Try holding the handle down until the tank empties completely. If the tank leaks into the bowl during or after refill, the flapper is defective and not sealing correctly.

Have brand new 3489 cimmaron 1 piece toilet. tank empties on flush but no suction empty on bowl. water only eventually leaves bowl

It may be the wax ring expanded and is restricting the flow.
If you did not install the unit FYI ..the wax ring is inserted between the toilet and the waste pipe to prevent leakage. Sometimes it moves out of place when the toilet gets installed and blocks the flow

Place a few drops of food coloring in the tank of the toilet, if it is leaking you will see the color seep into the toilet bowl within a short period of time. If you see the food color in the toilet bowl you will need to replace the flapper.

Toilet fill runs periodically works well but wastes water

Sounds like your flapper is leaking causing the water in the tank to lower until it triggers the fill valve. Replace the flapper (they're cheap and wear out easily).

I have a Kohler commode about 1 1/2 yrs old. When filling, it continues to fill with water going to the overflow pipe.

Does it have bll **** on it?That means a long brass rod with a ball on the end.If it does then gap it with both hands and with the hand next to the ball push down a little ways and keep doing this until the water stops running.If you have a fluidmaster brown or black the little wire on the side of you will see a little metal piece squeezed it and down and the should stop.

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.

Replace the flapper. It seem to have been damaged. It that does not cure the problem by itself you may have to replace the flapper seat also.
