Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
Does the red light flash twice each time you go to use it?

Without the information requested I can only provide generic advice at this stage, but happy to elaborate once you provide the addition info.
For now I hope you may find this initial guidance useful.

A flashing red light indicates a fault with the battery, and likely a replacement battery is required.

You can source a replacement battery here for £70
