2012 Ariens Platinum 24 Wont Move and Leaking at Wheel

I have a year old Ariens Platinum 24. Yesterday, it was moving forward (without the auger engaged) and just stopped. Lever depresses but cable won't move or release from drive box (spring just stretches). It appears the cable is stuck but strange that it just stopped moving going forward. Also noticed that the left wheel hub appears to be leaking grease?

I expect that when i pull it apart that the friction disk is gone (not sure why after 1 year and only about 10 times of use) but the grease around the left wheel hub is interesting.

Any comments or help appreciated. Also, does anyone know if there is a Service Manual available for thus unit? If not, is there one for a similar unit available?

Thanks.

That sucks. Ariens does have manuals on their website.

Yep... does suck.

Checked Ariens for the Service Manual. Customer service says it is not available. waiting for one of the technical service representatives to call me back... (not holding my breath).
