The Float Switch (2) automatically switches on and off at a water depth of approxi. mately 4 inches. The ON/OFF height can be manually changed by adjusting the Float Switch Lock.

To replace the switch, shut off power, remove wires noting all wire locations.
You may have to relieve pressure in the system by using water until the surge tank is empty.
I'm not sure about that.
You do have to either remove the switch from the piping by unscrewing it or remove the piping from the switch by removing the connector and unscrewing the connector from the switch.
Assembly is the reverse. You should use teflon tape of dope on the screw connection below the switch.
The procedure should take about a half hour but you won't have any water during this time.

Most likely just the age of the engine. It is not uncommon to have to de-carbon the valves, head, and top of the piston in a small engine after years of use.

Does the breaker to the pump pop when you raise the float up? If so, you have the same problem I had. I was bothered by the two cords coming out of the ground and plugged into an outside outlet since I have young kids playing around it. One of the cords was plugged into the back of the other cord's plug. I rewired the cords in a junction box. I didn't understand that the plug that was plugged into the outlet was actually a switch. When the float is up, it allows power to flow through the other electrical cord. By wiring both plugs to 120V, I basically wired the pump directly to power and the switch directly to power. My pump ran continuously for several months before I realized my error. Since the pump was always running, the float never was raised to the up position which would have popped the breaker. If you try raising up the float and your breaker pops, then you will know you did the same thing I did.
