Question about Mastercool 67471 Evaporative Cooler Air Conditioner

1 Answer

The float valve will remain at the proper adjusted level. It seems flimsy. Can I get a strong brass valve as I had before with my other swamp cooler? I thought everything about Mastercool was quality stuff, but not it is not so for this rather flimsy float valve which cannot hold the water level no matter how carefully it is adjusted.

How can I adjust the waterflow to a lower setting to make it 1.2 gallon flush from a 1989 3.5 gallon flush??


Keep in mind that if you limit the amount of water too much, the 3.5 gallon toilet will not flush properly.

This looks like an old Kohler Rialto toilet. The proper way to adjust the water level is to tighten down on the adjustment screw located on the very top of the fill valve. The fill valve is the the piece that the float ball screws into on the left side of the tank.
Tighten the screw down and flush the toilet. Wait for it to refill, and check the level. If you need less water, tighten again, let fill and check level.
There are also two old school methods to save water in your toilet. One is to put one or two bricks into your toilet tank. This reduces the amount of water that fills the tank. The second method is if the fill valve has a float ball on a metal rod, you can bend this rod down into the water. This makes the fill valve shut sooner. Don't bend too far or too fast because the chlorine in the water weakens the brass rod that the float ball attaches to.

The saniflow is trickling and filling up bowl then flushes itself


You need to adjust the float. Or, you can buy the complete inexpensive float valve assembly at Lowes or Home Depot and can install it in less than 5 minutes. Turn off the water supply, drain the tank, sop up the remaining water in the tank or put a pan under the tank opening for the next step, remove the valve assembly and float and install the new valve assembly with the float included. Turn on the water supply and set the water level adjustment valve to about 1/4 inch below the stand pipe overflow drain. This is done by the float assembly. Turn on the water supply. This completes the change-out.

Toilet running and won't stop.....it keeps running into the little overflow tube


When water goes over into overflow tube then that means 2 things.
The rubber flapper at tank bottom is good and does not need replacement at this point.
That leaves 2 possible problems.
1) The flush valve needs to be adjusted so water turns off sooner.
Flush valve lets water into the tank.
For example if you have a float ball on end of brass rod, just bend the brass rod so the float sits lower in the water.
If you have the 'fluidmaster' then a float rides up and down with water level. There is a metal rod with a metal clip. Squeeze the metal clip and move it downward on the metal rod.
2) If water will not turn off after adjusting flush valve, then replace flush valve.
Local hardware store sells the part and can help with instructions.
You need a crescent wrench or large adjustable pliers.
Plumber can also install the flush valve.

1984 351 windsor holley 4 bbl keeps flooding


Depending upon which bowl design you have on yours, you need to check the float level. There should be a brass sight plug on the right side of each bowl. To adjust, remove one plug, loosen the screw on the top of the bowl and turn the 5/8" nut that surrounds the screw. BE AWARE...when you make this adjustment, fuel will squirt from the screw you loosened, so you need to have a rag nearby to keep everything dry. Fuel will also spill from the sight plug hole 'till it's properly adjusted. Turning the nut clockwise lowers the level, ccw raises it. If you cannot stop the flooding, you will need to remove the bowl and clean it out. You can get a complete rebuild kit from Holley (you'll need the number stamped on the front of the air horn). The kit includes new needle and seat valves, power valves and all necessary gaskets. Always use a new filter to prevent new crud from ruining your work.
If you have bad or questionable ignition wires, replace them before attempting adjustment. Float adjustment is done on a level surface with the engine running.

Toilet flushes fine but when the tank has filled it seems like the float ball keeps bobbing up and down letting more water or air into the tank. it will do this 5/6 times then quits. its almost like it is...


The ball float follows the tank water level, and repeated cycles of the float dropping and opening the fill valve would likely reflect a leak in the flush valve. You could try adjusting the float arm downward so that it will respond to a lower water level. Try turning off the supply valve, flushing it and listen for water leaking past the flush valve after it closes. If it does, replace the flapper or adjust the chain.

It sounds like during the rebuild the float level some how was changed to a higher setting. There is a tab on the float that needs to be bent in order to change when the float valve actually closes. Seems your float valve adjustment is allowing the carb fuel level to be too high which will create the exact symptom that you described.
If the level is fine then there can be a small piece of debris in the float valve seat.
Also.. if the float itself has filled with fuel it can be too heavy to float and cause the float level position to remain low even when the carb is full not allowing the fuel supply to be shut off. If the new o-ring for the float valve was cut during installation it can also cause your current symptom.
At this point I just think that a float level adjustment is all that should be required.
with the float bowl screws loose the bowl should never overflow in a static condition. If it does the float level adjustment is off.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Just bought a pony with a five horse the carb seems to be giving way to much fuel fowling the plug and spraying out the muffler


Sounds like the float level in the Carb is stuck open or set to high.



RECOMENDATION:
Shut off fuel and remove float bowl and inspect for proper operation.


INFO:
You most likely have trash keeping the float valve open or out adjustment..




Hope this tip helps.

Replace float. If it's a metal one, it probably has a hole in it. If its the other kind, it's probably water logged, or else your carb is gummed up and the needle valve is sticking.

Yamaha Grizzly 600 leaking gas


if the carb was really cleaned out, then i would suspect the float is not set properly (where #14 in the pic meets #19, assuming it is adjustable), the float (#14) has a hole in it and is no longer "floating" which turns off fuel to the bowl when it raises #19 (needle valve) or the needle valve is not connected properly to the float (common problem when reassembling a carb.

one way to check is to remove the float bowl and with your finger, push the float up (it pivots) and turn on the petcock. if fuel still pours out the needle valve, then the needle valve may not be connected properly to the float or the needle valve is worn. if it doesn't pour out, then i would replace the float as it is no longer floating (one way to also tell is if you see fuel inside the float if its plastic) to turn off fuel or adjust the float tang (assuming the float is brass. if its plastic, then there is no adjustment). good luck.
