If the fill valve will not turn off. There may be debris at seal. The seal in the top of valve may be damaged.

Shut water off and the top will come off.

How to fix a dripping toilet

if the fluidmaster,itself is leaking, there is a rubber disk in the base of fluidmaster, replace disk. however, i can almost promise you the dripping you hear is from a bad flapper. replace with KORKY brand flapper. buy the basic black one, with no water saving gadgets on will see cheaper black ones, but get the KORKY

Bought a new fludmaster cistern float vallve but it does not turn off water to the cistern. Even after adjusting inlet valve screw klevel

You have to twist the unit before you install it to match the height of the old ballcock. You must have made it too tall and hence the water level has to be centimeters higher than the overflow tube to shut off.

Have fitted new fluidmaster flush valve, has a dual flush button operation but water constantly dripping down bowl so fill valve activates sporadically to maintain water level. how can i stop water...

Flapper not seating properly,either get new flapper or try a old trick i've used shut off water to tank and drain tank then add hot water to tank and let set for a while sometimes that will soften and seat flapper it's worth a try it's free.

After flush tank refills very slowly

Make sure that any valves that you shut to install the fill valve are fully open after the installation.

If that doesn't work, the following is from another fix your stuff site:
Shut off water supply. Lift the rod arm and remove top cap assembly by turning 1/8 turn counterclockwise. Using a straightened coat hanger, carefully clean out the inlet passage of the Valve.

If these don't help, check the model number of your Fluidmaster and include that the next time you write.

I installed a new complete Fluidmaster and filled it up with water but when flushing water comes out under the tank not under the toilet though.

probably needs a "doughnut" tank washer under tank..or try tightening the tank bolt..fluid master comes with a little rubber hose that goes to overflow tube

I recently installed new fluidmaster fill valve. Now when i try and turn valve from wall on, the water flow from valve shuts off before i can get valve all the way on. Even if i turn it on slow it will...

The top of the fill valve should be removed, and then turn the water on at the stop. (wall valve). Be sure to place a bowl, or even your hand over the top of the valve as water will flow out the top. This should free any debris that got into the fill valve when it was installed. You should only need to do this for 2 to 3 seconds to free the blockage. If this does not work, I would conclude that the fill valve is defective. Hope this helps.

I have a 4112.016 American Standard Toilet and even with the floater all the way down the chain the water seems to keep running and going into the bowl.

1.The Flapper Valve isn't seating all the way, and allowing water to seep through. (At end of chain)
2.The Fluidmaster water control unit that is connected to the other end of the chain, isn't shutting off when the lever for it, is all the way in the down position.

Test the FluidMaster unit, by lightly applying pressure in a down motion, to that lever.
(Facing the toilet from the front, the FluidMaster water control unit is in the left corner of the tank. {Not trying to insult your intelligence}
The lever I speak of, is the small arm at the top of the FluidMaster. The Flapper Valve chain connects to this lever)

If it shuts off, you may have some fine sand, or other foreign material in the FluidMaster. [Taking one apart, and checking, then reassembling, is No fun!]

If it doesn't shut off when you apply pressure to that lever, you may have a bad diaphragm in the FluidMaster.
Suggest you replace this unit.

Same problem. water wont shut off.

You need a new fill valve,Get Fluidmaster style.That is if you have the old ball type.

We find toilet flappers the main reason there is septic backups(leaking flappers)
Good luck.
