Never mind I am through with conversations

Try swapping the blue and red wires on control board from transformer.SEC1 and SEC 2.

Expert:  airheatman replied 12 months ago.

It is not unusual for polarity to get reversed if utility company changes out a transformer down the road.

If changing the blue and red does not solve issue you will need to replace the board.
