Fax "answers" in the middle of a phone call

HP Recommended
Laser Jet Pro MFP M283fdw

This is an all on one printer/fax/copier. 

The fax function is on the same analog phone line as my land line phone. 

Occasionally the fax will "answer" in the middle of a regular phone call making it impossible to continue the conversation. 

How do I keep auto answer, but disable the answer function of there was no incoming call?
