Is the fill line in the tank loose? Does it just shoot water into the tank itself? I had this issue until I realized the while fill tube is supposed to be pushed into the black cylinder/small plastic tube in the middle of the stopper assembly. After i pushed the line into the tube, the bowl would always only fill a little bit. Now it fills almost a 3rd of the way up the bowl and doesn't bubble during flushes.

    Rick got it for me too! Thanks for the right answer to this problem!

    Mine did the same thing when it was new. I don't remember if the solution was putting the fill hose so it pours water into the black cylinder (as mentioned in Rick's answer) or if it just improved by itself. After the first few months, I never had this problem again, and I've had this toilet for 8 years

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.

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.

The bowl does not fill up completely with enough water to flush everything down. This problem just started.


Check the float in your tank and watch it and make sure it is not hitting the sides of the tank to not allow it to fill up.

low water in the bowl is only caused by the float being to high! the gurgles is Usually because of air coming back up through the pipe, check your vent pipe that come out the roof. this will help the draining.

Cimmaron one piece elongated doesn't have enough water in BOWL.


Make a small mark with a pencil or marker that can be erased of were your water line is in your bowl. Pour some water from a bucket into the bowl SLOWLY and see if the water line rises or drops back down to your original mark. If it drop back to the original mark, then that is the way the toilet was made. You won't be able to do anything about it. If it rises and stays at a higher level, then you have a problem with the fill tube in the tank. You will need to call a Pro!

Kohler Cimmaron Toilet Flush


You might want to check the flush cylinder, to see if it has water in it. It has to be water free, that way the air in it, lets it go down easier, during fill up.
