SOURCE: Slow Flushing mechanism

Check the angle stop at the wall ( valve) if it more then a few years old the rubber inside sticks try turning it off and on a few times. Well first just make sure its open all the way to start. If both of those do not work It might have a screen at the opening of the preeure mechanism...check that the was no line trash caught in it from turning the water on and off. If none of these things work let me know and we can get more technical in find out whats wrong...heck you could have just gotten a bad one. The Plumbing company I worked for when I lived in houston had the contract with them to do there warranty work and boy did we do a lot of it .

Readjust the float. the longer it is the more leverage the fill water will have on it. good luck. The fill valve does come apart and cleaned if there is debri in it. Turn the water off first:)

SOURCE: my toilet cistern is continually hissing

Hi I have exactly the same problem, in fact it could have been me writing this - 3 toliets fine, main bathroom hisses. The Geberit flushing ciphen on the left (the smaller one) has been replaced and there is still a problem. If you look carefully,the water level needs to come up over the lip of an opening on the Geberit part and this causes the valve mechanism to shut off and stop the hissing. It is fine for about 40 minutes and then the hissing starts again if you don't flush it. The reason is that the water level has gone down but there is no obvious signs of where the water is going. It could be that the central flush mechanism is leaking slightly. I am going to replace this part next. If I were you I'd see if you are getting any water leakage into the pan when toilet not in use to see if the water level in the cistern is going down James T

How do i get more water in the toilet bowl?

On some toilets the float level is adjustable inside the tank. If there is an arm with a large ball attached then bend the arm up slightly. If it has a small plastic float then some of these can be screwed up or down on the tube supporting the float. The higher the float the more water that will transfer to the bowl. If your house is built in the 1980's or newer then you should have all plastic pipe and I would switch out to a low flush toilet. If your house is old (pre 1960) then you have cast iron or clay pipe and you may want to keep your 3 gallon flush as long as you can. If you are in the between zone then you need to check and see what kind of pipe was used. A smooth wall pipe requires less water to flush. If you go with a new toilet go for a mid grade one. The cheep ones have poor castings on the inside and it causes friction that results in a miss flush more often. I like the Delta with 3 bolts on the tank in the $150 to $200 price range. If all else fails a new flush valve will come with instructions and they do go bad after a while so now may be a good time to replace it. Flowmaster has been pretty good to me and you can pick one up for about $20. There are ones that are supposed to shut the water off if the flapper sticks but they take a bit more experience to figure out how to set them and you will find yourself flushing the toilet and nothing is happening because the float switch has the water shut off.

My dewalt dpd3300 ,why is it getting gas in the oil

This happens when the gas needle valve in the carburator sticks open. With it open, gas continues to flow into the carburator then into the cylinder and finally down into the crankcase. It can be caused by dirt in the needle valve's seat, a stuck needle or float. Most of the time you can remove the float bowl and flush out any dirt. If there's a lot you should consider flushing the gas tank and check your gas can for dirt. If the washer has been sitting for a long time the problem could be varnish is gumming up the carb works. Carb cleaner works well to flush that out. If the float, needle or seat is damaged you'll have to rebuild or replace the carb.

Float sticks and gas floods motor

the needle is sticking on the caburetor float thus letting the fuel siphon from the tank into the cylinder block. Have the carburetor rebuilt and drail and flush the engine with automatic transmission fluid before putting in nem oil. Should cure your problem.

The front left carb is leaking gas, a lot and at low speed it seems to be loading up one of the carbs. Feels like I'm running on 3 cylinders until I get up some speed. What do you think and how should I go...

Has the bike sat for long preiods ??
sounds like the float is sticking..
Try and get some carb cleaner into the tub..
If that does not work you might need to get the carb cleaned and/or rebuilt..
If doing that - would be a good idea to do all 4...
