Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Which lights are blinking on the door exactly? Does the start light go solid for 3 seconds when you press the start button? Or?

Light keeps blinking. Lights blinking are 4 hr delay & start

Yes, you are not signed up for a subscription. But that being said, the light should turn solid when you press the start button, even if it didn't think that the door was shut. Then it should flash after 3 seconds if the door hasn't been shut. If it won't stop flashing your touchpad itself is just bad and it's not sensing that you press the start button. The entire touchpad would need to be ordered and replaced to fix this issue I'm afraid to say.
