Question Electric head squealing/whisling on flush

Hope someone has some suggestions on this: I have two electric Raritan heads, one in VIP and one in Master SR. When the VIP is flushed, it sounds like it pressurizes and whistles/squeals for about 10 seconds after flushing; almost sounds like the line is pressurizing, but the bowl flushes and empties without hesitation. I would suspect the vent system except that the Master does not do this. No smell, no leaks, empty holding tank. It sounds like its coming from the vented loop; is this possible? Any Ideas?

Raritan has more than one electric toilet...which one do you have?

I wouldn’t be surprised if a vented loop started whistling. They are designed to let air into the line. I’d start by cleaning the valve on the vented loop. That’s just a guess but it makes sense and it’s easy to check.

Good choice...making it unlikely it's your toilet that's whistling. I agree with HopCar...clean or replace the air valve in the vented loop.

What is the tune it's whistling? if it's the Andy Griffith (Mayberry) show, you got bigger problems....
