1) The pump is cavitating (sucking in air) could be not enough water flow to it, or a leak.
2) The bearings could be bad or misaligned

Sump pump won't stop running

by the sounds of it, you are not in a very snowy climate in the northern hemisphere, or you are in a heat wave. the sump is used for getting rid of ground water near the footing of the walls so the soil doesn't become too loose (or wash away) and your house does not sink. right now, it sounds as if the sump pump is taking the water from the ground, pumping it back on your lawn, it soaks back into the ground in to the sump, and continues over and over. see where it's unloading. the outlet tubing should let out at least 10 feet from the house. if the hose is broken or fell off near the wall of your house, the expelled water is soaking back into the ground and right back into the sump. there may also be an underground water issue. if your water table is unusually high or there is a water main break, you'll have the same problem.

Pump continues to make noise as if its cavitating when there is no water to pump.

If there is no water to pump then it is cavitating. It should turn off when the sump is emptied down and the float drops onto the switch arm

sounds like you need to get that pump off, take it apart and give it a good cleaning in vinegar. I have 135gal reef tank and do mine about once every 6 mos. You need to have cut off valves on each side so you can take it off when you need to. Go to They can answer any question you've got!

Hammering sound at shutdown

it has a check valve to keep the water from going back into the pit when it shuts off, depending on how high the pipe goes up when it stops pumping the water closes the check valve in which the noise, unfortuintly there is no quick fix, even changing the check valve it could still make the sound

Pondmaster 250: Impeller or motor broke?

pondmaster 250 comes with a 3 year manufacturer warranty you should just exchange it for a new one. Overheating from low water sounds like the issue but as long as the shaft and housing are not scarred from debris they will replace without any questions
