Freezing cables

Is there a quick fix to stop my cables freezing up on my snowblower.
Like a non freezing grease I can put in there.

You have water or moisture in your cables. Bring it inside a heated garage over nite to melt the ice. What I do, is blow them out with compressed air. If you watch the bottom of the cable, you will see the water dripping out. Next, I spray a penetrating oil (WD40) down the cable & work the cable. After they are working freely, I push grease ( any type of grease) into the upper end of the cable and leave a small pile at the upper end of the cable to keep the water from getting in. You can also do the same at the lower end of the cable.
