SOURCE: How to tighten the hinges on a slow close toilet seat?

You don't want to overtighten since you could crack the porcelain. Are your rubber washers in good shape? This will help. You should be able to do this w/out doing any damage.

SOURCE: We have 3 soft closing Toilet seats.Newly

Reach under the bowl of the toilet and feel for a rather large wing-nut bolt on each side of the toilet. You must hold these with your hand and tighten the screws with a screwdriver. If you don't hold these wingnuts, then the screws will keep spinning forever and never tighten. Run your hand directly below the toilet just below the screws and you will find them. VERY EASY FIX!

SOURCE: Toilet seat hinges are loosening

Most generic seats have a thin plastic cap that snaps in place over the bolt heads just behind the seat. Normally they hinge backwards so carefully pop them open with a flat blade screwdriver. Sometimes you can tighten the bolts from underneath even.

Put your hand around the back of the seat and you will feel the nuts. Tighten them by simply turning them.

Fix an american standard slow close toilet seat


Check the chain the goes between the handle and the flapper.
It should not be taught. If it is it will not permit the flapper to seat
properly and water will leak out. Adjust the chain length so the flapper is seated and there is just a little slack in the chain.

American standard caded 3 leaking water from tank into toilet and occasionally running every 5 minutes. is this a flapper problem (it seems well seated) or could it be leaking elswhere?


It could be a bad seat around the flapper or the flapper itself. Replace flapper with one designed for the Cadet. Check water level and see it doesn't flow above the overflow tube. if it is above the tube lower the float ball by turning the screw at top of ball.

The close coupled toilet seat keeps coming loose. The two phillips screws keep turning and won't tighten. There seems no way to get to the captive nuts...???


I too could not figure out how to get to the nuts since the skirt completely encloses the base. Nor could my plumber until he called his plumbing supply store. They told him they use a type of rubber piece that can be pushed through the hole from the top and acts as a nut. I didn't see it replaced so I don't know the details but I do recall that when I tried to turn those phillips screws that there was a squishy feeling. I don't know how to tighten under those conditions. I recommend you call a plumbing supply store.

Installed cadet 3 and every twenty minutes it will run for about three seconds and i know it isn't supposed to do that


EITHER THE FLAPPER IS NOT PROPERLY ADJUSTED OR YOU WILL NEED A NEW FLAPPER. WATER IS SLOWLY LEAKING BETWEEN FLAPPER AND SEAT. AS WATER LEVEL DROPS ,TOILET WILL RUN TO BRING WATER LEVEL BACK TO PROPER HEIGHT.

I just installed two A/S Flowise Cadet 3 toilets..how tight should the tank be bolted down to keep it from rocking?


The tank should come down until it touches the bowl. You tighten one side a bit and then the other to bring it down evenly. You have to be looking in between the two as you tighten.

How much draw down (tightening) do use to attach the water tank to the toilet bowl on a American Standard Flowise Cadet 3 toilet? Does the tank need to meet the bowl?


Seat the tank well on a new wax ring and then tightnen the two bolts on the sides evenly there is a small amount of pressure but thats it. To much and you'll snap the side of the bowl. You can caulk around the edge if you want more security,less movement.

The tension on the nuts is very tricky just a feel kinda thing.

Be carefull not to over do it.
