Logically, it worked before, what changed? The cable broke. Do not adjust, then you have two problems. Fix the cable first.
You are not done. Disconnect the cable, lift up on the "arm" while slowly turning the wheel until it just drags, back off, then tighten the cable. I find that with new cables, one has one good hard squeeze in adjusting the cable to "stretch" or seat it. Once done, you must add clearance if you disconnect the cable. You have already done so, so leave a little room. However, your brake is what our "kids" call soft. Lifting the arm will eliminate this. Best of luck.
