spindle shaft and thrust washers are titanium. The impeller driven magnet is uncoated ceramagnet A
(barium ferrite) type ceramic. 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. If
the catalog number of your pump is not listed in the replacement parts section, then caution should be exercised when ordering replacement parts. Always give the catalog number of your pump when ordering
replacement parts.
The Little Giant unit you have purchased is of the highest quality workmanship and material. It has
been engineered to give you long and trouble-free service.
The Little Giant pumps are carefully inspected, tested, and packaged to insure safe operation and delivery. When you receive your pump, examine it carefully to determine that there are no broken or damaged parts that may have occurred during shipment. If damage has occurred, make notation and notify
the firm from which you purchased the pump. They will assist you in the replacement or repair, if required.
READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL, OPERATE OR SERVICE THE LITTLE GIANT PUMP, KNOW THE PUMP APPLICATIONS, LIMITATIONS, AND POTENTIAL

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.

Check the pump label for proper voltage required. 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.
