Readjust the float. the longer it is the more leverage the fill water will have on it. good luck. The fill valve does come apart and cleaned if there is debri in it. Turn the water off first:)

If you are sitting or squatting next to the toilet turn the nut clockwise. If you are laying on your back looking up at the nut, turn counter-clockwise. It helps to simulate opening a jar, then turn your wrists to match your view angle. Don't forget to have a bucket handy, and you will probably need a sponge to soak up the remaining water in the tank.

take off the tank cover and you'll see "the flapper" not sealed against the hole where the water goes to the bowl, the chain that holds the flapper might be tangled or flapper is real bad,.....you'll see what the problem is,..

Tip

How to install a new flush valve


  • Flush valves are held to the tank by one large jam nut on the bottom of the tank. Installing a new flush valve usually requires removing the toilet tank from the bowl, which can be rather complicated. However, wall-mounted tanks may not need to be removed.

  • If the toilet tank must be removed, turn the water off completely, flush the toilet and hold the trip lever down to evacuate most of the tank water. Use a sponge to remove the remaining water. Disconnect the tank's inlet fitting from the water supply. If the flexible riser tube is damaged, replace it.

  • Then, unscrew the two rubber-gasketed bolts flanking the flush valve. These bolts go through the tank and bowl flange, with nuts beneath. Use caution–forcing the bolts may cause you to break the tank, bowl or both. Use plenty of penetrating oil on the threads. If they still won't budge without force, try wrapping masking tape around a hacksaw blade and sawing with the teeth facing you, so the blade cuts on the "pull" stroke. The layer of masking tape will protect the bowl's glazed surface from saw scratches.

  • The tank should now lift away from the bowl. Lay it upside-down on a throw rug or newspaper padding to protect it, and unscrew the large nut holding the flush valve to the tank. Use channel-locking pliers plus penetrating oil and extreme care to avoid breakage. Clamp a well-padded locking plier/wrench around the flush valve to keep it from rotating inside the tank.

  • Install the new flush valve according to the directions. The rubber gasket goes on the inside of the tank to prevent leakage. The flat washer fits on the outside to prevent tank damage.

  • Use new brass tank hold-down bolts, which will remain workable. Tighten the bolts just enough to compress the tank's soft rubber gasket and keep it from leaking.

  • Install the water supply riser to the tank and turn on the water.

The tank bolts do not get removed. The flush valve is mounted in a hole toward the rear of the tank. The nut under the tank is removed to allow removal of the flush valve from the inside of the tank. The replacement flush valve is inserted into the hole inside the tank and the nut is installed to fasten it in place

After flush tank refills very slowly---is there a restictor that can be removed ..what color is it ..an tell me what to do


probably not. your valve is corroded or stopped up. It pretty easy to change and you can buy one at most hardware stores.
(1) turn the water off to the stool
(2) unscrew the inlet hose coming from the wall to the stool valve (under the tank usually on the left)
(3) unscrew the big plastic nut holding the valve to the tank (the nut is under the tank) ( be sure to flush the stool and get as much water out of the tank before unscrewing the nut. Get a large towel or bowl as you will have some water leak from the tank when you pull the valve out.
(4) disconnect the overflow line coming from the valve to the center line in the tank. (this is just usually a little rubber hose about 1/4" around. You are ready to go get another valve. You might take the old one with you.

When I flush thenwater fills to the fill line and slowly keeps on dripping over the top of the flush valve tube.


I would ckeck to see where water fill line is inside toilet tank and then adjust flush valve to try to get it to shut off at this point. Not knowing whether your toilet still has original flush valve it is hard to tell you how to fix it. If it has float mounted on rod to flush valve there is usually a set screw on the top of the flush valve in the center. Turn this screw clockwise to make valve shut off sooner. Try to set it so that water shuts off when it is at fill mark. If float is mounted on brass float rod you can support rod closest to flush valve with left hand and carefully bend rod down a little with your right. This will cause flush valve to shut off sooner. If the seat is worn to badly in flush valve you will need to replace it.

Toilet refills and water stops running. a couple seconds later get the sound of air which continues. if I push black float down a bit it stops manually but when I let go continues??


It can be one of two things first you either have air in your watter line in this case let water run for a while and see if you get air if so let it run until it quits spitting or contact your water company for help.Second the diaphram is worn in the top of the valve in this case the whole valve will need to be replaced turn off water flush toilet put pan or bowl under water line at toilet remove water line at toilet .Unscrew the fitting and remove hose next remove the large plastic nut on the bottom of tank .Some water will leak out hence the bowl! remove valve replace wit new one line up in same direction it was removed put on new rubber washer supplied,Tighten plastic nut replace hose and tighten turn on water that should fix it!

No water through group head


Hi
More than likely your 3 way valve is stuck. It is located behind the front panel and when the 2 screws are removed it slides to the right. Unplug your machine before working on it. The 3 way valve is on the left and you can remove the dispersion tube on the bottom(unscrews) 14mm nut holds the solenoid on and you can slide the solenoid down the shaft. The big nut at the top of the shaft will unscrew and there you will fin the solenoid inside with a big spring. If its not stuck it will slide out and you probably need a new 3 way valve, but more than likely its stuck. Some times just tapping the nut on something hard will unstick the solenoid. Clean good and reinstall.
