maybe @tabora can shed some light on this.Hey. I have owned it since new. I think it has around 100hrs on it. Yes I have stop the auger before by finding an extension cord or two. The auger spins freely so I’ll dig around and see what I can figure out. Thanks
Yes, what @vmax29 said... If the auger shear bolt protection system is activating, then something is keeping the augers from turning freely in sync with the gearbox. Be sure to check the limit switch, auger shear bolts and clevis pins, too.Look for some of that copper wire that may have worked it’s way into the auger bearings.
did you call the dealer and speak to one of their certified techs? they probably know.Thanks for all the reply’s. I have to believe it is an electrical problem as the red light starts blinking the second I turn the blower on. I can turn the auger freely so is there a rely that could be a problem or just the limit switch inside the gear box?
I’ll be ordering a service manual for the blower but won’t have that for a little while.
please let me know what they say. I have very little experience with HSS models due to most are still under warranty and I have not heard of this issue as yet. If someone in my group has this question I would like to give them some solid advice.So The place where I bought it lost there deal with Honda and no longer deal with Honda, he was a terrible representative of Honda and I was glad to see him lost that deal. So I won’t be calling him. Though that’s a good idea and I may call another dealer and see what they say.
Best answer already given... Have you verified the condition of the limit switch, bearings, shear bolts, clevis pins, etc? You'll need to disassemble the auger components to check if ALL the above have been verified.Nothing like wrapped up and tangled in the auger. The auger has always stopped when it found an obstruction. I’ve had it stop at least 5 times by finding something in the snow.
oh I thought I had to open the housing to see what’s happening. So I did see the Black connector so that just needs to be disconnected and then unscrew the switch. Thanks for that.
I hate to relate the times I dug too deep into a repair when the solution was right in front of my face. Tore a Honda right side tranny apart because the tracks were not moving and come to find out both drive wheel pins were missing.
