I had mine to do this once in awhile, so I would move the flush handle on the wall back and forth a few times and it would start working. I think the valva may have some calcium build up in it. I bought a new toilet system to cure this problem for good I hope.

So you're not getting water is the problem? Only reason I know anything about this at all is because of my buddies toilet in the BMC same problem and I know he had a valve sticking. It was accessed thru the toilet tank and all I remember is there was a DC connection there which seem to trigger the water to come on and off.

On our way back from picking the bus up in Dallas we had toilet problems and we messed with those connections and get it working. Never did make a definitive diagnosis as to the problem but maybe this might point you into the right neighborhood if not the right house.

Lift the top off the back of the toilet and see if there isn't an electrical component there and maybe disconnect and reconnect the wires.

My advice until some one who actually knows what they are talking about comes along.

Could be the air pressure regulator. If your toilet operates the same as the one we had (I replaced ours) the air pressure regulator is inside what looks to be the tank. Lift off the lid and listen for air leaking. The regulator is brass, about 4" long and about the diameter of a dime. Ours was a 60lb fixed regulator. None were available at the time I needed one. I called the local Clippard Valve distributor and they did not have one...so I purchased an adjustable one. Hook that up and played with the pressure until the toilet started working. Good luck.

I installed Clippard MAR-1P, 0-100 PSI regulator and adjusted to work at 60 - 65 PSI.

I see a red, white, blue, yellow, green and black hose but they all would be the type for air or water - nothing looks like an electrical wire. I jiggled the Devil out of the flusher but still nothing.

Check your 'Blue Box'...you may find the operation manual. Can you provide the Brand and the model number for your toilet?

Maybe your black tank is full, frozen or fouled...

Pictures would be helpful too.
