Hello, have you made any adjustments?
There is a brake and spring at the bottom of the auger pulley, check to see if spring is broken.
OK, check when possible and let me know.
Then I will opt out,good luck.
The only thing that drives the impeller and the auger is the single belt for it coming off the engine. Your belt is not losing as it should. Belt can be too short, or the cable is not letting the belt elax. Can't be any thing else! You are missing something! With unit off and engagement cable in off position, try turning the shaft, it should be free , so it is not driving. You will find it tight!
