You have to buy a new cable ,remove the cover plate ,mark the wires before removal. (Colour) etc.Peel back the new wires and fit them exactly the same way as they came off,or get a professional to do the job.

SOURCE: I want to replace an impeller for a Little Giant submersible pump

This is a plastic impeller on a brass hub. If the impeller is loose it is probally cracked or overheated and melted, ether way you will have to break the impeller off of the hub then you will need to break hub loose from shaft. You can do this by putting pump in a vise and putting a pair of vice grips on hub and giveing them a sharp hit in a counter clockwise direction. you will need to replace the seal and impeller and should check to be sure than you can get these parts before you start.

SOURCE: How to Replace Little Giant Water Wizard Utility Pump Power Cord

Yes, If it goes together it will come apart. If it is the one I'm thinking of if you take the base apart there will be through bolts that run through the whole pump, remove these I want to think there are some that are short and these hold the base to the motor but they may be behind the impeller. Be warey as I'm not sure. But once the through bolts are out you should be able to carefully remove the top. Some have very frail gaskets here so be gentel. Once you have the top free there will be a compression nut holding the cord before pulling cord through use a light sand paper to clean the cord so the part you pull through will be fresh enough to seal. Don't lube the cord this will keep it from sealing. Pull it hrough and make your repair and put it back together the way it came apart. Use a sharpie to mark the top and housing as you take it apart. When finished loop some cord through pump handel and tie it off so this takes the weight in the future to keep from having the same problem again. good luck

My Little giant wgp-65-pw has tripped my gfi repeatedly. any idea why? No shorts in the cord are apparent


if a pump connected to a gfci outlet trips , then the gfci has detected a high resistance "shortage" inside pump and has disconnected power , this "shortage" can be nearly in detectable from human standards(shock) , but gfci picks it up
most likely pump seal has failed and water has gotten inside pump !! it only takes one drop to do this !!

My new Little Giant 8-CBA Pump is hooked up underwater and plugged in. Not a sound. Electricity is working. And it's the same pump we have had for the last 7 years.


You say it's new? On some pumps they will secure the float switch when shipping. Be sure you followed directions and removed anything that may interfere with the switch.

The pump keeps running


I had the same problem. After replacing the diaphram and switch I noticed a little pin hole that allows water into the diaphram area was phlugged. I cleaned it with a piece of wire and now works like a champ. Kept notes and spare parts taped to the pipe for further use.

How do you replace a broken power cord


due to the seals involved and the increadable possibility of leaks happening i dont recomend that you try replacing a power cord on a submurged pump, the risk of shock is just to great for the benefit !! the plug end now that can be replaceed however , contact any licened electrician they can handle that for you.

My little giant water pump model 4mdsc has three


Sounds like you may have a 220V pump. So you need to confirm that this is a 110V pump and not a 220V pump. There should be a label or more info on line with any other info on the label. If you can confirm that this is a 110V pump, then put a standard plug on the cord - the green is ground and the other two can be wired to either blade of the plug. If you do have a 220V pump and you connect it to 110V anyway, the pump will perform poorly and will probably overheat and fail.
