Pull the lid off the toilet, disassemble the toilet handle mech and take the cartridge out of the big black tank under there. the cartridge should be available at any local plumbing parts house. let me know if you have problems

Why am I having to hold the handle down to get it to flush?


Rubber or serrated plastic gripper linked to float is worn or broken off.
When cistern is initially flushed, handle linkage pulls rod & seal up & away from drain, allowing water to rush out.
The raised float presses a gripper against a rod or tube, keeping it and the seal raised while H2O is still draining into bowl.
As water level drops, so does float, releasing it's attached gripper from the plunger rod or tube, allowing seal washer to fall into place, and release the mechanically attached handle.
Without grip, rod & seal drop immediately you leave the handle.

To short of flush


Take the top off the tank and look at the water height. Adjust the float valve to raise the water to the line on the back of the tank. There is usually a little screw.

If the tank is already high, try holding the flush lever down. Newer tanks are dual flush, which a short flush with a quick press and release (for having a wee), and a long flush holding the handle down for ... well you get the picture :>)

Toilet handle sticks


It sounds like the nylon nut which holds the handle in place is too tight. Try loosening that nylon nut just a little to see if the handle moves easier. Sometimes if they are over-tightened, the handle will be stiff and hard to operate.

Flapper valve closes too quickly


Fill the breather hole (1/8" hole) inside the flapper.This is designed to let air out so the flapper will sink. Now it floats longer letting in more water. 25%percent more in my case.

Have to hold down toil handle for 4 secs to flush


Assuming we are talking about a standard flush toilet, it sounds like the internal flush actuator lever is hitting the top of the toilet on the inside. Remove the lid, hold the exterior handle. and carefully bend the lever down a little. Also make sure the lever hasn't slipped or is loose. Put the lid back on try again. Repeat until the toilet flushes with the lid on.

Toto toilet, flapper doesn't stay up long enough to flush


One of two things is the problem. First, make sure that you have a tight chain with little slack. If there's too much slack, the flapper won't catch in the passing air to stay up. Second, the flapper is not correct for that style of toilet. You might want to look into purchasing a new Kolby filter that has a removeable cone in the center. Move that cone to 12 o'clock to allow the maximum amount of water to run through the flush valve. If the flapper you have now is flat, it needs to have a cone in the center on the underside.
