Question about Flotec FP0S2400A-03 1/3 HP 2,500 GPH Automatic Submersible Sump Pump
The float is usually the culprit if it is not turning on. I f you have a floating ball type float switch try lifting it up and shaking it to see if pump starts running. These micro switches stick after several years use. If you have a round canister on the side it is a pressure activated switch that also has a micro switch inside that completes the circut when the pressure on the diafram is enough to click the switch. I f it has a float on a rod it has a switch at the top of the pump that shuts it off when at low level, and turns it on at high water level. Most pumps have a two part cord. The pump plugs into the float control switch, so it does not get power till the float switch clicks on. If you have a two part plug, then separate them and plug the cord in that leads directly to the pump body. This will tell you if the pump is working. If it is then replace the float switch assembly. Also there is either a few screws holding the pump screen on to the pump on the underside. Some simply snap fit to the pump body. Often I will find stones, wood chips string etc. in the pump impeller. That is what pumps the water by squeezing it into the small 1 1/4 output orifice. That about covers it. Please post to fixya.com if it does, so I get the credit for the solve. Let me know if you do need more advice. Good Luck!!!
