Hi Peggie! Nice to see you. If you're correct and he is talking about the macerator in his toilet, this might be a good time for him to up grade to a Raritan Sea Era conversion kit.

After re-reading the OP's complaint 3 or 4 more times, I'm no longer sure now that he IS talking about the toilet pump. But why would he refer to a macerator for a HEAD if he was referring to the dump pump for a tank?

Whichever it is, low voltage to it is a pretty good guess for the source of his problem.

Many times people use the wrong words when talking about subjects they don't understand. It seriously contributes to the lack off communication found on these boards, but what can you do? We would hope the OP would come back and answer any questions, but very often, they don't.

I have a pair of Par macerating heads, they are original to the boat built in December of 1986. They are very noisy but work very well. A replacement motor assembly includes everything so you remove the motor & pump assembly as a unit & replace. The cost is $207.00 thru the marina, being a liveaboard 8 - 9 months a year I'am going to add one to my spares this year for that time I push the button & nothing happens.
