Default locks up in Reverse

Electric Melex goes fine in Forward "under power or pushing"but even it wants to resist going in reverse. I can spin the brake drum on the motor and it will back up .

Is there some kind of brake in the rearend that would cause this to happen like a run away brake control????

If the motor brake is not engaging (binding) in reverse then I would guess a broken brush holder or spring in the motor is causing this.
