Anyone replaced the pedal on Thetford toilet
« on: June 27, 2015, 09:55:31 am »
Yikes--the pedal on our Style II Thetford toilet fell off--not good. I took a mallet and tapped it back in and for now it is holding. After checking on-line, It seems that this is a problem with this toilet. I will call Thetford Monday AM. It seems like the inside channel was worn which allows the pedal to pop off.

Has anyone had this problem? If so, what was the fix?

Yikes is right--thetford does have a you tube video on taking off the old pedal (not a problem for you) and replacing with a new one.  It does show what a good pedal should look like on the back side, maybe you can determine what went bad on yours and come up with a temporary fix.  Apparently you can get foot pedal repair kits for these.  Here is the link to the you tube video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=blDNqLrTdF0

Thanks. I found that video this morning but the design of the pedal is different than ours. I hammered that sucker on and we pray that it holds 'til I call Thetford and see what to do to repair.

One guy on some Forum that I was on this morning bought a new base unit to fix his problem. Hope we don't have to do that. Shipping to Maine would be a bear!
