Husqvarna auger slips out of engagement

My Husqvarna 1130SPEXP worked fine until a neighbor borrowed it. Now the auger does not stay engaged unless you hold the auger handle down. The auger is supposed to stay engaged as long as the "traction" lever is engaged. It used to work that way with no problems. But today I noticed the auger would not stay fully engaged when blowing heavy amounts of snow unless I kept the auger handle pushed all the way down. Does anyone know if this could be an adjustment. I usually engage the auger slowly as you can hear the belt squeal if you engage it quickly. I am sure the neighbor just slammed the lever down - as he isn't too mechanically adept. May have stretched the belt? Who knows?

If you have a plastic cover on the top of your handle bars, take a look under it, or maybe you'll have to remove it, to see how the two levers work together. There should be a rod that crosses the width between the drive lever and auger lever that somehow engages a mechanism on the auger engagement side to lock it down until you release the drive lever, yet allows the auger lever to work independently when only the auger lever is held down. If that makes any sense. With the cover out of the way, you should be able to see how the drive and auger levers work together. It could be that something just got bent or out of whack a little. I had a snowblower of another brand that functioned the same way, and the piece that interlocked the two controls was made of plastic. It was pretty nifty, and simple, but I thought the plastic part was the weakest link of the system. Hopefully it's and easy fix for you.

I have a similar unit, a husky manufactured craftsman, If there is something I can check on my machine to help you identify what has broken let me know.
I had a quick look at mine last night and it doesn't appear to have any rods or anything that could easily bend if forced
