tecma silence plus problem

My tecma does not fill the bowl when I push the button to do so. Clicks and then very small flow. Not normal flow. Thetford says solenoid may be bad. Any easy way to check? Thanks.

they would no better than me, but it sounds like an inlet screen may be dirty. I wonder if there is a screen on the inlet to that solenoid?

Doesn't look like it. Connection appears to be just a regular hose screw on but I will make sure there is no screen washer inside hook up.

Checked for screen. None on the hose nor the solenoid water hookup point. Took off solenoid and did not appear to be clogged either. Still does not allow water in the bowl after I reattached. Thanks.

We have the same toilet, I believe, in our Country Coach. There is a small cupboard above the toilet where I keep bathroom supplies. The cupboard wall leaves a small space about 5" wide between the cupboard wall and the coach wall. Inside there is a small dial that adjusts how much water the toilet adds to itself with each flush. Does your toilet have anything like that? I've attached a scanned copy of the second page of the manual that someone from IRV2 sent me! PM me if you can't read it and I can email the whole thing to you.

I do have the fill level adjustment dial on the inside of the bathroom cabinet but that does no good either.

Turns out it was the solenoid valve and works now. Thanks for all responses.

I have no water and a flashing red light. Manual says flashing red light means program mode. Now What do I do?
