Toilet adjustment


I have an American standard toilet and there is not enough water left in the bowl after flushing to keep the sewer gas from coming up. I would like to know how to adjust this, the manual for the toilet does not give this information. Thanks

is there a rubber hose connected to the top of the fill valve? If so is the other end dropped into the overflow tube?

As mentioned in post 2, make sure hose is attached to fill tube.

Sometimes the clamp rusts out or hose becomes dislodged/worn and needs to be replaced.
