Message "food" in window after putting in timed cook. Want to enter just the second

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

About a week.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes. Isn't their just an adjustment in the buttons?

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of the appliance? And has it done this before?

It's a GE purchased July this past summer. It had not done it before a week ago.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Don't think so. Oh I did just unplug it to try to reset it. Didn't work.

Can you clear it or Cancel it? Also when you unplugged it did you do it for a full minute and did the display come back showing FOOD?
