Little Giants are noted for having faulty float switch problems----even the new ones----a major HVAC company I worked for discontinued using them because of this----they remove 1 to 2 years worth of installed pumps and substituted another to because of warranty no heat/ac/flooded floors call backs and returned all of them to the mfg including all of the stock they had---for life of me I can't remember the name of the new ones---when the float failed it would shut down the furnace or ac and usually flood the floor by NOT pumping --- being a service warranty----the pump was replaced not repaired---they probably could of been repaired though with another float switch such as what could be done with yours---that's all I got--good luck

How to disassemble Little giant pump model#psm006?

thats why i like the little giant pumps they are put together with phillips screws not glued like them other guys , i do suggest that if you dissasemble pump and water has gotten inside , replace it not just seal it up and go , wont last long as that means the pump shaft seal has leaked , ther e has been a few folks that add dietary mineral oil to the inside , for use in very deep ponds (over 3 feet) they believe that helps keep the water out
