Can any one tell me the wiring connections from the float switch to a mini condensate pump via an RJ45 connector? (wiring diag with RJ45 pinouts would be handy)
The pump is a gotec piccolo but other pumps use the same connector

It is an lg but the pump is not part of the air con it is an add on to pump the condensate uphill. The pump has a float module to control it I think the float module is faulty. It is swiss there are no agents in australia there is an agent in New zealand but I can not get any info from them so far It is beginning to look like I will have to get different brand instead of just replacing the float module.

No the float module seems to be faulty. When you upend the module the pump starts but stops again. if it is reinstalled and water poured in, the pump starts then stops a few seconds later.So either the float is faulty or the pump electronics cause the pump to cut out. As I can not get the circuit I think I will give up and get a replacement.

I named it in the original question. It is a gotec Piccolo.
The brand is gotec (Swedish) Piccolo is the size I think.
You can get a picture of it on the internet.
If you google gotec piccolo and open the galco page (NZ) you will see a picture of it
I have had emails with them but got nowhere.

I realize I can do what every body does this day and age just replace it with an other brand (who cares the customer pays) but as these things are a few hundred dollars I thought I would see if it was repairable

I dont know what is irritating you But the drain is temporary until I buy an other brand pump or fix the old one. The job is a sort of love job for a friend of a friend that is why I was trying to do it on the cheap.
