300. Why does it occasionally get stuck in the up position or fails to refill tank completely?


It has been my experience that they are reliable. Fluidmaster instructions say to flush the valve (not the toilet) after installation to purge debris. It may be necessary to do this again. Also check for interference with the refill tubing. The float and linkage should be able to move freely.

My fluidmaster 400 anti siphon for toilet will not stop filling making pump run over and over


Hi turtlerose07...

Sounds like you have one or two problems with the fluidmaster 400.
1...The float is set too high allowing the water to overflow into the overflow pipe and allowing your pump to run too much.
2...Flapper valve inside at the bottom of the tank is not sealing properly, thus allowing water to leak and causing the fluidmaster to keep trying to fill the tank with water and causing the pump to run too much.
Please take time to rate me

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.

Fluidmaster S2DBL the stopper sticks up position who do I fix this.


If you're talking about the fill tube sticking in the latched position (not dropping), it's probably due to a sticking flush cable. Call Fluidmaster and they'll sen a replacement part.

Removing arm on#88592 to stick thru side of tank


If you are referring to the flush knob, the nut is reverse threaded. Remove the nut, then swing the arm to the left, and pull straight out of the tank.
