Cycles render sample amount wont go down, stuck at 14,000

As the title says, on this specific file no matter what I set my Samples at, it always tries rendering 14,000 of them. I have Squared Samples off, but other than that I have no clue what to do.
I’ve provided a screenshot of the settings, and will post any more asap upon request

You haven’t shown all the render settings or even supplied a demo blend file so I have made some assumptions:
Render size = 2396 x 1504 pixels
Tiles set to x = 16, y = 16
This would give a total of 14,100 tiles
You have not enabled ‘progressive refine’ in the performance settings so the render window shows the number of tiles, not the number of samples
