Tilt the mower back so that you can exam the Bedknife.
Rotate the reel slowly by hand and see if it hits the knife. If all of the blades hits the knife. Readjust the knife.

It it only hits in one area of a blade. Check the blade for damage.

The bedknife looks like #71 in the photo and is located on the bottom of the mowers frame. This is not a drawing of your mower. Most reel mowers use the same basic design and the photo is just to show what part to check closely.

The Manual should have a section on how to adjust the Bedknife and at what clearance it should be set at.
