Are you sure the auger engage is electric, and not by a cable and pulley?

Yes, It Has A Key Start. On The Handle Theres A Lever On It That If You Let It Go Its To Stop The Auger From Turning Without Stopping The Engine.

Is the auger belt driven? Sounds like the lever may operate a manual PTO?

U have any model #'s and or manufacturer?

Get a can of GOOD lubricant/penetrating oil. Soak the pullies, springs and cables. Then exersize them, adding more oil. Try not to get it on the belts.
Chances are you lost a spring or just needs an adjustment..
My mower had this problem with the blade drive, cleaned it and lubed it, all is well.
I don't need to tell you that snow melts and turns to water, and water rusts up metal parts.

HMM.... Guess I just did. Good luck.

It sounds as though you're talking about the safety feature and that you're interested in keeping it active and that you're not talking about the auger operation itself. Is this true? If so, and anyhow, we need more specifics on the machine. Make, model and serial numbers on the chassis as well as ID numbers of the Briggs engine.

In case you can't get it working right, here's a snowthrower a fellow in Newfoundland made.. Maybe he'll sell it to you..
