Check to see the front non drive wheel in the front is moving freely. Over time dust gets into the axle and gums up slowing the pulley to a crawl if it works at all. Fairly simple to remove and just clean out the pulley sleeve and then the axle itself. Use some oil and put it back together.

May not be what is wrong but I have fixed several for friends with various issues and this was a common problem.
