Question about Little Giant 10 Cia, 1/2 Hp, 83 Gpm Automatic Submersible Sump Pump 10' Power Cord
Pump only runs five seconds then stops for five seconds.then five seconds later starts again,there is always a five second delay,it has been doing this all night and still this morning starts and then stops every five seconds.
last night was the coldest night we have had this fall around 40 degres
not sure if that had anything to do with it.
any help would be greatly appreciated
Check the intake of the pump. It may be clogged with sludge or debris.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
Replace the check valve that is part if the discharge hose barb. When it fails the water trapped in the vertical section of the tube comes back into the tank and cycles the float on again causing what you describe. The best way to confirm this would be to watch the water level as soon as the pump shuts off and see if it climbs without any other source of water coming into it. If it is not rising then the issue is with the float itself and is not worth fixing; replace the unit in that case.
