Question My back is killing me Part du.......

Tried my snow blower (5/22 Model 536.886122) once again and again it would not throw snow. It would shoot a little then bog down. Looks like it is going to become a project. My 3/20 gobbled up the now. Thoughts?

It would help if you gave a little more info. It depends on whether the auger and impeller are running or not. Could be the auger belt or it's adjustment. Could be the auger gear. Could be the type snow and depth you're going against.

If it's slushy snow, most smaller hp blowers have a small chute and have a problem. One solution many use is an impeller kit. Another is to insure everything in the auger housing is clean and slick to allow the blower to move the snow it's taking in.

Both the impelled and auger were rotating. I checked they seem to be fine. It shoots a little but once it gets build up. It bogged down. The snow was powder, there was moisture in it. Not slush though.

So it bogs down under load. Is the engine bogging down or are the augers and impeller just slowing down?
Those were the models made by noma right?

The engine..I believe it was referred to as an MTD.

Do you know if the carburetor is good? Has anyone looked at it or adjusted it lately? Does the unit work better when cold or just as soon as it gets heavy snow?
Did you buy the unit new or used and how long have you had it?

Not sure. No. I haven't been successful blowing snow with it st all. I just bought it. Put a new friction wheel in it. Like I said earlier. Looks like it's going to turn into a project.

Well it could be, but it really depends on what the problem is, which is why I have been asking the questions. I am trying to determine whether the engine has lost compression, carburetor is not clean, or the simply the belts are worn for the augers. Since you say that the engine dies down under load and not just the augers, we can probably eliminate the belts.
More likely than anything it is the carburetor, since that is the problem point on any small engine.

Does the engine run rough at idle or does it run smooth? You can try to see if it runs better with some choke on it, that pinpoints the carburetor almost directly.

If that was the case it would need to be cleaned. If it is an adjustable carb it will probably need some tuning. If it is not adjustable, a good soaking will help.

Does it have a "bolt" sticking out of the bottom of the bowl that can be screwed in and out?

Thank you for all your suggestions. It does run smooth in idle. I will check it tomorrow with the choke on. Stay tuned, again thanks!
