How do fix my American standard cadet 3 toilet?

Help! I have an American Standard Cadet 3 #4021N 4.8 LPF 1.28 GPF there is a bar code # 7930956475. Have replaced all the seals. I've also replaced the lapper at least five times I've tried them all, from fluid master, American standard # 7381026-400.0070A, TOTO, Korky. My toilet flapper still leaks. I am at a loss. I want to replace the flush valve assembly in hopes that this will stop my toilet from loosing water. I don't know which one to replace it with. I suspect that the flush valve assembly that's in there is not an American standard product. I have measured the hole in the tank, it measure 4". all the flush valves with the exception of the one piece toilet flush valves are 3". Will the AS 738921-100.00toA 3-inch flush valve assembly work with this toilet? I'm about ready to replace the toilet itself. Thanks!

    where can I find that seal? I've been to Lowe's and Home Depot but have not been able to find anything that will work. Looking into getting a new toilet.

SOURCE: Toilet Refills Every 15-Minutes

I have minute amount of leakage into the bowl causing mold to grow. I believe that it may be the rubber seal for the flapper body to the porcelain.

SOURCE: flapper will not go down

Troy, the flapper otherwise known as the flush valve is easily replaced. They are also very inexpensive. Sometimes they can become distorted due to the clorine in the water and won't operate in the same way they did when it was new. I bet this will fix your issue and save you money as well.

SOURCE: Flush valve drops before bowl completes flush

is the flapper weighted? if it is it will cause it to shut prematurely. one thing you can do is increase the water in the tank. you might have to buy a pvc cuppler to put on the over flow to allow it to fill up more. korky makes a nice flapper thats not weighted

SOURCE: Yellow attachment to flapper in Cadet 3 toilet tank

Some toilet flappers are designed with this some are not. It has to do with the particular flapper design, helping the flapper to stay in the open position to allow a better flush. Anyways you should be to adjust this float up or down to optimize it's usefulness. Trial and error is all you can do, keep watching and flushing until it no longer gets in the way. I hope this helps in at least knowing that for your toilet and the flapper you have, it's suppose to be there. Good luck and thanks for using FIXYA and have a great weekend. Jeff

Try replacing the flapper, they are cheap and so long as the tank and or bowl are not cracked you can replace all of the internal parts and basically have a brand new toilet much cheaper then replacing the entire unit. Go down to your local hardware store and everything you need is in one simple kit with very simple instructions. Good Luck.

My brand new toilet american standard round front model cadet 3 tank not fill water


If you verify that the water supply to the toilet is turned on, push down the float on the flush valve. Water should start flowing. If it doesn't, something (such as debris) may be blocking the valve and preventing filling. The new valve could be defective - permanently closed.

American standard caded 3 leaking water from tank into toilet and occasionally running every 5 minutes. is this a flapper problem (it seems well seated) or could it be leaking elswhere?


It could be a bad seat around the flapper or the flapper itself. Replace flapper with one designed for the Cadet. Check water level and see it doesn't flow above the overflow tube. if it is above the tube lower the float ball by turning the screw at top of ball.

RECOMENDATION:

Take it back.

Home Depot also sells a Kohler Toilet 1.6 Gallon Flush Install
This is all it said it was. It saves water for sure and has a quick flush.

We liked it so much we purchased two of them because everyone in the house only wanted to using our bathroom.

Hope this tip helps.
