Try pressing 'TEMP' then 'LIGHT'. You may have to do this a couple of times.

If you don't have a 'TEMP' button, either the temperature up or down will also work.

There are three modes, ECONOMY (EC / ECO / ECON), SLEEP (SL / SLP) and STANDARD (ST / STD). For everyday use keep it on STANDARD mode.

I have worked on RS systems for many years and have not yet run across one that hums. I would think that it may be coming from one of the relays or a light dimmer, if you have one installed. Unless you are well comfortable working with high voltage, call out a tech to isolate the source and determine if any repair is necessary. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

If this is an outdoor spa near trees, its almost a guarantee that the impeller is blocked with debris (pine needles can cause this in a hurry)

If the impeller is clean of debris and this is still happening, replace you pressure/flow switch.

From their website
Our multi-fuel pellet stoves can burn dried wheat, corn or wood pellets. Multi-fuel stoves, unlike just wood pellet stoves, are the first heating option that allows you to burn all three environmentally friendly fuels in the same stove. The Environmental Protection Agency rates multi-fuel stoves as the most energy efficient stoves available.
