Filler valve won't shut off. How do I fix it?


replace ballcock assy. Its cheap and can be done with hand tools. Drain bowl, remove supply line, unscrew old ballcock nut and pull out, reverse to assemble. The conical supply washer needs to go onto supply line tip first , then up into ballcock or itll leak.

Eljer Windsor One Piece Toilet help - leaks water into bowl


I would go back with the ballcock kind. However, the flapper will need to be replaced. It is not seating properly. The fluid master is a revised version and a bit more efficient. It should work well also. They both work off buoyancy and shuts off water the same way.

I installed a new ballcock assy and float. the toilet fills and shuts off but i can still hear an intermittant water flow. there were no instructions with the new valve so i dont know how to adjust.this is...


Without knowing what type of ballcock assembly you used I can't tell you how to adjust it. However there is one easy thing that you can check. If you have a plastic line going from the ballcock to fill/overflow in tank make sure that the bottom of that line is not below the water in the tank or it can create a siphon and make the water to run a small amount nostop. Hope this helps you. Have a good day and thank you.

Galaxy fridge-water leaking under unit.no shutoff in house.water turned off at street.where/how do i proceed to locate problem?


Hi,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com


Check the hose under your fridge that drains condensation and such into a catch tray. Make sure the hose is draining properly.

Blow air through the tube to make sure it is not clogged. A coat hanger wire can be inserted to break up clogs. An alternative method is to use a bicycle pump to force air through the drain hole to remove any obstruction. Vacuum dust bunnies from under the fridge to allow free flow of the air. Most refrigerators periodically blow warm air across the condensation tray. The warm air dries the condensation in the tray.

Clogs are usually caused when dust, moisture and micro-organisms get together in the drain tube. Keep the dust vacuumed from the back and bottom of the fridge. Make sure the drain tube is firmly connected at all points. The drain tube can be flushed with chlorine bleach, rubbing alcohol or other anti-bacterial product. Product selection should be consistent with the tubing material.

I have searched some important instruction through net from a valuable soursse…it might be of your help…
Analyzing the likely source
Instructions
STEP 1: Move the refrigerator out from the wall and look for the location of the leak. STEP 2: Check the side panels and the seals around the door for beads of "sweat." This could indicate a condensation problem. STEP 3: Check the floor. A puddle there could indicate a missing or cracked drip pan, or a leak in the water line that feeds your ice maker. STEP 4: Check for water seeping from the front of the freezer or the refrigerator. This could indicate your defrost drain is plugged or your ice maker is leaking. Fixing a condensation problem
Instructions
STEP 1: Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely. STEP 2: Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets (see How to Fix a Refrigerator That Cools Poorly). STEP 3: If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls. Fixing a drip-pan problem
Instructions
STEP 1: Pull off the grill that runs along the bottom of your refrigerator. STEP 2: Locate the drip pan, using a flashlight if necessary. The pan should be sitting on top of a set of black condenser coils and directly below a drain tube that carries water from your freezer when it is in defrost mode. STEP 3: Place the drip pan in your sink and fill it with water to test for leaks. If it leaks, order a replacement from your appliance dealer. STEP 4: If the drip pan doesn't leak, clean it with warm, soapy water, then reinstall the pan and the refrigerator grill. Fixing a clogged defrost drain
Instructions
STEP 1: Locate the defrost drain. It should be a round hole or a channel running under the vegetable and fruit bins in the refrigerator or along the floor of the freezer compartment. STEP 2: Inspect the drain for clogs and remove any debris. If necessary, use a small screwdriver to break up debris that's trapped in the drain hole. STEP 3: Fill a meat baster with hot water and force it through the drain to make sure the clog is gone. If the drain is operating properly, the hot water will fill the drip pan. Fixing a leaky ice maker
Instructions
STEP 1: Pull the refrigerator away from the wall and locate the copper water-supply line. It runs from the house water line to the refrigerator water-supply valve. (To get to the supply valve, you may have to use a screwdriver or a nut driver and socket to remove your refrigerator's back access panel.) STEP 2: Inspect the copper supply line, the supply valve, and the plastic supply tube that runs from the other side of the supply valve to the back of the ice maker. STEP 3: If a connection is leaking, tighten it with an adjustable wrench. If either the copper supply line or the plastic supply tube is leaking, you need to replace it. STEP 4: Turn off the water supply. The valve may be under the kitchen sink or connected to a cold-water pipe in your basement. STEP 5: Remove the faulty line and take it to a hardware store to get an exact replacement. STEP 6: Install the new line, tighten the connections with the adjustable wrench and turn the water back on.

Tips & Warnings
To keep door gaskets clean and supple, wash them twice a year with warm, soapy water, then coat them with a light film of petroleum jelly.
Some refrigerators have an internal defrost drain that is meant to be serviced by a professional. If you can't find your drain, call a pro.
To prevent possible electrical shock, always unplug your refrigerator before working on it.
Put carpet scraps or another soft material under the front legs before pulling your refrigerator away from the wall. Otherwise, the legs could damage the flooring.
