Vacu Flush not working

Postby buster53 » April 13th, 2018, 1:00 pm

OK, my new to me 356 has one head not working. Worked during survey and at least once/twice after.
Now it's not doing anything.
Suggestions guys? Could this be electrical or more of a clog situation.
This is our first boat with Vacu Flush, so I'm a complete newbie on this one. No stranger to heads as I've done rebuild kits on several heads in the past, both manual and electric.

Have checked the on off switch mounted by it in the on the side of the counter by the sink?Its probably labelled sleep. If that is on check the breaker panel to make sure you don't have that turned off.

When we were on the boat last Friday, it wasn't working. We came back today and it's working just fine. It's a miracle!

Between the head and the vac pump itself should be a white tank that looks a bit like a boat fender on its side....on the end of that tank is a vac switch under a cover,( you will see the wires), that controls the pump cycles....sometimes those switches stick a bit ...something to keep in mind.....good luck man..... :beergood:
