RED/GREEN LED error code. To reset the error code,
switch the selector to OFF, and then back to REMOTE
or ON. If the ignition command again fails, the module
will emit an LED error code, prior to going back into
LOCK-OUT mode. Contact your dealer for service if
this occurs.

Note: If the module is in LOCK-OUT mode, resetting the


circuit breaker to the appliance will also reset the module.

Note: For units installed in Australia, the residence’s 220/240


wall outlet to which this appliance’s power cord is connected,
must be wired to an in-line on/off switch. This is required for
servicing and/or resetting the control module in the event of
a control module LOCK-OUT.
