    Should read, if I hold the float down, in other words the tank needs to have more water to flush adequately!

Usually the float has an adjustment at the end of the line which holds it in place. The adjustment comes in the form of a screw. Adjust the screw outward to give the float more room to come up and this will help get more water into the tank. But do ensure that the float does not get higher than the breathers which are in the tank so the water does not pour out from the sides of the tank.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

You can adjust float by just bending the arm it is attached to so that it rides higher or lower. It may sound crude and simple but this is how the pro's do it :). If need be it can of course also be replaced.
Thanks, let me know!

    You can adjust the amount of water that the float lets in and how much the valve delivers per flush, , had this same issue adjusted mine to deliver about 1/3 more water, there is a foam float on the chain that controls when the tank valve closes, move the float down to get a better flush with more water

    I know this, it is the round float that slides up and down, they are adjustable as i said and the flapper valve is as well, take the top off and look, any ACE hardware store can explain how to adjust these for more flush water. You can also call me at home 925-566-8168

Kohler 4634aa is running and I've already changed the flapper, could it be the valve?


Yes it could be valve just cause you changed the flapper doesnt mean that you stop water from filling in tank the valve that shuts water of can still be running the water will go down the bowl fill tube that is were the black tube goes that connects to the top of white pipe the simple whey to find out is just push down on black float and water will stop add in tank let off black ball and water should stop or just lift up on float arm and water should stop bend float arm if necessary.

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.

My toilet keeps running. I tried to adjust the float with a phillips but that did not work. There is slight leaking into the chamber over the top.


If there is a continual leak in to the toilet bowl you will likely need to replace the flush valve or the toilet flapper.

As a first step try try cleaning the sealing surface of the flush valve to se if the flapper will seat and make a seal.

If this does not work and the flapper is visibly detioriated and breaking down shut off the water supply, remove the toilet flapper and visit your local plumbing supply store to purchase a suitable replacement. Install the new flapper, turn on water supply.

These illustrated instruictions may also assist:

Although less likely, if the sealing surface of the flush valve is damaged or detioriated proceed with replacement of the flush valve. Again turn off water supply and follow the instructions set out here:

http://www.danco.com/HowTo/How-To-Replace-a-Flush-Valve

If there is not a leak in to the toilet bowl and the water flow does not shut off completely, then water is flowing through the fill valve and the overflow pipe and you may need to adjust the float and float rod to allow clsoure of the fill valve. See here:

Just need to know how to adjust the 'arm' of the ballcock to lower the water level in the tank. Do I use the screw at the base of the arm?


Hello...

To adjust the water level, you need to set the height at which the float shuts off the water valve. There are several types of floats. In older toilets, the float hangs at the end of an armature, along a metal or plastic rod. Where that arm connects to the water valve there is usually a screw. Adjusting that screw will change the level at which the water valve shuts off. If there is no screw or it is already at its maximum, you may be able to bend the metal arm, but you should remove it from the valve or risk damaging the fill valve.
In newer toilets the float is often a collar around the fill valve and rides up and down vertically. The float typically has a spring clip connecting it to a metal rod which connects to the valve shut off control. Squeeze the spring clip to slide the float up or down the metal rod.
Manufacturers have several variations on the fill valve mechanism, but they all include a method for adjusting the water level. Close inspection should make it clear how to adjust your particular fill valve.

I hope this helps!

Toilet doesn't turn off after flush


The Kohler Cimarron is one of the most popular and reliable toilets out there. (My Favorite). However, depending on the hardness of the water and if you use cleaner tabs in the tank, these factors can lead to a malfunction.
The first thing you should do is hold the flapper (rubber seal inside the tank that releases the water down to the bowl) down with your hands for a few seconds after a flush and see if the toilet stops running. Sometimes the flapper doesn't seal properly therefore the fill valve keeps working non stop. Stopping the fill while holding the flapper down will confirm that your flapper needs to be changed.
If this doesn't work then try this....
The other common problem with a running toilet is with the fill valve itself. There is an attached float on the fill valve that goes up and down depending on the water level. Once the water level rises, it rises the float, and the float tells the fill valve to stop filling the tank. While the toilet is running (hissing), try raising the float all the way up with your hand and see if it stops. If it stops but not consistently with every attempt, then you will need to change the fill valve. I believe the Fluidmaster 400A is the replacement model.

My toilet makes a high pitched whine after being flushed. Pressing down on the top of the tank mechanism makes it go away but the next time it flushes the whine returns.


I would suspect that the flush valve has a blokage in it that is causing a harmonic distortion to be transmitted thru your cold water piping.. One way you may be able to help this is to slow fill rate down on your flush valve. If your fush valve has a seperate float to shut off water supply to tank when it;s full there should be a adjustement screw onside of valve where float rod goes in. Adjust screw down to raise float and thus slow fill rate of tank, this should help with the noise. Ifyour toilet does not have adjustable float see if you have a valve on incoming water supply. If you do you can try slow down flow thru supply valve and see if that helps, Thanks

Toilet keeps running. Replaced the flapper, improved the condition, but toilet keeps running slightly. Is there somewhere I can make an adjustment to the stack deal?


It's possible there's too much tension on the chain which won't allow the flapper to completely seal and let the tank fill. If this is not the case, the float may be stuck. If the float is sticking you're better off replacting it. If the tank is filling and water is overflowing into the tube, then it's the float.

Hissing sound in tank (fill valve) . fills too level line & keeps then slowly fills too top, floats been adjusted .


Dear Sir,

It appears you need to adjust the float level so that it applys more pressure quickly to completely shut off the water going into the main filler tube. Does the hissing go away when you lift up on the float toward the ceiling? If it does, then you need to what I said above. Turn your float ball out farther, or carefully bend your rod down toward the base of the toilet so that it applies more pressure quickly. This should solve your issue.

Toto toilet Power Gravity intermittently running


You need to either bend the arm that connects tot he float down (if it is the type with the ball float) or adjust the height of the fill valve assembly. THis accomplished by slightly twisting the valve assembly carefully and sliding down a half of an inch or so and then twisting back to lock it in place.

This should fix you up right.
