Question about American Standard Home
SOURCE: tank wont refill/how to fix
JC most commonly the ball **** will hang up on the side of the tank. Take the lid off and ensure that it is in the down position. If it is not bend the rodso the ball move away from the side of the tank. If the toilet is running continously and the tank won't fill you will need to either replace the flapper valve which is in the bottom center of the tank or adjust the chain on the flapper and handle to allow the valve to open momentarily and close once the water level reaches it and drains out the hole.If all of the above did not resolve the issue you will need to replace the ballcock valve which is the piece the water supply attaches to underneath the tank on the handle side and protrudes through the tank and has the ballcock rod attached to it. The best replacement is a Fluidmaster as they are very easy to self install and easy to adjust the water level in the tank. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

Yes it must be cracked between the tank and bowl . Take a #2 pencil and and rub it back and forth inside the tank that should show the crack. Good Luck

Replace the flappers, and clean around the flapper seat.
Make sure the water level is 1/2 " below the large vertical tube by either bending the float rod down or adjust the skinny silver rod on a Fluidmaster unit.

probably the flapper valve is not seating correctly over the outlet. you can fix it by reaching in and twisting the valve one way or the other till it seats properly and the leak will stop.

To see where the water is going, place some red cake dye in the tank and see where the water turns red....this will show you exactly what is happening and where the water is going...
