Question about Kohler Home

1 Answer

I have a new Kohler toilet. Sometimes after flushing the handle stays down and the closet does not refill because the flapper is in the up position. I thought it was an air pressure problem because when I lift the tank cover, the handle releases and the flapper shuts close. No hardware is being pinched or restricted by the tank lid. If I prop the lid part ways open the handle will not sometimes release. JT

Is there a chance you have an air pocket in the flapper itself... try replacing flapper with a solid black rubber one.... they have more weight to them maybe the lever on the out side of the tank is getting caught up on the bottom of the lid

Flushing problems


Tank needs more water and the flapper has to stay open longer by adjusting chain so the flapper goes up higher when you flush the unit. Practice and you will get it right.

I replaced the flapper in my kohler model 703 toilet. when i flush the handle stays in the up position and the flapper does not go down


If you installed the flapper using the ring. Remove it. If it is a rubber ring then cut the ring out and use the hinges on the sides to install. Other than that make sure your flapper chain is straight and not twisted and also that the chain is giving the flapper a reasonable slack. Hope this helps!

Toilet not refilling water


A couple of thing's to check the fill tube in the tank is it connected from the fill valve to over flow. This fill's th ebowl up with the required amount of water.
Next is the water filling to the line on the fill tube with in 5/8 " from top of tube. Adjust the float to get it with in the fill amount required.

The chain on the flapper need's some slack, you just have to move it a little till it get's adjusted right. Water level low in the tank will affect the flapper also.

I hope this will be of some help for you.

The flush valve does stay open long enough after flushing


Which style of flush valve do you have? If it is the dual-flush option (solids/liquids) I do not know how to adjust those. If you have a traditional style, then the flapper or ball is closing too soon. You need to adjust the guide arm (flush ball) higher or shorten the chain between the flapper and the handle. Adjust this carefully or you will have it fail to seat and the toilet will constantly run.

I hope this helps.

Toilet keeps running even when manually lifting floater to max


check handle to ensure no tension is on the flapper chain when not being flushed. check flapper to ensure positive seal to flush valve. check water level to ensure not overflowing into flow valve. if that's the case, lower water height.

then if still doesn't work, change flapper,

all else fails, change flush valve.
good luck,
steve
