Sump Pump Help


I have a sump pump and I don't see a way of setting the low level or high level for that matter but the pump works and then it makes a sucking noise(out of water) at the end always and I would like to somehow raise the level so that the pump stops prior to running out of water.
How can I change the low level so that the pump does not suck air up and make a big noise.
Thanks.

Is the float stationary or strapped to it's side?

Don't see anything that moves up or down with the water so it must be stationary. Must have a switch somewhere but can't find it.

Must have a pressure switch built-in, if so you can not adjust it.
