That is the way a vent-a-way toilet works. It will run until the handle is reset. But if the handle has become disconnected from the venting mechanism, then it will not shut off when you push the handle in or down.

: I feel like I'm in heaven! We moved into our 1911 house 5 years ago and have a Vent-Away toilet in our main bathroom. It has worked PERFECTLY until yesterday. Now it seems to run constantly--I tried to turn off the water valve behind the bowl, but am unable to get it completely tight--the water pressure seems to continue. I wanted to turn it off so I could familiarize myself with the gizmos inside--it looks like no toilet I've ever seen before--a virtual Rube Goldberg machine!! Any hints?
