Toilet won’t flush unless handle is held down

We have to hold the handle down on the toilet to make it flush, any quick fix ideas?

  1. I would suspect that the flapper assembly needs to be looked at or replace. Depending on the style some flappers have a float attached to the chain going to the flush handles. While others have the float built inside the flapper it self.
