Hi Paul,

Have you checked this:

Hi Muhammad,

Very instresting thanks for the link, we found that the reset button on the front of switch does not quite touch the reset switch on the circuit board, we had to physically open the unit and press the reset button, we have now set the switch back to factory defaults.

many thanks for your support
