Sump Pump question
The on/off switch on my two year old Zoeller sump pump does not seem to work properly.
The pump clicks on when the water level rises, but often the pump will stop when the water declines far enough but it will not click off. Then the pump will run on/off, on/off a few times until something prompts the pump to click off. It seems like the float pulls the little arm down hard enough to make the pump stop, but not hard enough to make the pump click off. It is like a light switch that is stuck in the middle. I can make the pump click off if I just push on the little arm. It seems like the switch is fine but that the float does not pull down hard enough on the arm to make the pump click off.
Is this a known issue with Zoeller? Is there a way I can fix the pump so that the float pulls the arm a little harder.
