I found a replacement switch which is placed in series with the pump power plug. However when I removed the original switch and plunged the new switch I discovered that the pump motor spins but it does not pump. I installed a new pump.

Thanks!

Pump won't shut-ff


Hi Ron...
Check your float switch....sometimes they can get stuck to cause this problem of not shutting down after draining the orginal water.
Take the float switch and move it up and down...this may help to clear the stuck switch inside of the float

Sump pump doesn't shut off


The floats could be binding on the pump or may have developed leaks so they don't float. Another possibility is that the switch mechanism is defective

I have a flotec model 1m03w fp053200a-o8 1.5 hp sump pump. It run all the time now, the only way it shuts off is if its unplugged. Do I need to replace it, or can it be repaired? Thanks for your time


If you have the pump pictured, there is a float switch in the big round thing that floats. When this float drops, the switch should open and pump should shut off.
Make sure that the pump plug is plugged into the piggyback type float plug.

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.

I have a waterace R4v 1/2 hp, the float goes out every couple of months, the replacement floats are very expensive.help!


Are you getting the correct rated current float. You might be getting a lower current float. Is is easy to find the current 1 hp is 745 watts, the formula is power = voltage x current so current = power/voltage Example 1/2 hp = 372.5 watts if your pump is working with 120 VAC.

So Current=372.5/120=3.1 Your current is 3.1 amps. I suggest you get a float rated for 10 amps. If this is your case with 1/2 hp and 120 VAC. Hope this helps

New water ace sump pump will run but willnot shut off


The higher you pump the water, the stronger your pump needs to be, or the skinnier your hose needs to be. A lower discharge point and / or a smaller diameter hose might help immensely.
