Question about Vacuums
That fan has an electronic (computerized) control board which sometimes malfunctions. Nothing new there, right?
The problem is that the cost of the repair can excede the price of a brand new replacement, with a warranty to boot.
You may take it to a service depot and get it checked out, provided you get an estimate and this is done free of charge.

I had that problem with 2 fans of that model. I removed the fan cover and vacuumed out dust, pet hair and then loosened the fan lower drive attachment screw, and the top cover and upper bushing mount. Lifting gently upward while pulling on the fan lower axle from the top, the fan cylinder can be slid back and removed. This exposes the motor drive spindle. After cleaning the spindle area, I supported the assembly and temporarily plugged the unit in and confirmed that the motor was stuck and would turn if assisted. The manual Control unit worked and the remote as well. After cleaning and treatment with light penetrant followed by several drops of lubricant the unit worked fine with no resistance to manual rotation and fan coasted easily when assembled and powered on and off. It may not be a permanent fix but shows quick responses to speed changes and a forceful air flow now. Good luck!
