Question about Kohler Cimarron 2-PC Elongated Toilet with EcoSmart Technology, Left-Hand T...

1 Answer

My Kohler Cimmarron one-piece (new - installed for only one day) suddenly won't stop filling the tank. I checked for dirt or obstruction under flap and raised the valve ball all the way up manually -- still won't stop running. Help!

Toilet not flushing properly


Check the fill valve for any obstructions, or the diaphragm under the top cover. where the small hole attaches to the top of the fill valve. Why was it removed? If due to blockage the blockage may still be inside the bowl trap.

Water is not coming out on the top of the fill tube that connects to the overflow tube


It doesn't usually have water coming out. If it fills the tank, it is ok. The water is coming out at the bottom anyway. However, the adjustment on the tube is off and not allowing water in .

Kohler toliets can be a pain to repair. I have found with them that the only thing to do with them is go to a plumbing company, take the model number with you and replace all in the inner parts to it. You will replace the fill valve and flush valve. After I do this on Kohler I don't have anymore problems with them. It should work for you, just make sure they are Kohler parts. Good Luck

Water in bowl. water level almost below where bowl saris to widen! , Kohler cimmarron - Toilet tank is full, all water flushes out of tank when flushed it's been this way since we installed it


If I understand correctly, your water level inside the bowl is 3 or 4 inches from the top of toilet seat?
Sounds peculiar to have that water level since you would get splashing etc.
That is not sanitary, and would be a code violation.
Look at side profile of tank.
Look at porcelain behind bowl and you can see outline of "s trap."
This is the internal trap that each toilet has built in.
Purpose of trap is to a) set water level inside bowl and b) just like a sink trap, seal pipe from sewer air from entering home.
Photo shows trap on sample toilet, with line showing approximate level of water inside bowl.
Since photo is at an angle, the line appears to go downward instead of level. Again the line is approximation, and photo intended to show where you can look on your toilet.
Your tank should have similar s-trap feature. From the feature on your tank, you can see what level water is intended to be inside bowl.
Some more expensive tanks, outline of s-trap is not apparent.

If the water level is so high that you experience unsanitary conditions, this is a code violation, and toilet should be replaced.

Have old kohler, i do not know what the inside flapper part is. However toilet will flush but tank will not fill. I can turn thhe water to the tank off and turn on again and it will fill


This indicated that there is dirt of corrosion in the flush valve assembly that get jarred loose and flushed out when turning on the supply valve below. My recommendation is replacing the flush valve assembly with a Fluidmaster flush valve. Be sure to follow the instructions when removing the old valve and installing the new one. If you need step by step instructions, please message me and I will provide them.

After each flush, the tank fills but the fill valve doesn't stop and the water keeps running into the toilet. How could I adjust the fill valve?


Hi,
Usually the problem is dirt in the fill valve and not an adjustment problem...
depending on which valve you have it can be taken apart and cleaned out... just remember to turn off the water supply before taking the fill valve apart...

Kohler Highline Class V tech toilet. Bowl does not fill. Why? What can I do to fix it?


Check tank for fill line running from fill valve to overflow tube. It will be a 1/4 " line that allows the tank and bowl to fill. It should be connected from fill valve and connected at the top of overflow by a clip or hanger.

Check out the water level in tank to make sure it is filling to line on overflow or within 5/8" to top of overflow pipe.

Toilet fill runs periodically works well but wastes water


Sounds like your flapper is leaking causing the water in the tank to lower until it triggers the fill valve. Replace the flapper (they're cheap and wear out easily).

Toilet tank fill valve sprays water towards lid


Hi bpmorr1,

It may be that the fill tube has come disconnected . It runs from the top of the fill valve to the overflow. The overflow is the tube that runs up the middle of the tank. The fill tube runs from the top of the fill valve to the top of the overflow tube. Kohler has a little clip that can sometimes come undone and cause spraying.


If that doesn't do it, turn the water off to the toilet and take off the tank lid. Partially open valve ( Slowly). Locate where spray is coming from. If it is in the area on top of the fill valve then yes, buy anew one. ( Fluidmaster )

Please rate this response and good luck, Phil
