    Question Tank will not refill normally

    After flushing our toilet, the tank will not refill...

    If I turn off the valve that supplies the water and turn it back on it works...

    I do have a replacement Fluidmaster 400A Refill Valve, but wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions before I replace it...

    Thanks In Advance...

    This from the Fluidmaster web site-

    3. Why won't my 400A Fill Valve turn on?
    Problem: Cap on top of the valve is not properly locked into place.
    Solution: Shut off water supply. Lift arm, then remove valve top by rotating 1/8 turn counterclockwise. Refit top by lifting arm, replacing top and rotating clockwise until locked. Valve won't turn on if top is not fully engaged in the locked position.

    Another possibility is a floating washer or debris in the shut off valve.

    Just noticed something else - must be some type of pressure issue...

    If you turn on the bath tub cold water, then the fill valve starts working...

    Any ideas???
