water softener won't stop flowing!

When I reset the timer on my Culligan medalist softener today I accidently managed to trigger a recharge. It had just recharged last night with no problems - but today, the brine draw/rinse cycle does NOT turn off - 89-90 minutes later, water just runs and runs into the salt tank, then into the brine tank and out the drain pipe.

I checked on line and a few troubleshooting sites seemed to imply that the float (in the salt tank) might be stuck, but I checked and it's fine.

I finally had to hit bypass to turn the water flow off. Now I have hard water until I can get this resolved. HELP!

Anyone know anything about these notoriously finicky devices???
