Craftsman Snow Thrower Auger not turning
Model Number: 917.881.050
The augers will not turn when the auger control lever is pressed down all the way. I used the snowblower two days ago, and all was fine, and this problem just started happening today.
Previously, I did notice that the snow blower would not continue to blow snow when holding just the traction drive control lever down, after pressing the auger control lever. One should be able to hold just the traction drive control lever down and also have the auger control lever remain locked down automatically. This did nnot seem to be working as well anymore. However, if I held both control levers manually I could continue to blow snow.
Now, the auger control lever will not work at all. I am not sure if there is a problem with the auger control lever itself, or the auger belt, or something else. Thanks for any help you can provide.
