water leaking INTO toilet

Recently I have found my toilet bowl full of water a few hours after flushing. It started suddenly. WHY? How do I stop it?

sounds like the valve is probably sticking and not stopping the water. You should disconnect the water hookup outside or turn off the water pump till you replace the valve or toilet.

We had a similar problem. I replaced the valve. I don't think they are repairable. It was pretty easy to change, just turned off the water, disconnected two hoses and two screws holding it. I was afraid I would need to pull the whole toilet, but found with a little stretching I could save some extra work. I used the digital camera to get the model # off the tag in the back, and to access how to remove the valve.

Welcome to irv2. I once had that happen and a little Vaseline on the valve solved the problem. It was sticking.

I removed the valve and found the stem dirty. I cleaned the stem and made sure it operated freely and reinstalled it. It last for about a year and I had it replaced along with all the guts of the flush system.
Good Luck

Do you have a separate sprayer for the toilet? Ours was doing the same thing and the hose for the sprayer was routed in such a way it got caught under the back side of the foot pedal preventing the pedal from completely shutting off the water flow. Rerouted the hose problem solved.

When our water valve failed, I plumbed in a ball valve shut off valve using "Shark Bite" fittings and used the valve to control water flow till we could get a replacement valve. As stated above, the valve, at least on ours, could be changed just by kneeling down and reaching behind the toilet - a quick and easy task.
