I am not a plumber but stumbled across the solution on my own. While watching the float during the flush cycle, it was obvious that it was very slow in moving downward along with the water level in the tank. The problem was that the small opening in the float chamber was partially clogged. Using just my fingers, I reached under the float chamber and cleaned off any debris that was blocking the opening underneath the float chamber. Put the float back on, and instantly the problem was solved. The tank fill started immediately after I flushed.

IF YOU HAVE A FLUIDMASTER BALLCOCK,AND IF THE WATER IS CONTINUING TO RUN ,YOU NEED TO ADJUST THE WATER LEVEL,MOST OS THE TIME ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS OPEN THE TANK LID AND ON THE LEFT SIDE YOU'LL SEE THE BALLCOCK,AT THE TOP IT MIGHT HAVE A BLACK PIECE THAT YOU CAN SLIDE UP AND DOWN TO ADJUST THE WATER LEVEL,OR SOME HAVE A PIECE THAT LOOKS LIKE YOU CAN USE A PHILLIPS HEADS SCREWDRIVER,ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TURN IT A HALF OF TURN EACH TIME UNTIL THE WATER STOPS GOING INTO THE OVERFLOW TUBE ,WHICH IS USUALLY LOCATED IN THE CENTER OF THE TANK AND IT WILLBE 1INCH ROUND ,IT ALSO WILL HAVE YOUR FLAPPER OR BALL CONNECTER TO IT.

I would change fill valve. You can use a simple valve such as a Fluidmaster 400A and change it youself if you feel comfortable doing it yourself,just follow insruction on box. Thanks

Depending on many factors such as hard water and age of the internal workings, you float is bad. Probably some corrosion or calcium buildup making it stick. Cheap fix at your local hardware store. Go there and tell them what it is doing and they will sell you a kit to solve your problem.Hardware in you tank is very easy to replace.
