SOURCE: my little giant 554425 will not come on

Hi,
Either the float is stuck or the pump is stuck...
To release the float a good shot to the side of the pump is all that it will take....
If that does not work then a few screws and the top will come off.. the pump is a very simple spinner.. make sure ther is nothing jammed in there...
if that all checks out replace the unit, the motor is shot....
you should be able to find a new one at a HVAC supply house for around fifty bucks...or check www,grainger.com for a replacement condensate pump.

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

Little giant pump 554425 pumps water every second continuously. What could cause the problem?


It sounds like it there is a bad check valve but I can only guess. The part number you gave is for the switch. A better description of the problem would be helpful.

Hi,
The float switch went bad... probably because of the water...you could replace it, but the parts are hard to get and with the time involved it will be easier and cheaper to replace it...

How do I wire the safety overflow switch to my furnace humidifier thermostat? I have a Little giant VCMA-20ULT and a Aprilaire 700.


The overflow switch needs to be wired in a manner that interrupts the HOT (black?) side of the wires going to the water inlet valve or it's circuit.

The VCMA-20ULS pump is not shutting off


These pumps have a float arm inside that tell the pump when to turn on and off, it sounds like your arm is stuck or broken. The top of the unit can be taken off of the reservoir to check for damage.

Good luck
