"My master toilet won't stop running, and I don;t know how to fix it, so I shut off its wsater valve and had to wait a week for my handyman."

Usually two things to check

1) First check , if you got a flapper valve, that it is down. Sometimes the 'chain' that pulls it up when you hit the flush lever gets disconnected - and winds up blocking the flapper valve from sealing. Take off tank top, and peer in.

2) The other problem is the 'mechanism'.... which, if not the flapper problem, likely needs to be replaced. That will require a handyman to do....20 minute job but you need the part.
