Not worked on too many of these, however it would suggest there is either wear in the screw shaft, or the crown wheel, you should also check the bushes the screw shaft runs in, if there is excessive wear the gears will not mesh properly.

I don't think there are any belts on the FG201 it is a cable driven clutch.
What has happened is either the clutch is worn or more likely the cable adjustment from the handle bar to the engine has got loose and the lever that look like a brake handle you pull to engage the engine needs adjusting. I would suggest you rotate the inline cable adjustment until it takes out the slack in the cable. it is very similar to a pushbike brake adjustment

Here is what's going on. I cleaned the wheel "dogs" or whatever you call them multiple times. This DID NOT fix the problem. Look at the cable that engages the forward movement (self-propel function). If there is any slack in the cable near the handle, then there is retained tension at the transaxle. Not enough to move the mower forward, but enough to keep the wheel from freely rotating backwards. I tipped my HRX217 on it's side and located where this cable engages the drive box. Lubricate the heck out of it and coerce it to move with needle nose pliers. After thorough cleaning and lubricating both ends of the cable, I am now able to move the mower backwards without lock-up. Hope this helps someone, as I found nowhere on the internet that this is what REALLY fixes this

My guess is a tiny piece of junk got stuck in the carburetor. Check the simple stuff first; it does have enough gas, you do have the gas on/off valve switched to ON, and you do have the choke open to start it.
Then watch this free video. I hope this helps!
