Water shut off sticks open

My American Standard has valve in tank (0915A) that sometimes fails to rise the final half inch needed to shut off the water. It never used to do this, and has not been touched. There is no corrosion or build up on the parts.

Make sure that the float in not touching the side of the bowl. You may oil the hinge on the float. Lastly you may turn off the water , open the valve and see if any of the internal parts are swollen or enlarged interfering with the final rising of the float, and closing of the valve.

Squeaky toilet

As the water in the tank reaches the full mark, the valve that shuts the water off begins to close. As it closes, less and less water is allowed to go past the valve. When the tank is at the full mark, the water is shut off completely. It's like letting air out of balloon. The smaller the opening, the louder the squeal. You may need to replace the float and valve set or some how lower the water pressure at the toilet.

Overflow tube

If you manually pull up on the float of the fill valve will it then shut off? If it does, most likely your water pressure is too high, should be around 60 psi. More then 80 and it won't shut off. You may need to add a restrictor to the fill valve. Most fluid-master units come with one already installed, you could try one of them.

Toilet takes a long time to fill up after flushing

Perhaps the shut off valve is not fully open, or constricted. Try opening and closing the shut off valve to loosen any sediment. Otherwise, replace shut off valve.

I have an American standard tank 4083 that is leaking where the tank bolts meet the bowl

Shut the water off flush toilet and there should be two bolts that you can see at the under side of that tank. You need to remove them bolts and lift off the tank and install a new seal. Sometimes i mean sometimes you can tighten them a little and they will stop leaking. If it has been for awhile id just replace it.

I have a fluidmaster ballcock valve that sometime sticks and the water does not enter the tank. what could be problem

Well, something is amuck with the valve. What you do is jsut replace it. The plastic gets brittle, eventually.
There is also a chance that the shut off valve washer is causing issues. If the problem persists, look into that, also. The washer sometimes shrinks and will not remain open. It is an easy replacement fix.

if you have a captive air expansion tank its most likely bad and leaking inside. means the rubber bladder leaked internally. cheap money and easy to replace. do not even try to test the air pressure in an old one. or try to refill it. replace it. good luck

I have a propane hot water tank that in discharging the hot water out the relief valve (Champion energy saver series)

possible problems not knowing age of unit the
control valve could be sticking open allowing gas to continue to flow until high limit is reached and shuts down valve another possible problem with the newer style back flow preventer being install by water companys the rapid heating and expansion of the water over pressures the water system causing releif valve to pop open and reclose most water heater manufacters are recommending instalation of an expansion tank to allow the growth in volume of water somewhere to go is valve constantly leaking or only during heating cycle if you could supply additional information does unit only leak when heating
or is steam expelled when releif valve opens
t-stat not opening gas valve sticking partially open
bad high limit bad pressure releif valve no expansion tank to allow for thermal expansion if steam is present and unit is boiling water inside replacement of water heater for safety concerns,would be reccomended if only water and pops couple of times water temp not over 140 degrees after most hot water has been used out of tank and is reheating most of capacity probably lack of expansion tank as the releif valve is the final safety device on a water heater is of great concern
the temp control gas valve or high limit are supposed to shut unit done long before the safety limit of releif valve is reached
