American Standard overflow problem
Posted by Kerry on September 15, 2001 at 17:36:48:
My American Standard,6.0lpf/1.6gpf toilet will not shut off. The yellow refill mechanism in the toilet is not working. The yellow casing contains two soft plastic washers and a silver dollar size hard plastic piece which also connects to a hard plastic tube (length of a pencil).In the past, I removed the internal parts and soaked them in vinegar to remove calcium deposits. The vinegar trick is not working anymore and I'm getting frustrated with always having to stop the water flow thru the valve below the toilet. I went to Home Depot and Lowes for advice and walk away with no new ideals. I need help big time.
