Check the level on the float assembly and try and turn it down so it doesn't let as much water through , you might also want to check the flapper in the tank and make sure it's coming down all the way seated that will let water run out as well

Kohler 4634aa is running and I've already changed the flapper, could it be the valve?


Yes it could be valve just cause you changed the flapper doesnt mean that you stop water from filling in tank the valve that shuts water of can still be running the water will go down the bowl fill tube that is were the black tube goes that connects to the top of white pipe the simple whey to find out is just push down on black float and water will stop add in tank let off black ball and water should stop or just lift up on float arm and water should stop bend float arm if necessary.

I have a hissing toilet. My kohler 4708 fills up, and once this happens, the left side of the tank has a constant hissing sound. When I turn off the water it stops.


Your valve inside the tank has worn down and not allowing the water to stop running. Does the water run over the top of the overflow. If so, then adjust your inlet water to a lower level so it will cut off. If that is ok, then likely the flapper is worn out and needs to be replaced.

Toilet running and won't stop.....it keeps running into the little overflow tube


When water goes over into overflow tube then that means 2 things.
The rubber flapper at tank bottom is good and does not need replacement at this point.
That leaves 2 possible problems.
1) The flush valve needs to be adjusted so water turns off sooner.
Flush valve lets water into the tank.
For example if you have a float ball on end of brass rod, just bend the brass rod so the float sits lower in the water.
If you have the 'fluidmaster' then a float rides up and down with water level. There is a metal rod with a metal clip. Squeeze the metal clip and move it downward on the metal rod.
2) If water will not turn off after adjusting flush valve, then replace flush valve.
Local hardware store sells the part and can help with instructions.
You need a crescent wrench or large adjustable pliers.
Plumber can also install the flush valve.

Float does not trigger valve to stop water - continues to run even though tank is full


What kind of flush valve is it? kohler.com shows a couple of different towers with their ingenium toilets. Is it a Kohler item or is it a Fluidmaster?
Usually you adjust water height by turning a threaded rod that runs up and down. See page 5 of this pdf

Toilet doesn't turn off after flush


The Kohler Cimarron is one of the most popular and reliable toilets out there. (My Favorite). However, depending on the hardness of the water and if you use cleaner tabs in the tank, these factors can lead to a malfunction.
The first thing you should do is hold the flapper (rubber seal inside the tank that releases the water down to the bowl) down with your hands for a few seconds after a flush and see if the toilet stops running. Sometimes the flapper doesn't seal properly therefore the fill valve keeps working non stop. Stopping the fill while holding the flapper down will confirm that your flapper needs to be changed.
If this doesn't work then try this....
The other common problem with a running toilet is with the fill valve itself. There is an attached float on the fill valve that goes up and down depending on the water level. Once the water level rises, it rises the float, and the float tells the fill valve to stop filling the tank. While the toilet is running (hissing), try raising the float all the way up with your hand and see if it stops. If it stops but not consistently with every attempt, then you will need to change the fill valve. I believe the Fluidmaster 400A is the replacement model.

After each flush, the tank fills but the fill valve doesn't stop and the water keeps running into the toilet. How could I adjust the fill valve?


Hi,
Usually the problem is dirt in the fill valve and not an adjustment problem...
depending on which valve you have it can be taken apart and cleaned out... just remember to turn off the water supply before taking the fill valve apart...

Toilet fill runs periodically works well but wastes water


Sounds like your flapper is leaking causing the water in the tank to lower until it triggers the fill valve. Replace the flapper (they're cheap and wear out easily).

Toilet won't stop running


I have a Kohler toilet and Ingenium fill valve 85297-AA. My toilet kept running, the fill valve black cylinder wouldn't pop up and when I added blue food coloring to the tank, the blue color seeped through to the toilet bowl. First I replaced the flapper and that allowed the fill valve piece on the cylinder to pop up correctly and blue dye no longer seeped through to the bowl. I still heard a hissing sound when the toilet tank had filled and no water was going into the overflow tube. I called the tech support number on the Kohler website 1-800-4KOHLER (1-800-456-4537) . Here's what solved the problem: Turn off the water to the toilet.Take off the white cap of the fill valve by pushing it down and turning it counterclockwise as you would open up a childproof pill container. Then unhook the metal hook. Hold a cup upside down (I used a strong plastic cup) over the part of the fill valve that is left in the tank and turn on the water. (You need the cup because otherwise the water will squirt up to the ceiling.) The water will flush out the fill valve. Replace the cap and the hook and flush.
