O-ring seals are nitrile. The motor is thermally protected. This instruction sheet covers the standard models in this pump series. This form is applicable to other models in this series not listed by catalog number in the replacement parts list section of this pamphlet.

DO NOT USE TO PUMP FLAMMABLE OR EXPLOSIVE FLUIDS SUCH AS GASOLINE, FUEL OIL, KEROSENE, ETC. DO NOT USE IN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES. PUMP SHOULD ONLY BE USED WITH LIQUIDS COMPATIBLE WITH PUMP COMPONENT MATERIALS. DO NOT HANDLE PUMP WITH WET HANDS OR WHEN STANDING ON A WET OR DAMP SURFACE, OR IN WATER.

KEY:OPEN=Open Motor—FC=Fan Cooled NOTE: Performance Data Shown In Table Above Is For 115 Volt 60 Hertz Operation ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS NOTE: Motor configuration may vary from model to model. OPERATION The pump is supplied completely preassembled and pretested from the factory. Make sure the wing nuts are tight before operating the pump. Use a thread sealer on all pipe connections and hand tighten only. The pump is not self priming. It must be operated with the volute intake below the liquid level. This pump is not submersible. Operate the pump only in the in-line mode. DO NOT put the unit in liquid. Pump should be located in a well ventilated area and away from where accidental water spillage would cause wetting of the pump. The weight of the pump must be supported adequately. DO NOT support the pump by the intake and discharge connections alone. Do not allow the pump to run dry (without liquid). Heat build up caused by friction will damage the pump parts when dry. Do not attempt to restrict the intake side of these pumps. Restricting the intake may cause damage to the pump head. If you require reduced flow rates, then place a valve on the discharge side of the pump or if flexible vinyl tubing is used, a clamp can be used on the tubing to restrict the flow. If the unit is going to be idle for a period of time, follow the cleaning instructions outlined in the next section. Do not let the unit freeze in the wintertime. This may cause cracking or distortion that may destroy the unit. SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE UNIT IS DISCONNECTED FROM THE POWER SOURCE BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO SERVICE OR REMOVE ANY COMPONENT. The motor’s sleeve bearings should be lubricated every six months with two to three drops of S.A.E. 20 weight non-detergent oil. The oil holes are located on top at each end of the motor. All wetted parts can be serviced by removing the (4) wing nuts (item 11) which hold the volute to the housing. The pump head components can easily be replaced in the field if necessary. Lightly clean any corrosion or debris which may clog the impeller. If pump is tripping circuit breakers, GFCI, or not operating properly after cleaning, return to Little Giant or its authorized service center. DO NOT attempt repairs yourself. Be certain power cord is in good condition and contains no nicks or cuts. PARTS LIST ITEM NO. MFR’S PART NO. 1 977314 1 977313 2 MODEL & CATALOG NO.

Do not connect to voltage other than that shown. If pump is supplied with a 3-prong electrical plug, the third prong is to ground the pump to prevent possible electrical shock hazard. DO NOT REMOVE the third prong from the plug. A separate branch circuit is recommended. Do not use an extension cord. Do not cut plug from the cord. If the plug is cut or the cord is shortened, then this action will void the warranty. If the cord is equipped with stripped lead wires, such as on 230v models, be sure that the lead wires are connected to a power source correctly. The green/yellow wire is the ground, the other two are live. • 9 924007 O-RING 1 • • 10 901418 MACHINE SCREW, #8-32 X 1½" 4 • • 11 920003 WING NUT, #8-32 4 • • 12 901424 MACHINE SCREW, #8-32 X ½" 4 • • 13 921059 LOCK WASHER, #8 4 • • Parts list applies to products shown.
