F21 is a motor fault on these.Now to be honest most of the time it's worn carbon brushes In the motor.Now these can be replaced and to be honest is worth fixing as for an engineer to call out and replace them you are look at about the £80 mark.But if it's the motor itself then that isn't worth it. But I will say 8 times out of 10 it's just worn carbon brushes that causes this.If you need anymore info then just get back to me.Regards
