JC most commonly the ball **** will hang up on the side of the tank. Take the lid off and ensure that it is in the down position. If it is not bend the rodso the ball move away from the side of the tank. If the toilet is running continously and the tank won't fill you will need to either replace the flapper valve which is in the bottom center of the tank or adjust the chain on the flapper and handle to allow the valve to open momentarily and close once the water level reaches it and drains out the hole.If all of the above did not resolve the issue you will need to replace the ballcock valve which is the piece the water supply attaches to underneath the tank on the handle side and protrudes through the tank and has the ballcock rod attached to it. The best replacement is a Fluidmaster as they are very easy to self install and easy to adjust the water level in the tank. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

Delay on tank refill after flush for American standard toilet


The washer is sticky inside the valve. Depending on the type, you either replace the washer or diaphragm, or completely replace the inlet valve.

Easy job, just Google or YouTube.

What causes a loud gurgle after flush?


If the flapper does not seat correctly and completely, refill water flows into the bowl and causes a "false flush" and the loud gurgle. You can demonstrate this by holding the flush handle depressed after a normal flush. Also, there may not be sufficient slack in the flapper chain to allow it to seat correctly.

If the flush valves were installed exactly according to the instructions, they should work perfectly and can be excluded as a source of the problem.

American Standard Carlyle Series toilet is refilling about 10 percent of the water in the tank every 20 minutes. Do I need to replace the flapper or the entire flush valve?


Start with the flapper. They tend to dry up especially with water that contains chlorine. Purchase the American Standard flapper if available for that toilet. Works better than generics.

I bought a toilet from homedepot in toronto 6 months ago. from yesterday, it keeps to refill the tank like every 10 seconds. but i can not see where the water leaks


There are a few likely causes for a toilet to leak and refill. The most common is the flapper not seating properly. Usualy on an American Standard it is a disc. Either way, they are fairly easy to replace. One test I use to see if the leak is comming from the flush assembly is to put a couple drops of food coloring in the tank and wait a few minutes to see if it appears in the bowl. If so, there is a leak in the flush assembly, usualy the flapper. Hope this heps. Please vote to let me know.

Problem: water tank running water and refilling itself


probably the flapper valve is not seating correctly over the outlet. you can fix it by reaching in and twisting the valve one way or the other till it seats properly and the leak will stop.

American standard cadet 3 leaking around seal


get a new filler assembly. the water in the tank is heavy enough to close the seal completely. or the rubber seal is not making contact. thats' why the leak.
change the whole assemble ususally correct the problem.
adjuste the flow to about 1/4 to 1/3 under the over flow. if that still don't give you the pressure. you ca adjust the flow tube to 1/5 under the cover. that is the max.

Toilet tank is refilling slowly.


Hi AaronYC,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumbe.

Your problem is: Installed a new American Standard Cadet 3 toilet bowl and tank at home. When you turn the water supply on, the tank refills normally and stops normally. After you flush, the refill is very slow. When it refills normally the water comes out from the bottom of the pipe (i.e. the pipe that houses the float cup) and when it is refilling slowly, it comes from the top of the pipe. Sometimes (but not always), you can shut the water supply off and when you turn it back on, the flow of water goes from slow to fast instantly - but you haven't been able to recreate this consistently.

These are the facts. American Standard has been keeping costs down by out sourceing. Their toilets are now built in third world countries and parts are made cheap. They're all doing it. Quality control is pretty good but your toilet came with a bad "ballcock". That's the refill part on the left. Because it's new, if you take the ball **** back to place of purchase they should give you new. If not, they cost less than $ 10.00 and easy to replace.
