Pump won't shut-ff


Hi Ron...
Check your float switch....sometimes they can get stuck to cause this problem of not shutting down after draining the orginal water.
Take the float switch and move it up and down...this may help to clear the stuck switch inside of the float

Kubota M 5030 2.8 6 cyl. Diesel in oil sump. Why?


Diesel gets in the sump from an seal leaking in the fuel pump through to the drive gear and out into the sump. If it has an inline pump( one where the injector lines are in a row at the top of the pump) the fuel will be leaking past the plunger elements and into the pump sump which then drains back tot he engine sump. IF it is slight but consistent sometimes injectors will dribble when shut down and the fuel will by pass the piston rings into the sump. Talk with a diesel pump and injector repair specialist for any faults particular to the Kubota fuel system

I have a flotec E100ELT sump pump in my basement. It doesn't turn on/off by the electronic switch anymore and its only 6 months old. I can plug it straight into the outlet and it runs great. But it...


I have the same problem with my E100ELT. This occurs approx. every 3-6 months due to soot collecting on the sensors. I simply remove the sensor (unclip) and clean. However, the pump just failed which is why I'm reading your comment. This is my 8th and best pump in 11 years. All others fail much earlier.

Backup never came on


Check that the battery is fully charged, keep a trickle charger on it so you don't have to worry. More importantly, test the backup pump float to make sure it doesn't bind on the other things (primary float, piping) in the sump crock. With the primary pump turned off, fill the crock and see if the float rises freely.

I have a Zoeller Water Ridd'r II Model 48 Sump pump. The pump comes on okay, but will nit shutoff. The float is not impededd, it's just laying on the bottom of the sump. Is this a defective...


If I undrestand your description, when the resevoir is empty, the float lays on the bottom of the resevoir but, the pump doesn't shut off, after water is pumped out? You have to look at this as opposite of a toilet tank filling with water. In a toilet, the water rises and the foat turn the water flow off. In a sump the water will rise, and the float will turnthe pump on until the resevoir is empty, then it will open the system and turn off the pump. If the float doesn't rise, the resevoir will overflow and the pump won't come on at all. If the float rises and the pump comes on but, the float does "not" drop, the pump will continue to run after the resevoir is empty.

This is Zoellers link. I don't see your pump but they do have a support link. If the float rises and falls with the height of the water, turns pump on, then drops "all the way" and pump doesn't turn off, the switch is bad not the float. Make sure there is nothing in the way of the float dropping to it's full down position.

I have a flotec model 1m03w fp053200a-o8 1.5 hp sump pump. It run all the time now, the only way it shuts off is if its unplugged. Do I need to replace it, or can it be repaired? Thanks for your time


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.

Water backs up in the floor drain during heavy downpour even thou


the sump pump shold not be run into the sanitary sewer, but if your floor drain is hooked to a sump pump pit and it doesn';t pump the water before it gets to the drain tile it could come up in the drain,, to solve the problem get a pump that the float is lower in the pit,, suggestion zoeller cast iron submersable pump cost about 100 less the install price, great low profile pump, it keeps less waterin the sump pump pit so there is less mosture
