SOURCE: Toilet won't shut off

Does it leak from the overflow? If so then the washer at the top of the Fluidmaster needs to be replaced. If it is not going over the overflow then you will need to replace the flapper on the flush valve.

SOURCE: Possible toilet leak or doesn't stop running...

this sounds like the ballvalve needs replacing & the hissing is the sound of water as the valve is not shutting off properly.
The valve at the bottom of the tank is possibly just a half turn valve so try that & see if it stops the water.
The water leaking could be thatthe water level is too high & leaking around the handle assembly & running down, so it kinda looks as though its leaking below?
The handle assembly may of come adrift so thats whay the handle may look loose ?

Solution sounds quite straight forward, a new ballvalve assembly needs to be fitted & the handle assembly sorting.
The leak will be rectified when you replace the old ballvalve, as you will need to turn off the water to the unit to remove the ballvalve, whilst the water is off a service valve should be fitted so as any future probs or servicing needs doing then it can be isolated without the need for turning the whole house off?

This work should be carried out by a registered plumber & is as i said a straight forward job.Price approx £65.00 subject to a survey by the plumber.

I hope this has helped

kindly

Richie

SOURCE: Toto Toilet - no water flow to refill tank after flush

Remove the tank lid and look at the fill valve. Is it a yellow valve?
This fill valve is common on the Toto Toilets and can easliy plug with debrie.

They can be disassmbled and cleaned. however, I usually just replace the valve with Fluid Master Fill valve.
You will also want to check the water coming into the toilet by turning off the water that supplies the toilet and disconnecting the water supply line. After removing the water supply line turn on the water at the valve to make sure that the water is flowing properly. Check the supply line also to make sure it is not plugged.
Be sure and place a small container to catch the water that will come from the valve. A towell will also help from making too much of a mess.
If the Supply line and the valve are clear the problem is in the fill valve.
The G-Max system denotes the Flushiing system which is a 3" flapper that allows the water from the tank to flow into the bowl quicker.
Good Toilets!

I have minute amount of leakage into the bowl causing mold to grow. I believe that it may be the rubber seal for the flapper body to the porcelain.

Im a woman so i dont know much about this stuff but my toilet bowl wont refill and i need to know what to do... i have a fluidmaster 200a


Take off the cover and look at the mechanism when you flush. It's possible the set screw that keeps the flush rod in place has just loosened. If not then the easiest way to deal with this is to replace the Toilet Refill Valve. Turn the water line at the base of the toilet to off. Flush until most of the water is out of the tank, the go to Home Depot and buy this:

Fluidmaster Toilet Tank Fill Valve 200AX The Home Depot

Unscrew the old one and screw in the new one.

hiya:) This is a result of a very minor design error (i am a big fan of FluidMaster products) combined w/a slightly higher than normal water pressure situation or foreign matter stuck in the valve somewhere. try turning down the water pressure via the shuttoff under the toilet tank:)

Toilet running and won't stop.....it keeps running into the little overflow tube


When water goes over into overflow tube then that means 2 things.
The rubber flapper at tank bottom is good and does not need replacement at this point.
That leaves 2 possible problems.
1) The flush valve needs to be adjusted so water turns off sooner.
Flush valve lets water into the tank.
For example if you have a float ball on end of brass rod, just bend the brass rod so the float sits lower in the water.
If you have the 'fluidmaster' then a float rides up and down with water level. There is a metal rod with a metal clip. Squeeze the metal clip and move it downward on the metal rod.
2) If water will not turn off after adjusting flush valve, then replace flush valve.
Local hardware store sells the part and can help with instructions.
You need a crescent wrench or large adjustable pliers.
Plumber can also install the flush valve.

I've just installed a Fluidmaster 400 Series. When I flush the toilet, it doesn't refill the tank unless I tap the Float.


The first thing I would check is to make sure that the body of the float or the linkage that connects the float to the top of valve are not rubbing on inside of the tank and stopping it from moving freely.
Also when tank is full hold float down so that all air that is inside the top of the float is let out. I hope this hepls you. Thanks.

Bought a new Fluidmaster from Home Depot and lost my instruction sheet in english......Colony FitRight two piece toilet. after flushing, the water still runs (most times) into the refill tube. It looks...


First, turn water off at wall valve under toilet. Next, find the plastic ring/collar almost at the bottom of the fluidmaster's shaft inside the tank. Pull UP on the locking ring/collar until it comes loose. This releases the upper shaft from the lower shaft and it can be pulled up or pushed down on the lower shaft to make the entire shaft taller or shorter. It has to be pulled or pushed over some plastic grooves, so it may take a bit of twisting and/or moderate force to move it. You must LOCK the ring/collar back down to the bottom of the upper shaft before turning the water back on. Locking the ring back down may require a bit of twisting back and forth to line up those grooves inside the shaft. Only turn water back on after this lockring is pushed securely back down, after adjusting the shaft height.

I have fluidmaster in my mancesa toilet. After flushing the toilet tank doesn't refill unless I turn off the water supply and turn it back on. What do I do to fix this problem. Wayne


First thing to do is figure out if the problem is with the fluidmaster or with the shutoff valve. If the water doesn't run at all after flushing, then instead of cycling the shutoff valve, just loosen the nut where the supply tube attaches to the fluidmaster (under the tank). If the problem is in the fluidmaster, it will start to squirt out at you, otherwise it won't. Then you know what to disassemble and attempt to repair, or replace.

Toilets are refilling between flushes


Replace the flappers, and clean around the flapper seat.

Make sure the water level is 1/2 " below the large vertical tube by either bending the float rod down or adjust the skinny silver rod on a Fluidmaster unit.

Tank water level to high


if you have the old style(a ball at end of rod) try to ben brass rod down. like put an arch in rod. use two hands and not to far it could snap. if it is a fluidmaster. there is a shinny metal rod with a clip. pinch clip together and slide rod up. this will make it shut off sooner. hope this helps. duane.
