Siamp 99b inlet valve still not shutting off after diaphragm replacement

This is driving me mad! I had a problem with a slow, constantly running inlet valve. I've replaced a perished diaphragm in the lever arm assembly making sure all the right notches etc are lined up and although the water now flows into the cistern at the correct rate and the inlet valve appears to (nearly) shut off when the float valve is lifted, there's still a small amount of water leaking out of the bottom of the valve, so very slowly but surely the water fills up the overflow. I've tried postitioning the float valve as low as possible but just can't stop that trickle...

SOURCE: toilet cistern doesn't fill up

it sounds like one or more of your shut off valves has a glog from hard water calcium. were from indiana its a big problem here.To check this u will have to shut off main water supply and remove top of shut off valve and check for white crusty blockage, even if u see a few particals its present. It can severely restrict flow.

SOURCE: hissing sound in tank (fill valve)

Dear Sir,

It appears you need to adjust the float level so that it applys more pressure quickly to completely shut off the water going into the main filler tube. Does the hissing go away when you lift up on the float toward the ceiling? If it does, then you need to what I said above. Turn your float ball out farther, or carefully bend your rod down toward the base of the toilet so that it applies more pressure quickly. This should solve your issue.

SOURCE: valve to stop water from running

IF YOU HAVE A FLUIDMASTER BALLCOCK,AND IF THE WATER IS CONTINUING TO RUN ,YOU NEED TO ADJUST THE WATER LEVEL,MOST OS THE TIME ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS OPEN THE TANK LID AND ON THE LEFT SIDE YOU'LL SEE THE BALLCOCK,AT THE TOP IT MIGHT HAVE A BLACK PIECE THAT YOU CAN SLIDE UP AND DOWN TO ADJUST THE WATER LEVEL,OR SOME HAVE A PIECE THAT LOOKS LIKE YOU CAN USE A PHILLIPS HEADS SCREWDRIVER,ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TURN IT A HALF OF TURN EACH TIME UNTIL THE WATER STOPS GOING INTO THE OVERFLOW TUBE ,WHICH IS USUALLY LOCATED IN THE CENTER OF THE TANK AND IT WILLBE 1INCH ROUND ,IT ALSO WILL HAVE YOUR FLAPPER OR BALL CONNECTER TO IT.

SOURCE: I have a Jacuzzi Perfecta toilet (bought Aug. 21,

Have you tried shutting water off and take top of valve appart and flush it out. It may have something in valve causing water to be restricted. It will have an arrow on it to direction to get it to come off.

Take appart and clean rubber disc and you can put something over top of valve , a small cup or something to enable you to flush the tank. Have someone help you and hold the cup above the valve so that when you turn water on for a few bursts to flush out the valve it goes into tank.

The actual stream that flows through valve is restricted down to almost 1/8 " opening so it wouldn't take mush to block the flow of water.

The disc you take out you can replace it, if it seems to be damaged and not working correctly. That will affect the flow also.

Testimonial: "I took the valve apart. It is working like it is supposed to. That sure is a tiny hole for the fill water to shoot through. that is why it is so slow. It still whistles when filling. Tnx Walter Neaves"

Broke the plastic screen that goes to the cold water inlet valve?


The broken bit of filter has probably got stuck under the rubber diaphragm in the inlet valve. You will have to strip the inlet valve and remove the piece. There should be 3 or 4 screws holding the valve together. Make a note of how it comes apart. There will be a spring, a metal plunger and the rubber diaphragm inside the valve.

Dual flush toilet takes a long time to refill after flushing


Empty tank and remove the unit where the water comes in. Now look inside the bottom of the unit. Is there a rubber piece in there? Get a pair of pliars and pull it out.It's restricting the re-fill flow. I had the same problem and did this to two of my toilets and now they re-fill in just seconds. Don't know why they even put those in there.

Water flows constantly during the spin cycle


Servicing Water Inlet ValvesIf the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced.

My washing machine is over filling it is draining away but only if you put it on a spin the inlet water is constant and is always filling and wont cut off then it leaks from door seal and tray for washing...


Water inlet is controlled by a level switch and hot/cold water valves,( solenoids). It seems most likely that one of the water valve diaphragms is faulty;turn off hot and then cold taps to determine which one is leaking.A handy person can often strip the valve and replace the diaphragm, or else
a service person may be needed.
At times, the water is measured by weight,(depth) and during spray rinse by the timer, therefore, if you are using a cold rinse, ,most likely the cold valve is faulty.

Cold waeter inlet (somewhere besides the shut off valve) very slow. checked hose and shut off, screen not blocked..


hi, are you refering to your machine not producing cold water? If so then you might wont to check your main water pressure from the inlet hose first to ensure that pressure isnt the cause of the decrease in water flow. If pressure is ok then the problem will most likely be a faulty Inlet Solinoid valve being clogged due to tiny particals in the water causing the internal diaphragm of the valve to stick. Worst case scenario is your control module is faulty and is not sending adequate voltage to the solinoid terminals, hope this helps.

Dishwasher keeps filling with water at the end of the drying cycle even if you turn it off.


You have a faulty water inlet valve. Switch the water off at the valve and pull the machine out. Then tip the machine on its side and if you can remove the bottom panel. If the bottom doesn't come off then you can access the valve from the back. Unscrew the water pipe and remove th pipe that goes from the valve to the machine, then remove the 2 screws that hold the valve in place and take it to a spares place to get a new 1 or go online and use your make and model to order a new 1 and reverse the process. hope this helps.

The water dispenser in the door of my ge refridgerator constantly is running water, like it is stuck on. We had to shut off the valve to stop the flow. Any suggestions?


HI, This will be the result of a failed water inlet valve. There may be debris present in the structure of the valve, that is preventing the valve from closing, correctly. This is know as mechanical failure. This will require you to replace the valve, asap.

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source. Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place, and replace the valve.

Water leaks through hot feed into machine and eventually out of door when machine is not in use. it is a slow leak taking several hours to fill up


This most likely means that the hot water fill valve is faulty and not shutting off fully and needs replacing. This is a fairly simple and cheap job which you can do yourself or call in a repair man.
