SOURCE: Delay on tank fill after flush. Toto Drake bowl ada elongatred

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.

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

I have a 2016 Jayco Silverline 25 ft van. Recently when connected to mains water water leaks back out of the rear tank fill point. I have to switch on the pump and run water off. What causes this ?

call jayco service center ( any one ) and ask if there is a float valve in the tank to shut of flow when connected to mains pressure ( may need a pressure regulator on the mains hose ) if there is then either mains pressure is too high or the float is not sealing off when full
if no float you will have to turn the tap off when the tank is full

How do I check if a current overflow' problem is due to the Sensor or the Rainbank?

take the sensor above water level--say in a bucket of water then lift it out of the bucket
if the mains water flows or stops flowing depending on whether the sensor is in or out of the water will indicate it sensor or solenoid of the rainbank
I suspect that the sensor will be a simple float arrangement filled with mercury so that when it is hanging down ( no tank water) the mercury bridges a set of contact points and makes a circuit and when it get to a fill point the mercury flows away from the points and so breaks the circuit

Used bissell how do i know if parts are missing

The main water tank is two staged; you put clean water in and the flexible bladder allows the machine's pickup suction to fill. This removes the need for two tanks (but it's harder to clean out the suction tank area). Just remember to clean the filters each use. There's one on the underneath of the clean water tank cap and one under the FLOW INDICATOR cap. You may need to get a User's Guide. Try calling the Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691 Hope that helps.

My machine won't meter water into machine

When doing inside jobs on the machine see that the power line is off the wall mains. Also note which line goes where before dismantling it.
First try turning off the machine for 30 minutes. Disconnect the pipes at the back top of machine, to see if water comes full flow from your water supply. Check the fine filters on the machine inlet entry, they could be blocked, clean out with old tooth brush. Some filters are removable.
The FH indicates a fill failure and this is usually caused by a bad water valve, flow meter or pressure switch.
One key to determining the cause of the FH error is how fast the error comes up in a cycle. If the error appears within 1 or 2 minutes then the most likely cause will be the water valve or flow meter.
If the error doesn't appear for several minutes then the pressure switch can be the source of the problem.
Both water valves must be turned on and working. Even if a cold wash is selected at some point during the fill the hot water valve will be energized and if there is no water then the FH error will show up. Sometimes a consumer will turn the hot water valve off to save energy but you can't turn one valve off on some washers.
Inlet valves can be purchased thru the net and fitted by you easily.
Water into machines are not 'metered', it is measured by your flow meter inside the machine. A line going up from your outlet area to your panel above to activate a switch, according to water pressure.
Pl click if helped. There are gud videos on YouTube.

Washing machine won't fill

This can be due to a clogging of the inlet valve as the water flow is restricted. You can remove the water line to the washer and check the flow , then check if the inlet valve works after the power is switched on the washer , If there is no flow to the drum then the inlet valve is faulty provided there is power to the valve or the main controller is faulty

Downstairs toilet won't stop filling, upstairs toilet won't fill

for the upstairs if the valve is fully on there is not much you can do other than replace water service to the house or heaven forbid repipe.Valves usually don't restrict fill volume.But you can take the supply loose from the tank and stick it in a bucket turn the valve on and check the flow.this should narrow it down.Down stairs repair or replace flush valve
