HMI Momentary button Gets stuck with N/O Bit of PLC

I have two dynamically tagged momentary button for each of this START and STOP bit. Some reason, most of the time, B10.0 get stuck and latched in PLC, this causes not able to shut the motor down. Its control value is assigned to its respective tag as bidirectional with 2.5 sec, but still it gets hung up.
Any one experienced this type of problem or I am doing some thing wrong. ?

Quick, someone summon @pturmel to explain why momentary buttons are terrible!

edit: this will have to suffice until he shows up

If you’re not doing press and hold to move type control, you want the HMI to set the command and the PLC to reset it; don’t rely on the HMI to reset it (for many reasons). If you were doing press and hold to move style control, it’s more complicated.

This thread, going back some years, is the most detailed discussion of the problem:

Just out of curiosity, which PLC is this being run in?

Westlam, it is on SLC 500…
