Hi,
The round thing in the center that the metal rod pushes down on can be turned...turning it counterclockwise will make it higher and get you flushing...
It may take a bit but you can get it adjusted so that it will flush everytime..

Ignition trouble shoot


Hey Ron,
AN internal combustion engine requires three (3) things to run...assuming the internals are good.
1. Adequate compression >120PSI
2. A properly timed spark
3. A proper fuel/air ratio

Start with one, and eliminate one at a time(make sure it works) - ..(this is the way a professional would trouble shoot an engine).

How to fix a flush valve


  • Most toilet tank troubles can be traced to a faulty flush valve. You have three choices in correcting this common problem: (1) repair the old flush valve; (2) replace the flush ball with a more modern flapper or install a glued-in replacement flapper; (3) or install a new flush valve.

  • These repairs require a varying amount of work. The more simple adjustments were discussed previously.

  • Examine the old flush ball or flapper. If it is aged or encrusted with deposits, replace it with a new one. Scale deposits on the seat can be removed with steel wool or with No. 500 wet-or-dry abrasive paper. But if the valve still leaks, it must be replaced.

  • You can install a new guide arm, if necessary. To remove the lift wire from a flush ball, turn it counterclockwise with pliers. If you are replacing all parts, simply cut off the old lift wire.

  • Flapper. To replace a flapper, disconnect the lift hardware from the trip arm and slide the flapper up and off the overflow pipe. Install the new unit, reversing directions, and connect the lift hardware back to the trip arm. Any excess lift chain can be cut off or left dangling, if it doesn't interfere with toilet operation.

  • A loose trip handle can be fixed by tightening. The nut has left-hand threads, and must be turned counterclockwise to tighten (looking from inside the tank). Or, you can install a replacement trip handle.

  • Glue-in repair kit. Many replacement flush valves simply glue in place on top of the old valve seat. While several brands are available, not every type of flush can be replaced by these devices.

  • On single-piece toilet tanks–with a flush valve held in place with flanges that fit inside the opening–the flapper-ball may bind and prevent a leak-proof seal. On more common two-piece toilets, this problem does not occur.

  • Using a glue-in repair kit is quick and easy, but you must follow the manufacturer's instructions. To be sure you purchase the right kind of repair kit, take a rough drawing of the bottom of your toilet tank and flush valve to your hardware or home center store.

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.

Check to make sure the chain fromanagement the trip lever to the flapper does not have too much slack in it if there is shorten the chain so when the lever is down there is just a little slack in the chain. Hope this helps

My machine skips stitches, and the thread wears at the needle, causing it to snarl and break. I've looked in the manual and tried everything they suggest.


This sounds like the thread is not in your take up lever, are you sure that it is threaded correctly? Maybe it is wrapping around one of the eyelets or the take up lever rather than just going through the eyelet. The fact that the thread is wearing at the needle is indicative that the thread is too tight when the needle goes downwards. Is your top tension set too high perhaps. The skipping stitches part is normally indicative of either a blunt needle, using a sharp needle on knit fabric, or the timing is out slightly.
You should be able to trouble shoot the first two options. For the timing, will it sew a zig zag stitch at all? If timing is out or you've tried all the other trouble shooting; I'd suggest a trip to the serviceman.

After the tolet is flushed it will make a hissing nose for along time.What can I do to cure this?


It might be the issue with the valve from where the water gets in the tank, get the washers replaced, or you might want to open it and clean it a little.
