Sounds like your flapper is leaking causing the water in the tank to lower until it triggers the fill valve. Replace the flapper (they're cheap and wear out easily).

I have a new Kohler Toilet that has a different flushing system from other Toilets. It's about 1 year old now and I'm noticing a Drip noise on the 1st floor under this Toilet. It looks to me like the water...


Basically, if water is flowing out of the overflow tube, then water must be coming in...I would suggest that you check the intake valve, it is probably not shutting off completely when the float comes up to the prescribed level,and continues to leak some water into the tank. That is what the overflow tube is there for.

Float does not trigger valve to stop water - continues to run even though tank is full


What kind of flush valve is it? kohler.com shows a couple of different towers with their ingenium toilets. Is it a Kohler item or is it a Fluidmaster?
Usually you adjust water height by turning a threaded rod that runs up and down. See page 5 of this pdf

After each flush, the tank fills but the fill valve doesn't stop and the water keeps running into the toilet. How could I adjust the fill valve?


Hi,
Usually the problem is dirt in the fill valve and not an adjustment problem...
depending on which valve you have it can be taken apart and cleaned out... just remember to turn off the water supply before taking the fill valve apart...

Toilet keeps running even when manually lifting floater to max


check handle to ensure no tension is on the flapper chain when not being flushed. check flapper to ensure positive seal to flush valve. check water level to ensure not overflowing into flow valve. if that's the case, lower water height.

then if still doesn't work, change flapper,

all else fails, change flush valve.
good luck,
steve

Replaced the flapper with a new one and the toilet will lose water until it triggers the fill valve in maybe an hour. Is the gasket betwenn the tank and the cistern leaking slowly?


check the fill tube. sometimes they crack, put some food coloring in the tank and that will help you find leaks too. gently squeeze the tube and see if you see water running down the inside of the tube
