Our toilet flush button is stuck down, and the mechanism on the back doesn't appear to be attached properly.

It's a cable pull system.

Any ideas how it's supposed to be attached?

flush button


the other end

  • Do you have the name or make and model of toilet/flush mechanism? What have you done, have you tried to take it apart to see how it may work? – Alaska Man Nov 20 '20 at 19:05
  • What's the other end of the cable attached to? Have you looked to see if it's moving freely? – FreeMan Nov 20 '20 at 19:18
  • No makers mark. I don't want to pull it apart incase I can't put it back together. The other end connects to the central column, which is lifted up by a cable. I'll add that to the question. – spikey_richie Nov 20 '20 at 19:50
  • It might be a "PRO550UK cable valve" system. – spikey_richie Nov 20 '20 at 19:59
  • you probably should not be seeing all those threads in the middle picture – jsotola Nov 21 '20 at 2:20

I have fixed it.

I pulled the blue plastic section away from the bottom of the threaded section. The 2 plastic parts of the flush button sprung back up, and I clipped the blue section back onto the base of the threaded section. I will add pictures later.

  • It is fun to take things apart, Especially when you can get them back together. – Alaska Man Nov 21 '20 at 20:19
