SOURCE: slow closing toilet seat not working

It needs a new air shock on it. You might be able to take the old one apart and fix it but replacement would be best.

Fix an american standard slow close toilet seat


Check the chain the goes between the handle and the flapper.
It should not be taught. If it is it will not permit the flapper to seat
properly and water will leak out. Adjust the chain length so the flapper is seated and there is just a little slack in the chain.

Changing from villeroy and boch soft close toilet seat to a firm close lid.


I have an American Standard Toilet that you can't get to the nuts and bolts when it is installed. You should take a small mirror and see if you can see the nuts and bolts from the back/wall side of the toilet. I hope you can reach them. I had to disconnect the toilet the floor flange to do it because I couldn't fix a tool back there. Which meant I had to replace the wax seal and reinstall the toilet.

Toliet seat lid doesnt drop slowly anymore ( 4 yrs. old )


Either live with it or replace it. The hinge is not serviceable and the soft close action does not last forever. They rarely last more than five years, maximum.
