You may have dirt getting into your water from the well and clogging the fill valves in your toilets. Valve assembly can be opened and cleaned out from the top. Instructions are available on AS website for your model. (Note) If you are picking up material from your well, a sediment filter should be added to your water line.

SOURCE: Toto Toilet - no water flow to refill tank after flush

Remove the tank lid and look at the fill valve. Is it a yellow valve?
This fill valve is common on the Toto Toilets and can easliy plug with debrie.

They can be disassmbled and cleaned. however, I usually just replace the valve with Fluid Master Fill valve.
You will also want to check the water coming into the toilet by turning off the water that supplies the toilet and disconnecting the water supply line. After removing the water supply line turn on the water at the valve to make sure that the water is flowing properly. Check the supply line also to make sure it is not plugged.
Be sure and place a small container to catch the water that will come from the valve. A towell will also help from making too much of a mess.
If the Supply line and the valve are clear the problem is in the fill valve.
The G-Max system denotes the Flushiing system which is a 3" flapper that allows the water from the tank to flow into the bowl quicker.
Good Toilets!

SOURCE: pegasus toilet tank will not refill

Most likely the washer came off and is stuck in the shut off valve or the float is stuck all the way up. Checkk adjustment screw in the top of the water control valve to make sure it is not turned all the way in.

Hi keithn60...

I had the same problem one time with my toilet tank, the answer is to put some silicone on the seal washer between the take and bowl assembly and to use a level on the tank to tighten it just enough to be level and not leak.
Please take time to rate me

Why would you fill anything that leaks back out?

If you can't afford anything, why ask what to do?

Why not just tell us what you saw leaking,such as a
power steering hose etc.

You know something has to be bought & installed,
to get the steering system back in proper working order

A fuel filter would not have an effect on one cylinder
& you know how long it was in the car
It could be there 3 to 5 years & be just fine

Don't assume that a code last time that pointed you to a bad
coil will happen that way again.

Codes don't really tell you to change anything
You could have a code for #5 & walk a new coil for 4 cyl's
until you get to # 6 now you found the bad one.

You have several coil packs that feed more than one
plug, you have more to consider

I approach this the way I am, as you most likely
can not test anything, because you lack the proper
equipment ,so you have to do things the hard or longer
way of trial & error. Just don't throw money & parts at
it in doing so

You have 2 problems with several possible causes:
You have 10-year-old electric water heater that was reinstalled after falling down, and doesn't heat the water.
And you have no hot or cold water pressure, and no pipes are leaking.

1) First problem is lack of water pressure throughout house.
Turn on outdoor spigot nearest to water meter.
This spigot will tell you if problem is inside the house or between the house and meter.
If spigot runs full force, then you probably have clogged pipe where water heater connects to main cold line, or the main shut off valve got clogged with sediment that broke off inside the pipe when you were working on water heater.
Open and close shut off valve to see if that helps. Then disassemble pipes and track back the problem. Put pressure gauge on water heater drain valve to watch pressure drop when turning on indoor faucet.
Read following information:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html

Water heater doesn't work:
Test across wires at top of heater to see if you are getting correct voltage:
If tank is receiving correct voltage, then no hot water puts suspicion on upper element or upper thermostat, or both.

2005 Chrysler Pacifica 3.5 V6, has a code that says bad crank sensor, got a new one, want to know the location of the crank sensor for that model


Codes don't tell you anything is bad

They are used to diagnose & component test
a sensor or other parts of a system

You only replace a part if it fails a test

If your not testing the system & it's components,
how would you know what does work & what doesn't?

I don't know if there is a place to drain the air conditioner unit.


jbuck, Since your unit is a multifunction unit (AC, Heat & Dehumidifier) you don't have to darin any water. It uses an evaporative system, that exhaust the water/moisture thru the exhaust hose to the outside. With that said, there may be a rare occasion, that the condensation pan under the unit, needs to be drained. In which case, you will find the drain hole, covered by a plastic screw off cap, on the left rear of the unit (as you face the rear of the unit), next to the cord keeper. A small plastic bowl or pan that will fit under the drain hole will suffice. As, there shouldn't be that much water to drain.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

A/c blows cold on one side an hot on the other


To figure out anything at all on a Lincoln LS,because it is
one of Fords most complicated and all electronic vehicles,
(I own One) you need a professional scan tool and the factory
diagnostic manuals or a similiar data base, to do anything at all,
when something doesn't work correctly.

I would NEVER recommend a dealer for any vehicle ever

If you have thousands to spend,your call

That leaves the local repair shops & they don't all care
for Ford Products.
I don't know about the LS & newer Lincolns,but it won't
be a quick fix,as it will be extremely time consumming
just to find the issues at the repair shop you choose

Then your going to get told it is okey or they couldn't find
anything or did do something, that won't last

I could have painted a very positive picture,but I want you
to know todays vehicles are very difficult to diagnose &
mainly there isn't too many mechanics or shops that are
going to do the difficult job of training & self study

You may get a better more technical answer in a couple
days by a tech who know more about the HVAC System
and your issue
