Trigge on an SP list when an item is modified

I created a flow that is triggered when an item is modified in a SP list.  It works but it does not stop running. It is a simple flow with three condition  steps.  Each condition checks for a number in a field.  If it eq 1 then send this email,  if 2, send this one and if 3 send this one.  It completes the flow by updating the SP list field back to 0

 

My issue is the flow does not stop.  It creates a flow for each step and then does it all again a few seconds later. I am getting thousands of flows in no time.  It is as if the SP list is being modified all the time.  What is wrong? should it do that?

Re: Trigge on an SP list when an item is modified

OK I solved this. Doh! The last step did the update was acutally triggering a modification to the SP list again so in reality I had created a permanent loop.  Removed it and all OK now
