Ariens not throwing snow

My Ariens model 920021 isn't throwing snow. AFAICT the impeller and augur rotate, but stall under even pretty light loads.

I suspect there's something wrong with the belt.

I found a good discussion here for diagnosis: https://www.snowblowerforum.com/foru...wing-snow.html

Is that advice general enough to apply to my machine?

AWESOME. Thanks. That video, plus one that popped up on replacing the belt on an Ariens, look really helpful!
