My Vacuity will not flush unless I move the metal rod inside the tank.
Before You Begin:
Before you begin you may wish to have the following tools handy:
- Cup or glass
- You may also need Fluidmaster seal #242 available from most hardware stores.
Directions:There are two possible fixes for this scenario: checking the valve seal, and cleaning debris under the valve seal. Let us begin with checking the valve seal.
- Turn off water at the floor supply valve. (See Figure 1.0)
- Flush the toilet to empty the water out of the tank.
- Grab hold of the cap assembly with the gray arm resting on your thumb. (See Figure 1.1)
- Holding the gray arm in the "up" position, turn the entire cap assembly counter clockwise Â¼ turn (See Figure 1.2) and lift to disconnect the cap from the shaft.(See Figure 1.3)
- Disconnect the gray arm from the metal rod. (See Figure 1.4)
- When you turn the cap assembly upside down you will see the black seal (see Figure 1.5) with a small diameter metal rod protruding from the center.
- Remove the seal and replace with the new Fluidmaster 242 seal.
- Place the gray arm back on to the metal rod.
- Place the cap assembly over the shaft, hold the gray arm in the "up" position, and turn the cap assembly clockwise until it locks into position. *Make sure that the metal rod is positioned on the left side of the divider. (See Figure 1.6)
- Turn on the water at the floor supply valve.
- Flush to test.
