Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

This is a motor related fault..

Either the brushes of the motor are worn out (brushed motors), the motor is jammed, or the tacho of the motor is detached/disconnected.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
any solution?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Take off the rear panel of the appliance..

Check that the motor connections are connected properly.. If not, connect them

If yes:

Take off the motor

Check that the tacho is attached at the rear of the motor (re-attach if necessary)

Undo the brushes and make sure that the length of the brushes is 10mm or more (If less change them)
