My new Kohler toilet with AquaPiston technology won't flush consistently. Sometimes it won't flush and you manually have to trigger it. Any suggestions for troubleshooting?

The jet that pushes the water through maybe clogged with calcium buildup.

SOURCE: Toilet won't shut off

Does it leak from the overflow? If so then the washer at the top of the Fluidmaster needs to be replaced. If it is not going over the overflow then you will need to replace the flapper on the flush valve.

This type of flush system can be re presurised quickly by holding down the flush handle for about good 2 minutes, then release , wait for the tank to be refilled with water.

SOURCE: Push Button - Have to Hold Down Button

I had the same problem. The fix cost me 50 cents (literally). I just placed a quarter on top of the Blue and White flush buttons (not sure of the technical terms) inside the tank and now it flushes properly. It seems that the 2 plastic poles the extend from the faux chrome buttons are just a bit too short.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Kohler Cimarron elongated comfort height toilet not flushing correctly

low water in the bowl is only caused by the float being to high! the gurgles is Usually because of air coming back up through the pipe, check your vent pipe that come out the roof. this will help the draining.

Kohler cimarron very noisy when flushed


You probably have one of the newer Cimarron-series toilets that feature what Kohler calls "AquaPiston" technology. These gadgets use the water pressure in your supply lines to pressurize a charge of flush water in the tank, causing the flush water to rush into the bowl at high pressure and velocity. Many Cimarron-series toilets use only 1.28 gpf (gallons per flush), compared to the current industry standard of 1.6 gpf for conventional gravity-flush units. Reducing the gpf rating by 20% requires pressurizing the water in the tank, and the release of pressurized water makes a lot of noise. I'm afraid your toilet will always be noisier than what you may be used to.

Float does not trigger valve to stop water - continues to run even though tank is full


What kind of flush valve is it? kohler.com shows a couple of different towers with their ingenium toilets. Is it a Kohler item or is it a Fluidmaster?
Usually you adjust water height by turning a threaded rod that runs up and down. See page 5 of this pdf

Replaced the flapper with a new one and the toilet will lose water until it triggers the fill valve in maybe an hour. Is the gasket betwenn the tank and the cistern leaking slowly?


check the fill tube. sometimes they crack, put some food coloring in the tank and that will help you find leaks too. gently squeeze the tube and see if you see water running down the inside of the tube

Kohler is correct. The most likely cause of this problem is an obstruction in the common vent stack that both toilets share. When you flush the old toilet it need more air to flush and will get it from the easiest source (your new water saver toilet). First adjust the float level in the old toilet so it won't use as much water or just stick a brick in the tank to take up space.Second, run a snake down the vent stack from the roof to check for obstructions. Birds will sometimes nest in there.

Kohler Cimmaron Toilet Flush


You might want to check the flush cylinder, to see if it has water in it. It has to be water free, that way the air in it, lets it go down easier, during fill up.
