Hi. Is there water coming out of the discharge pipe. If not is there water in the sump up to the level of float switch activation. If no to the first and yes to the second your problem is the pump is not priming and of course then the float switch is activating the pump. This can be caused by a leak in the suction pipe, a faulty valve or a valve with something caught in it, or a hole in the diaphragm. ( in order of probability) As to the switches. If you put it on manual it will run regardless until you switch it off manual. On auto the float switch controls on and off.
