Replace the top cap of your fill valve, or just the fluidmaster seal disc. Here is a link to the Fluidmaster fill-valve Instructions.

Is the water flowing into the overflow? If so adjust the water level. Have you checked the shut off seal inside fluidmaster? If you just installed could've jogged some sediment lose in the line and plugged the seal if older could have a bad seal.

After my toilet fill valve shuts off, water continues sipping into tank slowly. This causes water continuously overflow through overflow tube.


check that the fill valve was installed correctly
adjust the float level so that when full the cistern water level is around 1/2" below the over flow pipe end
what you have now is that the inlet water is not being shut off correctly and the water is still coming in and flowing out of the overflow

Roca dual push button Toilet will only flush when holding the push button continuously down until the cistern is empty. It won't completely flush like it should when pressing the button once.


allow tank to fill a little more by adjusting fill valve. When there's not enough water flowing from tank the stopper can over-power the water flow and cause the flush to stop by re-sealing.

Thor ace 29.2 fresh water won't fill


check for blockage in relief valve next to potable water fill. it has a little screen that allows air to flow out as water is going in..also if you are using pressurized side check the bypass valve by water tank.

Sounds like the water tank keeps filling


2 possibilities.1. The water level is set higher the the overflow tube. This will cause the water to run into the overflow continuously. You should be able to see this. 2. The large seal - bottom center of the tank - is leaking. This will cause the water level to slowly drop after a fill. The water tank will start to run again after flushing - BUT NOT CONTINUOUSLY. You should see if there is a small amount of water flowing from the rim to the bowl 15 seconds after the water has stopped running after a flush.

When putting gas in my 2004 Kia amanit the fuel nozzle kicks off. How do I locate and fix the problem


HI Bridgette,

Due to the different shapes of fuel tank filler necks in cars & trucks, it may be necessary to vary one or more things to allow fuel to flow uninterrupted until the tank is really full.

The main problem can come from the new "vapor recovery" gasoline pumps. These pumps and hoses actually recover gasoline fumes from your tank as the liquid gasoline displaces the air / fumes in the tank is it is being filled. If gasoline flow is started at full blast, it can splash back slightly, causing liquid to be pulled back by the pump - so it shuts off. So, start with a slow rate of filling and gradually increase flow rate to maximum over 5 to 10 seconds. If it still shuts off, try some of the suggestions below.

First, don't fill at maximum flow rate from the pump - that is, don't set the nozzle for wide open. Select one of the other "latches" on the handle instead of the fastest flow and let the tank fill entirely at this rate.

Second, you should experiment a bit with the length of nozzle that you push into the tank's filler neck. If you push it in too far or too little, the pump nozzle can do what you're describing.

Third, try twisting the nozzle slightly so that it doesn't hang straight downward - a little to the left or right may provide a solution.

Lastly, try a different gas station. Their pumps may not be so picky with your tank's filler neck.

Good luck!

A stink bug climbed in the water chamber and we can't get it out. is there a solution?


Slowly fill the water tank with water. The stink bug should rise to the surface. Continue filling slowly and the flow of the water out of the fill hole should force the stink bug out! Remember as you're filling you must use something that will NOT block the fill hole or the water cannot drain and your "little friend" won't be able to be flushed out by the flow of the water.
I hope this helps!

Water flow problem


2 things it could be. Bad flapper seating or back siphon.
1) visually check the flapper. Is it worn, cracked, or not fully seating because the chain might be too long and preventing a good seating?
2) IF the flapper is good without anything blocking it open there, then you have back siphon. Make sure the small hose that goes from the fill valve into the over flow tube has an high arch. If the arch is too low, after the water is cut off the gravity will back siphon water out of the tank.

After flushing, water fills up tank and continues


Your problem is the water fill valve. Check this link.http://www.rd.com/17646/article17646.html

After the tank fills water contiues to flow thru


The fill valve needs replacement unless you can take the top off snd find out what is keeping it from closing. I had one I took apart for the same reason and found a piece of plastic in the valve seat. Good Luck, Ned
