Definitely there is an obstruction on the blade or impeller inside the pump casing. Pry open the lid using a flat head screwdriver and remove the motor with pressure chamber out of the pump csing as one piece. Once the motor is out inspect the blade (on top of motor) and the impeller which is at the bottom of the motor. Also the starting capacitor may have seized up. If the capacitor goes bad it tend to hum and not pump any waste out.

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.

Toilet wont flush


Main 3 (or 4) inch drain under the toilet is clogged. Requires removing the toilet and running a "snake" down the pipe. Alternately, you can (carefully) try manually filling the toilet bowl all the way to the top----to apply pressure to the clog....it may push it through.

TOILET WONT FLUSH AWAY PROPERLY


I believe what your plumber was referring to are the flushing orifices. Yes they have changed through the years. Unless you have a pressure assisted toilet, the orifices are what makes it flush, by breaking the trap seal and creating a vacuum. Now that being said you can check to see if this is the problem by filling up a bucket with aprox. 2 gallons of water and dumping it straight into the bowl. It should flush right down with out hesitation. If it does then your orifices are not working properly. If this is a new stool, it is possible it is just a bad mold and should be replaced. I hope this helps. Your new toilet should flush for you.
