If you are using your snowblower and it doesn’t blow the snow properly it may be due to a jammed or broken impeller. With the engine off and the start key removed, check the impeller to make sure no parts have broken off. If there are then it will need to be replaced. A broken impeller puts a lot of stress on the drive mechanism because it will be unbalanced.
For step-by-step instructions for replacing the impeller on an Ariens snowblower, see the post Ariens Snowblower Impeller Replacement.
