I had the same issue before. Pump not shutting off. I spoke to tech support and adviced that there is a float switch (pressure chamber) inside the pump casing which water pressure activates the pump on and off. After dissassembling the unit i found that the black rubber piece at the bottom of the float switch was warped/deteriorated. After replacing it, it started working fine. It's been 3 years now and have no problems at all.

Check out installation and if you have a manual check out dismantling it to check it out. If not go to this link for information. You have a blockage that is not allowing it to shut off pump. This is a installation guide that has some troubleshooting tip's.

At this point, opening the access cover is the last thing you do if it is below the water level in the pipes. Your system has a partial blockage in the pipes between the pump and external septic tanks or sewage dump site, that is the reason why when you use the plunger , half of the amount of waste water comes up to the sink and bathtub. You to open up your pipelines to remove blockage , probably tree roots in the pipes.

I've had a saniplus toilet system (with toilet and sink) for about 10 years. Suddenly stopped working as well. The macerator pump runs in shorter bursts and the water level in the toilet goes down

You should check the 1 1/2" vent pipe if there is one attached to the top of the pump casing. The vent pipe must be vented to the open air, outside of the house so the unit can breath air in and out at all times. A lack of airflow usually creates this type of problems. Leave the vent connection open to the room and flush the toilet, you will see the difference when pumping.

Think my young son put somthing down the toilet filled up with watre wont flush but hums intermitently

Definitely there is an obstruction on the blade or impeller inside the pump casing. Pry open the lid using a flat head screwdriver and remove the motor with pressure chamber out of the pump csing as one piece. Once the motor is out inspect the blade (on top of motor) and the impeller which is at the bottom of the motor. Also the starting capacitor may have seized up. If the capacitor goes bad it tend to hum and not pump any waste out.

The toilet keeps flushing on its own - every few minutes. What can I do?

Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off, definitely somehow water is draining back into the pump casing creating enough water pressure that it makes the unit kick on and off by itself. You need to inspect the flapper on the flush valve inside the toilet tank (water closet) make sure is closing all the way down or it may need to be replaced. Also you may want to inspect the check valve inside the discharge elbow, the check valve has a flapper that opens towards the back of the elbow and allows the waste to be pumped out; when the unit stops pumping the flapper closes back down to prevent waste water from draining back into the pump. The check valve may be defective or may be obstructed and closing all the way down as it should. You may just have to clean it, it may be as simple as that.

Other than toilet tissue, what else is safe to put through the pump?

There are only three things to flush down a toilet.. Number one,, Number two and toilet paper.
That is it ! I don't think you need to hear all the things I have pulled out of sewage ejector pits
in my day..

Personal wipes and feminine hygene products are examples of what not to flush down the toilet.

Hope this helps !

The saniflo keeps cutting in even when not flushed

Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. It will turn on by itself if water is somehow draining back into the pump. It could be water leaking from the toilet tank into the bowl and from the bowl to the pump or the flapper on the check valve inside the discharge elbow may be stuck open or could be defective and allowing waste water to drain back into the pump, once it builds up enough water pressure inside the pump, the unit will kick on and off by itself.
