10 YO craftman traction problem

Hi, I need help! My snowblower has an intermitent traction problem. The wheels works well few minutes and after, they stall... I have try to change the friction wheel, the belt and the cable but it does not reslove my problem. I think that the water goes on the disc and freeze there, so the friction wheel slept... Did someone can help me with a solution cause I don't know what to do...

Pictures would help along with a model number of your blower. Does your machine have a belly pan on it?
Did you get the right length and width of belt? Does it happen every time or only occasionally?

Right now anything would only be a wild guess.

My model number is: C950-527250. I cannot take pictures by now...

My replacement parts are the good ones. I had the parts number found on the owner manuel.

And my problem is occasionnal. Normally, it don't works at the begenning. When I lift the blower, the wheels turns and when I put it down, they don't. After few minutes, all goes well and stall again few minutes later. that's why I think there something with the water goes on the machine...

On one of their models Ariens came out with a modification which was a melted snow/water divertor because the traction disc was getting wet, similar to what you are describing. You may have to buy some 4" rubber tape that is used when installing flanged new construction windows. You can probably get it from a Big Box store. Look for any gaps where the water could be entering. Otherwise, your traction belt might be too long, or not enough tension.
