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. :)

Is there a way to change the toilet from front flush to top flush to accommodate the button on the top of the unit in the tank?


So did the top not come with the tank itself, is it a replacement? Or is it a tank where you can choose top or front flushing?

In my experience the mechanism for top flush is more complicated than front flush which just lifts the flapper. Take the top off and look. See if there is a link that can be taken from the front and clipped to the top. you state is has a 'self contained unit', so it doesn't sound like a standard lifting flapper, so you may well be able to choose.

Toilet flushes intermittently by itself.Water leaking into bowl.flapper and float valve seem to be okay.This is a hamilton 2092.


Check the fill valve. it may have a bad seal inside or some trash in the water supply (iron or calcium deposits) may have clogged it. Do you hear water running when it's not flushing?

I have a new American Standard Cadet 3 that was just installed. After flushing, the water fills into the bowl. However, after several minutes, the water in the bowl slowly drains away and is nearly gone....


Sorry for problem with new toilet.
You say water is leaking out of the bowl?

Toilets have 2 parts:
1) Tank: where water is stored for the flush and is sealed with a flapper.
2) Bowl: where water flushes down.

a) If tank is leaking water, then flapper is suspect. Replace flapper and see if that works.
Lift up flapper and run finger around rim to see if there is a rough spot that would indicate flush valve is defective, and needs replacement.
See typical flush valve

b) If bowl is leaking, that is very unusual and would indicate a crack in the porcelain.

If installer sold you the toilet, it is his responsibility to make good on product.
All products are guarantee against workmanship flaws.

After flushing....water just dribbles back into the top tank...what needs to be done...can anyone help ????


Most likely the problem is with the fill valve or ballcock. Will need to turn the water off to the toilet and remove the supply line that connects the water to the fill valve. then there is a nut that holds the fill valve to the bottom of the toilet tank. remove that nut and the fill valve will lift out of the tank. replace the fill valve with a reverse process and that should cure the problem.

Toilet bowl doesn't hold water but tank is full


The bowl is filled up with the little hose inside the tank, it locks inside of the overflow drain. And runs water in there as it flushes to swirl the water and fill the bowl. Water seeks it's own level, and the level in the bowl is at the top of the trap. It has to hold water, unless it isn't filling or it is leaking. Check out the filler and hope the bowl doesn't have a crack in it. Hope this helps.

Flush valve closes before toilet flushes completely?

After depressing the flush lever the flapper closes to quickly


The flapper is designed to close quickly. It holds more water in the tank then it uses to flush. That way it is ready to flush again quickly.
If it is not removing all the contents then there may be an issue with venting or blockage in the pipe.

The toilet sometimes will continue to run after flushing


the chain should have some slack to it being too tight it dose let the flapper sit properly so itll keep running because water is escaping

American Standard Champion toilet keeps running


Readjust the float. the longer it is the more leverage the fill water will have on it. good luck. The fill valve does come apart and cleaned if there is debri in it. Turn the water off first:)

Have to flush 2 or 3 times to empty toilet bowl


hello, this is a standard toilet you will need to inspect the flapper that is the rubber flap that holds the water up in the tank it works when you pull the lever it pulls the chain upward and lets the water flow if this flapper is old it may not stay up long enough for the water to flow. open the tank top and flush the toilet see if this flapper is staying up long enough and giving the tank enough time to empty if not change this rubber flapper its inexpensive part.
if this is not the reason then you need to adjust your water filler valve there should be a small screw on top of the pivoting float arm
if you have to adjust it for the water limit line inside the tank this will be the proper amount of water needed to flush once completely

also check that the chain lenth on the pull lever is not pulling the flapper down quicker than its supposed to,

try this let me know your results
hope it helps
