Probably sticking pawls due to dried out lube. As jeepr sugested, lay the wheel on it's side, freewheel up, and dribble light oil into the seam between the rotating outer shell and the inner fixed core. Rotate the cogs while doing this to distribute the oil. Unless something is broken inside, that should free up the pawls and make it work properly. If the oiling doesn't fix the problem, a new freewheel is required.
