Is it blinking 7 times in a row then a pause?
Expert:  william replied 5 years ago.

Control is programmed to

stop the current cycle and

not allow any further

cycles if it suspects a

faulty heater (no

temperature increase

detected in heated

intervals). Control blinks

the Clean LED 7 times in

repetitive fashion and

disables the Start/Resume

key until cleared.

Running Diagnostics clears the control and

allows it to operate again. If heating problem

is not corrected, though, the control will stop

running again on next cycle.
