Pour some CLR into an empty tank - allow one flush and let it sit for a day then fill tank and flush again. hard mineral deposits are clogging the holes.

Kohler flush problems


If it has a power flush (i.e hole about 1" in size opposite side of flushing direction) that hole gets plugged by minerals from the hard water, when it does the flush will be much weaker. To clean it, use a bent coat hanger and ream out the deposits as far in as you can reach. Then turn off the water supply, flush the toilet, then quickly pour one pail full of water into the toilet to drop the water level to minimum. Get "Lime Away" at H/Depot, pour in 1 cup and let sit overnight to eat the remaining hard water deposits from the bowl and power flush. In morning turn on water flush a few times, should wok good as new. Repeat anytime hole starts to get plugged.

Why wont my have a cimarron k3489 toilet fully flush? the water empties from the tank but the water from the bowl does not go down.


That's an interesting one! Does the flush valve close properly so the tank can refill? Does the float valve allow the tank to refill fully, to near the top of the overflow? That can be adjusted, if it doesn't.

Check fhe flush valve - you may have an obstruction under it. Also check the water port from the bowl side - feel up inside the port for obstructions or buildup of hard water deposits.

WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY afterwards.

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 flushed, not enough water coming from bowl rim holes to wash waste off sides of bowl. Have checked holes around top rim, none are plugged. This has been a problem since purchased one year ago.


Its simple. Check to see if you installed toliet right by removing top of tank and holding handle all the way down. Did it flush from all rim holes? If not, then u will need to get a garden hose with a sprayer to increase pressure and shot high volocity water at rim holes to unblock it. Remember the very front on newer blows do not have holes its a pee shield. Also try doing these other things adjust screw inside tank to make sure the bowl has enough water in it to do a good job. Check the rubber tube going into the hollow pipe and make sure it is going fully inside the plastic pipe that is sticking out of the top of the water in the tank. Also you need to have enough water in tank to allow it to flush good. To increase tank water levels then just unscrew the big plastic ball (or just bend wire to allow more water or bend to allow less water) at top of water in tank. Also increase (max) water pressure at wall to allow it to work at its best. If you have hard water it can cause problems but you say it happened even new, so, you do not have to go in that direction.

I have a weak flushing toilet of this model. Water does not fill tank fast enough to create the weight of water needed to start a flush. I've looked in the tank while lifting the flap and see that as the...


From your description it sounds like the flushing orifices are plugged. The orifices are the little holes around the bowl or the big hole in the throat of some. A simple way to check if this is the problem is to get a bucket with aprox 2.5 gallons of water in it and pour it directly into the bowl and see if it goes right down. If it does, the orifices are plugged. Two of the most common causes of clogged orifices are hard water deposits and bowl cleaner cakes that drop in the tank. In the case of hard water deposits, we usualy acid clean the stool with muratic acid introduced through the flush valve. Be VERY careful when doing this, as the fumes are VERY dangerous and it can discolor colored porcilyn. May want to hire a plumber to do this. As for the cleaning cakes. You can pour some tap hot water through flush valve and dig into hole with wire hanger to remove as much as possible. I hope this helps.

Slow and incomplete flush. material does not go down or some comes back.


Clean out the holes under the rim where the water comes in from the tank. Mineral deposits can clog these. A stiff piece of wire (coat hanger) will work.

Also, if the toilet has the siphon hole at the front part of the bottom of the bowl, this can get clogged with mineral deposits. These deposits can become almost rock-like and can be very difficult to remove. Try using a short screwdriver and break these loose. Water must flow freely from this hole for the toilet to flush properly.

My toilet does not flush properly. It seems to


You might check under the rim of the toilet, there are about 12 little holes that when you flush water comes out to start the most important part of the flush. The swrill, with out it hard to flush. Talk a piece of wire hanger ( I know "NO WIRE HANGERS") and use it to push up into the holes. Hard water deposits sometimes build up there.
