Sticking toilet handle??
 
Sticking toilet handle??
OK why ?
After 8 or 9 years what would cause the handle to keep sticking????????:(
Toto is the name and has been preforming great until now?:confused:
I open the cover , the chain doesn't hang up on anything, the flapper flaps??
I have loosen and tried to tighten but no change!:help:

Just replace it.
Most likly it's the metal shaft inside that gotten corroded.

That doesn't tell me why it goes bad!

Over time the moisture in the air inside the tank causes the metal to corrode causing it to hangup. It's called OLD AGE:(

So with that Info, I applied WD40 to the inside of the handle and it seems to helped. When I get a chance I will replace it. :beer:

Look for one with the brass shaft not a cheap plastic one.

May want to price an after market one. I'd bet that Toto is way more money.
