A couple of days ago I discovered my backup sump pump running continuously. The water sensor on my primary pump was dirty and the backup had come on but not shut off. I don't know how long it was running, but it was hot and the battery was down. Ridgid sent me a new switch for the pump which I just installed. The pump now turns on and off like it should, but when I put water in the sump pit it isn't pumping it out. It just runs. The primary pump is working fine now. I'm thinking the continuous running burned up the back up pump. Is that right or is there something else I might be missing?? Thanks
