Recon Stuck in gear

Ok I have just purchased a 2004 recon es for $350 that is stuck in gear. I cannot shift it manually either. I can put all my weight on the foot shift and I can pull up on it as hard as possible and it will not budge. I was wondering if anyone has had this happen before, and if there are any simple fixes to this before I go tearing into the motor.

Why do you keep posting the same question over and over? It's already been answered in the other topic by Helmut and I gave you a link to your manual. Why don't you just keep it in there?

Download the manual and go to Chapter 20. That's about as easy as I can say it. It will tell you how to troubleshoot the problem.
