Saniflo's are a complex unit, a simple solution would be to replace the pipe work instead of trying to unblock it. It is also possible that the blockage has caused the saniflo unit itself to burn out as it tries to pump the blockage away. Call Saniflo and they will assist you with finding an expert within your area to come and ressolve your issues.

I have cleared one of these, the blockage was in a different place for me, you can buy a bendy pole from plumbing suppliers, you can then use this to move the blockage. Hope you get it sorted.

Saniflow units are expsensive and when they break down and this a potential case for it with a blocked pipe, the best solution is to replace the blocked pipe as it could damage the saniflow unit. Good luck. Mario
