    over weekend my water stopped flowing on my Burstner T 821 Delfin I first notice while trying to flush loo nothing happened. tried shower bathroom sink tap and kitchen tap nothing. I checked fuses made sure water was full etc pump isnt trying to pump, gave leads a wiggle etc. So I am thinking pump has died possibly I can get to the pump once I have drained down tank ok. But a snag I can forsee is I cant find and connection for its wiring it just dissapears.
    So I am asking you good people for your ideas opinions please how can I figure this out ?
    Thanks in advance Paul

    You really need to be 100% sure there's power going to the pump before you start ripping it out Paul. A loose connection or another fuse somewhere might have gone.
    Good luck:xThumb:

    I was gonna suggest checking there is actually voltage at the pump.
    Use a couple of pins to poke through the sheathing ..

    As to the electrical connection if it IS the pump.. not a problem at all.
    Just cut the wires and join on to the tails left

    I think I'll turn all electric off chop wires then test. I will look for a join but I don't think I'll find it easily. That way of it is pump I can Re join new pump there. And then carry new pump Just in case.

    Well that didnt go to well I drained tank and took a few bits apart and found the pumps join in wire it had been done before by looks of things. Tried banging pump around etc no luck so then I removed pump 1st problem I snapped one way valve i think its part of pump :mad: I then took pump and put it direct to battery bingo it works so put back on and tried all taps and toilet flush nothing. tried a bulb on wires nothing :(

    Double checked fuses and tried looking for other wires but its just a maze of wires I cant figure out what is what I also got wife to turn taps on off and listened to ebox no noises at all should I hear a solanoid ?
    only trace of wire i can find is in the toilet cassette cupboard where toilet cassette is wired in I wouldnt know where to begin here though I will post a picture of connection.

    So apart from scream I really dont know what to do next so HELP please

    pic of pump I have snapped top off

    Helps if you turn the pump switch ON.
