There are 2 schools of thought regarding maintenance: you can carry out preventive maintenance (calendar based or hours run)... or, on condition maintenance... i.e repair it when it breaks down. What, is the consequence of a failure... if it's 'bad' replace it.... if not, wait until it fails. Hope this makes sense.

I have a 12 volt emergency sump pump system SD-BSP. Sensor float failure.

If it is anything like mine the sensor is on a cord So what I do
is get some plastic wire ties and tie the cord part lower on the pump
so the float part does not have to move so far. cheap fix
oh BTW if you cannot secure it to the pump then maybe you have some vertical part you can secure it to .

Fixing a Zoeller M53 Sump Pump that won't turn on. Turns on by tapping or...

Just wanted to share my fix story. A couple of years ago I had a problem with my zoeller sump pump to turning on but it would if I ever so lightly tapped it or the discharge pipe. Naturally I suspected the switch and replaced it with the same results. I ended up zip tying a piece of foam to the float and bingo! This worked great for awhile until the foam loosened and got stuck. So back to the drawing board. I noticed on a parts list that zoeller recommends changing the float arm when replacing the switch. Put in a new float arm and it works great! No foam needed. I never thought to replace it in the first place because the old one moved fine but when compared to the new arm the new one is much smoother. I was able to remove the old arm with channel lock pliers and the new piece is press fit with some loctite #609 that came with it. Hope this helps!

My Zoeller M57 pump has stopped working. It won't even turn there a reset switch or some other easy fix for this?

These Zoeller pumps are very good quality> I suspect that the float switch is not working, which is why the pump is not turning on.You may try giggling the float arm that is attached to the switch. You can also try spraying some WD 40 into the switch where the arm enters. Zoeller does have replacement parts for their pumps. Review their website for your pump parts.

All of sudden the sump pump doesn't kick on automatically. I can operate it manually and it works fine.

Same here - I believe I have the same model as you. Not sure how old mine is, since I just moved in.

You may need to replace the switch. I've read that the switch can fail after as little as 2 years on similar models/makes. I'm waiting to hear back from Flotec on the cost of the switch myself.
