Toilet runs

I just installed an Everbilt ballcick fill valve. Initially it worked but now it seems to make noise. If I raise the float by hand just a hair the noise will cut off. The blue screw at the top can be tightened to the point that noise will stop yet it won’t fill. I also notice that when really loosened up water leaks from the https://m.imgur.com/gallery/Klw1U9Htop of the fill valve.

Looks like you can adjust the float arm as well. Try a different angle so that more pressure is put on the stop valve. Also make sure the overflow fill tube is not interfering with the float arm.

Is the height of that valve adjusted properly, not just the angle of the float? It looks like you can see the old water line on the tank wall in the picture and the water in the tank is not close to that line.

Forgot to also say – look for a manufactured mark on the tank wall which shows the proper level for filling. You want your tank to fill to that level for proper flushing. Less than that can lead to clogging.
