SOURCE: toilet running and won't

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.

My toilet won't stop filling up so goes over the

Adjust or replace the float. Odds are its stuck. make sure it moves freely up and down. If you cant see the float "normally located on the left side of tank " adjust screw or nob at the top of tube on left. If you still have trouble, replace or adjust flapper valve [located at the inside bottom center of tank] Adjust with chain hanging from flush handle.

Water won't stop running in the tank.

I guess the stopper or whatever that black rubber thinghie down the bottom is called, needs to be replaced.

Wear gloves when taking it off.

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.
