Half Bath Toilet flush works intermittently

We have a 14 Bus and the half bath flush handle is on the fritz. I've checked the wires and everything is tight. Wonder if the switch is simply going bad. Sometimes it will flush on the first try and other times, it may take 6-10 tries. Pulling it up to fill the tank works every time so that is what makes me think its the switch. Anyone dealt with this?

Yeah. I had the same problem. It's been a while, but as I remember it the handle linkage and switch position allow just too much play in the system. This causes a "sometimes" condition where the switch activates sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. I saw a related old post on another forum where a guy replaced all the system with new parts and before long had the same problem start again. I took the system apart and with some generous use of JB Weld epoxy glue I was able to reduce the play in the system. Although I did the work, I really didn't have too much confidence that I'd solved my problem permanently so I bought a toggle switch (momentary on-off-momentary on) (a slide switch from an old Class C) with the intent that I'd convert the toilet to a fully electrical system when it failed again. The toilet's design is a fully electrical operation with the handle used only to activate the switch. As it happened, my fix with the glue worked, but I'm still carrying the switch around... Just in case.
