Question about Garden
Cutting under plants is always risky as there could be anything under there. Animals are bad to drag things under them.
You may have hit something that bent the blade, bent the crankshaft, or sheared the flywheel key. First I would check for a bent blade and then check the other things.
Without see the mower in person it will be hard to tell exactly what is going on so you are probably better off carrying into a local shop to have it checked. Here in the US if the mower cost around 100 usd we usually tell the a customer just buy a new mower if it much more damage beyond a bent blade or sheared key in this case.

Your battery is dead. Replace it.
In the winter keep a smart trickle charger on the battery to prevent it from discharging. Lead/acid batteries lose 1% of their charge per day and are basically junk in 3 months. They have to be kept charged.

Mine did this.
It means that either not enough gas is getting into the engine. The gas you pump in when you prime is enough to start the engine but not to keep it going.
There could be several things that cause this.
1. Old fuel:
Solution: Replace the fuel. Dump out the old stuff. If it is a year old it won;t work.
2. A dirty carburetor:
Solution: Clean the carburetor.
Easy carb clean:
Pull the bowl off and use carb cleaning solution to clean it. (you can buy carb cleaning solution a Wal-Mart in the automotive section. I have also heard acetone will work but I have not tried it.) Make sure not to loose the little parts like the pin.
Better carb clean:
pull the carb off the machine and clean each part with carb cleaner. There is a youtube video someone else posted on how to do this.
3. Your gas/air flow is not adjusted properly.
Pull off or out the air filter. Try to start it.
If the machine runs longer there are two options: The air filter is dirty so replace it, or the air flow is not adjusted proberly. There should be a screw like thing sometimes called the "main jet" that you turn to adjust the air flow. It is on the carburetor side or bottom.
If the machine dies faster or won't start there is probably too much air flow and by removing the filter you added more air. Adjust the "Main Jet" as above.

sounds like the bypass lever might not be re-engaging, push it in firmly. OR, the brake is sticking. this, of course, is if the noise is a growl or a groan. if it IS a grinding noise, look for something stuck in the trans cooling fan or between the axles and wheels, otherwise it's inside the trans and that's not good [re: replacement]

Motor Brush problems maybe.
My cobb job fix is to leave the top on but unfastened. When this problem occurs I flick the brushes (pull the spring back and let them pop closed) with an electrically insulated screw driver. Seems to work. Cobb job though.

Just like motor vehicles when transmission gets stuck on a particular place without moving forward or backward it is a sign of a jam in one of the transmission levers. This is usually caused by lack of transmission fluid in the gears.When the fluid or grease depending on what your unit uses gets low the levers begin to grind against one another and therefore bring about such problems as you are facing. Although there is an off chance that the problem could also be from the automatic selector in this case the damage might not be so much probably an electrical fault.
First get an expert to check the auto selector if it is in good shape. If it is then i am afraid the problem is from the transmission levers.
Hope this insight has been helpful?
