Hi Lamont .. I would first check test the float switch and make sure that it is faulty, set it up in a tub of water and manually move the float switch. see if it cycles on and off. sometimes the float will get hung up on its support or on the edges of the sump pit. If the float switch is faulty then YES it can be replaced,. try a building supply store like home depot or the pl;ace where you got the switch originally.
Please Vote !!

Testimonial: "Great suggestion. Appreciate the quick response."
Sounds like the contact inside the float is stuck. It can be corroded and not letting the circuit open and that will keep the pump running.
If it had been fine but just started doing this, that is what I'd check. If someone could have accidentally wired it incorrectly when they were trying to fix it, perhaps they accidentally bypassed the float switch and have it "running hot" all the time.

The switch is at the top, and the float is supposed to push on the switch.
If there is anything between them, or the switch is stuck, it may not work right.
Push up on the switch manually with a piece of wood (don't like to use fingers with electricity and water), to see if you can operate it with more force.
If you can, then lift float to see if it is heavier than it should be, perhaps from leak or accumulated algae weight or something?
