Virtually all flush handles are secured by a white or black plastic nut on the inside of the tank at the point where the lever comes through the tank wall. It is loostened by turning it clockwise instead of counterclockwise.

Keeps on pumping out water from the bowl even when there is no water in the bowl


follow this steps and fix it.
Adjust or replace a flush handle:
  1. Remove the cover from the toilet tank (the higher part at the back of the toilet). If the handle is loose, tighten the locknut with a wrench. If the nut won't budge, apply penetrating oil and let it set before removing.
  2. Unhook the chain from the trip lever and slide the trip lever, with the handle attached, through the hole in the tank.
  3. Soak the handle threads in vinegar for an hour or so to remove mineral deposits, then scrub clean with an old toothbrush.
  4. Reinstall the assembly, tighten the locknut and adjust the lift chain (see below).
Adjust the lift chain:
  1. If the handle must be held down while the toilet is flushing, the chain may be too long. Shorten it by hooking the upper end through a different trip lever, or use long-nose pliers to open and remove some chain links. Alternately, replace the chain with a new one.
  2. Some flush assemblies have a lift wire instead of a chain. If the wire binds against its guide, flushing is impaired. Loosen the guide with a screwdriver, then adjust it so that the flush valve falls freely onto its seat.

How do i use cleaning powder


Hi Dont use the cleaning powder yet. Remove the group head shower and clean it with steel wool, then clean the group head where the shower sits with sfeel wool. Remove the filter fron the group handle and clean the under side. Also clean the group handle before you put the filter back in. You shouldn't use powder in these machines, but if you do, you need to put a blind filter (filter with no holes in it)in the group handle. If you dont have a blind filter, you can use foil to cover your filter. When you have done that, you need to add a 1/4 teaspoon of powder into the foil covered basket and lock the handle in the group head. Switch the coffee button on for a few seconds then off again.Domt take handle out yet. Repeat this on/off proceedure 5 or 6 times. Now remove the handle and flush out any powder that is left. Leaving the foil in place, lock the handle back into the group head and repeat the above proceedure. This fushes out any powder residue. Make a coffee and discard. Now your machine has bee back flushed. Again, i do not recomend using powder in these machines. The poder can back flow into the boiler. Just make sure you give it a good flush. If you clean your group head and shower weekly, you'll never need to use powder. Dazza COFFEE MACHINE TECHNICIAN

When I flush the toilet the handle stays down and therefore the toilet runs on. How can I fix it?


If you lift the lid you should see where the handle goes through the porcelin. You can remove the handle by unscrewing the nut inside the tank. Try cleaning the inside of the nut as sometimes water deposits collect in this area and cause binding on the handle shaft. After you clean it up you can apply a very small amount of petrolium jelly to the handle shaft when you reinstall it, this should prevent the problem from happening again.

It will not flush properly .rudy


How to Troubleshoot a Flushometer

A flushometer consists of a metal pipe extending from the back of a toilet with a slender handle on the side that is used to flush a toilet. This type of flush valve is commonly used for toilets in commercial facilities to provide a durable and accurate flush delivery system. If the flushometer does not work properly, troubleshoot it and perform minor repairs. Common issues are often resolved quickly. If troubleshooting does not correct the problem, call a plumber for repairs.

Does Not Flush

1 Inspect the handle assembly. A broken handle or assembly will prevent flushing. If damaged, unscrew and remove the handle assembly. Replace the handle or repair it with a handle repair kit

2 Open the main water supply valve to turn the water on fully. The water supply is normally turned on, but check to make sure it is turned on fully and has not been turned off inadvertently

3 Remove the flushometer's CP cover, the round cap on the very top of the pipe extending from the toilet. Then remove the inside cover directly underneath the cap. Inspect the relief valve. Replace it if it is visibly damaged.


Short Flush

1 Remove the CP cover and inside cover. The CP cover is located on the very top of the pipe extending from the back of the toilet. The inside cover is underneath the CP cover and the diaphragm assembly is located beneath the inside cover. Remove and inspect the diaphragm assembly. A damaged diaphragm assembly can cause a short and incomplete flush. Replace it if it is visibly damaged.

2 Replace or repair the handle assembly. A damaged handle can result in a short flush. If damaged, unscrew and remove the handle assembly. Replace the handle or repair it using a handle repair kit.

3 Remove the CP cover and inside cover to remove the diaphragm assembly. If a low consumption diaphragm is installed on a water-saver fixture or a urinal diaphragm is installed on a toilet fixture, replace it with an appropriate diaphragm.

Toto toilet CT774S. The metal flush handle has fallen completely out of the tank. It's easy enough to slide it back in and push the metal rod into it inside the tank, but it isn't held securely in any way...


It appears that you are missing the nut that goes inside the tank. Look around inside the tank for it. If you do not find it, I suggest you take the lever to the nearest home center and try to find a replacement nut, or a cheap handle you can use the nut from. Most flush handle nuts are left-hand (reverse) threaded. I searched the internet for the part number for the flush handle assembly ( THU141#XX) and the price is nearly $70.00. Good Luck

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.

My handle door is broken.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. There are 4 different doors for this microwave see this link:

http://specsserver.com/CACHE/FRJVHRUTDMYQ.PDF

Item 58 is the door handle

Part numbers are:

5304440323 - - - - Handle, door, black

5304440325 - - - - Handle, door, bisque
5304440324 - - - - Handle, door, white
Stainless handle not listed.. I assume it is a black handle

This has to be one of the more expensive microwave door handles I have ever experienced.

The least expensive source I found was at sears parts direct.
5304440324 Handle door white Price $88.80
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/5304440324/0022/628?pathTaken=partSearch&filterPart=&pop=flush

5304440323 Handle door black Price $98.97
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/5304440323/0022/628?pathTaken=partSearch&filterPart=&pop=flush

5304440325 Handle door bisque Price $88.80
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/5304440325/0022/628?pathTaken=partSearch&filterPart=&pop=flush

Note that Item 51 of the first link (top one) is the complete door assy. Also Item 60 is the door HANDLE screws (2 ea)

Just from looking at the diagrams in the first link, it appears item 56
Frame, choke cover, inner door
must be removed to gain access to the handle screws.

I looked up many sources for the handle assembly because I had a hard time believeing the handle was so expensive. Sears was by far the cheapest source.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Can't install new Kohler rialto Flush Value


First things first, remove the fill valve, and the flush handle mechanism. This will give you plenty of room to work with the flush valve. Before installing flush valve lubricate tabs with plumbers grease. Now put on a pair of work gloves, pushed down very hard and turn the tabs should slide easy because of the grease. Remember do not alter the gasket, the gasket needs to be compressed to do its job. I know removing the fill valve and the flush handle seems like a pain, but there is no way to get your hands in the proper position to install the flush valve assembly.

Have to hold down toil handle for 4 secs to flush


Assuming we are talking about a standard flush toilet, it sounds like the internal flush actuator lever is hitting the top of the toilet on the inside. Remove the lid, hold the exterior handle. and carefully bend the lever down a little. Also make sure the lever hasn't slipped or is loose. Put the lid back on try again. Repeat until the toilet flushes with the lid on.
