Switch off, unplug the unit and clean the metal grid and horizontal bands thoroughly with the supplied brush.
There may be an obstruction preventing the fan blades from turning. Ensure unit is off and unplugged.
Then remove the capture basket and look inside the trapper. Examine the fan blades to ensure there is no obstruction. Then plug in unit and switch on power.
