You must remove the lid to gain access to the blades. Make sure you unplug the unit first. When reinstalling the lid place a little soap water around the gasket to help with the seal. thanks for using FIXYA. Jeff

SOURCE: Sanipro xr is less than 6 months old been working

Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. Somehow water is draining back into the pump casing, check the flapper on the check valve inside the discharge elbow, it may not be closing properly or may be obstructed allowing waste water to drain back into the pump. Also check the flapper on the flush valve inside the toilet tank (water closet) the flapper may be leaking water into the bowl and from the bowl into the pump casing sitting behind. As far as making a loud noise, there could be a blockage on the drain pipe, blade or impeller. The discharge pipe may be loose, not clamped against the wall and is rattling against the wall when in use.

SOURCE: sanipro xr pumps for 15 mins then wont start up

Definitely there is a problem with the pressure chamber, it may need to be replaced. The pressure chamber is were all the electrical components are sitted and is what turns the unit on and off. You can always order parts throught Saniflo's technical dept. 800-571-8191

SOURCE: i have a sanipro xr its not making the sound it

The pump in the lift chamber has quit working. Check the power to it and if that's not the problem then you will have to get into where the pump is to see if the float is hung up. I know it's a nasty job but someone has to do it.

I have a 2008 Saturn Astra Xr its making a grinding noise what could it be if it's not the brakes or rotors.


It could be worn out constant velocity joints, if it is noisy only at slow speeds, and turning makes it happen too, get them checked asap.

Sanipro xr is less than 6 months old been working fine but has recently become rather noisy. Sometimes goes off in the middle of the night for no reason.

Engine noise


sounds like it could be 2 things. the valve tappets, meaning valves need adjusting and or loose cam chain which may need adjusting.

Noise from gearbox near front sprocket.


Your bike may need the harmonic balancer chain adjusted. Th will notice is noise is very prominent at engine idle and low RPM's. When this chain get lose you will feel the vibration even in the handlebars if it is loose enough.
