The design is quite simple with one wheel driving a bevel gear in a gear box. If the wheel turns the axle shaft and the center pin in the spreader with the retainer/cotter pin does not turn it is likely something has failed in the gear box.
If both wheel spins and the axle does not turn than the drive wheel has disengaged the axle shaft and the cotter pin in the drive wheel needs to be replaced.
The compounds used in the spreaders are corrosive. Usually the gears and axle become bound due to corrosion. By oiling the bearings and wiggling the wheels they will free up,

Had same problem. Empty contents into a bucket, tip it over and push wheels together. Apparently right and left wheel axles pull out of the gearbox that run the propeller. I think if you can see the flat part of the axle, it has pulled out. Push the wheels together and the axle flat part will engage the gear box and spin the propeller.
An axle or “beater bar” is located inside the bin next to an open slot in the floor. Attached to the axle is a series of beater arms or paddles. When the axle turns, the paddles break up the material and direct it toward the opening where it is deposited evenly on the soil.
