Presumably, the float has not become full of water? If not, the internal switch probably has had it. I'm no expert, so I have no idea if you can just replace the switch without being a small engine-type mechanic. I doubt I'd be able to. I think it's time for a new pump...

More details please. Type/make of pump. Type of switch, age, digital pic, etc. Hard to say anything other than replace the pump without more information.
