    Hi all
    Our cistern has decided not to refill around one in three times having previously stuck maybe one in ten.
    To make it fill I just have to jog the thin plastic serrated shaft on the left (seepicture) This jogs the whole
    mechanism on the left and it immediately fills up.
    I'm thinking of replacing the whole thing but can't see an exact same thing anywhere. It needs to match up with the two push buttons to keep the same lid
    any recommendations would be gratefully viewed

    Change the lot for a fluid master flush kit if you can get the one with a brass tail on the full valve / inlet valve

    Does the flush part work if so then keep that as that will still work with the button you have then as above just replace the filler with a fluid master. Again as above if the flush doesn't work then replace the lot for a fluid master flush kit

    Looks like it's catching on the side of the cystern.
    Will just need turning slightly so it has free movement.

    Thanks for all the quick replies. I've made a note of the replacement but so far, having turned the blue part a bit anti clockwise it seems to be fine :)
