Assuming this is a newer model, there will be a vertical fastener on the underside of the black plastic cover (the one that holds your extra shear bolts). If memory serves me correct, a 9/16 wrench will be needed. You will see a spring betwixt the nut and the worm gear. Give the nut a twist with said 9/16" wrench to either loosen or tighten.

That will solve your wandering chute issue.
