Question about Toro Garden
The self propel system uses a type of racheting pinion drive that sometimes gets greased up and wont release like it should.
You would need to remove the wheels and pinions and look at the shaft ends for a key, a ball and a spring. This is the "pawl" that locks the wheels going forward and rachets when the wheels go backwards.
Clean up the parts of all the aluminum colored grease and reoil with something lighter. 3 in 1 would do nicely. Reassemble.
Now the next time you start going backwards and it jams...just push the mower forwards slightly without engaging the drive and see if the unit doesnt free itself.
Good luck and be careful!
