The problem is with the float switch. I have attached the manual. There is probably something keeping the float from falling back down. Check you sump basin and make sure nothing (including the power cord) is interfering with float.

How do you use the rainbow to **** up a large amount of water from an air conditioner tray


You simply begin with an empty water basin, turn the unit on, and gingerly slurp the water away. Do not plunge the nozzle into a pool of water. Afterall, this is a vacuum cleaner, it moves air and the water/debris you kick-up into the air, not a water pump. The standard basin has a maximum capacity of 2 quarts, before the unit effectively drowns. If you have the special larger basin, then it has a 4 quart capacity. If you are trying to remove a larger volume of water, then you will have to empty the water basin multiple times. Unfortunately, you have to keep a close eye on the water level, so that you do not drown the vacuum.

Machine starts its cycle but stop part way through and does not empty water.


Sounds like you need to clear out the drain pump. if you should be able to access the pump from the front bottom by opening the small door or flap unscrewing and removing the filter. If not then you will need to tilt the machine back as far as you can so you can access the underneath. You will see the small drain pump. Have a basin ready to catch any water that comes out when remove the pump which is only held in by 1 or 2 screws and twisted out or pulled out. If it is clear then try removing the pipe that goes from the pump to the base of the tub. Hope this helps

The water basin that receives and pumps out the excess water on my Aprilaire 600 humidifier runs incessantly, even when very little waters in in teh basin? Is there an easy fix? thank you


If you are referring to a condensate pump then the float might be stuck and causing the pump to run continuously. The best thing to do is turn off power to the pump and clean it out and make sure the float is free and not stuck.

Pumb only pumps a small amount out of the basin. Float needs adjusting to go all the way down and empty the basin. How do you adjust the float/bulb to travel farther down without shutting off after only a...


Flotec website shows several submersible sump pumps, and pump types:
http://www.flotecpump.com/asp/productapplication.asp?AId=28

Click product, then click on 'parts and literature' to access manual
Here is a Flotec manual:
http://www.flotecpump.com/pdf/FP525%2811-1-06%29.PDF

Manual for this type of sump pump says:
Quote from manual: Automatic float switch is sealed and factory adjusted for
most home sumps. Turn-on water level is 10" - 12" above
pump base. Turn-off water level is 4" - 6".

The manual also says that running the pump when dry will ruin the seals.
This implies that the water level setting is set so the seals will not be damaged

You might be able to dig the sump deeper, but I don't know if that meets your objective.

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.

I have a kenmore elite h3 washer - Bad Water Pump?


HI. this code represents a Long Drain issue.

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
• Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
• Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects(located, and mounted on the actual pump)
If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump

What is causing the drain pump to continue running


C1 - Partially Blocked Drain - This error will occur when dishwasher was unable to pump out water in less than 95 seconds. Check drain line for debris and blockage. If clear, check for a restricted drain valve in the pump. Check the pressure sensor for correct operation as it sounds like it may be defective and thinks that the machine is still full of water after it has emptied.

yes it should run continuosly,(at least untill the water level drops.) a more common instance withthis machine is that the drain line is blocked/restricted, or somethingis ninthe pump housing. it is even possible hat the pump impeller has dislodged from the housing and although it sounds as if its "pumping" its moving no water..usually in htis case your able to open the filter assembly and "pushback on hte impeller(normal impeller will not ,ove back" however if it was dislodged it will have foward play.i would even blow out the drain hose form the pump to the drain standpipe, just in case.
F02 is def a long pump out time and no ther ewill be no high speed spin with water in unit(or if it thinks thers water in unit)
