Try to shut the power off to the unit for a full minute and power it back on that should clear it. If not you likely have a bigger issue with the control board and should get a tech out for that.

All I ask is please select the ***5 STAR RATING*** using the link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.
