If the threads are not stripped on the nut or handle it should be fine. IMPORTANT TO KNOW!!! These are left handed threads, Meaning they tighten up the opposite way of a normal nut and bolt. If the threads are bad or damaged, you will have to purchase a new flush handle. They are not expensive at all. $2 - $10 Dollars. But first try screwing the nut on by turning it to the left instead of the right.

Toilet handle sticks


It sounds like the nylon nut which holds the handle in place is too tight. Try loosening that nylon nut just a little to see if the handle moves easier. Sometimes if they are over-tightened, the handle will be stiff and hard to operate.

Fill the breather hole (1/8" hole) inside the flapper.This is designed to let air out so the flapper will sink. Now it floats longer letting in more water. 25%percent more in my case.

It will not flush properly .rudy


How to Troubleshoot a Flushometer

A flushometer consists of a metal pipe extending from the back of a toilet with a slender handle on the side that is used to flush a toilet. This type of flush valve is commonly used for toilets in commercial facilities to provide a durable and accurate flush delivery system. If the flushometer does not work properly, troubleshoot it and perform minor repairs. Common issues are often resolved quickly. If troubleshooting does not correct the problem, call a plumber for repairs.

Does Not Flush

1 Inspect the handle assembly. A broken handle or assembly will prevent flushing. If damaged, unscrew and remove the handle assembly. Replace the handle or repair it with a handle repair kit

2 Open the main water supply valve to turn the water on fully. The water supply is normally turned on, but check to make sure it is turned on fully and has not been turned off inadvertently

3 Remove the flushometer's CP cover, the round cap on the very top of the pipe extending from the toilet. Then remove the inside cover directly underneath the cap. Inspect the relief valve. Replace it if it is visibly damaged.


Short Flush

1 Remove the CP cover and inside cover. The CP cover is located on the very top of the pipe extending from the back of the toilet. The inside cover is underneath the CP cover and the diaphragm assembly is located beneath the inside cover. Remove and inspect the diaphragm assembly. A damaged diaphragm assembly can cause a short and incomplete flush. Replace it if it is visibly damaged.

2 Replace or repair the handle assembly. A damaged handle can result in a short flush. If damaged, unscrew and remove the handle assembly. Replace the handle or repair it using a handle repair kit.

3 Remove the CP cover and inside cover to remove the diaphragm assembly. If a low consumption diaphragm is installed on a water-saver fixture or a urinal diaphragm is installed on a toilet fixture, replace it with an appropriate diaphragm.

I have a 6 month old Kohler toilet that has a very loose flush mechanism handle- how do I tighten it?


Toilet flush levers are always adjustable. For the most part, there are two types of chains that attach to the lever. Ball chain or linked chain. Either way, you'll see that there is a rod behind the toilet handle lever. That rod has many holes. Re attach the chain to the proper hole on the rod that makes the chain taut and not loose. Hope this helps!

The siphon mechanism works on a vacuum principle. If there is the slightest damage to the siphon membrane you will experience the problem you describe. A new siphon is required.

you either have the wrong flapper or it is not adjusted right try moving the chain to shorter or longer lenght the other thing to check is that your handle is not loose if you have to tighten handle be careful it is a reversed thread also check water level in tank
