Little Giant 506065 - 2 did not work after 21 days, different pump better?

Are you running these pumps full-time, even if they're dry? If you are, that's far beyond their design. The sink should drain into a sump or cistern, then the pump should empty the cistern on demand from a float switch.

I don't know of any pump except possibly a bellows-type bilge pump, that can be expected to run full-time, even when dry.

Little giant WRSC-6 won't shut off

The vent should definitely be connected to a vent pipe. (Does waste water rise in vent pipe, or can it outgas to indoors? If the latter, maybe it would work not connected.) Mine just quit after 17 years; it would come on and not shut off. I figure it was either the switch assembly stuck on, a blocked output, or a failed pump. I pulled it all apart and found that an O-ring in the pump housing was hanging out of the seam. Owners manual warns against taking apart anything in the pump housing, and given its repulsive appearance, I ordered a replacement pump ( about $125.) I was a little irritated at the original plumbers' installation. With all the PVC pipe glued into place, it was unserviceable without cutting all the pipes and replumbing. I'm installing 1 1/2" unions at the three ports, and the next time, it will be removable for inspection, etc. Got top and bottom halves scrubbed out and ready for a midnight trip through dishwasher. So, if yours used to work, either the switch is falsely telling the pump to keep going (switch replacement kits are available), the pump is not moving the water (as in my case), or the pump is trying really hard and maybe a check valve isn't opening to let water out.

My drainosaur 506065 pump chugs on and off for hours and does not empty sink. I pulled the plug. I think it's clogged with debris. Can I clean filter and discharge line myself? How?

Before cutting pipes apart...remove the pump and check the intake part of the pump...
Often the intake holes will plug with debris and all you have to do is clean that....

Also make sure that the check valve is closing... often that will get debris in it an allow the water to just run back into the pump...

Won't shut off

the auto shutoff has failed, either because its dirty and needs to be cleaned or it may actually be faulty. Clean or replace the auto shutoff mechanism.

Sump pump

The big cylindrical thing at the end of the wire hanging is the switch. I believe it is a mercury switch. Try hitting this a little and see if it stops. Sometimes they get stuck. If this doesn't help, then replace that piece. Hope this helps.
