SOURCE: toilet running and won't stop.....it

When water goes over into overflow tube then that means 2 things.
The rubber flapper at tank bottom is good and does not need replacement at this point.
That leaves 2 possible problems.
1) The flush valve needs to be adjusted so water turns off sooner.
Flush valve lets water into the tank.
For example if you have a float ball on end of brass rod, just bend the brass rod so the float sits lower in the water.
If you have the 'fluidmaster' then a float rides up and down with water level. There is a metal rod with a metal clip. Squeeze the metal clip and move it downward on the metal rod.
2) If water will not turn off after adjusting flush valve, then replace flush valve.
Local hardware store sells the part and can help with instructions.
You need a crescent wrench or large adjustable pliers.
Plumber can also install the flush valve.

Crafsman 2400 watt generator star ok but only run for 45 sec.& it won't star again the motor is a briggs & stratton 5.0hp


I have a Craftsman Snow Blower with a Briggs & Stratton Engine. I had the same problem. I searched online and read a little bit about this run and stop problem. One solution was to put something over a piece of metal that separates the hot engine part from the other part of the other side of the engine. I used a piece of heat resistant cloth from Lowes in the plumping area where the torches are. It fit and worked. Engine keeps running. I ran it for over an hour last spring prior to storing it.

My toilet won't stop filling up so goes over the


Adjust or replace the float. Odds are its stuck. make sure it moves freely up and down. If you cant see the float "normally located on the left side of tank " adjust screw or nob at the top of tube on left. If you still have trouble, replace or adjust flapper valve [located at the inside bottom center of tank] Adjust with chain hanging from flush handle.

My daughters TOTO toilet kepted running so she turned off the supply line before she went to bed. when she woke up the next moring and turned the water back on, now the tank won't refill. How do I know...


There could be several reasons why it won't refill. It could be the fill valve, which can be replaced with a standard fill valve located at any hardware store. The more likely reason is the stem inside the shut-off of the toilet has broken off inside the valve. This is very common when a valve is older and usually doesn't get shutoff. If this is the case, a new shut-off valve must be soldered on.
