My toilet still flushes fine but when you press on the pedal you have to put your toe under it and pull it back up. I'm guessing it's a spring in the water valve assembly -- should I just get the appropriate valve assembly kit? There's no leaking. It's been like this for over a year. Doesn't feel sticky, feels like a spring is missing or worn out. Actually I have a vague recollection of something making a sound at the time it first lost its ability to spring right back. Haven't changed that valve assembly for a very long time. Do I need a new pedal with that or will the old pedal work fine with a new valve assembly? I just tried some WD40 and now it's a little worse...phff.

Actually, now I'm thinking it's the spring cartridge assembly. ?


Thanks much...selling my rig after 15 years and moving into my first house. It's time. Appreciate all the help over the years...

It would help to know what brand and model toilet you have.

Parts Number 12 is a spring which might be the problem. Take it apart to find out.
