QWhen the flush button on my Thetford C-200 toilet is pressed there’s a small amount of water and then the control fuse inside the bowl housing blows. There are no water leaks and the button switch is in good order. A fellow boater said it was the solenoid valve. How do I get at it?
This is where YouTube can be a big help. Go to thetford-europe.com/ download-product/c200/ for a list of all the parts, then click on the white arrowhead in the red box for a video relating to changing that part. It is called ‘Electric Valve’.
You will need to gain access to the back of the toilet, possibly by removing the fixings and moving it. Carefully check in case wires have chafed or liquid has got into the electrics causing a short circuit.
