Quantums are good chairs, but they have had some electronic issues. My first recommendation would be to see if you have the most current firmware update. This may take a tech with a newer programmer to do.

Quantums usually have a panel on the back of the chair that the joystick and other things plug into. Remove the panel and check the connections. Sometimes, the plugs work loose or begin to wiggle. I've had to secure a few with electrical tape to make sure they don't loosen.

My '06 Honda Odyssey has gotten noisy recently.

If it is filled up to the "full hot" mark then you are okay, fluid wise. It almost sounds like once it gets warmed up, it starts running better. The "growling" noise (especially when turning) could be from it not getting enough fluid. Other than that, your power steering pump maybe on its last legs, and it is taking time to warm up before it starts pumping fluid correctly. Just make sure that you power steering resevoir is completely filled to the proper mark.

Did you replace the flush valve or the flapper?

There must either be a problem with the seal between the two surfaces of the flapper and flush valve or the flapper is being prevented by the flush system to returning to make a seal against the flush valve after the water completes draining during the flush cycle or more likely water is draining through the overflow tube.

Make sure the sealing surfaces are clean and not damaged.

Make sure the flapper is not being interfered with and is able to return to the closed position to make a complete seal against the flush valve.

Check adjustment of the water fill level to make sure the water is not filling above the water overflow. If the inlet valve does not shut-off when the level is adjusted to the proper level the water inlet valve may need replacing.

After the tank fills water contiues to flow thru

The fill valve needs replacement unless you can take the top off snd find out what is keeping it from closing. I had one I took apart for the same reason and found a piece of plastic in the valve seat. Good Luck, Ned

Only fills 80 gallon tank 1/5 or less then shuts off.

I am not familiar with your unit but if it is controlled by a pressure switch, you may try readjusting it or replace it. Weak springs of the contacts may be causing your problem. If it is controlled by level probes, then the relays of the control circuit may be defective.
