Try tilting it up into the service position, and then remove the belly pan, and take a look. If you don't see any issues, then snap some photos, and post them here, and someone will have some suggestions.

Yes but could be many things, If a friction disk is worn usually it cant engage the wheels but it may be something rusty or even a mouse made a nest inside it and jamming things up. It's surprising how many mouse nests I have come across inside of snow blowers, Mine included so get some pics and post them up and we can see if there is anything obvious.

Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

OH and go to a few different threads and make a few posts, You need 10 posts in different threads before it lets you post pics. I use photobucket for my pics

Im sure we can find your problem and point you in the right direction to repair. You might need 10 posts to put up pictures, heard it was changed to allow new members to post up instantly... but also heard that it still was not working. Like Rit333 suggested drop the bottom pan and see whats going on. Locked wheels should be easy to find problem. When friction disc contacts friction plate it turns the hex shaft its mounted on, which then connects a chain to a reduction gear double sprocket, which then connects another chain to a larger sprocket that drives the differential gear, then finally the axle & differential are driven from there. Here is a pixx of the drive assembly that i recently serviced, the differential & axle are removed and laying to the left on the cart. Please let us know what you find. Where are you located, possibly near a member that can give you hands on help.

Sort of, but when the wheels won't turn than the friction disk is suspect, but sounds like something is not releasing.

He's in Norway ! I'm be willing to go during the Summer, but on his Nickel, of course.

It may take me a few months to fix it though !

Shoot.... missed the location under his profile, guess Massachusetts is a little far for hands on from me !!!
I'll bet we still get the problem discovered. Hope he can do the repairs himself and save the repair bill.

thats correct im located in Norway :P if its the gearbox i don`t think its worth repairing, because of expensive parts :/
My mom told me that she was driving it when it just stalled, and then the wheels just locked. i will try to open it tomorrow with a friend that is mechanic so hopefully we will find the problem. and i will post you pictures!
