The slide on the toilet has jammed so that the blade only opens a very small amount. Have tried to see what the problem is but cannot find any clear reason why. Can anyone help?

Yes.

Buy a new one.

No way would I fiddle about with that.

ยฃ100 well spent, thank you very much.

Getting my hands a bit 5hity vs £100 the 5hit will win every time. I've mucked out many a shipon and changed many a nappy so not averse to a bit of poo.๐Ÿ˜‰

If its a Thetford C250/C260 the mechanism can be bought for around for around £40, and if your not sure how to remove the old one as my son keeps telling me "look on the internet"!

When we first bought our Coachman, despite the handle in the bathroom being fully to the open position, to blade only opened about 2/3rds. The fault wasn't in the cassette but a geared quadrant in the toilet itself was misaligned. It took me about 5mins to remove the quadrant & reposition it. A new cassette would've been a wasted £100 ๐Ÿ™„

I am with MM.  Take it apart identify the faulty component from the drawings on the Thetford website  and replace. Throwing something away because one is too fastidious to clean it up or even wear a pair of gloves is crazy, do theynever replace a seal either?
