Toilet tank fill valve sprays water towards lid

My kohler fill valve in tank sprays water towards the tank lid. This only started after I had turned off the water supply line for a day while making a different repair. I assume I have to replace the valve, but would this all of a sudden happen?

    I have the same problem and some times the fill valve will not shut off the fill supply.

    Thanks for any help.

    A manual would also help.

    Cheers

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

Water spits out of toilet bowl when toilet is flushed


If your referring to the tank, take the lid off and make sure the small tube is connected from the filler valve to the top of the overflow tube. If that's connected properly, flush the toilet with the tank top off and locate the source of the spray. A small crack in the fill valve can cause a significant spray.

New water valve makes ahigh pitched whistling


I had exactly the same problem. Just turn down the water pressure @ the valve on the water inlet line. While you have the toilet lid off, you may want to remove the fill valve (1/2 turn counterclockwise on the plastic nut attached to the water-in line), and clean the rubber diaphrams (there are 2). They will sometimes get gritty and this will cause some fill noises and leaking.

Tank wont refill after flushing.


The ball **** controls the water flow into the tank when flushed. If the float is stuck in the up position, the water will not fill the tank or the valve could be defective. If after pushing down the float and observing little or no water you need to replace the ball **** or the water valve is turned off. Turn the water off at the shutoff valve. Put a towel under the water supply hose and unscrew the water supply hose at the bottom of the ball ****. Drain any excess water at the bottom of the tank using a shop towel or paper towels ringing them out when they become saturated with water. Remove the ball **** and replace the old one with a new one available from a hardware store. Make sure to follow instructions on washer placement to avoid leaks. Replace the water supply hose and tighten snugly and be careful not to over tighten to crack any plastic. Turn on the water shutoff valve and adjust the float so the water stops at the tank water line.

The tank no longer fills with water so the toilet doesn't flush. Unit has been problem free for almost 10 years. Water supply valve in the back opens and closes. Simply quit.


it's probably your fill valve has gone kaput! try replacing that. turn the water off disconnect the water suppily line and there should be one nut under the toilet tank and then the whole valve should pop right out and you can pick up a new one . fluidmaster makes the best one! and just follow their instructions on installing it.

Running toilet


Mine does that also, here's what I found.; I am on a well and occasionaly sand gets caught in the valve thingy... Take the tank lid off, turn the arm that attaches to the float assy. 1/4 turn towards the back of the tank and take it out. Rinse off the gasket and pin as well as inside the hole. Reassemble and it should solve your problem.

Toto Toilet - no water flow to refill tank after flush


Remove the tank lid and look at the fill valve. Is it a yellow valve?
This fill valve is common on the Toto Toilets and can easliy plug with debrie.

They can be disassmbled and cleaned. however, I usually just replace the valve with Fluid Master Fill valve.
You will also want to check the water coming into the toilet by turning off the water that supplies the toilet and disconnecting the water supply line. After removing the water supply line turn on the water at the valve to make sure that the water is flowing properly. Check the supply line also to make sure it is not plugged.
Be sure and place a small container to catch the water that will come from the valve. A towell will also help from making too much of a mess.
If the Supply line and the valve are clear the problem is in the fill valve.
The G-Max system denotes the Flushiing system which is a 3" flapper that allows the water from the tank to flow into the bowl quicker.
Good Toilets!

Kohler one piece part number 1013282


Hi kayela,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Just replace the fill valve for kohler one piece andthe fill valve sprays a stream of water out of the top and onto the undersideof the lid is that supposed to happen?

For some reason I can't seem to get the picture up. Nevertheless, the answer is no, it should not be leaking. Did you take a picture of the original before removal? Do you still have the original? Look carefully at the diference between the two. Make sure it's an exact duplicate and isn't missing parts. These one piece toilet parts are expensive but the suplier sometimes makes mistakes. You can only solve this problem if they match.

Feel free contact me again!
