Closing a Job - Dealing With Contractor

Contractor took a job he said would be 24 hours of work, 2-3 days was his estimate on Feb 11th. After 2 1/2 weeks the little work that was competed was due to my checking up and telling the contractor I need to get this wrapped up.
Contractor started Feb 11th, now it is March 8th and no more work is complete.
How should I go about closing this job and moving on to another contractor?
What I have thought about is,
Contacting the contractor and tell him we need to settle up so I can close this contract.
What I do not want to happen is the contractor billing me for the full 24 hours when the job was not completed. The effort was not there, maybe due to him being too busy.
I did not base my choice off hourly price, his rate is 16.87 per hour, he has around 1100 hours on oDesk and a 5 star rating, I thought I had a winner.
I am cautious as this is my first time on oDesk or using any service such as this.
