What is a solenoid valve
Used bla. solenoid valve in caravans for Thetford toilet, and this article deals with the replacement of solenoid valve and vacuum equalizes.
The solenoid valve is closed when it is de-energized, and the purpose of a solenoid valve for Thetford toilet is, To ensure the water to the toilet only comes when you press the flush button. When you press the flush button opens the solenoid valve – When the solenoid valve is powered open it, and the water can be pumped out to the toilet. When you release the flush button closes the solenoid valve for the water to the toilet.
Why replace the solenoid valve
1) If you have not made sure the solenoid valve is emptied of water in winter, can you risk the frostsprænger, and becomes leaky so that the water runs into the toilet room.
2) At one time does not run anymore due to longevity is worn, and typically does not work properly by the example, it is open all the time. This water comes out to toiletet when there shall come water – It will only open when using the flush button.
We replace our solenoid valve due to longevity is worn, its function is not more – Our solenoid valve does not close when there is no voltage for the solenoid valve.
We choose simultaneously and switch vacuum compensator, Thus, we ensure that all works optimally, vacuum valve is located inside the toilet, and requires to stand most of the toilet at – So it makes good sense and change our 10 years old vacuumudligner new, Now we have started.
Replacing the solenoid valve and the vacuum equalizes
Our toilet is a Thetford C 200 CS, and solenoid valve is approximately. 10 years old. The solenoid valve is located very classification is inappropriate on this model toilet. It is located inside the toilet, why you should discard most of the toilet of before you can get to the solenoid valve.
On newer models Thetford toilets, solenoid valve located more appropriate, Thus, one can get to it by replacement and for maintenance without, that would separate toileters ad.
Now that we replace the solenoid valve we choose, changing the unintended location 🙂 , Thus, replacement and maintenance can be done without, separating most of the toilet at. Thetford is not going on in some of their models toilets.
Changing the solenoid valve location
As stated we change the current unintended location, wherein the solenoid valve is placed inside the toilet. This lead to Distinguish part ad before you can get to the solenoid valve, and in exchange it or maintaining it is not optimelt.
We change now on location, it is not that hard and use common sense, which Thetford not made to this model toilet.
We remove gather fitting the toilet tank and solenoid valve inde in toiletrummet, and swap around on the two locations – Thus, we will forward the solenoid valve in the room where the toilet tank. We can then come to the solenoid valve, so we can switch the solenoid valve and to service 🙂 .
There should be purchased something extra, To change the location of the solenoid valve.
NB. Bushing on the solenoid valve must be tightened by hand.
When buying a new solenoid valve and vacuum equalizes, provided that clamp – You will discover Thetford has not mounted clamp factory, which should be installed, minimizing the risk of leaks. As supplied clamps on the purchase of a new solenoid valve and vacuum equalizes, Do they'd realized the need for clamps.
We can replace the solenoid valve and maintain the solenoid valve without, having to discard most of the toilet at 🙂 .
Here you see pictures of the new solenoid valve and new vacuum equalizes – Note that included clips:
