The screw is very tight (you don't want it slipping ...). There IS a slot in the top for a flat-blade screwdriver. Try that. If it still won't turn, you may need to return the valve to Home Depot for an Exchange.

If you are referring to the black screw at the top of the valve then you may have tightened it too much and the threads have come out of the guide. Try backing it out while raising the bar under it this might
bring the threads back into play. If not then I would take it back and exchange it for another as you might have a defective product. Also they may refer to the adjustable pole that goes up and down

The level adjustment was easy on mine. Sounds like you might have a faulty item. If this is something you want to keep trying rather than a return, a small squirt of WD-40 might help turning the adjustment. I know you are afraid of breaking the plastic -- good luck.

It takes a little more force than I expected to get it to move. What you are really doing is pushing the roller over the little detent hump and then partially up the ramp, squeezing the hose partially close. It took some trial and error until I saw how it worked. Then it was one of those "Oh, I see" moments. ;-)

If the screw is not able to turn it may have become twisted at a slight angle in the float cup clamp. In such instances, you can gently pull the screw away from the float cup clamp and realign it, pushing it back toward the float to snap it into the clamp nice and straight.
To ensure proper water level, please be sure to adjust the PerforMAX fill valve (400ARHR) so the CL Mark is 1 inch above the overflow pipe. This is critical because if it is not, the fine tune adjustment of the float will not be able to make the intended water line. And also keep in mind that once the screw is at either the minimum or maximum heights it will not be able to turn further. Read Less

That depends. If the American Standard 4072 (Cadet 3 type?) has a fill valve in it similar to the PerforMAX, then yes, it will work. I haven't seen one of those types of toilets in person, but I would assume that the flush valve, and not the fill valve, is what makes those toilets different.

I went to the Icera website and it says that it takes a 3" oversized valve that goes into a siphon-jetted trapway. This is a $525 toilet on their site. My advice would be to contact the manufacturer and see if
it's possible or advisable to use another brand of flush valve.

Answer: 
The one piece toilets from Icera, in some cases, use an over sized flush valve (3 inch High Efficiency Valve) that may require a powerful refill valve like the Performax. To verify that the PerforMax will fit inside the tank make sure that the toilet tank lid will close when the valve is standing 3 inches taller than the top of the overflow pipe.

Performax Fill Valve is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from not as good as basic Fluidmaster Like other reviewers, when i needed a replacement fill valve, i thought the Performax would outperform the basic Fluidmaster but i was wrong. The Performax worked but louder and much slower fill time compared to original fill in my American Standard Cadet 3 toilet. It bothered me enough that i replaced the Performax with basic Fluidmaster and it was quieter and filled in 1/3 the time. Buy the basic 400a, not this version!
Date published: 2016-10-25
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plastic float fills with water and doesn't float After a few months of use valve began to run constantly. I noticed that the float was submerged and filled partially with water and did not float enough to shut off the valve. There are two holes in the bottom of the float and one hole in the top. Two halves of the float merely snap together and are supposed to be completely watertight which is an absurd expectation. The plastic itself has some buoyancy but not enough to shut off the valve, and why design a float such that it fills with water? I'm now amazed that the thing ever floated at all. I suppose the people at Fluidmaster think this is a robust design for a plastic float mechanism. I do not. Planned obsolescence?
Date published: 2016-09-24
Rated 1 out of 5 by from High-Efficiency? For Whom? This thing is garbage. Used this is a replacement for an actual Toto Fill Valve because I'd had good experiences for Fluidmaster products before. Mistake. I don't know what "High-Efficiency Toilet" means, in this situation, it means incredibly slow fill (90+ seconds versus the Toto OEM's) and noisy to boot. I've done a line flush and still no relief. Out of desperation, I pulled the whole thing out again and found crammed into the bottom of the fill valve, where the water line enters, a soft white rubber stopper with screw threads on it. It appears to slide upward when the water pressure from the inlet is above some amount and dramatically reduces the water pressure sent up the riser to fill the toilet. I'm looking for info on line to see if I can just pull the rubber thingy out. Failing that, I'll just pony up the extra couple of bucks and buy the OEM part. Save your money.
Date published: 2016-08-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed! We needed a flush valve for an older toilet and this one worked very well. The height adjusts to 15", which allows our tank to fill to higher water level, enabling it to have enough water in the tank to flush properly. Most valves only adjust to 14", which didn't work with our toilet. Easy to install.
Date published: 2016-08-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too slow Was very easy to install, but it fills the tank at an excruciatingly slow rate. I timed it at 2 minutes 20 seconds. It was not my supply line because I took the fluidmaster out and replaced it with another fill valve and the tank filled in 45 seconds.
Date published: 2016-08-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does the job. Installation was easy taking only about 5 minutes. I used this valve to replace the old fashion float valve with the huge ball. I would have rated 5 stars for quality but honestly, most plastic moving parts seem fragile however I must add, it is better than metal submerged in water and I was not concerned about breakage during installation. Actually, I was more concerned about the shutoff valve. Value? Do the math....It took a trip to Home Depot, 5 minutes to install and it works perfectly. How much would YOUR plumber charge? If you have seen one toilet, you've seen them all but I included three pictures to illustrate how simple this is...... ;->.
Date published: 2015-04-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightning Fast Fill Time! I had to purchase a new fill valve for my toilet that was taking 4 minutes to fill. Flushing the original fill valve did not fix my problem, so I needed a new unit. My old valve also failed to shut off sometime which caused my water bill to skyrocket. I came across the PerforMax valve and decided to give it a try, because I was sick of messing with my old valve and waiting 4 minutes between flushes. I installed this unit (very easy!) and timed my refill time from the second I pull the handle. It took 45 seconds from the time I touched the flush handle until the toilet went silent. Amazing! I'm probably going to replace the fill valve in my other toilet with a PerforMax as well.
Date published: 2012-08-24
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Noisy, Slow to fill I replaced my old basic Fluidmaster with the Performax Fill Valve thinking it would be more quiet and fill faster then the basic model, I was so wrong! The bathroom is located in my master bedroom and when the toilet is filling, it was so noisy I actually could not hear my TV! It is also a lot slower to fill than the basic fill valve. After 2 days, I couldn't take it anymore and switch back to the cheaper valve. Back to almost silent and quick fills. Definitely not the "Quietest" as advertise.
