Sears Spreader Model 486.24321 wheels and support plate locked up


Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the spreader being locked up. I know how frustrating that is.

The owner's manual covers 'Locked up Spreader' in the Service and Adjustments section of the manual. It is covered on page 9, and will likely help you get the issue resolved. I would recommend lubricating the all the points in diagram 15 of the manual once the adjustment is done.

my settings on my 486.24321 seem to be off.


Thank You for choosing Sears Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number 486.24321 and here are some directions I was able to locate from the owners manual(page 7- 9). 

Position the flow control mounting bracket.
• Push on flow control arm until it locks in "OFF" position.
• Slide flow control mounting bracket along tube until
closure plate in bottom of hopper just closes.
• Snug the 1/4" lock nuts just enough to hold flow control
mounting bracket in place.
• Set adjustable stop at "5".Pull flow control arm against
stop.Verify that closure plate has opened about half way.
• ifclosure plate does not open half way, it may be
closed too far at "OFF". Adjust position of flow control
mounting bracket until closure plate will open about
half way at "5" and still close when arm is locked in
"OFF". Tighten 1/4" lock nuts.
