Flo Jet Macerator Keep Running

New to me boat, 32 Freedom 1985. The flo jet is hot now, I don't know how to turn it off. It's been running for two days. I shut off the head sump pump and the other label that just says sump pump and nothing happened. Motor is probably gonna burn out! Need help and thanks.

Turn off cct. breakers one at a time until it quits. If that doesn't do it then look for a fuse in the wiring to the pump.

Re: Flo Jet Macerator Keep Running

If your macerator has been running that long the impeller is probably done , these things burn up in a couple of minutes if they run dry . Better give it a look.

Re: Flo Jet Macerator Keep Running

Is my assumption that it is your water pump and not your macerator that was running a correct one?
