Flushing issues.... Boo !

When I flush the toilet and the foot pedal returns to the up position water will continue to run into the bowl. I then have to pull up on the pedal to get it to stop, sometimes it's a pretty good trickle of water, sometimes just a steady drip. Any suggestions for a fix?

Had ours do that, in our case the rinse hose had gotten caught under the rear of the pedal and prevented the pedal from freely fully closing. On the other side our pedal is still a little stiff and suspect that the return spring is weak. I've sprayed the pedal, mount, and pivot points with silicone spray it seemed to help a little. Just gotten used to pulling the pedal up with our toe when done.

ONe of these days Ill fix mine but it does that too.. Something is binding on the ring-around-the valve.. My solution will be to slightly enlarge the ring when I find the enlarger (Yes, I have that tool, designed for exhaust pipe but should work here too)

That happened to ours after I replaced the spring cartridge that is located behind the pedal assembly. It turns out I had tightened the screws that hold the pedal assembly in place a little too much, and it was binding the return spring preventing the ball valve from closing all the way and the water valve from completely shutting off. I backed off the screws about 1/4 turn and everything now works as it should.

I always likes to run a little extra water into the bowl and it took me 6 months of trying to press it lightly so water would flow but it wouldn't rotate the ball enough to open to allow it to leak out of the bowl before I figured out it lifted up and did that, haha

Could be some trash, sand or shavings caught up in the valve. If all else fails take the valve apart and clean it out.
