Hi,
Either the float has gone bad or the float is stuck...
give it a kick or a slap and see if that dislodges the float...
If the pump continues to run, open it up and make sure the float has dropped...if it has then the float will need to be replaced...

Where is the fuel pump shut off switch located in a 2000 pontiac sunfire


GM doesn't use a fuel pump shut off switch, the safety system works like this, fuel pump is turned off if the engine oil pressure goes to zero with the key in the run position. Ford uses a shut off switch that is activated by an impact exceeding 3 G's (3X the force of gravity), it is called the fuel pump shut off inertia switch.

I have a 99 ford expedition and my fuel pump stop pumping Trying to find the fuel pump fuse do not have owners manuel Where is the fuel pump fuse


Here is the manual
FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been activated. The "Fuel Reset" indicator light will illuminate in the instrument cluster. The shut-off switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt. 1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position. 2. Check the fuel system for leaks. 3. If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the fuel pump shut-off switch by pushing in the reset button. 4. Turn the ignition to the ON position. Pause for a few seconds and return the key to the OFF position. 5. Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system.
The fuel pump shut-off switch is located in the passenger's foot well, behind the kick panel.

My ejector pump will ot shut off...it is empty what should I do?


The first thing I would do to protect the pump is to shut off breaker or unplug the pump.I'm sure you have already done this but most pumps will not run for extended periods of time without damage to the pump. I would make sure that the float is not rubbing on pit sides or has anything stoping it from shutting pump off. If you have a seperate mercury switch float then I would unplug it from pump and see if that will shut your pump off.
If you take the mercury switch out of the circuit and the pump continues to run then you need a new pump. Thank you.

I check all relay and don't receive direct electricity to the fuel pump and no start the car


You will never have direct electricity to fuel pump only when running then once you shut off ignition that shuts engine off fuel pump to automatically shuts off.I would change the fuel pump sit in car turn key Th start position do not crank engine if you do not hear a grrr,,,grunt sound i would say fuel pump not functioning therefore fuel pump malfunction replace.

RESETTING THE FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH
After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been activated. The shut-off switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt.

If your vehicle is a sedan, the fuel pump shut-off switch is located on the right side of the trunk behind the trunk liner.

Hot tub pump stops and control panel says there is a flo problem


Yes a pump does have a thermal cut out. When the motor gets too hot the thermal cut out will activate and the pump won't restart until the motor has cooled.


If you were an electrician, or highly confident/competent with electrics, you could test the motor with a volt meter. Run the spa and as soon as the pump stops running, check the voltage at the pump. If there is voltage at the pump, then the thermal cut out on the motor has activated. Do not try checking this yourself if you're not competent to do so.

You could also do the same test at the spa pack if it's easier to do so, just locate the output to the pump.

What spa and which spa pack have you got?

Cheers,
Ian.
