Not sure about your brand but many toilets have a flapper valve inside the tank which needs adjusting or replacing. Try this U tube link

Toilet is not flushing


sounds like you need to adjust water level in tank,take lid off and check if theres enough water to flush should be a water level line in tank.

My Mansfield toilet flushes but only 1/3 of the water in the tank flows out during a flush and the bowl does not get enough water to flush everything.


Check the water level int he tank for it coming up to fill line in tank. Make sure the 1/4 " fill line from the fill valve is connected and in the stand pipe tube to allow water to fill bowl. Fluid master makes a flapper that has adjustments on it to increase or decrease water used to flush. It has a dial to move on it this would be another option if the above tried doesn't help.

Thansk and I hope this will help you with this problem.

My mansfield toilet 160 has a weak flushing problem


My toilet had same problem:
I thought it was a clog in the drain pipe.
But the problem was clogged holes where water flushes into toilet bowl.

Here's how I fixed problem.
Purchase:
Gallon of CLR calcium-lime-rust remover from Home depot.
Pumice stone from hardware store.

Home supplies:
Cut off bottom of empty clorox bottle to make container for CLR
Old 3" paint brush you don't use for anything else to apply CLR
Small cup to pour CLR into toilet flapper opening

Steps:
Look inside toilet bowl under rim and see holes where water comes out
Use brush and apply CLR to holes where water comes out.
Use pumice stone to scrape ... pumice stone will not hurt toilet surface.
Flush toilet to clear holes so far.
Turn off water to toilet.
Open flapper to drain tank.
Keep flapper open.
Use cup and pour dose of CLR directly into flapper opening.
(You can also pour CLR down overflow tube... but flapper opening puts whole dose directly onto problem)
Pour another cup of CLR into opening.
Notice how CLR starts coming out the holes into bowl.
Pour CLR down flapper hole until it runs easy and fast out of holes.
Close flapper, turn on water, toilet fixed.

When flushing the toilet, there is not a lot of "push" behind the flush. I'm having to flush two times, regardless of what is in the toilet.


It is normal for these useless new tanks to do that. Won't even flush a piece of paper. Pull off the lid and make sure the little hose is in the overflow pipe, and raise the water level as high as you can. take out all the bricks and water bottles, and bowl cleaners. Then give it a try. It might do a bit better. Hope this helps.

MANSFIELD TOILET KEEP LEAKING


I'm not exactly sure where the seals are that you are describing. I'm thinking that you might need to shut the water off, unbolt the toilet from the floor, and replace the big wax toilet gasket underneath.

That's the main seal for internal plumbing in the toilet, unless you're talking about the toilet leaking into itself and wasting water. In that case you might need to simply adjust the mechanism (float, flapper valve etc.) to get the right setup.

I'm not sure I completely understand your problem though.
I hope this has helped anyway.

I have a quantum toilet that flushes normally but then syphons the water from the bowl Possible problem?


Look for your main plumbing vent that goes out your roof, is it pluged with a nest or something? When your drain system drains, it needs outside air from the vent to keep the system from vaccume lock. Same as vapor lock in the gas line on your vehicle. If the system is'nt getting air it will **** the water from the traps in your drain system like it is doing in your toilet. You may have to have a professional drain cleaner or plumber correct your pluged vent.

The flush valve gasket is leaking so the toilet water runs periodically


You prbably just need a new flapper valve. Buy one at Home Depot for a few bucks and it will, simply, snap into place at the base of the tank. Also, make sure that the chain is not too tight and cut off any excess chain after the flapper is installed.

Have Mansfield #160 and hear a fog horn like sound when flushing toilet. What can I do to fix?


Are your wast water pipes in your house vented through the roof? If they are maybe the vent pipe is clogged. At my father in-laws house the pipes are not vented through the roof like their supposed to be to vent sewer gas. they are not vented at all. Every time you flush it sounds like someone is downs stairs screaming. Something to do with air/ suction in the pipes.

Mansfield 160 extremely difficult to make it flush


If this is the model am thinking it is, you need to replace the flapper. it goes down in open to far and gets bound.Or if you have hard water or calciaum buildup,it is making for a tighter opening. I hope this helps. :)
