There really is no maintenance for a Zoeller submersible pump. When these fail it is typically the switch or the motor itself. If it is a smaller unit 1/2HP to 10HP I consider the pump trash if it is the motor that does fail. Yes they may be rebuilt but when compared to the cost of a replacement it can be hard to justify, especially when a new unit will give you a warranty.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Have a Zoeller 710 backup sump pump and keeps blowing fuse, whats the problem?


Make sure the impeller is as clean and clear as possible, anything clogging it and restricting its rotation will cause it to blow a fuse. If tis not turning easily and feely most likely the bearing is starting ti seize up.

How much wattage is needed to run z57 zoeller pump


It probably draws about 6 amps so the power is 720 watts. Put it on a separate 15 Amp fused line so it doesn't put electrical noise into other items such a TV or radio for best results.

Zoeller Pump M57


The only "easy fix" may be a stuck float switch. First make sure the outlet where the pump is plugged in works. Plug something into the outlet such as a work light to confirm the outlet is live. The float switch may be stuck in the OFF position. Giggle the float arm up and down several times to see if the pump comes on.> You can spry wd40 into the switch where the arm enters. If this does not work, the pump probably needs servicing.

My Zoeller M57 pump has stopped working. It won't even turn on...is 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.

Fixed! Zoeller M53 won't turn on. Will turn on with a slight tap.


I had the same problem of pump not turning on unless I tapped the pipe to create a vibration. I took the float off and cleaned the grime / buildup. The buildup changed the buoyancy of the float (made it heavier) such that it did not float high enough to trigger the switch. Once cleaned, the float floats much higher above the water line and triggers the switch.
