Engine starts ok,but when blades put into soil they do not turn
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
You can see the cable adjuster near the top of the right wellington boot

Drive wheels lock up when pull mower back
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
