My Kohler K4493-AA occasionally produces a high-pitched whine like a smoke alarm. Flushing stops it, but then the sound comes back later. Any ideas?


Typically it's one of two things. Either there is debris (Sand, gravel or hard water deposits) under the seal diaphragm inside the fill valve or the diaphragm has deteriorated. Shut off the water to the tank, take the cap off of the fill valve and remove the diaphragm. If the diaphragm has deteriorated, replace it Kohler #83143. Otherwise, rinse it off, turn the water on just a bit to let it bubble over the top of the fill valve and rinse out any debris. Then with the water trickling, put the diaphragm back in and replace the top assembly. When all is secure, turn the water back on to full.

Have a fluid master valve--I believe it is a 883B--fills the toilet and appears to shut off but very slowly keeps filling. Never actually shuts off completely..Please Help!!


there are only 2 possibilities; 1 the tank seal is leaking into the bowl and the input valve runs to replace the water lost, or 2, the water inlet valve does not shut off totally and the water continues to flow into the bowl via the overflow tube in the tank.
If the water is running into the overflow tube, adjust / replace the input valve, if the water is not going into the overflow valve, clean / replace the flapper valve at the bottom of the tank.
Please let me know how you make out.

My toilet keeps running. I tried to adjust the float with a phillips but that did not work. There is slight leaking into the chamber over the top.


If there is a continual leak in to the toilet bowl you will likely need to replace the flush valve or the toilet flapper.

As a first step try try cleaning the sealing surface of the flush valve to se if the flapper will seat and make a seal.

If this does not work and the flapper is visibly detioriated and breaking down shut off the water supply, remove the toilet flapper and visit your local plumbing supply store to purchase a suitable replacement. Install the new flapper, turn on water supply.

These illustrated instruictions may also assist:

Although less likely, if the sealing surface of the flush valve is damaged or detioriated proceed with replacement of the flush valve. Again turn off water supply and follow the instructions set out here:

http://www.danco.com/HowTo/How-To-Replace-a-Flush-Valve

If there is not a leak in to the toilet bowl and the water flow does not shut off completely, then water is flowing through the fill valve and the overflow pipe and you may need to adjust the float and float rod to allow clsoure of the fill valve. See here:

Toilet runs slightly, can minimally depress the handle to release a bit of water, and it will stop. How to fix?


Toilet runs continuously or doesn't flush adequately

Jiggling the handle might work for a while, but if your toilet is always running or doesn't flush adequately, you need to perform these simple fixes that usually can tame a noisy, inefficient toilet.

Check the Chain

The chain attached to the rubber flapper often becomes loose, causing incomplete flushing and/or continuous running. To fix it, remove links from the chain using needle-nosed pliers until it's tight.

Check Water Level

Improper water levels can also cause problems with your toilet. This can be fixed by adjusting the ball ****, which is located next to the overflow pipe, the open tube to the right of the handle. Adjust the ball **** so the water comes to ½ " below the overflow pipe.

Clean the Surface of the Flush Valve

A continuously running toilet can also be the result of a faulty flush valve. Because the valve is made of rubber, it can decompose or warp allowing water to escape from the tank into the bowl. Clean the sealing surface to see if this will improve the seal. If too decomposed or warped the valve may need to be replaced.

Replace the Flapper

Remove old flapper and replace with a suitable replacement. Attach the flapper to the overflow pipe inside the bowl. Then attach the lever chain from the flapper to the handle lever making sure the chain is taut.

I just installed a Kholer Rialto toilet and the water doesn't shut off, it keeps running even though the tank fills with water.


My toilet is running, how do I fix it? To solve this problem, you'll want to ask the following questions:
  1. Is water running into the overflow tube? If so, lower/adjust the float valve. By doing this it will float higher closing the inlet valve.
  2. Is the chain too slack or too tight? Make sure the chain has only 1-2 beads of slack.
  3. Has the water in the home or surrounding area been recently shut off for some reason? This could cause debris to come up through the water pipes and settle into the diaphragm seal of the fill valve. Flush out the diaphragm seal.
This is not an unusal problem; here is a video that may provide more assistance:

On my eljer toilet, I get continuous running of the water. If I shut valve off and pump the tank, the running stops (but only for a week or so). Suggestions? model 150-403 power flush pf/2


I don't know what you mean by "pumping" the tank. If the toilet runs, then either the fill valve is defective or the seal on the flush valve is defective. First, check to see that when you move the float, the toilet stops running. If it does not, then replace the fill valve. If it does, then inspect/replace the seal on the flush mechanism at the bottom of the tank. If this seal is bad, you can usually see water continuously flowing (slowly) into the bowl. You will see ripples on the surface of the water in the bowl.

The gmax continues to run and won/t stop


if it worked fine and now it has stopped....then there is no adjustment that will fix it. If the fill valve is not shutting off you either need to replace the seal in the valve or get a new fill valve. If the water is leaking past the flapper you will need a new flapper.

Water drips into overflow valve after flushing


The purpose of the "Overflow" tube is to fill the toilet bowl. It should drip for a while. If it is continuously dripping there could be dirt or deposits on the ball **** valve. Shut off the water and dissasemble to see if there is deposits or perhaps a torn diaphragm.

Toto toilet Power Gravity intermittently running


I suggest that you replace the cap with the new seal, it sounds as tho the valve is not shutting off and the bowl fill tube continues to run. Have you adjusted the water level to 3/4 of an inch below the overflow tube. If not, try that.
