Little giant WRSC-6 won't shut off
The vent should definitely be connected to a vent pipe. (Does waste water rise in vent pipe, or can it outgas to indoors? If the latter, maybe it would work not connected.) Mine just quit after 17 years; it would come on and not shut off. I figure it was either the switch assembly stuck on, a blocked output, or a failed pump. I pulled it all apart and found that an O-ring in the pump housing was hanging out of the seam. Owners manual warns against taking apart anything in the pump housing, and given its repulsive appearance, I ordered a replacement pump ( about $125.) I was a little irritated at the original plumbers' installation. With all the PVC pipe glued into place, it was unserviceable without cutting all the pipes and replumbing. I'm installing 1 1/2" unions at the three ports, and the next time, it will be removable for inspection, etc. Got top and bottom halves scrubbed out and ready for a midnight trip through dishwasher. So, if yours used to work, either the switch is falsely telling the pump to keep going (switch replacement kits are available), the pump is not moving the water (as in my case), or the pump is trying really hard and maybe a check valve isn't opening to let water out.
