The red light indicating tank has only 2 litres capacity left?
If the tank is empty i would think that the reed switch has stuck on and you may need to strip the unit down. or perhaps a god old thump with the heel of your hand may release it.
I have given you the link to the schematics for the unit this will help you understand where the switch is.
