Water is not coming out on the top of the fill tube that connects to the overflow tube


It doesn't usually have water coming out. If it fills the tank, it is ok. The water is coming out at the bottom anyway. However, the adjustment on the tube is off and not allowing water in .

Toilet keeps running water in back tank keeps running over top of drain hole


You don't have to replace, You just need to adjust the fill valve. If you have the ball **** type just tight the top phillips screw. If you have the newer type, close the water valve under the tank and Push down a plastic ring at the bottom of the filling valve, Push down the top of the valve, lift the plastic ring to it's place and open the water valve.

Water squirts from tank while filling


Take lid off and check that the fill tube is in place. If so flush with lid off to see were the water is squirting from, be prepared to clean up water...If you can, do a slight flush. If there is water coming from any where but the bottom of fill valve and the fill tube you may need to replace the fill valve. In my experience, the fill tube is dissconected.

Tiolet not flushing right. Water not coming down the side of the bowl when flushing and 90 percent of the water is gone from the bowl.


1- Check ports out under rim all round bowl.

2-Check tank fill level for required amount to with in 5/8" to top of over flow tube.

3-Make sure 1/4" fill tube is connected to over flow tube. From fill valve to overflow tube.

Below is a few details to go by I hope will be helpful for you to take care of this problem.


Under the rim of the bowl check the ports and make sure they are not stopped up. You can open them up with nail or pin to clean out ports.
Next check tank level and make sure the fill valve has a line run from it to top of the overflow tube. This line allows water to goe to bowl and tank to fill required amount needed.
Water in tank should be within 5/8" to top of over flow tube.

Kohler Highline Class V tech toilet. Bowl does not fill. Why? What can I do to fix it?


Check tank for fill line running from fill valve to overflow tube. It will be a 1/4 " line that allows the tank and bowl to fill. It should be connected from fill valve and connected at the top of overflow by a clip or hanger.

Check out the water level in tank to make sure it is filling to line on overflow or within 5/8" to top of overflow pipe.

My American Standard toilet flushes okay but when it is filling up the water will not stop running unless I lift the top and depress the lever.


Replace the fill valve. You can pick one up[ at Home dep or Lowes for about 20 buks. Close your angle stop at wall behind toilet. Drain all water from tank then remove supply loine from under tank. Then unscrew fill valve and remove gasket and all. Remember to put gasket in new one. :)

Water running off and on and comes out from top piece.


you unfortunately need a new fill valve. I say unfortunately because they are expensive, (about $120), for that model and not everywhere sells them. It it was a "regular" toilet, the part would be a any home store and cost about $10. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. How old is the toilet? You may consider replacing the whole thing.

Toilet cistern doesn't fill up


it sounds like one or more of your shut off valves has a glog from hard water calcium. were from indiana its a big problem here.To check this u will have to shut off main water supply and remove top of shut off valve and check for white crusty blockage, even if u see a few particals its present. It can severely restrict flow.

Toilet tank fill valve sprays water towards lid


Hi bpmorr1,

It may be that the fill tube has come disconnected . It runs from the top of the fill valve to the overflow. The overflow is the tube that runs up the middle of the tank. The fill tube runs from the top of the fill valve to the top of the overflow tube. Kohler has a little clip that can sometimes come undone and cause spraying.


If that doesn't do it, turn the water off to the toilet and take off the tank lid. Partially open valve ( Slowly). Locate where spray is coming from. If it is in the area on top of the fill valve then yes, buy anew one. ( Fluidmaster )

Please rate this response and good luck, Phil

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.
