I cant get the tank to fill after a flush. It seems like a pin or something in the power flush 2 assembly does not always seat again after a flush. The water just keeps running. This has been a problem from the beginning but is getting worse.
If it's a Turbo Flush 2 block in the water wait for presssure to bleed down and the top section (cap) you can turn counter clockwise this will release the top section. In the top section that comes off there is a black rubber seal, replace it (any hardware store) and this should fix it. That's about the only thing that goes wrong with them.

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.
Please take time to rate me
If I understand correctly, the tank that holds water is not filling up with water.
1) If this is the problem, then you need new toilet fill valve. Or clean sediment out of existing fill valve by removing and soaking in CLR calcium rust lime.
To replace fill valve: Look at water supply line coming into tank. Supply line connects to fill valve.
Buy new fill valve at home center, hardware store, or walmart, or online. There are two nuts connected to valve. Each nut has companion rubber washer
One nut & washer seal water supply line to tank. Second nut & washer seal valve to tank.
2) If water tank is full of water, but water does not flow rapidly into bowl when you push flush lever, then your toilet is clogged with sediment.
To solve sediment problem when flush water will not flow rapidly into tank, then buy CLR calcium lime rust. Pour CLR down into overflow tube located inside water tank. Make a funnel by cutting off bottom of water bottle, or cut paper cup into a funnel. Pour cup-full after cup-full of CLR into overflow tube until sediment and CLR are coming out all flush holes located under-rim on bowl.

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.
Is the fill line in the tank loose? Does it just shoot water into the tank itself? I had this issue until I realized the while fill tube is supposed to be pushed into the black cylinder/small plastic tube in the middle of the stopper assembly. After i pushed the line into the tube, the bowl would always only fill a little bit. Now it fills almost a 3rd of the way up the bowl and doesn't bubble during flushes.
There's a lot of variety in the works in the toilet tank. Assuming this is not a pressure-assisted toilet-----First understand the three valves are:
1. The shutoff valve - on the supply line coming into the toilet tank.
2. The fill valve - inside the tank, opens with the float descends, closes when the tank fills up.
3. The flush valve - inside the tank on the bottom. Common old style is a flapper on a pivot. Yours may operate straight up and down rather than on a pivot.
Three very common problems are----
1. The chain that connects the handle to lift the flush valve is getting caught, not allowing the flush valve to close.
2. There is problem with the flush valve being able to get a good seal when it closes - could be debris or misalignment.
3. The fill valve is not closing when the tank is full, could need adjustment or there is debris preventing the valve to seat.
Here's are some steps to diagnose---- close the shutoff valve. Wait a few minutes as you watch the level in the tank. If the water level decreases, you have problem with the flush valve.
To confirm the fill valve as the problem, turn the shutoff valve back on. Lift up on the float that is supposed to turn off the fill valve. If it shuts off, you should be able to adjust it - most have a +/- plastic adjustment screw. But if raising the float by hand only slows it down, you have problem with the seating of the fill valve - which can sometimes be cleaned, but more often would need to be replaced.
I hope this is helpful. Thanks for using FixYa.
Remove the top of the water tank.
check to be sure that the flush cover (about in the center of the tank) can close all the way. It seats into a 2 inch hole - and must seat all the way around. If it fails to seat, then the fill valve (on the left side of the tank) will continously let water into the tank.
As a starter experiment, you may try just turning whe water off at the wall shut off. Then inspect the tank to confirm that it is losing water.
If confirmed, then the above solution is correct.
If it is not losing water, then the fill valve is faulty and will need to be replaced (it is allowing water to over flow into the "OverFlow" tube.....
I recommend that you keep the water turned off at the wall until the toilet is needed - and the problem is repaired.
Lift the tank lid off, place it somewhere safe for a moment, and look at what happens: If you're talking about jiggling the handle to get the tank to start to fill with water, then it sounds like the chain or rope is out of adjustment. It can't be TOO TIGHT or the water will leak past your flapper (will cause your dripping noise, tank water level will leak down, causing constant refills), and it cant be TOO LOOSE or the toilet won't flush correctly. Since you didn't mention trouble flushing the toilet, I think that it may be a little too TIGHT. When you jiggle the flush lever-it is supposed to pull a chain or cable to open the flapper at the bottom of the tank. Flush the tank and watch what happens-all the way through to refilling the tank with water and shutting off the water refill valve-Does the flapper get stuck on the chain or something? It is supposed to fall back down to allow the tank to refill after flushing out your toilet. Does the chain look very loose? The dripping sound you described indicates that the flapper is not sealing 100%. The flapper is very easy to replace, you just have to get the adjustment set for when you flush the toilet how sensitive you need it. You amy have to play with it a little bit before you get the adjustment correct.
The fill valve needs replacement unless you can take the top off snd find out what is keeping it from closing. I had one I took apart for the same reason and found a piece of plastic in the valve seat. Good Luck, Ned
I have the same problem and can not find a solution. The toilet flushes fine but then a delay in filling up the tank occurs. Is there a part I can replace? Does something need to be cleaned or cleared?
