DTM snower blower auger (1998) stopped rotating. What may be the cause?

Heard a grinding noise then auger stopped rotating. Also looking for a manual for this machine.

    If the shear pins are not broken and the fan keeps turning (assuming it is a two stage machine) the brass crown gear has piled up. No idea on parts lists or manuals for that machine, I am not familiar with the brand.

    I had the same problem with DTM snow blower. Everything was fine but it suddenly stopped working. I was trying to figure out the reason but without success. In the end, I just tossed it on the rubbish heap and bought a new Snow Joe Ultra SJ621.

    Thanks God I have no problem with it right now. Hope it will work fine for a long time.

    If Auger is rotating and the Sheer pins are intact its the worm gear in the casing. Assuming the blades are not rotating well.  When you rotate the blades by hand and it grinds thats also an indicator.  $25 - 50 for for the gear. I just did three for customers. 2 hour job. Good videos on youtube.
