Default Toilet plumbing part/issue

I have a discontinued toilet from Mirabelle. It is one of the duel flush models. It is model MIRGA241WH

The plunger in the flusher gets stuck in the up position and the toilet never fills and runs. I can sometimes whack the push buttons and get the plunger to drop but sometimes I have to twist the mechanism to get it to drop.

MIRGA8928 is the part number. Is there a way to find an equivalent part? I would hate buying a whole new toilet because I can't find the correct part.

Or is there another fix? I removed and cleaned up as best as I could and cleaned the hole where the plunger drops.

Stupid question but did you call Mirabelle directly? How about Ferguson since they sell mirabelle?

Yes, after a long series of run arounds and bad information we located the last one in Indiana. I ordered it for $57. I hope it was actually in inventory and not a mistake.

My guess is that the double flush toilets are somewhat the same but when I compared mine to the ones at the Ace store they were not exactly the same. This toilet has a real small tank.

After a thorough cleaning with hot water today the old one seems to not stick anymore. If it holds out at least - I hope - have a replacement for when it breaks.

don't think so. There is no place for a side flush. I think it may be possible for another double flusher.

Why not just replace the toilet. If the first part failed the replacement part is going to be the same design. There was probably a reason they stopped making that model.

Outside the pentagon I'd imagine there are few folks willing to pay their price for a crapper.

Go to a BigBox. A lot parts may look different but they are built to use standard fittings, holes and spacing.

Yea you're right in most cases but in this case they have an extravagant expensive cartage looking like part that they utilized to replace a common three dollar flapper.
