The Sanigrinds are a little harder to work on. Most likely the electrical subset is broken this is why water is leaking out of there. You will have to replace the electrical subset, be careful though. If not aligned properly, it will brake again upon installation.

I know nothing about the Saniflo system but I suggest you check in the supplied literature if any routine maintenance is recommended and if so I think it would be wise to do that before looking for further explanations (problems).

I have just had a saniflo installed. When I put the power on it knocks the trip switch on the box straight off.

That means that somehow water got inside the pressure chamber which is where all the electrical components are, if it senses water it will trip the GFI and the unit will shut off completely. You may have to replace the whole pressure chamber since water may have corroded the electrical components.

The macerator wont turn off after toilet flushed - have taken it apart & cant see any obvious problem - what next ?

try cleaning with an acid descaler. if that doesnt work then its time to replace the pressure switch (micro-switch). These often give up well before the unit has reached its last legs.

Sanigrind pump don"t always start on all fushes

certainly indicates that the unit is not holding water (hence not starting on every flush). as you are seeing water in the shower - this is obviously where it is going. It may be that the internal flap (non return valve) is stuck open or damaged. If damaged you can put a new non return valve in your 40mm pipe run where the shower pipe enters the saniflo - about a tenner from most suppliers.

The saniflo system uses 2 stages stage one works sorta like a garbage disposal it breakes up waste, stage two is a high flo pump. one fo these has gone bad meaning the motor has burned up and shorted the sparking in the breaker pannel you refered to. As far as I know theese systems are self contained so you will have to have the unit repaced here is a link to the website so you can find a dealer or installer near you
Hope this helps.
