The problem is not that you tripped the circuit breaker. Problem is that your disposer is jammed. Over time, food particles may accumulate in the grind chamber and baffle. Here's what to do: 1. Place stopper in sink opening and fill sink halfway with warm water. 2. Mix 1/4 cup baking soda with water. Turn disposer on and remove stopper from sink at same time to wash away loose particles. If that doesn't help, you have to release the disposer jam. 1. Turn off disposer and water. 2. insert one end of self-service wrenchette into center hole on bottom of disposer. (It's a funny looking slightly "S" curved tool.) 3. Reach into disposer with tongs and remove object(s). Allow disposer motor to cool for 3 - 5 minutes, then lightly push red reset button on disposer bottom. (It maybe indented so almost unoticeable.) If motor remains inoperative, check service panel for tripped circuit breaker or blown fuses.
The first thing I would do is unplug pump and disconnect discharge pipe. Then remove pump from pit and check float switch to see if there is anything catching on it that would stop pump from running. While you have pump out of the pit you can wash it off and spray water around base to clean inlet to impeller, also clean float assembly. Install pump and hook up discharge pipe and plug it in. When you put the pump back in the pit make sure that it is sitting so that the float is free to move. If you don't want to remove and clean pump then make sure that float is free to move where it's at. I hope this helps you. Thanks
Most sump pumps are sealed so they have no way to add oil. I would see if your pump discharge line has a check valve installed in it.It should have a check valve installed so that waste can only flow away from pump.Otherwise the pump can cycle for a short period,shut off and have water in vertical pipe flow back into sump basin causing pump to cycle again. Also if your pump does have a check valve in it make sure that it doesn't have anything caught in it that would stop it from closing completely. Some pumps have a check valve installed on the pump. It is also possible that you may have something caught in the pump impeller. you will need to remove pump to inspect the impeller. Hope this helps you. Thanks
try backflushing with high pressure water(carwash) if that doesnt work you have to remove the bottom plate to expose the impeller and remove debri,gasket will probably have to be replaced(silicone) will do
youn will need to change the pump if it is 9 year old, it had a good life but when they work in shalow water is one ting once you submerge it it doesn't pump, it has just lost it power and not worth taking it all apart and replacing the parts, the impeller is worn out and thats where it gets it's pressure from how it turns to pull the water out and force it thru the outlet,,
Sorry to say, but it does sound like the pump is fried. It should come on(run) when it's plugged in. The fact that the water surrounding the pump was hot is a good sign that the pump was way over-heated. Also, that oil in the water is likely from the pump. Oil is used in the pump for lubrication and to water proof the inside of the pump.
The only thing I can recommend is to see if the bottom of the pump has a removable strainer or plate, and if so, see if debris has gotten inside and bound up the impeller.
I found a replacement switch which is placed in series with the pump power plug. However when I removed the original switch and plunged the new switch I discovered that the pump motor spins but it does not pump. I installed a new pump.
hi there first you need to get it cleaned out the best you can so you can see inside the disposer look at the verry middle of the disposal there you will see a bolt that needs to be removed it may be a special kind of bolt so just be prepared for that most hardware stores also sell a tool to help remove the bold and blade ...l after that bolt is removed you should be able to remove the blades than undo the pipes that are connected to it and any bolts and nuts ect ect. than pull out the unit if there is any silicone that seaoled the unit in it will be kind of hard but not impossiable to remove ok.
