SOURCE: Quiet-Close Kohler toilet seat lost its quiet close feature

Hello len_moon, Look under plumbing in your yellow pages for a Kohler distributor. Also here is the web page for you part numbers. You will need the hinge assembly. Copy and Paste to your address bar. Hope it helps!

SOURCE: slow closing toilet seat not working

It needs a new air shock on it. You might be able to take the old one apart and fix it but replacement would be best.

SOURCE: QUIET CLOSE TOILET SEAT COVER

There is no adjustment for a slow close/quiet close seat. It would defest the manufacturers intent.

SOURCE: My slow close toilet seat

WOW! Slow-close toilet seats. What will "they" think of next, to pick your pocket?

Slow-open mechanisms such as cassette players and top-loading DVD players use a special type of grease to achieve that effect.

The screen on the laptops uses a friction mechanism based on a "clutch-spring" with enough holding power to keep the display in the position selected.
This "clutch-spring" is factory adjusted so it neither slips under the weight of the laptop screen, nor is so tight that extra force is required to close the laptop.
These things do wear out, and as a rule are not user serviceable.

Can you adjust it? Good question!
Can you adjust it so it works? Ahah!
My rule of thumb: If it's already broken, how much more broken can it get?

Therefore, my conclusion is that the toilet seat's slow-close mechanism is factory set at the point where it will neither slam down nor stop half-way, but glide down gently until it's closed.

An interesting added feature would be for the toilet to recognise who's about to use it, and for what, select the seat position be it up or down, and then regulate the water volume needed to flush.
Also, it could flush itself once the lid is fully closed, to avoid or minimize the dreaded "toilet flush mist". arrrghhh!!!

Self closing all in one tolet seat boxed, hidden screws, how to tighten


If you are trying to install a standard toilet seat on a special "smooth sides" toilet, it likely will not work. Most hidden bolt toilets come with a special seat because you cannot get to anything from below. This special seat has a set of expanding style bolts that are attached to the screw that is part of the seat. The plastic expanding bolt goes into the hole(s) on the toilet, and as you tighten the screw on the toilet seat bolts, they expand the plastic part in the hole of the ceramic toilet.

After flushing flusmate toilet a very loud siren-like sound occurs.


Try changing the opening of the water valve that feeds the toilet... just open the valve a little bit, try again, if noise is still there try closing it a bit... the noise is probably from the water valve vibrating and changing the position often will eliminate it. The valve should be obvious, it's what the water supply line from the toilet connects to.

We just installed a new one piece toilet from Neptune. It makes a loud noise when you flush it and after the water fills up. In addition, if you flush another toilet or turn on the washing machine it also...


Hello. I doubt that the installer would not install it properly. That said, the issue you are having makes me wonder if your bath drain plumbing is properly vented to the outdoors through the roof. Joe

Noisy fill valve


You may have higher than normal water pressure. Try closing the the cutoff valve on the wall half way and see if that helps. You can experiment with it till you find the best position. You can get a pressure gauge that will attach to a hose bib for a few dollars to see if the pressure is too high (more than 80 psi is too high). If it is too high you can have a plumber install a pressure breaker on the line where it enters the house.
