I borrowed my neighbors mtd single speed snow thrower, it was working fine then the wheels quit turning, took it back to his garage, sat few hours, now they will pull machine on garage floor, but feels like something is slipping part of the way around. belt looks ok, the spring lever moves up and down, any ideas?
model 31A-32AD752

This is the Yard Machines diagnostic instructions for a 31A-32AD752

Diagnose & Troubleshoot
Yard Machines Snow Thrower



Unit fails to self-propel Possible Causes and Corrective Actions

Drive cable out of adjustment
Adjust the control cable as instructed in Operator's manual.

Drive belt worn or damaged
Inspect the drive belt for damage and replace if necessary.

Friction wheel worn
Replace friction wheel.


I'm also thinking you may have broken a pin or bolt in the transmission that would prevent the power from getting to the wheels. Like a gear freewheeling on a shaft instead of being driven or driving something.
Have you tipped it up and taken a look inside the transmission yet ??

not looked inside, but the cable moves arm as far as it can go, it quit totally, then it did drive across garage floor, but stopped about 20% of wheel turn every turn, and now I remember it was working that way, going then stopping, then going, I never ran one before so didn't know, he said his wife had trouble too.
it is so new no rust or paint worn off.
sounds like tranny is bad, belt seems ok, never smelled hot belt
