Pump stops while water is still in hole. It starts and shuts off. Bastment is still getting water in. I thought pump would stay on as long as water was still in window well.

    Just installed the same unit in my crawlspace. The manual states it will cycle for 15 minutes, and then run normally. It's been 30 minutes, and the pump is still cycling on/off, even though it's sitting in 4 inches of water.

Flotec Model FP4012-D8 stopped pumping water. I took pump apart except for small impeller housing edge break I can see no reason for no suction?????

Hi jandh40...

You have an air leak somewhere in your piping, housing of the pump or maybe the mechanical seal and that is causing your pump not to pump.
Try to disconnect the piping and hook a water hose up to the pump and turn the pressure on, it should show you where the air leak is by spraying water out of the leak area.

I have a Flotec FP0S1775A Utility Pump. It is in a section of my basement (flat) that is about 1.5 inches lower than the rest. Today is the first day the pump is being used and for the most part it is...

1 inch of water is probably not enough water to set off the pump. The water level must be high enough to float the switch ball beyond 90 degrees of level before it will activate the pump. The pump will not evacuate all of the water there will always be some water left in the tank this prevents the pump from a dry start.

I have the FPOF 360 AC model - 1/12 HP 350 gal/hr. The motor is working, but it is not suctioning any water. Thanks. Karen

I would take a drill and drill an eighth inch hole in the discharge pipe of the pump. I always do this
when installing a new pump, because sometimes the pump will get air in it, the little hole will vent
out the air. There will be water squirting out the little hole, but that doesn't hurt anything.

Hope this helps.

Flotec pump model FP 4112-08 will not pump over 35 psi

If it stops pumping at 35psi you need a new pressure switch. If it just continues to run but doesn't build more pressure the problem is more likely a plugged point or air getting in due to the water table dropping.

I have a 1 month old Model FPOS1775A Flotec pump. The discharge hose is 3/4 inch with a level run of 20ft.It pumps water but only at 2 and a half minute intervals even when fully submerged!!! I now have a...

If the pump is only pumping for a few seconds at a time it may be a problem with the control board. On two of mine, the 10mf 100v smd capacitor came loose. Resoldered and potted with hot melt glue. One of them is working with the other yet to be tested. Don't recall what the exact symptoms were, only that it wasn't continuously pumping water while submerged.
Unit is oil filled so should be dismantled in the upright position.
