My name is ***** *****. My Troy Bilt 5024: Worm Shaft Turns,

Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** *****. My Troy Bilt 5024: Worm Shaft Turns, but Auger Axle does not turn. Or...it might engage, but stops when it meets any resistance (snow!)

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I think I explained that above; worm shaft turns, auger axle does not.
