This summer I purchased a home that has a bathroom in the basement. It uses the Ridgid #85967 sep -500 1/2 hp residential sewage pump. In October this pump failed, thus I purchased the same pump and had it installed. Everything was working correctly until tonight. The shower in the basement was being used, and from what I understand they heard the pump eject the water out to the septic field....but now it won't shutoff...it just keeps humming. It didn't overflow (which is GOOD!), it just won't shutoff and continues to hum. I unplugged it for 15 minutes to no avail, I disconnected the float section and just plugged the pump in...and it still hums. What is it's problem? It's basically doing the same thing the last one is doing. I was told the impellar in the old one wasn't turning. This pump being 3 months old shouldn't be dead yet? Should it? We didn't have any power surge, the power didn't go off, and the home at 200 amp service so there should be plenty. What could cause it? ...and how to remedy it? I shouldn't have to replace the pump every 3 months should I?
No announcement yet.
