Problem with electric toilet flush

Our domestic 8100 toilet stopped working mid flush. The tank says it is at 19% so it's not full. No water coming in or going out. Just completely not working when the switch is pushed. Any ideas?

Good morning,

I had the same symptoms a few months ago. Check for a blown fuse. I have a 2016 30' Flying Cloud with that toilet. I believe it was fuse location nine and the red light only shows up when you push the flush button. Just open you converter box and watch the dc fuses block when trying to flush.

Regards,

J

That's seems to be it. Thank you! On our way to buy some new fuses. Hopefully whatever made the fuse go out will resolve with a new fuse too.

Toilet Flush

I've got a 2015 Flying Cloud Bunk and have the same problem. Every time there was matter to be flushed, the fuse would blow. The dealers fix was a bigger fuse, but in talking with a factory tech, that is neither safe, nor the correct repair. I have another appointment with the dealer and hope this can be resolved.

We will have to add it to our list of repairs that need to get done before the warranty is up. We replaced the fuse and a few days later, it blew out again. And we replaced it but it definitely seems funny.

Fuses blowing indicates excessive current draw, may also be caused by too much load on the motor, a short, or low battery voltage. Or a combination.

Hmm. The second time the fuse blew was when I was filling an empty toilet. What do you think could have caused it?

So I stand corrected. The dealer researched the information on the toilet and found that the bigger fuse WAS called for. Apparently it left the factory with a 15Amp fuse, and it actually takes a 20Amp. Dealer reports that this is not an uncommon problem, so if you are having problems, check the fuse amperage to make sure it is right.

Yep, same thing over here.

First month in my 2017 FC 26U, same issue, same fix. Left the factory with a 15A and the schematics/labels show it should be 20A. So glad to have the forums to guide and/or confirm my troubleshooting and solutions. Thanks, all!

I had the same problem with my 2016 26U. After checking all electrical possibilities, it seems the solenoid went bad. Called Airstream and they sent out a part, had it repaired and now works great. Also FYI, there is a screen in the solenoid that can become plugged with debris. That can also cause the water not to flow when the button is pushed. The solenoid is located under the bathroom counter and accessible through a plate located in the cabinet.
