JD 524D auger turns slow

Greeting,

The auger on my JD 524D snowblower turns slow. It won't shoot the snow fast and snow are stuck in there. The shear bolts are all in good shape. What could cause this problem? the belt?

Thanks.

The impeller runs perfect and the auger belt isn't loose when engage the handle bar. it's hard to tell if the belt is slippery while the machine is running and auger is engaging. Since it is over 10 yr old blower, maybe the belt lost its tension. I ordered the new auger belt and will replace it this weekend. Will updating this thread soon....

The JD

The impeller may be spinning on it's shaft, with the engine off, and maybe the spark plug wire off, and the belt engaged, try to move the impeller, you may get lucky .
