What do you mean "struggled"?. Do you mean low water output ?.It's yrs since I had one open but I think it's the "actuator"(that's their name). Take off cover again and turn on water valve, looking carefully at actuator. If actuator is broken (no longer has a full circle of plastic) then you will get hit and miss operation...quite literally. Sometimes the electrical switch will operate, depending on actuator's position on shaft.
If I'm right, Ring them and they'll probably send you a couple free (my experience)
Careful replacing it. It won't go on when you remove the old one(full circle of plastic instead of 1/2 circle) You have to remove or loosen the full component the actuator's on....Main valve I think (from memory). But if you can change a tap washer you can do this
You grabbed my interest now..so let's know how you get on
