Probably the rotor has come to a stand still (carbonade). I suggest you will clean the rotor with an house-hold acid liquid (like the one for cleaning coffeemachines).

Bowl turns on our thetford Aqua Magic Style ll rv toilet


the reason you are getting sewer gases are the wax seal under the toilet is not making proper contact with the bowl and flange....pull the toilet and replace the wax seal...buy a cant leak seal from lowes...may want to buy new bolts to reinstall...they sell plastic ones that you can cut easy after you tighten...make sure to shim the toilet if it moves...use toilet shims...also at lowes...this is why this happened to start with...it was not done right to start ...after all that caulk or grout bowl to floor...now you have a pro install...

The Toto toilet runs and will not shut off.


The reason for toilets running is one of 2 problems. 1)The flush valve (or flapper) is not closing/sealing properly. 2)The fill valve is not closing properly.

Regarding the flush valve; usually it's the chain connecting the handle to the valve hanging up on something. When the valve is closed, the chain should have a little bit of slack in it. Sometimes these valves actually get cracks in them from age and that doesn't allow a good seal. So you could try a new flapper or whole new flush valve.

Regarding the fill valve; most of these have a floatation device. Make sure the float is able to rise all the way to shut off the valve. Watch the water come into the tank; there is an overflow tube in the middle of the tank. If the water goes into the over flow tube that means the float is not rising high enough to shut of the valve. Where I live there is a lot of lime in the water and this accumulates and can causes problems with float movement. Or it could be out of adjustment. The old floats had an arm you could bend to adjust and the newer ones twist up or down on the valve pedestal.

In closing, both valves are fairly cheap and anyone with some basic tools and a little know how can change them out. I hope this helps.

Flapper valve closes too quickly


Fill the breather hole (1/8" hole) inside the flapper.This is designed to let air out so the flapper will sink. Now it floats longer letting in more water. 25%percent more in my case.

C200 toilet continues flushing


It sounds like the solenoid valve is stuck open. This is tucked away up inside the bowl
and the bowl needs to be removed to gain access. For a repair sheet email infoau@thetford.nl

I have a thetford toilet in my caravan with electrical flush since the big freeze it makes a flush noise but despite being full will not flush


Try tapping on the opening in the bottom of the toilet, the valve that opens, with a broom handle while flushing to see if it has somhow gotten stuck. There is also a micro switch in the groove that the blade turn knob slids into, this could be bad as well as the pump may have been damaged, it is under the toilet roll holder. Here is a link to their repair site.

Dosnt flush all the way


Here's how I fixed the same problem on a different model toilet.

Nov 24, 2010 | Toto Carlyle 1-piece Elongated Bowl Toilet

1 Answer

The lever (handle) to flush the toilet does not rise after it is pushed down, causing the toilet to run. One has to push the lever (handle)up after the down motion to make it function properly.


I had this issue as well with my toilet. My chain was unattached and had been sucked down the drain under the stopper valve preventing the toilet stopper valve from completely closing and causing the water to continually run. After re-attaching the chain I noticed when I flushed the toilet that the handle did not rise again until I manually pushed it up. After readjusting the chain to a tighter position where the chain was not floating at all but instead holding the stopper valve in place I again flushed to check the reaction. This fixed the issue of the water continually running and also the handle not resetting itself properly.

Here is the steps I took to resolve my issue:

Step 1: Remove the lid off of the tank.

Step 2: Check to see if the chain coming from the Toilet Handle to the Stopper Valve is loose, unattached, or broken.

Step 3: Flush the toilet and check to see if the problem has been fixed. If not readjust the chain to a different position and flush again.

Step 4: If all is resolved replace the tank lid.

Other possible things to check:
Check the Float Ball to see if it's Half-way or more submerged in the water. If it is it needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps!

I have an American Stadard Toilet that is only 2 years old. The toilet will not stop running. Could you give me some trouble shooting ideas?


There's a lot of variety in the works in the toilet tank. Assuming this is not a pressure-assisted toilet-----First understand the three valves are: 1. The shutoff valve - on the supply line coming into the toilet tank. 2. The fill valve - inside the tank, opens with the float descends, closes when the tank fills up. 3. The flush valve - inside the tank on the bottom. Common old style is a flapper on a pivot. Yours may operate straight up and down rather than on a pivot.
Three very common problems are---- 1. The chain that connects the handle to lift the flush valve is getting caught, not allowing the flush valve to close. 2. There is problem with the flush valve being able to get a good seal when it closes - could be debris or misalignment. 3. The fill valve is not closing when the tank is full, could need adjustment or there is debris preventing the valve to seat. . Here's are some steps to diagnose---- close the shutoff valve. Wait a few minutes as you watch the level in the tank. If the water level decreases, you have problem with the flush valve. To confirm the fill valve as the problem, turn the shutoff valve back on. Lift up on the float that is supposed to turn off the fill valve. If it shuts off, you should be able to adjust it - most have a +/- plastic adjustment screw. But if raising the float by hand only slows it down, you have problem with the seating of the fill valve - which can sometimes be cleaned, but more often would need to be replaced.
I hope this is helpful. Thanks for using FixYa.

My toilet handel is broke.how ican install


Remove the water cover lid then remove the chain connector at the handle looks like a diaper pin then unscrew the nut holding the handle in place and feed the handle assembly threw the nut and buy new handle assembly and replace. IF it's just the chain is broke replace the chain they are sold separately at any hardware store. IF it's the valve you can replace it as well by shutting off the toilet water valve, next disconnect the hose and go buy a float assembly that is similar. Adjust the new float assembly to be the same length as the old one then install gasket on the float and put in the hole for the float, install second gasket on the float on the outside and then install the nut and install the hose. Before you tighten the nut on the float make sure the float valve lines up with the handle and the float then tighten down hook up new chain and tighten the water hose, tighten the nut on the float and open the water valve. Watch the water level fill up if it looks like it's going to run over you will have to adjust the float so that it does not run into the throat of the toilet.

Toilet trouble


Based on the phrasing of your question, I'm thinking that the bad noise happens for the first time when the valve opens to start filling (this happens when you first let water into the bowl) and then again when the valve closes (when the cistern is full). Valves sometimes have a high-pitched squealing noise when it takes a long time to open or close this valve. Sometimes, you can make it go away by turning the screw to adjust the height that the ball/float has to be in order to shut off the water (the more horizontal, the longer it takes to shut off the flow, and the longer the noise continues). Sometimes, this is just caused by an aging mechanism and it turns out to be quicker and easier to just replace that part of the toilet (they make replacement kits that are very inexpensive and easy to install).
