Angry toilet runs

Hello. the toilet was running and and not filling up. I changed the whole assembly inside (fill valve, flapper, seals, etc). It worked for a day. Now the toilet is doing the same thing. What else could be wrong? Please help. husbincrisis

Cut the ring out of the flapper base and use the ears (works better).
Clean the flapper seat with steel wool or SOS pad.
Shorten the new flapper chain to where it just allows the flapper to seal fully. Sounds like it may be kinking or hanging up.
Make sure that the water tube is clipped to the top of the overflow tube above the water line.
Good Luck!
