Keep re-generating Lets Encrypt Certificate

Hi I had Lets Encrypt certificate installed. Then i moved to DigiCert.
I deleted Lets Encrypt Certificate but time to time , it regenerates or recreates the certificate and takes the priority in my bindings. Why is it regenerating and how can i get rid of it. Any help would be appreciated.

Automated certificate renewal is one of the goals of Let’s Encrypt. ACME clients are often configured by default to automatically renewal all certificates they’re managing, or at least make it easy to set up. Conversely, to stop it, you might need to do something like delete or deactivate the certificate within the ACME client, disable the ACME client’s renewal cron job, or uninstall the ACME client.

We can’t say anything specific without more information. Can you answer the relevant questions below, about how you created and renewed the Let’s Encrypt certificate until now?
