In response to Re: Toilet: Must hold down handle...Fixing Flush Valve

: Our bathroom toilet will not flush without the handle being held down until the flush is complete (ie. not automatic). Once the handle is released, it fills as any normal toilet will.

: Does this little problem require new hardware be installed, or does it simply require an adjustment in the existing hardware?

Brenda,
You may need to tighten up the chain or rubber leader to the flush lever. In some cases, the flapper has been replaced with the incorrect model for the toilet, not allowing proper "float" during the flush action. Terry
