This could be a problem with the capacitor that has gone bad or something stuck on the blade or impeller and is not allowing the waste to be pumped out. Typically when the capacitor has seized up or there is a clog on the drain pipe, blade or impeller; the unit will just hum and not pump the waste out and eventually back up on the toilet and overflow.

Can the flush mechanism be moved to an external site


Well now, that depends on your ingenuity.
If you can exactly duplicate the action of the flush handle, of course you can move it anywhere you please.
I am at a railroad museum, and railroads could move track switch lever mechanisms several hundred feet away from the switch, it just takes imagination and precision.
Saniflo will not be able to help you, but an inventor might be delighted to do so.
God bless your efforts.

Sanicompact motor operates continuously but bowl doesn't clear. Have emptied bowl manually and poured Saniflo cleaner in.


This problem occurs when the flush button is damp after cleaning the whole toilet with a shower. Solution: Wait till it dries up 2) if you have installed a main switch put it on and at the same time press the flush button.

My Saniflo sanicompact does not flush away, when i press the flush botton it does not work, the toilet buzzes all the time. when the water gets to a level it use to pump away but has stoped doing this.


saniflo buzzing all the time means that the motor is trying to run but cannot. indicates that something is blocking the pump impeller from rotating. unit needs to be removed, cleared and tested. if fault contiues you may blow the fuse (if you are lucky) otherwise the motor will eventually burn out. get this checked soon.

Sounds like a restriction in the outlet pipe, the 2 galls from a flush are OK but the bath or shower is more, especiallly if you have flushed before you shower, try drain unblocking chemicals or flushing the outlet pipe with mains water from a hose

Saniplus motor (flushing noise) keeps repeating


I believe you have a problem with a leak. The pump is filling back up. See is the water is leaking out somewhere. Hopefully, you don't have a leak under the house. The water coming into the pump is going somewhere when it comes on.
