    Hello everyone. I have a john deere 928e snowblower, i.d number lm0928e003421. Sometimes while going forward for no reason it stops. I have adjusted the drive cable, I replaced the spring that tensions the drive belt to a stronger one (per j.d recommendations) I have also cleaned and sand papered the friction disk and plate numerous times all of these things did very little to remedy my problem. When it does work the drive is very strong and the problem is very random. While its acting up I shake/shimmy the machine with the handle depressed and eventually it goes again, strong as ever. Any advice or help would be appreciated greatly.

    Also, john deere's next solution was to upgrade the plate springs on the friction disk but this snow blower has done this since new so why would it even come with weak springs?

    Done since new? Then this should of been a warranty job.

    It was at the shop twice for it (3 weeks each time in the winter) only to do it again wothon hours of operation. Your not really the top priority at the dealership when you buy from lowes i guess.

    Is there any possibility the drive disc and or driven disc are getting wet?

    I know the access plate that you take off to see the friction disk is rusty so it could be getting wet. Im not sure how though there arent any holes or anything. Would moisture cause this problem?

    Really wish I could justify buying a honda snow blower man those things look sweet.
