Question and Answers

Q:

I need the manual for the snow thrower model 536886621

A:

Hello Gary. I see that Fred posted a manual for that snow thrower in the above response. That manual is for a similar snow thrower that is made by a different manufacturer. I did not find the exact manual for your snow thrower available online but I did find manual for a model that is almost identical to your 8 HP 26" Dual Stage Snow Thrower. Here is a link for that manual: Owner’s Manual for Craftsman Snow Thrower Model 536.886811 . This manual is for a model that is made by the same manufacturer and it has similar components to yours. If you want the exact manual for your snow thrower, you can order it from this page: Owner’s Manual for Craftsman Snow Thrower Model 536.886621 . I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.

Q:

i have snowthrower md 536886621 917881051 Craftsman Snow thrower

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern with the pinion gear not staying engaged in the flywheel. 
 
I assume when you pull the starter rope on the recoil starter that the engine will spin over and start. If so, then we know the engine is not locked up nor is the cylinder full of gas causing a hydraulic effect.
 
Since you listed two (2) different model numbers of a snow thrower, I do not know which one you're having a starter issue with. It appears that both models have an electric 120 volt starter and pull rope on the recoil starter.
Based on your symptom, it could be a low voltage issue.  If you're plugging the starter power cord into a long extension cord, this could cause the starter to wine and engage but not spin the engine over. Try plugging the starter power cord directly into a wall outlet and see if will engage and spin the engine over.
It could also bad electric starter too. The torque of the starter motor and the threads on the starter motor shaft is what keeps the starter bendix/gear engaged to the flywheel when the start button is pushed and held. It may need a new starter motor assembly or just the armature or stator or also called the housing if the engine is not locked up.

Q:

I have a snow blower model 536886621. How do I lube the gearbox? What type lube do I use?

A:

The gear box has grease in it instead of oil. You can replace the 1/4 inch pipe plug with a zerk fitting and put some axle grease in it. Two pumps from a grease gun will be adequate.
