John deere 928e vibration

I have a 2008 928e (simplicity) that has a vibration/grinding noise from the bucket when l start the impeller. Under load of snow a lot less and is intermittant. I am waiting for a new Ariens 30 deluxe efi but l would like to repair this in my home garage in my spare time , it is one solid machine and the motor runs great, almost no rust. Can someone offer a suggestion as to what l might look at first so as not to waste time.

In 10 years changed 1 shear pin , 1 belt and several bushings for the wheels, no work on carb at all ( They would wear out and look egg shaped ). Used stabil and last use before storing put in and ran seafoam...

Without seeing.or hearing your machine I would start with the simplest repair by looking at the belts.etc, and going deeper from there. I know you say you don't want to waste time but this isn't rocket science and it doesn't hurt to give the belts and pulleys a glance. It will probab!y be a bearing somewhere in the impeller drive or possibly a problem in the gearbox. Try a youtube or google search.

Sounds like you have a bearing going bad somewhere, the drive belt pulley to impeller/ auger gearbox shaft or an auger shaft end bearing where it goes into the side of the housing. An out of balanced impeller that could have been bent from a foreign object caught in it. A worn out auger tube that connects to the auger transmission shaft. Different possibilities.
John Deere never made walk behind snow blowers, they had them made by a lot of different companies and "re-badged" them with their name on it and their green color. Deere stopped selling snowblowers for a while, they couldn't find anybody to make a decent machine for them, but they still sold tractor mounted units. They had a lot of trouble with the Areins made units, they didn't hold up and constantly broke, and if you got them wet, the friction drive would not move the machine at all, it just sat there motionless with the auger turning and wheels stopped.

To check for a bad bearing on the impeller shaft on engine side of impeller housing, grab the impeller (if the impeller shaft has a plastic sleeve over it) and try moving "up and down" and "side to side". There should not be any movement at all. If there is then the bearing needs to be replaced.

The cast iron gearcase is lubricated with gear oil and the level should be to the bottom of the fill plug at the front of the box. If the level is low then check for leaks at point where impeller shaft goes into the gearbox and where the auger shafts go into the gearbox.

My neighbour has a 2013 John Deere 1130SE which is a very impressive machine. I am just checking it over for him. First time looking at the Simplicity built blower for John Deere, so I don't have all the specs yet.

Yes. Deere did manufacture their own blowers early on. The Ariens models were not problematic but the murray model ST blowers put them out of the walk behind blower business. ma

Turns out my neighbours John Deere 1130SE is made by Murray. I found the parts manual at Jacks using the model number 1695623. Got the Owner manual from Murray. Sounds like this model is from 2009 but it was purchased new in 2013 and serial number is 2013964639.

I know a "169" number is a Simplicity model number. Simplicity model numbers started with 169, 269, 469, 990 and a few others.
Surprising a Murray model number would start with a 169, but anything is possible.
Simplicity model prefix numbers were followed by a four digit number afterwards, so the complete number normally had 7 digits to it, some had more. I didn't list all of the prefix numbers, just some of the common ones used by Simplicity and Snapper, which are both owned by Briggs And Stratton.

That Snowblower is definitely made by Simplicity for John Deere, no doubt about it. "SimpleCity" may have made some for Murray, so that could be how you got a manual from Murray, but you could have also gotten the manual from a Simplicity dealer using the 169 model number that you have.

Thanks for the info. I got the part numbers I needed from Jacks Small Engines online catalogue that lists the 1695623 as a Murray. Here is the link: https://www.jackssmallengines.com/ja...e-thrower-2009

I am not familiar with John Deere walk behind snowblowers or Simplicity or Murray so this is a learning experience. I will check with the local Simplicity dealer on Monday.
