Excuse me

There may be a belt or clutch disc slipping.
Does the fan part (blower) also slow down and stop ?
(Requires a second person to verify)

The fan/blower is belt driven and then at the end of the shaft is a gearbox that drives the auger.

It's not uncommon for the gearboxes to get chewed up.

There is a drive pulley that spins with the engine and there is a second pulley that is connected to the blower/fan shaft.
Usually the belt just slips on the pulleys until you pull the handle.
There should be an adjustment on the bottom of the linkage.
The adjustment should be two nuts tightened against each other on the threaded linkage.

If you look at the action of the handle you should see the adjustment moving with the linkage.


Above all......practice safe snowblower repairing. Do not put your hands in where the belts and pulleys are spinning.
