Question and Answers

Q:

What would cause the auger not to stop when the lever is released on my Craftsman snow thrower model 536885920?

A:

The brake arm should have a spring attached to it. The spring should hook onto the arm and the other end of the spring to a hole or notch in the frame. I have provided you with a parts image below. The image should help guide you to where the spring connects to the frame. Once the spring is reinstalled, it should stop the auger. If the auger is still turning then adjust the belt. I have provided you with the instructions on replacing and adjusting the belt. The parts can be ordered from this link. Sears Parts Direct

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

My brake arm spring is also missing. I see the hole in the brake arm where part of the spring attaches, but I don't see "exactly" where in the frame it goes. Can you tell me where on the frame it attaches?

You can use any axle grease in the gearbox. I prefer white lithium grease. It seems to do better in the cold temperatures.
