My name is ***** ***** allow me a moment to review your question thoroughly. I'll do my best to answer your question and resolve your issue.
What you're seeing is called a watchdog error. It usually is due to a bad temp sensor or bad flow switch.
The other common cause of that is a bad circuit board, check the capacitors for bulged tops. They resemble small tin cans sticking up from the board. If your fill water is very cold, that may explain it also.
Also, make sure your sensor harness is plugged in correctly on the board.
