Had the same thing happen when a guest flushed a tampon down the head
(WTF were they thinking?).
Don't worry, it's easy to remove the electric
from the backside of the unit without removing the head
. Something's probably wrapped around the chopper blades. Shut off the water
supply and exit hoses, then remove the four small screws. Be careful not to loose the "O" ring gasket
. If there's no obstruction at the macerator, you'll need to dig a little deeper into the problem... probably with a plumbers snake. Probably a clogged hose. If the motor has seized, you should be able to find a replacement at your next chandlery
. It's always a good idea to carry a couple of spare motors.
