Unhappy RV Toilet Not Pumping

Have a Thetford toilet in my Pop-up. When I push the big flush knob down it makes a little noise (so not a fuse issue) but does not even try to pump the blue flush water from the tank into the toilet. Any ideas what is wrong?

I had this problem, and the two most likely issues are a blown fuse and seized impellers. It's probably not a blown fuse, because you do get a little noise. You haven't said what model your toilet is, but on mine, it's possible to remove the pump and manually turn the impellers with needle nose pliers. Even that did not do the trick, because there was gunk inside the pump, so I soaked it in a weak bleach solution for a few hours, use the pliers again, and was in business. Google to see how to get to the pump in your model. I found a very annoying, but useful YouTube video for mine.
