Then you either have to lower the water height so that it doesn't overflow the overflow tube, or you have to replace a seal on the ballcock or replace the ballcock with a modern style.

SOURCE: tank will not refill after you flush

okay depending on the type of toilet ball **** (i know its a funny word, but it's really what its called.) you have one the most standard type is the long wire with the big ball on the end. you need to adjust this ball **** so it goes lower test it out, flush your toilett and wait till the water drains then when its supposed to come back up push down on the ball **** and youll see the water will start to fill, so then adjust the little screw on the fill valve (the other side of the floater where its attached)

you may need to shut off your water supply and drain your tank depending on how skilled you are,

pretty simple work, if you have questions feel free to ask.

SOURCE: the gmax continues to run and won/t stop

if it worked fine and now it has stopped....then there is no adjustment that will fix it. If the fill valve is not shutting off you either need to replace the seal in the valve or get a new fill valve. If the water is leaking past the flapper you will need a new flapper.

SOURCE: The toilet continues to run after flushing, i.e.e

The fill valve is stuck on and needs replacement, checking this part every year is a good idea.

SOURCE: water shooting out from the top valve when toliet

According to the Make and Model listed in the heading there is a couple of areas on the fill valve.

  1. The coupler nut may be loose. This holds the float valve, Tighten.
  2. The 'O' ring by the coupler nut may be worn/damaged. Replace.
  3. On the other side of the float valve Assembly is a cap and underneath the cap is a seal. check this for wear or damage.
I hope this helps in what to check for a Kohler K-3467 one piece toilet. Thanks for using FIXYA. Good luck and have a great week. Jeff

SOURCE: on my eljer toilet, I get continuous running of

I don't know what you mean by "pumping" the tank. If the toilet runs, then either the fill valve is defective or the seal on the flush valve is defective. First, check to see that when you move the float, the toilet stops running. If it does not, then replace the fill valve. If it does, then inspect/replace the seal on the flush mechanism at the bottom of the tank. If this seal is bad, you can usually see water continuously flowing (slowly) into the bowl. You will see ripples on the surface of the water in the bowl.

After flushing the toliet continues to run. flapper will not automatically go down


Replace it and see if fixes it. The flapper is designed so that it stays afloat until all the water empties from the tank, then gravity takes over and closes the hole up and thus fills up. If you have a ballcock then the flapper may get trapped underneath when you flush it.

I have a Jacuzzi low flow toliet. Sometimes the water won't shut off after it is flushed


A frequent cause of this is a defective flapper. If the flapper does not seat properly after a flush, the refill water will flow continuously

My toliet keeps running. Have checked valves flap etc. I turned the water off , using the little toliet tap. Can I turn it on too much,making the pressure to high??


Replace the flapper. That is cheap to do. You can turn the water on near wide open And it should be ok. In other words, if you can't turn it on wide open, then something is wrong. I would just turn it on about 3/4.make sure your flat is not allowing the water to go over the top of the open tube.in the tank.

Sounds like the water tank keeps filling


2 possibilities.1. The water level is set higher the the overflow tube. This will cause the water to run into the overflow continuously. You should be able to see this. 2. The large seal - bottom center of the tank - is leaking. This will cause the water level to slowly drop after a fill. The water tank will start to run again after flushing - BUT NOT CONTINUOUSLY. You should see if there is a small amount of water flowing from the rim to the bowl 15 seconds after the water has stopped running after a flush.

We just installed this toliet yesterday and there was nothing in the instructions about how to set the water level, there is not enough water in the tank to flush the toliet properly


Depending on the type of water regulator/flush valve you have it varies. Usually there is a screw that regulates how much travel there is on the arm with the float on the end, or the float that moves up and down on the column. If you restrict this movement the water fills less and vice versa.

After flushing, water fills up tank and continues


Your problem is the water fill valve. Check this link.http://www.rd.com/17646/article17646.html
it's not the flapper or flush valve.

Yes, it will run up your bill! Sounds like the float is hanging up. Take tank lid off and flush, watch the float and if your tank fills quickly but does not stop, bend the float arm to angle the float down further, this should allow your water to stop coming in much quicker. The other possibility could be if the plug at the bottom does not seal correctly after flushing, if so, the water will leak until the plug sits down all the way.
