Question about Toilets & Bidets
Problem is not related to the flapper leaking. Sometimes it shuts off, sometimes it continues to run at full flow. It seems to be a problem with the valve mechanism. I cannot find any adjustments, does the valve need to be replaced or is there something else to check?
You need to replae the float valve
go to Ace hardware and get a fluidmaster fill valve kit
they range from $7 to $9
turn water off at riser( up to the tank
flush toilet remove tank top lift the flapper up and lt water drain
get bucket or small bowl
remove the plastic nut that holds the silver risr or flex line
look up under the tank there is a large lock nut screwed onto the plastic fill tank assembly
remove the nut (try to place bowl to collect wter left in tank
remove the float assembly from inside the tank
Install new fluidmaster ( flow step by step directions

I have had this problem in the past as well. What you need to do is try and find a piston complete for flush valve. Part #9208.83.00. Five years ago they cost $22.50 each. If you can locate the part, I would suggest getting a few, they are hard to find and it seems they only last about 5 years.
