Default Floor live well wont turn off

My live well constantly runs. I noticed the light wouldnt turn off and then i could hear pump running. I disconnected the switch at the console and breaker but stays on. I had to unplug it by the pump, it doesnt make sense to me. Does the overflow at top of well connect to that pump also and its possibly getting juice there?

Overflow is a float switch and may be stuck.

Like gundog said. There are 2 ways the pump turns on, manually at the panel and automatically by the float switch at the top of the tank. Sounds like the float is stuck up in the on position.

Connect the hot wires from the panel switch and float switch to the pump's brown wire.

Any float switch should work.

The float switch is live when the panel switch is off. Panel switch is to empty it. You also need to control the flow in with valve. See this owner's manual.
