Tecma toilet

Well...she...who could break an anvil with a rubber mallet...lol...has dropped some tweezers into the rear toilet. This style has a motor/macerator. They got flushed into the motor/macerator and are lodged in the system.
Will call the factory soon but was wondering if anyone has direct experience unclogging this unit.
Thanks

Ouch. Sounds like something I would do. Always keep the toilet lid closed? Hindsight is 20/20, huh?

No experience but it is only held down by two bolts or screws and should be easy to get to the back.

I must have married her sister......

Similar situation happened to me this summer with identical toilet and I successfully unclogged it.

Turned off the water and relieved any pressure in the system The bowl is held in place with a screw on each side of the base. Once removed, I gently pulled the bowl forward and loosened the collar and disconnected the flush hose from the 1.5 inch drain pipe at the rear and did the same with the water inlet hose, and disconnected the 12 volt connect. Carted the thing to the kitchen sink to empty the water from the bowl and to access the pump. With the bowl upside down, I had a clear view if the pump and disconnected the waste hose from it and "voila" had the foreign object in sight. Reassembly was the exact reverse except I turned the water back on and cycled the flush mechanism a few times to check for leaks before screwing back to the floor.

Not a fun job but a relatively easy one. Good luck
