Put a piece of plastic over the fuel fill and screw the cap back on. Now tip the machine on it's nose and remove the belly pan. Have a look at the friction wheel, it should not be touching the disc with the drive disengaged.

Then either a bearing is seized or something is jammed or broken. Should be easy to spot, it is a simple system.
