Too much toilet paper or foreign items being flushed down the toilet can cause obstruction in the drain and clog the toilet. If there is no visible sign of a blockage, then most likely the drain pipework is blocked.

Cistern Low Water Level
Your tank or toilet cistern is what stores the water to flush your toilet. If the water level is too low, then your toilet won’t flush away. Internal parts to your cistern, that can cause low water levels, are inlet valves and outlet valve assemblies. A skilled mater plumber will be able to identify the cause of the fault and rectify it easily. A common sign of a faulty outlet valve is water running into the bowl. A common sign of a faulty inlet valve is low or no water in the tank.
Damaged Cistern Parts
Internal parts to a cistern can be delicate parts to replace. Without the skills in removing and replacing cisterns and cistern parts, you can easily damage the internals to your toilet and cause more damage. Often cisterns need to be completely removed from the pan to be able to access parts. If done incorrectly, more damage can be done causing more expensive repairs than were initially needed. Consult your local Master Plumbing Professional before attempting to DIY repair your toilet.
