The problem is not likely battery related. It sounds like either an ignition or fuel control relay that is not actuating due to missing electrical voltage.

Kohler 100-Amp... | Answered on Nov 26, 2017

It is highly unlikely that the faucet failed; it's far more likely the feed tube between the water pipe and the faucet burst. If your faucets were installed 5 years ago, it's likely that they were installed with flexible feed tubes. Reach up under the faucet and unscrew the feed tube, then unscrew the feed tube from the cutoff valve on the water pipe. Take the burst tube to Home Depot and get a new one - it should cost $10 or so. (I would also recommend picking up a small tube of thread seal - it'll look like a travel tube of toothpaste and cost about $3.) Lightly coat the threads of the faucet connection with thread seal and screw the feed pipe onto the faucet as tight as you can with your hand. Do the same at the cutoff valve end with a wrench but do not over tighten. Once both ends are firmly connected, turn the cutoff valve on and check for leaks. If you find any, try to tighten the connections a bit. If you're uncomfortable with any of this, I'm sure there's a DIYer like me in your neighborhood who'd be glad to help out. It's easy and it's quick once you've done it a couple times. Good luck!

There is definitely a problem with the cold valve if it is leaking, but it seems odd that it doesn't leak when it is on. If I was doing this, I would replace both valves.

they are normally held on with two screws to the valve.

The Kohler 7.5 R had a possible three different voltage regulators that could be used.
You need to check there first. Also if you can get it the service manual for these are tp-5110 Which will show you how to test the regulator o the bench. There was a 5 6 and 7 pin regulator that could have been used.

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.

That faucet has a lifetime warranty. Call Kohler (1-800-4-Kohler) and tell them you need a new cartridge for a K-10270 faucet.

They make an extraction tool called a grabitz
It's a double ended tool which has sort of drill on one end and an ez-out on the other. Use the drill end first then the other with drill in reverse usually will come right out. And put some grease on the new screw before installation and won't have that problem next time

-Only at the sink has no hot water...?
If yes then:
-Make sure the valve on the wall is Turn On.
-If not sure which way then turn faucet on and then turn the vale on to either side to find out.

Good luck

Check whether the faucet is leaking or the drainage is leaking.
If the faucet is leaking, you need tools to loosen the faucet to check whether the hoses are leaking or not. If the drainage is leaking, you can tighten the slip nut.

Either the fill valve is defective and won't shut off or the refill level is set too high.
