Serval reasons: (1) noise from handle chain being metal-consider switching to lighter plastic type. (2) The rubber flap which lifts up when handle is pushed down and seals "when handle is let go" to allow water to fill in take maybe worn to the point of needing replacement-Go to any Lowe's/HomeDepot and they will walk you through replacement process of just removing old one and putting ends in place over hooks to install new one. Takes me 1 minute to do. (3) Adjust the water cut-off valve that supplies water to tank so it can feel up rapidly by just turning the value. If value is hard to turn try using some oil or WD-40 on it. Remember that one way opens to allow quicker fill up and better flush and other way just turns water to toilet off. If now of these things work then just give me a yell and I can advise further.

What is wrong with my Mansfiled toilet? After flushing, the pipe make hammering noise. how do i fix this?


I am assuming your pieces are older than 20 years. You have a valve at the inlet that is corroded or corroding. If you turn the water down to about half way, you may see the sound stop. You will need to eventually change this out or just put up with it. What is happening is that the water is clogged and cannot pass thru as easily. Much like clogged arteries. This should be about a 30 minute job to repair .

Slow filling toilet tank


Was taking over two minutes to fill. Problem was with fill valve.
To resolve problem either replace fill valve or remove the flow restriction. Here is how I done it.

Turn off water!!!!
Remove the supply line.
Inside of the fill valve is a rubber piece. It is about 3/4" in diameter by about 1" long. This rubber piece has become distorted after years of use. This has to be removed.
Believe it or not, use a corkscrew and thread it into the rubber piece that is located in the very lower section of the fill valve. You can't see it so you will have to feel. Pull it out.
Re-connect the supply line.
Turn on water.
Check for leaks.
Problem solved.
NOTE>>> This only works for American Standard fill valves.

I have a american standard toilet mode 4112 that keeps running.....any suggestions on how to fix it?


The flapper ball may be contaminated and not sealing or the float level has changed and needs adjustment. You should be able to see if the overflow has water flowing into it continuously.

The overflow pipe should be attached to a small clip that holds it in position over the over flow pipe. If it is loose or attached to the outside it will do what yours is doing.

Did you try calling or emailing the parts dept. at american standard? I am not sure if they just sell the gasket. American standard parts are certainly different from most toilets. I looked on ebay, not much for american standard toilets. Were you able to remove the four screws and get the sealer under the gasket.? I will do some more research for you and try to find parts. take care, andy

Have 4114 toilet when flushed it starts to refillat a slow rate


Check the supply valve, turn it off, unscrew the supply line at the bottom of the tank, making sure you put a bowl underneath, turn it back on pointed at the bowl and see if the pressure is strong. If it is, you have a valve problem inside the tank.
