It is possible that the two shear bolts connecting the auger to the auger shaft are broken. The auger turns just because there is some friction with the shaft. Check the shear bolts and replace them if it is the case.
WARNING ! STOP THE ENGINE (remove also the ignition key) before checking the auger !

It sounds to me like the issue is either broken shear pins or the belt is loose and needs to be adjusted. Please check the owners manual or contact your local dealer to replace the shear bolts or adjust your auger belt.

The discharge chute should not fit tight but should stay in place so that it does not come off the bottom ring. Please checkout the Ariens You Tube channel for a set up video.

It is not normal to hear this noise all the time. When you engage the auger you will hear a noise when the break comes off. Otherwise you may need to make an adjustment on the auger or drive cable if the adjustments were not made at the time of assembly. These adjustments are outlined in the owners manual. You can also contact an authorized Ariens dealer for assistance if there is a defect in the machine then may need to be done under warranty.

First, that’s NOT normal. If you have augers and/or impeller engaged. It should not produce any unusual noise. I have been using it for about 4 years now and I never had such experience. This could be due to something loose or stuck, I will recommend tilting it and making sure that everything is bolted tight and appears normal. If all looks normal, I would exchange it (if still within 90 days period) or else call the manufacturer right away. These things should last years of abuse.

No special chord required, just the standard 3 Prong chord with and accessible power source.

Of course. making sure both are in good condition and are not cracked and of standard heavy duty quality and that the circuit is at least a 15amp and the chord is strung via the rear of the blower and is not near the auger.

The cord plugs into the starter motor adaptor that is on the right side of the machine and engine, near the gas tank.

No special cord is required but be sure you have:

A 3-wire extension cord that is capable of handling current requirements (120VAC). Cord should be rated for a minimum of 13 amps, 16 gage, no longer than 25 feet, grounded, UL listed, CSA certified and labeled as suitable for outdoor use.

Plug the cord into the starter motor adaptor first, then into the wall receptacle.

plastic cover comes off housing on starter, behind it it male version of grounded pul, just stick femaole end of extension over it and push start button.
(switch on, choke on, gas on, prime 2-3 time first)

Make certain the chutes are all clear of anything. Prime the Gas by pushing in the bulb about 3-4 times, then press the electric starter button for 5 seconds. If it does not start, try several times. , but do not push the starter for more than 5-7 seconds each time(it will burn out) . If nothing happens reprime the fuel.

This isn't a mower, it's only limited by your ability to turn it yourself. you can separately lock / unlock each drive wheel, with one turning freely, it turns easier but doesn't have as much traction. With both wheels locked, it's still pretty easy to turn, biggest thing with these blowers is to not fight it, let it drive itself, never push! If it gets stuck, push down on the handles / put the weight on the wheels and she'll pull through.

You can choose two wheel or one wheel drive. If you choose one wheel drive I believe it would be considered zero turn. You can go into Home Depot and test it. There are pins down on the wheel hub that allows you to engage or disengage each wheel. Engaging just one wheel lets you pivot and turn the machine easier.

The first think I would look at is to make sure the auger belt is on both pulleys if it is then the next step is to adjust the auger cable. This procedure is outlined in the owners manual. If neither of these steps cure the issue you may want to contact a local Ariens dealer. To find one go to www.ariens.com and click on the where to buy link and look for dealers that offer service. I am guessing it is a belt cable adjustment but if it is something more a dealer may have to look at it.

Ask to your local HD customer service. It's possible that they can assemble the machine for a fee or, like in my case, a third party assembled it before the delivery. I am confident that in some way they would find a solution for you.

If white glove is available the machine will be set up and delivered by an Ariens servicing dealer. If White glove is not available in your area the snow blower will come unassembled in a box.

I think the directions call to drain the gas but i do not. To answer your question just run the blower until it runs out of gas.

I put fuel stabilizer in all of my gas cans which are then used in my mower and snowblower.

I will note this is my 3rd season with this blower and i store mine in a barn during the summer...well a few weeks ago i discovered the tube from the primer bulb was rotted away. I will note the manual does say to store in doors and a barn can be debatable as to if that is in doors or not.

I used a small liquid transfer pump to remove the fuel. It's just a rubber bulb with 2 hoses attached to either side.

I ran my and let it run dry. Another option is to tip it over to the side.
Another option is to find the fuel line and disconnect it.

You can remove the drain plug under the carburetor and let the fuel drain this way.

The gas can only be drained by siphoning, but if you run the unit till almost out, any remaining gas, as long as you are using a quality stabilizer with it, should be fine. I have had my unit for 4 years now, and always leave gas with stabilizer in it over the summer and just start it up around September and it is always ready to do its job come the snowstorms in January.
