Unhappy Craftsman 536881800 won't throw snow - but auger works

I have a Craftsman Model 536-881800 snow thrower. The drive works fine and the auger engages (it spins around), but does not throw snow.

It worked last week and a few days ago. When I tried this morning, it throw some snow for a few seconds and then nothing.

What could be the problem?

Check the shear pins in the augers. I know you said the auger spins, but the shear pins could still be broken and the rust on the shaft is what is spinning the augers and therfore the auger will stop spinning when any resistance it put on them and will not funnel any snow to the impeller.
