Drain pump running as in flood protect mode even with door open, At first I thought the float was sticking due to sludge deposit.

The main controller and circuit board may have a short. Switches take their instructions from the main board and if a power surge or power outage occurs, one or more diodes, resistors or capacitors are faulty.

Have a monarch type a 1/2 hp model be-e50 effluent pump which runs constantly and will not **** off what are some of the reasons ?

If it is a submerged pump, it needs a "float switch", This is a (usually) a ball made of plastic that floats in the liquid and senses the level gets to a certain height it will allow the pump to run until the level is down below that height.

Dishwasher wont stop working

You will have to check if the dishwasher pump is constantly running . If the only way you can stop is by turning off the power supply, the float switch has tripped. This means ther is either water collected at the base of the dishwasher due to a leak or the float switch is faulty. ther may be an error code on the panel if this is the case.

Used descaler yesterday, as pump was running for along time, this am motor is running continuously.

After turning power off to unit, open unit and locate float switch. Switch may be stuck in up posistion which will cause unit to run constantly. If float switch is down than switch will need to be replaced.

My sump pump wont kick off. There is no water in the sump and the float is fine, but the motor won't shut off. I unplugged the pump as to not burn up the motor, and thinking it may reset itself, but when...

Hello, the pump motor is controlled by the float switch. If your motor is running constantly even when you move the float switch around, then I would say that either the switch is shorted internally, or the wires going to the switch are shorted, thusly causing the motor to run. Is the float on a separate adapter to the pump, or is it wired into the pump?

Taking a shower the pump goes on an off constantly,is it not suppose to fill the tank up first then discharge the water?

Yes it is suppose to fill tank nearly full then pump down and shut off. I would check to make sure that the float switch is not hanging up on something or perhaps rubbing on the tank wall that is stopping the pump from running long enough to empty tank.
Check the placement of pump and float to make sure they are not hitting on anything. Adjust float as needed to allow for max pump down. Also make sure that there is a check valve installed in discharge line so that any discharge can not run back into tank when pump shuts off. Hope this helps you. Thanks

Just purchased a home with water ace sump pump.

That's the idea; if you lift the float the water starts pumping because it works off of that float. That type of pump is usually meant for water that is in a tub or bucket, so that when the water reaches a certain height and causes the float to rise allowing the pump to kick on. I use a pump like that to pump our the drained water from my washing machine in my basement, i let the water go into a big 50 gallon drum and then once the drum is half full i have it set so the float rises and pumps out the water. That being said, if you are putting this in your basement at floor level, you would need to get a 10 gallon bucket meant for sump pumps (you can get one at your local home store) and rent a jackhammer if your basement is concrete and put the bucket in the floor and the sump pump in the bucket, this is called a sump pit. Another option is to get whats often called a "floor ******" pump. Its a pump that sucks the water out when it reaches around a half inch of depth and it can be used in several feet of water (I've used these as well, there is no float involved), and it can be set on level ground there is no sump pit needed. The one thing with my pump you may not want, is that it's constantly running because its constantly monitoring for water so that a lot of water will not build up (especially if water can damage some thing in the surrounding area) . You can check out all the types at your local home store.

Pump runs extensivly and makes a terrible noise. Could this be a faulty float switch?

The tank cork/flapper is leaking by and the float can't reach shut off level. Replace the flapper in the tank and by by constant runnning and noise.
