Also asked, what does the toilet handle connect to?
You'll see that the handle is attached to a long arm inside the tank, and that the arm is linked to a chain that lifts the flush valve. Note which hole the chain is hooked to (there are usually three or more holes on the arm) and then unhook the clasp that holds the chain to the arm.
Also Know, are toilet levers universal? A broken toilet handle or lever is a fairly common plumbing problem. There are also universal handles that will fit almost any toilet, no matter what type of toilet tank lever you currently have. With universal toilet handles, there are sometimes adjustments that have to be done to the handle to make them fit.
Herein, should I hold the toilet lever down to flush?
If You Have to Hold the Lever Down Completely to Flush the Toilet. One of the most common toilet problems is having to hold the flush lever down to flush the toilet. The problem is caused by too much slack in the lifting chain that connects the flush lever to the flapper.
Why won't my toilet handle come back up?
Check the Slack When you release the handle, the flapper should settle down into the flush valve, with just a small amount of slack in the chain. Turn the water back on (if you turned it off). Let the tank fill back up and test your work. If the handle is still sticking, you can take more slack out of the chain.
