make sure the blade is mounted on the top of the bottom plate. I know when I changed mine I bolted it to the bottom and it did that same thing. now it cuts like butter.

I don't know how,or when this started,but it sounds like your jiffy auger cuts too aggressive. Which means it cuts great with sharp blades,the aggressive blade angle binds as you cut through the bottom of the ice. You need to shim the blade to take less of a bite. Plastic milk jug makes good shim material.

Take less bite out of your arms.
