I'm communicating with them. So far they've told me to ream out the holes and check the tube in the tank. Just curious if OP happen to find the solution.

I just used a KORKY replacement kit to replace the parts inside the tank. The rim jets did not work after this replacement. I found that the replacement gasket that the tank sits on was smaller than the previous, and was sitting lower inside the opening, blocking the two holes that lead to the rim jets. I took an exacto knife and cut holes at the base of the gasket to match up with the stream jet holes. Problem solved. Working great.

Re: Toilet Rim holes not working


I was experiencing this same problem with my Kohler toilet. I read through all the posts and found the last one by DIYBTRON. I removed the tank and sure enough the plastic threaded tube and rubber gasket were blocking the fill holes for the rim jets. I cut through the rubber with a sharp knife and then drilled two 1\2 holes in the plastic down spout part and voila, water now flowing from jets.

Re: Toilet Rim holes not working


Hey guys, so this is my first time ever posting to a blog but Ive just gotten so frustrated with my Kholer toilet and was having the hardest time even figuring out what to type in my google search to find the name to my problem so thank you all for posting. i now know the name of my problem and it is the issue with my toilet rim holes not flushing at all just a dry waterless attempt when i flush it. My siphon jet works just fine. I'm going to try and do all the suggestions mentioned in this post but if anyone has had any luck with Kholer or found a solution i would be greatly in your debt for it. Wish me luck! ill be checking back in by the end of the week for updates or to see if anyone has any solutions. Thanks!

Re: Toilet Rim holes not working


I just made an account to answer this question. My Kohler has had extremely poor flow to the rim holes, and I have been scouring for answers to no avail. I have finally found the solution (for me at least) and it is annoyingly simple. I found out that my toilet flushed just fine without the tank lid on, but poorly with it on. This was driving me nuts until I found out that the lid has a hole in the back and in the bottom so that when the water flushes, air travels through the lid to fill the void. My lid was tight against my wall which was blocking air flow to the tank, so that when the toilet flushed, the water did not go up the hose and into the rim holes easily. I repositioned the tank lid so that the hole in the back was not obstructed and voila, toilet flushes perfectly. Crazy.

Hope this helps others that may be having the same issue.

I had to sign up just to thank DIYBTRON for the info! I had my suspicions this was an issue, but wasn't sure. Really surprised by the lack of Google results about this issue, considering a common home Depot replacement with a common Kohler toilet has this compatibility issue... Not looking forward to separating my tank and bowl again 😑

Re: Toilet Rim holes not working


The orig poster theorized a manufacturing error......in which case, unless he just installed it, it NEVER would have worked. I was having flushing problems also.....and just spent like two hundred bucks on a new American standard cadet 3 chair height extended bowl. Easy install, flushes fast and well, no worries. Ron
