one year old YT624 issue when going backward.

Fremen
Hi,

I have an issue with my almost new YT624 when going backward.
Sometime it is not moving and if it move it really slow.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

Eric

Can you verify that your hydro reservoir has correct level of hydro fluid in it (should be between first and second mark).

If yes is the fluid still clear in color? When discoloured this early it tells me it it may have gotten contaminated or if hydro is failing it can discolour if you leave hydro unit engaged and its not moving... Fluid gets burnt look.

It may be simple hydro cable adjustment (cable stretched) where the cable is not giving enough movement on the hydro arm to  engage reverse direction on the pump. Unless your comfortable in doing this adjustment I would recommend engaging your Yamaha dealer as your hydro unit may need best case scenario minor adjustment or worse case replacement/repair. Either way it should all be covered by warranty.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply.
If there is adjustment, I can do them if the proper instructions.  Is
there a maintenance manual or something out there ?  The owner manual
doesn't have much...

I verified the hydro fluid level and it seem low but the owner manual
doesn't say what are the step to verify it.

What I mean is they is some oil level you have to let the engine run
for a while before checking.

I did check it before and it did look fine at the time but this
morning without running it look empty.

So i'll go get some and fill it.

Thank

Eric

RE: one year old YT624 issue when going backward.

Good afternoon,

Your newer generation Yamaha Snowblower takes 10w30 oil in the Hydrostatic drive system.

It should not need topped up for 7-10 years as this oil is simply pumped forward and backward and is a sealed system.

If you need hydro fluid you must have a leak of some kind, and with that in mind your machine has a 3yr warranty, no need to trouble shoot it, simply take it to your local Yamaha dealer who sells Snowblower as he will know it best, get you up and running fast.

If you need a service manual email me back, and we can sell you one on a CD $50 + 14.00 shipping and provincial tax.
