Answer . If nothing happens when you flip the lever, perhaps the chain is no longer connected to the handle. This is a common problem. Take the top of the tank off and m…ake sure there is a chain from the end of the handle to the flapper at the bottom.. If there is no water in the tank, you need to check the fill valve and float to make sure that there is water to flush it out with.. All these components are relatively easy to replace with a kit from a hardware store and simple tools most people already have. Many of the kits even include some teflon tape for the threads.

Check the flapper and re-adjust the fill height.
Toilet flaps are easy to change , just bend the ears around the handles and undo the chain to the flush handle then install a new one the same way. If you want to change the p…lastic or brass over flow tube assembly then it can be a little difficult. 1 shut off the toilet stop. 2 flush the toilet and hold the flush valve open so it drains most of the water. 3 unscrew the toilet supply nut ( water will spill out from inside the ballcock). 4 vacuum out the tank so its dry and then unscrew the 2 or 3 tank bolts . 5 pull the tank then unscrew the big nut on the over flow. 6 put a bead of silicon on your new toilet over flow rubber gasket then install it and tighten the nut, then do all the steps backwards and when you put your toilet tank bolts back in just for safety put a bead of silicon on your toilet tank bolt rubber washers and you shouldn't have any problems with any leaks.
More commonly called the 'flapper', it 's the valve that fits over the hole in the base of the tank that you activate when you press the flush lever.
The water supply line attaches to it on the bottom of the tank. The actual valve is at the top of this tube.
You would replace a flush valve or 'flapper' when it gets distorted or leaks slowly as they all eventually do. Take it out and go to Home Depot and you will see many better on…es than there were when your toilet was made. Average cost $6-10.
Take tank off of the bowl and replace it . Always install new tank to bowl bolts and washers and tank to bowl gasket. The flush valve is what your tank ball is conected too. I…f your talking about ballcock then you just take it out with out having to do the above. The ballcock is what lets the water come into tank. Always shut off water either way. If you cannot get the bolts to come lose you will have to hack saw them off, it will take a little while to do so but it works best. You will only use the blade it self and turn the blade around. And you will be cutting between tank and bowl and put something on the bowl so not to scatch the bowl like duct tape or what ever you have like this. and if you have a brass nut on flush valve under tank you will have to cut it also
