SOURCE: Toilet will not fill up

Some Toto fill valves have a plastic debris screen located at the inlet connection. Turn off the supply valve and remove the supply connection at the bottom of the tank. Use a mirror to inspect the screen for debris.
I agree w/ Smithbrother, the Fluidmaster fill valves are cheap and work well. The only thing they ever need is an occasional seal for $1.50 and 5 minutes to replace.

You need to replace the flapper and you will need to purchase one specifically for the Kohler toilet. I have the same toilet and tried using a generic flapper and from experiance, it didn't work until I bought the correct one and I'm a plumber! Have a great night.

SOURCE: Toilet won't shut off

Does it leak from the overflow? If so then the washer at the top of the Fluidmaster needs to be replaced. If it is not going over the overflow then you will need to replace the flapper on the flush valve.

SOURCE: Kohler Cimarron elongated comfort height toilet not flushing correctly

low water in the bowl is only caused by the float being to high! the gurgles is Usually because of air coming back up through the pipe, check your vent pipe that come out the roof. this will help the draining.

SOURCE: basement toilet won't flush. water fills the bowl

Check your flapper line to the flush handle. The flapper is in the tank on bottom. There shoiuld be a plastic line to handle or chain. :)

I have a 2yr old Kohler K4634 toilet. After flushing the water level drops about 1 inch in the bowl after the bowl filled. This causes a lower level in the bowl than is recommended. The main issue


check to see if waster continues to run into the bowl after the plunger has returned to stop water flowing. If it is a slow leak then replace the flush washer on the stopper plunger.

the tube that goes from the fill valve to the fill tube may not be installed correctly. the water must be going in the tube and not the tank. also it is a water conserving toilet so it uses less water also it is a comfort height toilet and to make it taller the bowl is extended so the water may seem even more shallow.

I have the Kohler toilet with the top actuator, it flushes fine but won't stop running. If I lift the tank top I'm making the toilet flush again. Can this be fixed or do i have to replace the whole system?


(Problem 1) if you can see the water running in the bowl it's a good chance that the flappers warn. you'll have to look at the angle where the light hits the water. The water will be rippling where the top of the water meets the inside of the bowl edge.

solution 1
1. tank the tank lid off.
2. flush, the rubber thing that comes up and allows the water to go to the bowl is the flapper 3. remove 4. replace that should fix it.

problem 2 it could be the water levels to high.
(solution 2)
1. tank tank lid off.
2. if the waters flowing over the long tube in the center and down then the water level is too high 3. adjust the level either it will have a ball **** or a float in either case a ball **** adjusts by a screw on the fill valve. the float has a either a metal rod w/ a pinch clamp or a plastic long screw type thing. 4. adjust water level . 5. lift the flapper to allow a little water out til fill valve kicks on then release handle til valve stops . 6. just keep re adjusting til you get the water level right there should be a molded in line for the level on the back of the tank.

Hello. Your toilet is leaking through the flush valve. This is a serious issue as it will use a huge amount of water every day. Check to be sure there is not an obstruction in the tank and if you can not find one, call the plumber. J.

BRand new elongated Cimarron shoots water out of bowl durng flush


Is the fill line in the tank loose? Does it just shoot water into the tank itself? I had this issue until I realized the while fill tube is supposed to be pushed into the black cylinder/small plastic tube in the middle of the stopper assembly. After i pushed the line into the tube, the bowl would always only fill a little bit. Now it fills almost a 3rd of the way up the bowl and doesn't bubble during flushes.

Toilet won't stop running


I have a Kohler toilet and Ingenium fill valve 85297-AA. My toilet kept running, the fill valve black cylinder wouldn't pop up and when I added blue food coloring to the tank, the blue color seeped through to the toilet bowl. First I replaced the flapper and that allowed the fill valve piece on the cylinder to pop up correctly and blue dye no longer seeped through to the bowl. I still heard a hissing sound when the toilet tank had filled and no water was going into the overflow tube. I called the tech support number on the Kohler website 1-800-4KOHLER (1-800-456-4537) . Here's what solved the problem: Turn off the water to the toilet.Take off the white cap of the fill valve by pushing it down and turning it counterclockwise as you would open up a childproof pill container. Then unhook the metal hook. Hold a cup upside down (I used a strong plastic cup) over the part of the fill valve that is left in the tank and turn on the water. (You need the cup because otherwise the water will squirt up to the ceiling.) The water will flush out the fill valve. Replace the cap and the hook and flush.
