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.

Sump pump doesn't shut off


The floats could be binding on the pump or may have developed leaks so they don't float. Another possibility is that the switch mechanism is defective

Flotec website shows several submersible sump pumps, and pump types:
http://www.flotecpump.com/asp/productapplication.asp?AId=28

Click product, then click on 'parts and literature' to access manual
Here is a Flotec manual:
http://www.flotecpump.com/pdf/FP525%2811-1-06%29.PDF

Manual for this type of sump pump says:
Quote from manual: Automatic float switch is sealed and factory adjusted for
most home sumps. Turn-on water level is 10" - 12" above
pump base. Turn-off water level is 4" - 6".

The manual also says that running the pump when dry will ruin the seals.
This implies that the water level setting is set so the seals will not be damaged

You might be able to dig the sump deeper, but I don't know if that meets your objective.

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.

Please Vote !!

The foot valve (one way valve) is either very dirty and in need of cleaning, or it is defective and should be replaced. Don't wait, you're wasting a heck of a lot of electricity and wearing out the pump much faster than you should.

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
