The most common cause of this problem is low fluid levels in the tank reservoir. Check that first and be sure it isn't too low. Then get back to me if you still need help. Please include the name and system off the touch pad as most all the companies that provide leveling systems for the various manufacturers have multiple models. All follow ups are included in our fee.
