New toilet. All works well except flush handle. Press it down, toilet flushes. But handle won't bounce back up again on its own. We need to manually push it back up to prevent toilet water from running. Pls advise how to adjust this. Thanks!

Toilet handles are not adjustable to my knowledge. Take lid off of tank and make sure that it isn't rubbing and hanging against side or overflow tube in middle. Bend it away, if it is. The nut inside the tank that holds the handle on is left-handed (which means that it tightens on turning counter-clockwise to the left). I would not think that this nut would be the problem, but just make sure that it is snug. Good Luck!
