Question Can anyone identify this part?

Hello,

Just finished clearing some snow and was brushing off the top of my HSS928AAT in the vicinity of the unclog stick with my hand when this piece of metal landed a couple feet away. I can't for the life of me figure out where it came from. Anyone recognize this? BIC lighter for scale.


Thanks!

Wow, thank you. Mine appears to be a little bent, which might explain why it fell out in the first place.

Gotta ask - did the chute defector stay in place?

Haha I just happen to be in my garage when I saw this, it was perfect timing. I agree, never heard of one one popping out...till now. Actually, the last one I replaced was a pain to even get out, but rust does that.

Yes, it stayed in place and articulated normally. I really don't know how it was just resting on the augur housing and not somewhere in a snowbank. I just put it back in and wouldn't call it a loose fit either. Took a little bit of force.
