IF it is a trike that freewheels (you can coast without peddling), then either the freewheel in the transfer box is broken or if you are lucky, it just needs to be flushed out with solvent, and relubricated. I would get a 12oz spray can of Tri-Flo and blast it (the whole can) through the freewheel from one side.

The freewheel looks something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Shimano-SF-1200-Single-Speed-Freewheel/dp/B001GSOJB6/

Of course, there is very good chance that the above guess is not correct, as you have provided very little information, and no pictures.
