Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have replaced my toilet inners with the fluidmaster 3 piece set. I have also installed a new handle with arm extension for the chain to connect to. All is fine, but when I flush the toilet the flapper closes immediately and doesn't allow the toilet to empty the way it should.

How to adjust fluidmaster


There should be a small black rubber tubing piece that connects to the fill valve and the other end goes in the overflow tube to refill the bowl after each flush. Make sure this tubing is installed correctly and that should solve the problem. Hope this helps.

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.

Eljer 0220 toilet leaks from tank to bowl, then fill valve spurts out water from top and around the edges, and also through the tube that goes to the overflow. Replaced the flapper, but still leaks. Also...


When the tank is full and leaking into the bowl reach in and put slight pressure on the flapper and if the leak stops then you may have the wrong flapper or the flapper is not installed properly. If that is not the case then make sure the flush valve seat is not cracked or that the surface is not warped.

I have a 1 year old toilet. The water level drops and fills about every 3 hours. What do I need to do to fix? Thanks. specialeight@aol.com


You probably need to replace the flapper valve in toilet tank. This is the valve that sets in the bottom of the tank and is connected to the flush handle that you push to flush toilet. Look at the flapper and try to find one to match it at the hardware store before you try to replace it. To replace most flappers you should shut off water to toilet and remove tank lid, Disconnect chain from flush handle and remove flapper from overflow tube. Install new flapper. Adjust chain so that there is about two links loose when flapper is closed. Before you turn water check seating surface for any rough spots or scale deposits.If there are any then smoot them out with fine sand paper. Turn water back and check for proper operation. Adjust chain length as needed. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

My toilet handel is broke.how ican install


Remove the water cover lid then remove the chain connector at the handle looks like a diaper pin then unscrew the nut holding the handle in place and feed the handle assembly threw the nut and buy new handle assembly and replace. IF it's just the chain is broke replace the chain they are sold separately at any hardware store. IF it's the valve you can replace it as well by shutting off the toilet water valve, next disconnect the hose and go buy a float assembly that is similar. Adjust the new float assembly to be the same length as the old one then install gasket on the float and put in the hole for the float, install second gasket on the float on the outside and then install the nut and install the hose. Before you tighten the nut on the float make sure the float valve lines up with the handle and the float then tighten down hook up new chain and tighten the water hose, tighten the nut on the float and open the water valve. Watch the water level fill up if it looks like it's going to run over you will have to adjust the float so that it does not run into the throat of the toilet.

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.
