Float Switch Replacement Parts Two Options
The Top Float And Switch Assembly Replacement Kit Part 60017-001 For CDU, SPF and SSPF Models
Part 60017-001 is identified as the Top Float and Switch Replacment Kit. It contains a switch, and the attached power cord which fits between the pump housing and float head.
Wayne recommends the switch be replaced every 2 - 4 years depending on how frequently the pump runs. No sump pump switch lasts forever; therefore it is a great idea to have an extra one on hand so when the switch fails during a heavy rainstorm you are prepared.
The Switch Only Replacement Part 56395 For CDU, SPF and SSPF Models
Part number 56395 replaces the switch only. This takes care of the part Wayne Water Systems recommends be replaced every 2 - 4 years.
3 Switch Replacement Options Comparison
3 Switch Replacement Buying Options Exist. We review the options providing advantages and disadvantages. The conclusion presents the best option and why it is the best option.
Here Are The 3 Options Comparison
Buy Only The Switch and Gasket
PART NUMBER: 56395
For Models CDU, SPT and SSPF
ADVANTAGE: Cost is 75% less than buying the entire Top Cap Assembly
DISADVANTAGE: Installation is not as easy since the switch wires will need to be unattached and the new wires attached
CONCLUSION: Buying Part Number 56395 for $20 at the time of this writing makes sense if you are confident of your DIY pluming skills.
Buy An Electronic Controller Triggered By Motionless Probes
PART NUMBER: HC6000 & HC8000 For Any Model
ADVANTAGE: 1) This option eliminates the need to remove the sump pump from the pit when replacing the switch. 2) The HC6000 and HC8000 switch controller will last many years because it uses a controller receiving signals from probes affected by water pressure. The HC series controller and probes have no moving parts; do not required removal of the pump from the pit to replace the sensors which replace the need for a float and the reliance on the float to complete the cycle so the switch activates the pump. 3) The HC6000 and HC8000 are easy to install. Just tie the Wayne float switch to the 'ON' position. Then install the HC probes to the discharge pipe; plug the HC switch into the wall socket; then plug the Wayne motor cord into the HC piggyback switch. Learn more about the HC6000 and HC8000 Electronic Sump Pump Switches.
DISADVANTAGE: 1) This switch is a new concept, but we installed it in 2011. It is still operating perfectly. We highly recommend it. 2) Costs more than just buying the 56395 replacement switch. 3) The HC6000 and HC8000 are easy to install. Just tie the Wayne float switch to the 'ON' position. Then install the HC probes to the discharge pipe; plug the HC switch into the wall socket; then plug the Wayne motor cord into the HC piggyback switch. Learn more about the HC6000 and HC8000 Electronic Sump Pump Switches.
CONCLUSION: Buying 60017-001 makes sense if you are unsure if you can do the replacement yourself.
Our recommendation is based on your skill, confidence level and time availability.
If you are used to performiing mechanical jobs and like tinkering, we suggest you purchase Part-Number 56395 which includes a new replacement switch and gasket.
If you do not feel mechanical, we recommend you spend the extra money and buy Part-Number 60017-001 which includes the float top case cap, the switch already installed within the case cap, the gasket, attached cord and switch guard and arm assembly.
If you are ready to try new technology, are tired of removing the pump from the pit to replace the switch, and have a low level of mechanical confidence, we recommend the HC6000 or HC8000. Read more about the Electronic Switch HC6000 and HC8000.
16 Installation Steps For Installing Part Number 60017-001 Float Switch Top (Installation is Easy)

4. Remove the float switch top unscrewing the top screws with a screw driver.
5. Move the float switch top from the pump body.

7. When no more wires are connected take the float top and place it beside the pump.
8. Take the new float top and place it over the pump, connecting the green wire first to the point marked GRD. Push the green connector all the way down.
