SOURCE: Flotec Sump Pump Tethered Float - Float seems faulty. Easy fix?

I have the same problem. It's not the float but the switch. My float goes up but not with enough pressure to flick the switch. I am trying to find a fix for this now.

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.

Pump will not stop runningmjn


This seems like a switch problem resulting in dry cycling. Can you turn on/off the pump by lifting the float switch? Is your switch attached or plugged in to your pump? I believe your on your model it is hard-wired. If so, bring it back to the retailer/wholesaler from whom you bought it.

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 Float switch did not automatically shut off,enginburn out


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.

Switching off too soon.


you don't need to replace the switch just raise the upper stop up higher so the float can go higher before turning the pump on, it should have a rubber gromet on it slide it up the rail

Flotec Sump Pump Tethered Float - Float seems faulty. Easy fix?


it sounds like it could be a bad float switch but most of the time the water isn't high enough for the pump to turn on. it takes alot of water to turn on a tethered float. the other pumps they sell at lowes with a real float (like the one in the toilet) are adjustable and also replicable. .
