My knowledge of snow blowers is limited but in the interim until someone, more knowledgeable posts I suggest you look at the owner’s manual. The manual details various adjustments.

If you do not have a manual, download one at the Sears site below:

You need to tighten the cable. At the bottom of the cable, where the spring is, there is a nut inside the spring. Tighten this nut just enough to make the cable taught with a little slack.
