I recently posted that the toilet flush stopped working for no apparent reason, I had many helpful replies, with checking for an in line fuse , water pump and possible pc board replacement.
My van is a 2019 Swift Elegance 645 and is fitted with the C262 toilet and unlike the C250 models does not have a fuse in the cassette compartment that I can see, it also does not have a fuse under the PC board below the flush switch.

I have checked the fuse (5 Amp) in the main PSU (which also works the piezo ignition) on the cooker and that fuse is ok.
I ordered and fitted for good measure , a new pump, a new pc board for the flush and a new reed board for the compartment that indicates when flush full..
Yet the flush still does not work?
There seems to be no power to the flush unit yet the main PSU fuse is ok and I have looked under the kitchen cupboards of the cable run and can see no damaged wiring?
Someone told that they do not think there is an in line fuse in the C260 models, if that is the case I cannott see why there is no power or what else I can check, before having to take the van to the dealer to sort out?
At ideas of anything else I can check would be really helpful.
Thanks

when you say there is no power.

have you actually tested the circuit to see if its live or are you guessing theres no power because it doesnt work.?

I have put a tester on the feed wires that lead up to the toilet flush and get no reading . However the main PSU fuse is fine and it shares the fuse with the piezo ignition on the cooler and that works fine ?
I have checked the visible wiring under the kitchen cupboards and all the looms look fine .
I can only assume somewhere here is a fuse in line?
If there is , I cannot find it as there is not one visible in the cassette space on the C262 model ?

Must be carefully hidden or a connection has come adrift.

If wired as you say there must be a wire running from the PSU to the cooker and another running from the cooker to the toilet.

Check at the cooker to make sure the wires are still intact and that there is power there.

The OP has the same query running in parallel in the Caravan forum, with many helpful suggestions there.
