Well, Murphy's Law has struck again, here it is our last weekend before our seasonal campground is closed for the next 8 months and hubby went to depress the toilet lever and we heard a loud SNAP, it appears that the spring on the toilet lever has popped out or something. *We can operate the toilet but the lever does not snap back into the off position when you take your foot off it so for example when you are filling the toilet with water you have to hold the lever up and then also push down on it when you want the water to stop or the water would just keep coming - yikes

Hubby says so far when the incident happened the lever popped off and the spring fell out, he placed the spring back on and the lever but he cannot get the original amount of tension on the spring so it is useless - any suggestions on how to get the spring taught again, thanks for any advice. *We are winterizing tomorrow so would love to resolve the problem before then, otherwise we will be faced with trying to resolve it when we return in May.
We have a Seville 35ck model and I believe the toilet is porcellin and re were very pleased with the function up until now.

It is most likely a threatford toilet. I would visit their web site and see if they have any on line manuals.

Thought I had better update this post, thanks for the great tip to google the manual, I was able to find a diagram that helped and hubby managed to put it back together but I am a little bit concerned that it will happen again every time I depress the lever, once you see how the gears are put together it doesn't seem like a very strong set-up but I guess only time will tell and we have to wait another 8 months before we can de-winterize - sigh!
