1MY AUTO STOP MOTOR WILL NOT CLEAR THE UP AND DOWN SETTINGS.
THE ONLY WAY TO CLEAR THE AUTO STOP SETTINGS IS TO USE THE BLUE REMOTE CONTROL OR YOUR PHONE. MAKE SURE TO HOLD EACH BUTTON YOU PRESS FOR AT LEAST ONE SECOND. PRESS LOCK, LOCK, LIGHT TO ERASE THE PARAMETERS. YOU WILL KNOW WHEN THEY ARE ERASED BECAUSE THE GREEN LED WILL START BLINKING FAST AGAIN. IF YOU TRY IT AND IT DOESN'T WORK JUST SLOW DOWN YOUR BUTTON PRESSING. PRESS LOCK (HOLD FOR 1 SECOND AND LET GO) WAIT ONE SECOND AND THEN PRESS LOCK AGAIN (HOLD FOR 1 SECOND AND LET GO) WAIT ONE SECOND AND THEN PRESS LIGHT PRESS LOCK (HOLD FOR 1 SECOND AND LET GO).
