My new Korky fill valve won't refill. It worked for several months but now doesn't make any water sounds. Water is not coming in at all.

Why does the Water valve keep running water when bowl is full?

Because the shut off point is above the overflow tube. You will need to either adjust the arm or bend the float end of the arm downward to make the arm end swing higher to reach the shut off point prior to water overflowing into the tube.

My daughters TOTO toilet kepted running so she turned off the supply line before she went to bed. when she woke up the next moring and turned the water back on, now the tank won't refill. How do I know...

There could be several reasons why it won't refill. It could be the fill valve, which can be replaced with a standard fill valve located at any hardware store. The more likely reason is the stem inside the shut-off of the toilet has broken off inside the valve. This is very common when a valve is older and usually doesn't get shutoff. If this is the case, a new shut-off valve must be soldered on.

Korky anti-siphon. Tank water slowly drops, accompanied by a hissing sound. Then, after dropping about 1/2 inch, it refills. Wha?

either the fill valve is running and water is draining into the bowl via the overflow tube in the tank or the flapper is bad (or foreign matter) and it is allowing water to escape into the bowl slowly...causing the fill valve to run every few minutes or so. hope this helps but if you need anything else just text me here:)

The bowl on one of our Toto Drake toilets, after a flush is complete, has very very little water in it. I recently replaced the fill valve (used a Korky fill valve). Since then I have had this problem

The small tube that comes from the Korky fill valve needs to go down the center of the tube in the tank. It should have come with a clip to clip it inside the fill tube. If the tube is running water into the tank it is just filling up the tank, not the bowl. The tank is filled with the Korky valve from the top of the tower, not the black hose. See the video below to see the black tube I'm referring to and where it should be attached.

The top tank of my toliet wont stop filling. water is coming out of the flush lever??? I had to turn the water off to it

Your Fill Valve needs to be replaced. The life of the Fill Valve can be shortened by the hardness of water or by using tabs to keep the bowl clean. If it is a one piece toilet, use the Korky adjustable Fill Valve. If it's a two piece, use the Fluidmaster 400A. If you attempt this make sure you turn off the water supply valve and flush all the water out of the tank. When you go to tighten the plastic screw, be very gentle and don't overtighten because the tank WILL crack otherwise. Hope this helps!

I flush the toilet, tank fills up and cuts off, but the water leaks out, then the tank cuts back on to fill up and this is a vicious cycle.

Go to the hardware store and get a new flush valve flap made by Korky and install it. Your flush valve flap has worn out and allowing water to leak through.

My Kohler will hot hold water in the bowl. As a result of this we get sewer smells in the house.

Turn off the water shut off valve to the toilet.  Get you a bucket and hold the hose in the bucket.  Turn on the water shut off valve to see if water will run through the hose.  If no water comes out, then your water supply line is clogged.  But if you get good water pressure flowing into the bucket, then you need to replace your cheap *** fill valve.  Go to Lowes and get a quality Korky brand toilet kit and install the thing.  See if that doesn't help you out.
