Unhappy Tecma toilet in Country Coach

We have a 2 button tecma toilet that will not flush. Does not seem to be getting power. Any ideas? Help will be appreciated.

TEcma Toilet

Thanks Don. Apparently not getting power as no lights are on and do not come on when buttons are pushed as when in "sleep mode". Do you know anything about the blackwater "high water" tank switches that may be causing power to be cut off despite blackwater tank only being 20% full?

No they would not cut the power off. The display on the Tecma has a Green LED.. Or a RED led,

The tank sensor changes it from green to red, and, I suspect, prevents flushing. (mine does nto work so it's always green) But it would not cut it off.
Home is where I park it!

Airvine, I don't know what you mean when you say no power. Are you saying the switch doesn't light up, water does not come into the bowl or the toilet does not flush or all of the above? There is a connector behind the toilet that provides power and it could have come unplugged. On mine its on the left as you face the commode, to heavy gauge wires coming from the wall.
If it wont flush and the lights are on that is another issue. Just in case you have that I experience the following:
I had the same problem with my toilet, same model. It would fill but not flush and the red light (holding tank full) would come on at the switch. My holding tank was empty. I pulled the toilet out of the RV (fun job there) and the pump was plugged up with what looked like a Dryer Sheet. I had to dismantle the pump (8 screws I think) to get it out. Put the thing back together and it works fine.
So, the light on the switch does not ALWAYS indicate a full tank. The pump not working gave me the same signal.

I love this website. It has saved me a lot of money based on other RVers experience, so I always post what I discover.
