    Hi
    Have a wirquin jollyfill cistern which when I do a full flush (button 1) it wont
    come back on its own- only way is to press it again and then it comes back up.
    If you dont do this it constantly fills into the pan and never fills up cistern.

    With short flush (button 2) it comes back up on it own all ok.

    Does anyone know if there is a quick fix for this.
    I have tried replacing the entire button mechanism but it made no difference.

    Thanks for any help on this !
    Phil.

    Sounds like the flush valve needs to be replaced.

    Is that the middle section in the cistern or the part that connects to
    water inlet ? ie the miidle section or right hand side part.
     
  5. middle - it may just be sticking due to limescale/crud build up

    I have managed to get a replacement part
    is it easy to fit ?
    do I turn off water and drain etc how does it come out ?
    thanks.
     
  7. Is it demountable. Can you twist the main body off the base? If so you could try just replacing the body first of all. If that doesn't work then yes, cistern will have to be drained and separated from the pan
