I have the American Standard Champion 4 toilet. Water is leaking from the tank to the bowl causing the toilet to refill. I've replaced the flapper and cleaned the surface the flapper contact. Nothing seems to work.

SOURCE: Toilet will not fill up

Some Toto fill valves have a plastic debris screen located at the inlet connection. Turn off the supply valve and remove the supply connection at the bottom of the tank. Use a mirror to inspect the screen for debris.
I agree w/ Smithbrother, the Fluidmaster fill valves are cheap and work well. The only thing they ever need is an occasional seal for $1.50 and 5 minutes to replace.

SOURCE: American Standard Champion toilet keeps running

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:)

VOCAL FILLING american standard 6 ltr flush --when the last half of the tank is filling ,it becomes quite vocal , like a loud hum ! any ideas ?


What probably is happening is the valve in the fill tube is warped or worn. The easiest fix is to replace the fill valve with a new fluid master. This is where your noise is coming from.

My brand new toilet american standard round front model cadet 3 tank not fill water


If you verify that the water supply to the toilet is turned on, push down the float on the flush valve. Water should start flowing. If it doesn't, something (such as debris) may be blocking the valve and preventing filling. The new valve could be defective - permanently closed.

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.

We have 3 toilets in the house. the tanks won't refill after flushing


You may have dirt getting into your water from the well and clogging the fill valves in your toilets. Valve assembly can be opened and cleaned out from the top. Instructions are available on AS website for your model. (Note) If you are picking up material from your well, a sediment filter should be added to your water line.

Hi keithn60...

I had the same problem one time with my toilet tank, the answer is to put some silicone on the seal washer between the take and bowl assembly and to use a level on the tank to tighten it just enough to be level and not leak.

Toilet flushes intermittently by itself.Water leaking into bowl.flapper and float valve seem to be okay.This is a hamilton 2092.


Check the fill valve. it may have a bad seal inside or some trash in the water supply (iron or calcium deposits) may have clogged it. Do you hear water running when it's not flushing?

My American Standard toilet flushes okay but when it is filling up the water will not stop running unless I lift the top and depress the lever.


Replace the fill valve. You can pick one up[ at Home dep or Lowes for about 20 buks. Close your angle stop at wall behind toilet. Drain all water from tank then remove supply loine from under tank. Then unscrew fill valve and remove gasket and all. Remember to put gasket in new one. :)

Flush valve drops before bowl completes flush


is the flapper weighted? if it is it will cause it to shut prematurely. one thing you can do is increase the water in the tank. you might have to buy a pvc cuppler to put on the over flow to allow it to fill up more. korky makes a nice flapper thats not weighted
