Simplehuman BT1017 Spout Sensor Soap Pump WON'T PUMP

After refilling the soap container, the pump would no longer work. Put in new batteries (double checking that they were in correctly), but it still will not pump soap, or even make a pumping noise.

How do I Install batteries in simple human soap dispenser


The hunt for batteries is over with the introduction of simplehuman's new rechargeable sensor soap pump. The newest sensor pump has a battery that recharges with a USB power adaptor, ensuring users of the product will have an "always-on" touch-free soap dispensing experience, every time. Do you have the port for the USB adapter on your unit? If so, you don't have to replace, just charge.

Fix simplehuman soap dispenser


Solution!!!!! to Simplehuman sensor soap dispenser with blinking red light no despensing of soap and new batteries. Rinse out soap with hot water. Fill reservoir with hot tap water. Use bulb end of turkey baster. Place on reservoir to form a tight seal. Force air into reservoir. Which will force the hot water thru the system unclogging the thick soap. Repeat this several times till clear of soap. Then turn on the unit and flush thru the rest of the hot water using the sensor till comes out nicely. Then fill with a thinned out soap. Good luck

Soap no longer dispenses automatically.


Mine would not work with the Costco brand (Kirkland) batteries. The light indicator came on but the pump did not work. Once I replaced them with Durcell, the pump started working. I'm guessing Energizer brand would work just as good.

Soap dispenser quit working


Need to flush it with fresh water. Fill an old soap bag (or whatever it uses) with clean water and let it flow as much as possible till empty.

I have a Simple Human 14 oz sensor Soap Dispenser


This is what I found in the Simplehuman FAQ's. I had to wait about 30 minutes for the light to stop blinking, but it seemed to work for me.

If the pump is unresponsive or the blue light is flashing, fresh batteries should resolve this issue. Please power off the pump completely. Once the pump is turned off, remove the old batteries. Please wait for the pump to reset (until the flashing light stops and preferably letting it rest overnight) before you install the new ones.
