Is the water geting into the tank from the vent (overhanging pipe) or from the feed (bottom of tank). If the latter thats a symptom of cylinder coil problem. If its that former its pumping over. If pump on setting 3 turn it down to 2 and see what happens. Could be a blockage. Usual place is where the feed pipe joins the primary circuit.

In any event I think you need to get someone in to look at it for you.
