This morning I was all set up to dump, switched on the macerator pump and nothing.  No hum. No click. Nothing.

Dumped the old fashoned way.

Ok, we are back home now. I will have time to trouble shoot.  Give me some ideas like: where is the fuse? Connector? How to clear jam? How to test the motor?

Thanks and happy thanksgiving.

Dick

I just fixed,mine last month.First look behind the cabinet with the macerator switch is.You will have to crawl under the vehicle to access this,remove the two electrical spade connectors from the switch.With a small piece of electric wire,momentarily jump the two spade clips together.If the motor runs,then head to the auto parts store and buy a new switch.If you're close to me in Satsuma,Florida,I'd be happy to help you repair it.  Cheers

Good idea.  I will try it first.
Thanks for the offer, but Palm Beach County is too far from Satsuma to be practical.

Have you tried turning the screw in the back of the motor? Sometimes it gets jammed with paper, etc. And you need to turn it manually to get it started.

Jack,

Like what you do with a garbage disposal I suppose.  I will check the back side for how to do this.
Thanks,

Dick

OK. It's working now.  Switch was ok.  Removing the end cover and turning with a flat-blade screwdriver cleared whatever was in it. Good lesson. Thanks guys.

That's often the issue with them, and a lot easier than messing with wires!!!
Good luck & enjoy,
