How do I get the water to stop filling the tank on my toto ST794S toilet?


there should be a screw adjustment on the ballcock or fill assembly...screw that down some to adjust...that regulates your tank water level....that screw goes in or out to adjust...one or other should do the trick...may have to do this a few times to get proper adjustment...good luck..

Tip

How to fix a refill valve


  • Brass-style toilet refill valves can often be repaired. To take a valve apart, remove the lever's screws. This allows you to lift out the float arm and valve plunger. Check the flat rubber washer on the end of the plunger. If it's worn, you can pull it out with pliers and either turn it around or replace it. This procedure usually corrects an overfilling problem. Next, reassemble the valve. If the tank continues to overfill, check to make sure the operating lever at the end of the float arm is functioning properly.

  • New refill valve. To replace the entire refill valve assembly, first turn off the water supply. The tank should then be flushed and sponged out, as detailed previously. Remove the inlet nut and riser tube from the bottom of the refill valve beneath the tank. Hold the refill valve inside the tank with a padded locking plier/wrench to keep it from turning, and remove the nut beneath the tank. With the nut off, the refill valve assembly can be lifted out and a new one inserted in its place. Follow the exact instructions included with the unit you purchase.

  • Finally, reconnect the riser tube and turn the water on. The tank should fill, allowing you to adjust the water level according to the instructions that were included with the valve.

  • Anti-siphon valves. The best refill valves offer anti-siphon protection. In fact, this may be a requirement. This protection prevents back siphonage of toilet tank water into your home's potable water supply system if a vacuum occurs in the toilet's water supply system. Whether or not this is a code requirement, the anti-siphon valve is a good idea to protect your family and public health.

Once the water is shut off the pump keeps running


the pump is controlled by the storage tanks pressure switch , if it continues to run well after the pressure tank has refilled with water , either the switches manual override has been activated (lever) or its defective or blocked off with mud

Water keeps running, toilet not shutting off totally, tank will fill then we have to pull up float and hold it a while to stop water, doesn't overflow, just keeps running, doesn't shut off...


Hi snowjobs847...
Try resetting your float level to a lower water level in the tank, the extra pressure put on the seal may make it reseal.
If the above did not work:
You need to replace your "ballcock"...the ballcock (inlet valve) is non-repairable, has to be replaced with a new one if you cannot get it to stop leaking.

What do I do to stop water from leaking from the tank, it refills itself several times, day or night? The toilet looks like a Sedona, although the shape of the tank differs a bit, the width is the same,...


Sounds like something in the floating device is bad so it doesn't shut off when filled. We just replaced our flush valve on ours because the toilet keep running.

Hello! I have a 33201 Hunter Humidifier and for some reason does not run. It turns on (light comes on) and I can hear a faint hum if I put my ear to the unit... but again it does not come on. It does...


Hi, Mark! It may be clogged with a calcium scale build up from the tap water you use. Unplug the unit and empty any water that is the tank.Mix a 50/50 solution of White Distilled Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Mix enough to fill the tank. Let it soak for 2 to 3 hours and turn the unit ON. If it starts functioning as it should, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty. If it doesn't operate as it should, allow it to soak overnight. And try again, following the procedure above. After it has run to the 3/4 empty point, turn the unit OFF. unplug it and dump the remaining solution. Refill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run again, for at least 2 hours. This with flush the system of the vinegar and water solution.

To avoid having this problem again, always use Bottled Distilled Water, rather than tap water.

Hope this helps to solve the problem. Have a Happy Easter!

Water softner problem, does not refill water to brine tank


There is .25 gpm flow restrictor in the top of the float assembly, It may have sediment in it. Unscrew the cap on float top and check the restrictor. When you hook it back up run the system to refill (last cycle) hold the float stem down until all the air is purged from float assembly and see if that works. Also the float ball (foam) may have slipped top too far and is shutting off prematurely. If this does not work it is in the valve which has small pistons, diaphrams and springs to control the cycles. Each cycle also has a solenoid which makes these components work. You will not find a service manual for the Mark 50 valves. They are obsolete unfortunately and parts are no longer available. This valve was made for nearly 40 years and was the hallmark of the Culligan line.

The toilet refill seems to keep running, but there's no flooding just refilling.


Hi,
Open the back tank cover and check the "flapper" it is the black thing that the chain pulls up on to let the water out of the tank. If it does not go all the way down tight then the water will just keep running through the toilet and out the drain.
Sometimes it will crack and then not seal, someimes it gets brittle and the edges roll up so it isn't flat and the water runs through.
The chain can also catch or tangle and bcome too short holding the flapper up.
If all else fails there should be a valve on the bottom left side at the fill ppe. Turn that off till you can get it repaired.
I hope this helps youout to get your problem solved.

Thanks for using Fixya!!

The coffee maker will not work. It keeps saying


As others have said...just keep reseating the water tank, 20-30 times may be necessary. You will see air bubble come up and until you stop seeing bubbles, keep dropping the tank into place. Eventually it will start to **** water from the tank filling the brewer with about 20oz of water. Wait a couple minutes for the water to heat and it will indicate ready and just select brew cup size. This will work. We just had the same problem today with our first breville coffee brewer and now it works great.
