Adjust the level of the float, water level should be about 1/2" below top of overflow pipe. Slow filling can be due to a build up of calcium in fill vale, a partially blocked water valve, the washer many times gets deteriorated by the chlorine in the water, breaks up and clogs the fill line. Also many manufacturers (fluid-master in particular) place water restrictors inside the bottom of the fill tubes, which cause the water to fill much slower.

Not normal for that to happen but the jet faces on the two back jets may be turned off or down.
Try turning the face of the jet clockwise and see if you get more water flow out of each jet.

The older styles have a screw at the end of the shaft where the fill valve is, turn the screw in and out to adjust float arm level. Newer ones have a plastic nut and bolt about midway along the shaft. Turn the nut to loosen slightly, push the float up or down and tighten the nut. Caution: The plastic bolt breaks easily so don't tighten the nut too much.

Depends on type. Rubber ones usually are suspended from the seat by an arm on either side, you pull it off the arms and replace the same way. Older ones slide down over the overflow tube.

If you;re sure its under the toilet, look for a crack in the base, especially around the retianing bolts, or the wax bowl seal is gone, needs replacing.

Either the flapper is not closing completely or the water level is too high so water runs out the overflow pipe. Level should be set at 1/2" below top of pipe.

Hi Joey, The problem is likely that the switch is installed incorrectly. I'm sorry I don't recommend or advise any repair of a appliance that is water/electrical by anyone other than an authorized repair person. Furthermore, I would not use the appliance again until you have have professional repairs done.

When there is a load on the motor and it is surging this is an indication of not enough water getting to the front of the pump.
Check the water flowing inside the tub going from the jet opposite the suction cover.
Sounds to me like you may be getting cavitation because the pump is pulling in too many air bubbles from the jet.
Close the air control and/or move the direction of the eyeball from pointing at the suction cover and see if that helps.

I think fitting of your shower is not proper. You have to fit it properly if you can or you can call a nearest Plumber to solve your problem.

The roof vent for the toilets is shared. It is the pipe (on the roof) that lets water in the drain system. When clogged, it causes what you have. A garden hose placed in the roof vent (and turned on) may clear the blockage (could be leafs or pine straw or a dead bird). Needs to be cleared... I have used a plumbers snake with 100% success....but you may not have one...so the garden hose suggestion. Be careful on the roof.

If you manually pull up on the float of the fill valve will it then shut off? If it does, most likely your water pressure is too high, should be around 60 psi. More then 80 and it won't shut off. You may need to add a restrictor to the fill valve. Most fluid-master units come with one already installed, you could try one of them.

Right now you are having to turn it on/off by using the circuit breaker or just unplugging the pump right?
Is this a button you depress or an electric button like you would find on a microwave?
If it is a button you depress to turn it on/off then the problem is most likely the air switch located in the motor under the skirt of the tub.
If it is an electric button then it may be the control box under the tub that needs to be replaced.

I would say if you use heat use a heat gun. Better heat but be careful, they are much hotter than you think and you do not want to damage the finish.

Adjust the float so water level stops at 1/2" below top of overflow pipe.

Could be a chunk of scale in the valve. Need to turn off water supply and take valve apart. If nothing is found, turn water supply on to give line a 'quick' flush and turn back off. If this does not help, you probably have an obstruction somewhere in the hot supply line and a plumber may be needed unless you are handy. Good luck.

I live in a mobile home park and that is what i do as the park handyman. The fastest way... cut the pipe with a recipricating saw and remove a long section. Knock it to let all the ice slide out. bring it into a warm shop for a while if you have to or run warm water through it. place a micro furnace near the sewer and use a heatgun if more ice is at the other end. Once things are clear, use two 3 inch fernco adapters and clamp everything back together. (i always keep a couple on hand just in case this happens) Make sure the lean is perfectly angled with no place for water to sit or this is what happens.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Clear a blocked water intake:
  1. Twist-off or unscrew the intake cover.
  2. Clean the intake cover with an old toothbrush and powdered laundry detergent. Rinse any soap residue from the cover before reinstalling.
  3. Replace the cover.
Replace a jet:
  1. Identify the damaged or inoperative jet and make sure it requires replacement.
  2. Follow the owner's manual instructions for removing the old jet. Some twist out by hand while others require a special wrench.
  3. Find an exact replacement jet (through a pool or spa supplier) and install the new jet.

t sounds like you have a bad air switch located in your motor.
The air switch is what the air hose connects to on the back of the motor or on the box on top of the motor. The other end of the air hose is connected to the air button on the lip of the tub.
This is a latching air switch and when you push the air button it latches to send power to the motor. When the air button is pushed again it opens the latch in the air switch and stops power going to the motor shutting it off.
