1. Machine moves on its own without pulling handles if throttle is high enough.
2. With a small push it will begin moving on its own.
3. The machine will move if the throw handle is depressed. It will also throw.
4. speed handle locks up and becomes hard to change speed with.
5. When turned off the axle locks up.

Check and adjust the drive cable if needed. Also pull of bottom pan and check friction disk drive for any foreign objects. Mice nest etc.

Start of easy. Was the machine accessible to critters? If so tip machine over on its bucket. About 4 screws holding the bottom plate cover on. Take off cover and inspect for anything foreign. I find it's a big cause for drive problems during the early snow season. Then report back. That cover hides the drive assembly.

You can weld it shut in a container made of boiler plate and they'll still get in.
