You said" I replaced the 'blets' for both sides". Does this mean belts or bolts?

Check on the auger side that doesn't turn, most likely you have a broken shear bolt. Each side will have one, they are there so that they will break before something expensive does.

I will do that...

We got a good amount of snow already today. Happy Thanksgiving
