Thetford caravan toilet

Hi all, I'm having problems with a Thetford c250 toilet.
The full level LED if flashing all the time.

I've checked the float switch in the waste tank( grey with orange handles) and all seems ok.

Led flashes with the waste tank in or out.

Held a magnet up against the reed switch pcb and the LED goes out.

So can anyone confirm if the LED flashes when they take out the waste holding tank Or just when it's full.

I'm thinking I've got a problem with the waste tank?

Cheers

The LED should be on permanently when the tank is full I believe, and flashes if the tank isn’t properly inserted.

Thinking the magnet has fallen off the end of the float arm so it thinks the cassette isn't pushed in.

Thanks for the info everybody. Bow down

Problem found in the end, the reed switch leg had fractured where it is soldered onto the pcb.

Re soldered it and all working fine now.
