SOURCE: casset toilet will not pump water for flush

Open door, remove toilet cassette unit, look in under flush water tank, observe a short metal blade that actuates a safety switch. This is between two plastic guides. Now look just outside the right hand guide. There you will find the fuse which is a standard blade type. Just pull it down to remove from holder. You will probably find it rated at 3 amp. If it is blown you will probably have to replace pump. Looks difficult but is actually dead easy. Instructions come with replacement Thetford pump. Only problem you may have is a perished sealing ring on the paper holder cup which is no longer available as a spare. Just use a good quality outdoor type sealant as a replacement. Be sure to recover any bits of broken ring from the flush water tank as these can be drawn into your replacement pump and cause it to sieze. At minimum this will cause you to say bother! Happy repairing.

How can I adjust the waterflow to a lower setting to make it 1.2 gallon flush from a 1989 3.5 gallon flush??


Keep in mind that if you limit the amount of water too much, the 3.5 gallon toilet will not flush properly.

This looks like an old Kohler Rialto toilet. The proper way to adjust the water level is to tighten down on the adjustment screw located on the very top of the fill valve. The fill valve is the the piece that the float ball screws into on the left side of the tank.
Tighten the screw down and flush the toilet. Wait for it to refill, and check the level. If you need less water, tighten again, let fill and check level.
There are also two old school methods to save water in your toilet. One is to put one or two bricks into your toilet tank. This reduces the amount of water that fills the tank. The second method is if the fill valve has a float ball on a metal rod, you can bend this rod down into the water. This makes the fill valve shut sooner. Don't bend too far or too fast because the chlorine in the water weakens the brass rod that the float ball attaches to.

Jacuzzi toilet


After flush the system must close the hole which lets water into the toilet. If it does not close after flush, it is continuously letting the water thru. Check if it closes after flush and allows tank to fill.

The water level in my Toto Drake toilet bowl is normal right after a flush, but often is very low a few hours later.


The bowl is cracked and is leaking down the drain. You will have to replace it. It may have cracked if the bowl hold-down bolts were overtightened, or the bowl was not able to sit flush (pardon the pun) on the floor. If the bowl rocks when it is first installed, instead of tightening the hold-down bolts, use a couple of tapered shims under the edge of it, then caulk to fill the gap and hide the shims.
Good luck.

Yes my toilets runs for a couple of seconds every hour or so after the initially flush so whats the problem


One of two things are going on here and it could be a combination of bough. The fill valve is not completely turning off or most likely the flush valve flapper has or is going bad and needs to be replaced. I'm betting on the flapper being the problem.


These video well help.

The toilet takes a long time to refill after a flush would there be a certain part that is plugged or wore out ?


Is the flapper valve slow to return to the closed postion allowing water to flow through the flush valve? Make sure the toilet flapper is moving freely and is sealing properly against the flush valve. If there is no lengthy or continual water flow in to the toilet bowl then this is not the problem.

Is the water valve on the water fill line to the toilet tank fully open? This may seem silly but it could be this simple.

Check to make sure your fill valve is opening fully. If you have an older toilet there may be some deposits that need to be cleaned way to allow free movement.

If toilet does eventually fill to the desired level, there is no leakage, water valve on fill line is fully open and fill valve is opening fully then recommend you shut off water supply, drain toilet and disconnect water fill line from the water valuve and toilet tanke to make sure there is not a blockage. If the water line and connections are clear you may need to remove the fill pipe in the tank and check for blockage. If this is very old, conisdering the cost and effort, it may be simpler to replace at this time rather than trying to extend the life.

When I flush the tank only half empties and not enough flushing action is the result as well as the bowl does not adequately fill after the flush.


Hi, if you remove the cistern lid and flush the toilet, look at the float (back left) to see if this is rising freely when the water fills back up. Once the water has stopped filling, check the fill level lines on the large syphon in the middle of cistern. Your model of toilet has an eco flush which will be lowest line to save water, so not as much water will flush out. There is a long plastic screw on the float (back left) which you can turn to adjust the water level to the higher line on syphon (1.6 gallon flush) and turn it slowley till the water level reaches that mark. flush a couple of times to see it is filling back up to the set amount.

My Bemis Vitra A toilet does not completely flush. I ran a snake down the drain pipe, and this seems to be clear. I think the flap on the toilet may be closing prematurely. Do you have any suggestions?...


I don't know what you have tried yet, so I will start at the beginning. First, I would make sure that you have the proper amount of water filling the tank. If you do not have enough water in the tank, it will not flush the bowl properly. Next, ensure that when the flush handle is tripped it fully lifts the plunger to a close to vertical position. This can be adjusted with your chain. If it is only rising a small amount, this will cause an improper flush. Lastly, if those things seem good, check the actual plunger (aka flapper) to ensure that it is in good condition, and that it does not fill with water. Hope this helps.

Hello,

Your macerator has likely failed, unfortunately. There is a fellow Mobile RV tech (RV Medic) in Springfield, I am pretty sure he services Branson as well. Perhaps they will be able to get you fixed up.
