  1. Craftsman Snowblowers
    Bought this used 3 seasons ago. Well maintained by previous owner. Lots of snow this year, did all the pre season maintenance. About a week ago shifting the transmission became very hard and worse than that it would just lock up, wouldn’t go forward or backwards. I opened it up, cleaned and...
  2. Craftsman Snowblowers
    Hi all, newbie here! I purchased my first snowblower about 2.5 years ago from Lowes - which I think at that time relaunched the Craftsman brand in Canada. Anyway, I haven't had much use of it, probably a total of 8-10 hours since I bought it - so didn't do any maintenance on it EXCEPT letting...

    I have a Craftsman 9 HP Model 247.88790. It was just barely throwing snow and thanks to the people in this forum I was able to perform several repairs, such as replacing the float ring, putting in a new auger belt and doing the impeller mod. Over the last week we had a few storms and things were...

    There's two augurs, only one works as it should. The other spins freely and the shear pin on that one appears to have...sheared? What I mean is that it is broken flush on both the top and the bottom. I could try to punch it out, but it doesn't seem as if it broke "inside" (freeing the augur from...

    I have a 2017 24inch Craftsman snowblower. Last winter it started hesitating on the drive function. After a few minutes, and pulling the lever a few times, it would work just fine. This winter I decided to try and track it down. After taking off the cover I noticed the drive belt idler pulley...

    Wife got a "good deal" on a snowblower while I was out of town. I arrive back and the snowblower is actually in really great shape considering it's 4 or 5 years old. However, once you start the augers there is a distinct "banging". I looked at it closely and you can see the second stage impeller...

    Hello, Hope all is well. I'm currently stuck at the moment and need some input. The snow blower has sat for a couple years so I drained the old fuel, cleaned the carb (replaced a couple years back), replaced the gas cap, and replaced the spark plug. The snow blower will start but stall 3...

    Evening all, I picked up a Craftsman 11hp 30in snowblower (model 536.886220 s/n 725102378 I believe the year is 1997) that I am trying to find some parts for (basically needs drive axle, sprocket and bearing flanges that go between the wheels p/n 583017, 583007, 581730 x2). I can find the parts...
