Lots of sump questions lately. Here is mine.
All of a sudden, my pump won't shut off. It drains the pit just fine, but then keeps running. If I lift the float up, it will shut off. Then I put the float back down and the pump kicks on as it should when the water level gets to a certain point, but then it just keeps running after it empties the pit.
Is something wrong with the float or switch? I haven't removed it yet to look at it as I wanted to bounce this off you folks first.
Here are some before/after pics and a 3rd one of me lifting the float with a golf club.
There does seem to be a lot of debris in the pit and I'm wondering if that's at least part of the issue. I will clean that out today too.
One last thing...when I lift the float, it appears to just be dangling there. I thought it was supposed to be attached to the pump somehow. I wonder if this is normal or did a screw come loose or something.
