Saniplus has continual loud noise and won'y switch off

That could be due to the membrane (#15) in the schematic diagram, the membrane might be stuck in the on position or it might be warped, that's why the unit is staying on the whole time and not shutting off. The membrane is what activates the pump on and off. You will have to open up the unit and inspect it. You can also visit their website at to download the installation manual.

2000 gmc jimmy starts in AM fine won't start after sitting in sun all day

Can you jumper the fuel pump and make it start and continue to run ?
Have you checked to see if you are getting spark when it won't start ?
Could be a relay or coil, ignition module, or other component.

2005 V-6 mustang , fuel pump will not run

it's designed to only run until it builds a specific pressure. once the pressure is reached it turns off. if the car isn't running and you suspect the fuel pump drop the tank take the fuel pump out. use two pieces of wire and hook it straight to the battery and see if it continues to run. if it run continuously thats is not your problem as it will continue to run trying to build up pressure but it won't be able to considering it's not in an air tight system

Saniflow wont pump

If your Saniplus macerator won't pump and the motor is humming or spinning slowly it is 95% likely that the internal motor capacitor has failed - most common problem with these units

I have posted repair instructions here:

Sani plus motor continuing to stay on after the water has gone.

The Saniplus works on a pressure chamber ((float switch) i suggest that you remove all the piping attached the unit, remove the pump completely out the back of the toilet, pry open the lid using a flat head screwdriver, remove 2 or 3 screws from front and back of pump casing. Then the motor with pressure chamber can be lifted out the top of the casing as 1 piece. The pressure chamber is a white casing attached to the motor and where the power cord comes out the top. At the bottom of the pressure chamber you will find a black rubber membrane, it might be warped or solids could be build up at the bottom not allowing it to shut off. If you need to order parts you will have to call Saniflos hotline.

The SaniPlus toilet was just installed in my basement about a month ago. The water and waste will not go down. The motor continually runs, but the water level does not go down. Could it be blocked or is...

There could be a blockage somewhere in the drain pipe or inside the pump casing not allowing the waste to be pumped out. Refer to the installation manual/technical data manual and take a look at the schematic diagram for the Saniplus, It will show every component inside the pump casing, the short discharge pipe (# 7c) and long elbow (# 8) may be split open or not attached properly and waste water is just cycling inside the pump casing and not pumping out.

Saniplus pump runs and pumps a cup of water and

unlikely to be a vent problem - more likely a semi blocked 22mm outlet - hence the problem with the old unit & the new one. Tricky to solve as 22mm pipe runs are too small for conventional pipe cleaners. Some plumbers use compressed air to clear, others us pressured water (jetter) unfortunately it always ends up a bit messy.

Continually pumps

Probably the waste pipe blocked, it should have a rubber join that has worm screw clips securing it, I connect a hose to the"up" pipe and flush the blockage out.
