Water Tank Will Not Stop Running Water

I have 2 toilets and I was trying to troubleshoot on how to make the water stop dripping in the tank in bathroom #1 by looking at the setup in bathroom #2. I fixed bathroom #1 (i really don't know how) but now in bathroom #2 the water will not stop running in the tank. I have an American Standard (yellow) setup that has a big plastic thing on the left side that has a top that you can screw off. I messed with that a little. Can you assist me?

    Water won't stop running. I have taken the yellow float apart on both of the toilets. There isn't anything that you would be able to bend. The piece is plastic. I have pulled everything out wiped it clean and then resealed everything making sure the cap is tightly adjusted. The rubber plastic around the center looked a little aged on one of them but the other was fine. I got the water to slow to a trickle but it still fills the tank completely and continues to run. Any thoughts????

The reason your water keeps running is because the float has not closed of the valve in the stem on the left side. a quick fix is i take the rod that has the float on it and bend it down a little. i also make sure that the plug that fits over the drain seats properly alot of times through age the plug tends to harden up and not seat properly. if you cant get it to seat replace it. if your model has an adjustment screw on the valve body try adjusting that as well.......good luck please rate this

Kohler 4634aa is running and I've already changed the flapper, could it be the valve?


Yes it could be valve just cause you changed the flapper doesnt mean that you stop water from filling in tank the valve that shuts water of can still be running the water will go down the bowl fill tube that is were the black tube goes that connects to the top of white pipe the simple whey to find out is just push down on black float and water will stop add in tank let off black ball and water should stop or just lift up on float arm and water should stop bend float arm if necessary.

The toilet keeps running constantly - the tube in the tank is overflowing and i can not get the dripping sound to stop. Anything i can do?


The noise is because your float in the toilet is set at too high of a level and it is overflowing and making noise.
Reset your float, to adjust the water level just below the overflow pipe...this should stop your noise.
If it does not correct the problem then you will have to replace the water control unit inside of the toilet tank.

Toilet doesn't turn off after flush


The Kohler Cimarron is one of the most popular and reliable toilets out there. (My Favorite). However, depending on the hardness of the water and if you use cleaner tabs in the tank, these factors can lead to a malfunction.
The first thing you should do is hold the flapper (rubber seal inside the tank that releases the water down to the bowl) down with your hands for a few seconds after a flush and see if the toilet stops running. Sometimes the flapper doesn't seal properly therefore the fill valve keeps working non stop. Stopping the fill while holding the flapper down will confirm that your flapper needs to be changed.
If this doesn't work then try this....
The other common problem with a running toilet is with the fill valve itself. There is an attached float on the fill valve that goes up and down depending on the water level. Once the water level rises, it rises the float, and the float tells the fill valve to stop filling the tank. While the toilet is running (hissing), try raising the float all the way up with your hand and see if it stops. If it stops but not consistently with every attempt, then you will need to change the fill valve. I believe the Fluidmaster 400A is the replacement model.

Toilet is constantly running into bowl..have replaced flap with no difference


Change your Ball ****...(Water inlet Device)
You can also make sure that the water level is not set too high in the tank and overflowing into the overflow tube...if it is try to readjust the float to seal the water from getting into the tank. If you cannot readjust the float to stop the water from entering the tank then you must replace the Ball ****.

Archer tank always running. don't know how to fix


If there is always water running into the toilet bowl, replace the tank ball. That's the stopper at the bottom. If you can lift the float and stop the water, either replace the sealing diaphram at the top of the ballcock (float valve) or replace the whole unit. Some are not repairabe.
