    My switch gets stuck in the up position causing the pump to stay on for very long periods. How do you change the switch. Is this something you should call a pro to do? Or can I go to a home improvment store and buy it and change it?

    I have a pedestal type sump pump and the motor won't shut off... The float is not stuck as it moves the switch arm freely up and down. I had it unplugged for the time being. Can this be repaired? Or, do I need to replace the whole unit? Mine is fairly new... maybe only about two years old. I wonder what the warranty is on these things. I am going to see if I can take it out to see that there is nothing stuck inside that activates the the pump even when there is not water... hmm...

    Do you have a check valve installed?

    Check to see if the float is stuck.if the float is constantly up it will keep running. some pumps have an adjustable float.

    What type of pump is it? A submersible meaning it is all under water. A pedestal meaning the motor is out of the water usually up a foot or two above the floor.

Check the sump hole to see if indeed water coming into the hole is activating the switch and the pump. If that is not the case, your switch may need to be replaced. good luck

Check pump pressure. Line tap 1/8 pipe plug on left side of bellhousing. No pressure means front pump exploded. If you have line pressure of at least 100 psi then check linkages to valve body.

No Power when power on off

You might have a faulty power supply. Electrolytic capacitors are a frequent failure component. I replaced the caps in two AOC televisions to fix them.

shut down the comp// restart and immed start hitting f 8 cont to get the advance boot menu//
select LKGC and once that is done hopefully your computer will boot perfectly//

Computor shuts down. screen goes to black. turn back on and get siren sound and screen says shut down due to thermal event. hit F4 to resume. had same problem a couple years ago and they replaced fan

try applying new cooling pest between cpu heatsink and cpu. Heat from cpu surface should be quickly transferred to heat sink. Either coolent problem or heatsink doesnot properly fit on cpu. But be carefull, you need an 'EXPERT' to do this, or you end up damaging everything.

My pump does not shut off when the float switch goes down

Good Morning -
I had the same problem with a freind's pump that used a free floating pump switch, first of all the sumpump hole was just barely large enough to accomadate a sump pump, I removed that pump and installed a sumpump that hat a short float connected to the top and bottom of the pump housing and my friend has had no problem.
I did build a short device to make sure the pump as'y stayed in that corner out of 2"pvc.
have a great day!!
