Hi, this sounds like a motor failure, it may be the motor has burnt out or seized.
Some time it can be due to an electrical \ board failure, however without removing the case and testing the components with a multi meter I cant really diagnose which part needs replacing.
More often than not motors just needs a new pair of brushes, the good news is that your not going to be wasting your time calling out an engineer for something you can fix by simply unplugging the appliance, or holding in a button, this is a hardware fault, but one which shouldnt be overly costly to repair.
