toilet flush sticking

Post by samleeds on Sat Mar 11, 2017 10:33 am

Ive got one of those big 4 inch wheels that you press down to get flush water and twist to open the box. Its getting so hard to twist and silicone grease or wd 40 are not helping it. I am afraid i might break the connector arm soon. What parts are at fault and can i get spares. Ive cleaned the seals and greased everything in sight. Any idea guys.

Does the toilet cassette open by hand easily when it's out of the van by, turning the slotted knob? Mine recently started to stick, but after giving a thorough clean and then spraying with silicone it was fine.

Actually it's not slotted, it's raised and with yellow stripe, if it's the same as mine.

It's the same. Mine has the yellow top and its stiff as hell on the cassette itself. The cassette is sealed so all I can really do is clean and silicon it. If I could get into it I'd be fine. How do they replace these trap doors anyway. I've had the seal out but no luck.

There are videos on the Thetford website that cover most things.

I lost it today, took the bloody thing apart several times and still sticking so i just trimmed off the top part of the rubber ring and it fits better now and doesnt leak, 

How ever I couldnt get the cassette back in again as the yellow spring loaded clip at the rear of the compartment wouldnt give way until I wiggled it. Does anyone know why that flap is up. It solves no issues and why is it there.

The blade on the cassette sliding across the rubber seal can sometimes be very stiff, because my wife has arthritis in her hands and found the flush wheel hard to turn I bought a Thetford toilet "fresh up" kit, instead of sliding across the rubber seal, the blade swings across the opening and then pops up against the seal. I don't know about the Clubman, but the Executive has the bench type toilet, and the fresh up kit for it is thetford cassette pp c2 r which is pretty expensive at around £100.
The yellow spring loaded part in the cassette compartment is to prevent the cassette sliding out of line of the toilet bowl.
