Question about Eljer Home

1 Answer

My Eljer 141-4500 toilet has the Fluidmaster flush valve. The toilet flushes but won't refill. If you turn off the water supply and turn it back on, then it refills no problem. But it does not do this when you flush. Help

Im a woman so i dont know much about this stuff but my toilet bowl wont refill and i need to know what to do... i have a fluidmaster 200a


Take off the cover and look at the mechanism when you flush. It's possible the set screw that keeps the flush rod in place has just loosened. If not then the easiest way to deal with this is to replace the Toilet Refill Valve. Turn the water line at the base of the toilet to off. Flush until most of the water is out of the tank, the go to Home Depot and buy this:

Fluidmaster Toilet Tank Fill Valve 200AX The Home Depot

Unscrew the old one and screw in the new one.

Eljer Windsor One Piece Toilet help - leaks water into bowl


I would go back with the ballcock kind. However, the flapper will need to be replaced. It is not seating properly. The fluid master is a revised version and a bit more efficient. It should work well also. They both work off buoyancy and shuts off water the same way.

hiya:) This is a result of a very minor design error (i am a big fan of FluidMaster products) combined w/a slightly higher than normal water pressure situation or foreign matter stuck in the valve somewhere. try turning down the water pressure via the shuttoff under the toilet tank:)

Older Eljer toilets are good for this and yes you need to replace the complete flush valve assembly. I would recommend putting in a fluid master system as they in my opinion are the best. Their kits come complete with everything you need to do the job and provide excellent instructions and if that is not good they have videos on their web site. The site is slow to load but worth waiting for.

Occasionally after flushing ,water continues to trickle slightly in toilet bowl. Have changed flapper twice. Wondering if the seat that the flapper sits on is worn or something. It looks ok. Have a one...


Make sure the flush valve is closing properly and that the water level is not set too high causing water to enter the overflow tube. If the flapper seat is damaged and cannot just be be cleaned, you can add a new seat right over the old one. Fluidmaster sells them for just a few dollars. Most hardware stores have them - Home Depot and Lowes stock them.

I have fluidmaster in my mancesa toilet. After flushing the toilet tank doesn't refill unless I turn off the water supply and turn it back on. What do I do to fix this problem. Wayne


First thing to do is figure out if the problem is with the fluidmaster or with the shutoff valve. If the water doesn't run at all after flushing, then instead of cycling the shutoff valve, just loosen the nut where the supply tube attaches to the fluidmaster (under the tank). If the problem is in the fluidmaster, it will start to squirt out at you, otherwise it won't. Then you know what to disassemble and attempt to repair, or replace.

Replace flapper, it is worn out.Turn off water valve. Flush toilet, remove flapper. Then replace flapper, adjust chain to same size as old one, then turn water back on.
