The switch goes bad and that happens sometimes...
I guess you could change the switch but for the price of a new one it isn't worth my time... I junk em and throw a new one in...

I assume the unit is overflowing, because the pump is not running. Check th hose connection and be sure the line bringing the water into the pump is inserted in the opening. Can you hear the motor run? You can remove the top, and be sure the float switch is working and that the pump inlet is not clogged with debris. Sometimes you'll get mold and dirt mixed with water clogging the inlet. If the motor doesn't run, and the switch works, then it probably isn't worth fixing as you can buy these from 35.00--50.00

SOURCE: VCMA-15 Have a catch pan
You should have it wired in series with the wire on the 'R' terminal of the control board to the thermostat. Usually the red wire. This will shut down the complete system if the pump fails. The pan switch should be wired this way also, so they can both be in series with each other.

The float switch went bad... probably because of the water...you could replace it, but the parts are hard to get and with the time involved it will be easier and cheaper to replace it...

Tips for a great answer:
Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
Replace the check valve that is part if the discharge hose barb. When it fails the water trapped in the vertical section of the tube comes back into the tank and cycles the float on again causing what you describe. The best way to confirm this would be to watch the water level as soon as the pump shuts off and see if it climbs without any other source of water coming into it. If it is not rising then the issue is with the float itself and is not worth fixing; replace the unit in that case.
