Raritan head not flushing

I have two electric Raritan heads. One flushes and shound fines. The other does not flush and when you push the flush button it makes a softer noise than the other one. I took it apart and there is nothing blocked. Any help is appreciated.

Raritan makes several electric toilet models...which one do you have?

Re: Raritan head not flushing

Very old 1986. LOL-there must be some kind of motor that flushes, I expecting that is the problem because I had the macerator rebuilt last year. No model number anywhere on the unit. There is a side flush handle but we use the Alantes electric button that probably was installed aftermaket on the wall.

Sounds like a Crown 1. But What Peg don't know, nobody knows.
IF it is a crown 1. Sometimes the in-water pump seal goes, and the drain hole is blocked and water gets to the brushes, then they stick and the motor goes really slow.
Sometimes the key on the macerator head rusts, and the motor spins but the pump wont pump. There are too many questions, you need to be a bit more specific, a photo might help..
Look for the model number under the two brass brush covers at the back, you might have to wirebrush the paint off.

Re: Raritan head not flushing

It sounds and looks like it wants to flush, I see things gurgling around behind the plastic door to where the macerater is but nothing is happening. A very slow flush is happening.
Here a couple of pics. It says Raritan Corporation 1990 on the electronics board but no brass brush covers or no model no.

Re: Raritan head not flushing

If the base is all china, it's a very early Atlantes... If that elegant looking base is actually a plastic shroud covering a "box," it's one of the Crown--versions--maybe Crown II if it's not original to the boat.

All the discontinued models are here, so check here first to match it up:
Raritan Engineering | Identify Your Head

If you can't find it there, it's not original to the boat and therefore may still be in production, so check here: Raritan Toilets

and then call Raritan for trouble-shooting solution and parts. 800-352-5630
