@robinb why do you think it is in gear? You checked the safety switches?

Try rocking the lawn mower will attempting to shift the gear selector or you can raise the rear end to suspend the tires in the air and move the wheels while trying to shift into neutral. the gears are probably locked and just need to be wiggled to get them to release . this will often happen if you stop on an incline . Hope this helps
