Q: is this the replacement switch for a m53 vertical float?
Zoeller Replacement Mechanical Switch for M53 & M98

by Ken from Illinois on May 22, 2013

Q: I have a M53-D Zoeller pump that is about 10yrs old.I was told by my home builder that it was rated to pump vertical up to 10ft.is this true?I have miss placed my owners manual and now the switch is bad so that the pump runs constant till it over heats,is that do to pumping vertical for 10yrs out of my basement for a washer?By the way it has been a great pump and will never own anything but a Zoeller for the rest of my time.Thank you.
by Darrell A from Virginia on April 20, 2013

A: The Zoeller M53 is and has been a great pump for many years! It is designed to handle a maximum of 15 feet of vertical lift. I have heard of this pumps lasting for 10, 15, 20 and even up to 30 years. Chances are that the switch has failed and needs to be replaced, which is a common occurrence. We do offer the Replacement Mechanical Switch for M53 and the Zoeller Complete Cover Assembly & Switch Kit For M53 Sump Pump. Please note however that the switch requires installation by you or a certified plumber/contractor and ALL SALES ARE FINAL - NO RETURNS ALLOWED ON THIS PRODUCT.

Q: I have an M-53 pump with a bad float switch. The current switch is a 4117J. Would the 4705 switch be a suitable replacement or could you suggest another?
by Paul Reinman from Ohio on May 12, 2012

A: Yes, the model 4705 would be a good replacement switch for your pump. However, please keep in mind that if the pump is older, the gasket in the switch housing may also need to be replaced. If that's the case, you might be better off with the Complete Cover Assembly & Switch Kit For M98 & M53 Sump Pumps, model 4724.

Didn't Make A Lot Of Difference
Pump wouldn't start without a little kick on the pipe so I thought I needed a new switch. I ordered the new switch, but it has not made any difference. The only thing that worked was to add flotation to the existing float. Do they get water logged?

A new gasket should really be part of this kit. Switch was easy enough to install

Jeff,
Great question about the float. Depending on the age of the pump, you most likely have mineral buildup on the float/arm. This will make the switch stick.

Installs In Minutes
Take a couple of pictures before you take the old one off so you don't mess up the wiring, un-clip the wires,exchange the switch, put it all back together, take special care of the gasket seal, sealant may be necessary

So Easy To Install A Teenager Can Do It
My M98 sump pump wouldn't shut off. I purchased this switch and had my 13 year old install it. With some guidance he installed the switch and reinstalled the pump in about 30 minutes. The sump pump has been working flawlessly for several months.

Works As Advertised
The switch on my M98 would stick causing the pump to run continuously. I would hit the top of the pump with a pipe so the pump would work correctly. Usually I replace the pump. I saw this switch on this site and decided to try it.

The switch arrived a day early. It took less than 10 minutes to install. The pump works correctly.

As other reviewer's stated, a gasket doesn't come with the switch. Be careful when removing the top of the pump as not to damage the gasket.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price
Cons: Shipping Costs For Small Item

Very Easy Cheap Fix
I have a very old pump which stop working. I put in the new switch which is cheaper then a new pump. Easy to install took like 5min and now I have a reliable pump again.

No Gasket? Really!!?
The "switch kit" costs about as much as the pump itself. I knew it was just the switch that was the problem, but how can you not even include the gasket that you need to replace with the switch? $70 hardly seems worth it for a gasket. A disposable pump from a big box store seems more cost effective than the "quality" brand that needs a replacement switch every couple years.

Fred,
We do apologize for the confusion, however we do not mention anything in the product description for the Zoeller 004705 replacement that indicates that the gasket is included. The product page has been updated to offer the gasket as an accessory if needed. That said, if you still need the gasket, please let me know and I'll be happy to mail one out to you, no charge, due to this issue.
Sincerely,
Jim Owiecki

I Won't Buy Zoeller
I bought a replacement switch and its' assembly to replace the bad switch on my Zoeller pump. This three year old pump came with the house that I had bought. After about a year of living at my house I discovered water in my basement. It was due to the switch sticking. One tap and it turned on. If water comes in slowly the switch won't engage. It's a bad design. I quickly grew tired of babysitting this pump, so I replaced it with a better Liberty 257. I don't forsee having the same... more
Cons: Unreliable
