Default T-18 Guidance

I recently acquired a new Jet Legand T-18 turbine, and am having some problems getting the ecu to respond correctly. The specific problemI am having is after programing the ecu to the transmitter, when I raise thethrottle trim to the full position, the ecu displays “ready”. When thethrottle is then advanced to the full position, the ecu displays “cooling”, andthe starter engages. When the throttle is then lowered to the idleposition the ecu displays “burner on” then after a short time displays “glowbad”. I have checked to make sure the start, run and radio settings arecorrect. Can anyone please advise as to what the problem may be, and how toresolve it? I am very familiar with the Xicoy based FADEC ECU and their operation.
