how to unstick flush button on toilet

The flush button on my toilet will not move when I push it to flush toilet. I have to take the cover off and pull chain to flush toilet. This toilet is only a year old. What can I do to fix this problem?

Hello Cynthia22,


It sounds like the push button actuator may be defective. If you know what manufacture makes the toilet you may be able to call them directly to get a replacement the part. If not then you can take it out and try to match it up with one of the ones we carry.


Here is a link to a few I found on to see if any of them look like yours does. If you see one that looks like yours then click on the item and then you can click on CHECK STORE INVENTORY to see if your local store has it in stock.

A new push button actuator should get your toilet back in working order.


Let me know if you have any other questions. I would love to help.
