Follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

f the toilet bowl overflows, use a plunger or auger to eliminate clogs. If the toilet does not flush, tighten or replace the defective handle , adjust or replace the lift chain , or replace the flush mechanism. Jiggling the handle forces the lift chain or rod to re-seat the flush mechanism, telling you that something is awry.

If the bowl drains sluggishly, remove the clog with a plunger or auger, or raise the water level in the tank .

If water runs continuously through the toilet, lower the water level in the tank , adjust or replace a lift chain or wire , repair or replace a worn flush valve , clean or replace the valve seat assembly .

If water appears under the tank, tighten the tank hold-down bolts , lower the water level in the tank, replace the float valve , replace a malfunctioning ball , or tighten nuts on the water supply line, replace leaking supply line . As a last resort, re-seat the toilet .

If the seat is cracked or unsightly, replace it .

If the bowl or tank is cracked or otherwise unacceptable, replace the entire toilet .

SOURCE: how to replace a commercial flush valve

These used to very simple but have become more complex as technogy evolves. I will give you the standard answer though.

First shut the water supply off to the aplliance (there is a little decorative cover on the valve that is attached to the water line coming out of the wall. It looks like a nut. Pop this cover off and screw the screw in remember right is closed and left is opened.)

Now it is only a matter of unscrewing the couple of nuts that attach the actual valve.

Most valves come with step by step instructions but even without them it is usually a 30 minute job or less. You will need a flat head screw driver, spud wrench, tubing cutters- to cut the chrome trim tube to size, and some pipe thread compound or teflon tape.
Thanks for using Fix Ya and if I can be of further assistance let me know.

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.

Upvote the help.
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on plunbing or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Glacier bay toilet :water is overflowing into the overflow pipe. Flapper seals properly.


It's hard to tell you what to do without knowing what kind of flush valve and/or float you have. You may need to adjust fill screw on flush valve or seal. Or you may need to adjust float setting to get water to shut off.
If you want to make it pretty easy then replace existing valve with a new one. I like the 400A Fluidmaster.It is easy to install ,adjust,and cheap to repair.They only cost about ten dollars and by following the instructions on the inside of the box you can do it yourself. Tgank you.

When flush my toilet, water keep running until i put my hand inside the middle and pull the float , then stop. toilet make is rapid sl


the ball **** fill valve is a poorly designed valve. replace it with a fluidmaster fill valve and a fluidmaster flapper. flappers do go bad after a year or ten depending on your water quality and choice of flapper but the fluidmaster fill valve will last a long time also. you can also get the water saver fill valve by fluidmaster and there is also a conversion set to change your toilet to a dual flush. all this is at lowes and there is a plumbing pro there to explain further. feel free to give me a positive rating. thanks!

I replaced my fluid master and now it will not stop filling in the tank.


Try lifting the float part of the valve. If the water stops filling, reset the float level lower.
If water does not stop when lifting the float, flush out the valve according to the instructions - steps 12 - 15.

12. IMPORTANT: Always clear sand and rust from system. Make sure

water supply is shut off. Remove valve TOP by lifting arm and rotating

top and arm 1/8 turn counterclockwise, pressing down slightly on cap.

13. While holding a container over the uncapped VALVE to prevent

splashing, turn water supply on and off a few times. Leave water

supply off.

14. Replace TOP by engaging lugs and rotating 1/8 turn clockwise. MAKE

CERTAIN TOP IS TURNED TO THE LOCKED POSITION. VALVE MAY

NOT TURN ON IF TOP IS NOT FULLY TO THE LOCKED POSITION.

15. Turn on water supply. Adjust water to desired level by squeezing water

level adjustment clip and moving FLOAT CUP up or down along stainless
steel link. Check for leaks, then check for proper flush.

If valve continues to run:

IF FILL VALVE WON'T TURN OFF,

• There may be debris at seal - repeat Steps 12-15.

• The seal inside the valve top may be damaged -replace with genuine
Fluidmaster 242 seal.

I have a toto toilet that doesn't start to refill until a couple of minutes after I flush. Any ideas. Thanks.


Several ideas. Start to fill? Have you looked inside the tank to see what's going on? If it just filling very slowly, then you most likely have some calcuim build up inside your flush valve blocking some flow, if this is the case you will have to clean the flush valve. If your flush valve is staying up and the toilet is "running" unitil the float drops. The float (either the arm ballcock style, or newer fluidmaster) is rubbing on either the flush lever or side of the tank, and taking longer to drop to let the water start flowing. I
