You may want to toss this post up under repair.

But Heres my thoughts, I had this problem today. Your clutch isn't engaging or it isn't gripping the drum well. Either there is oil/grease in the drum causing it to slip or the clutch is damaged/broken. If its just oil/grease in the drum you can usually get by with spraying carb/brake cleaner in there and letting the drippings run out. This will allow you to grip and then start, probably have to do this a few times. If that doesn't work you need to take the cover of the end of variator and inspect the clutch. I think you need a puller to do this and I haven't been able to do it yet, so good luck.
