You may be using too thick of a liquid in it palmolive is the worst to use in soap dispensers flush the head out with water if you remove the tube from it be careful alot of them have a ballbearing or spring inside or the unit is worn

Take it apart and clean it. If that doesn't work consider replacing it.

The soap pump dispenser from sink is stuck anyway to fix it or should I just order a new one. The pump releases too slow. I soaked in vinegar. I think it is a delta


The idea of using vinegar to clean off excess soap is reasonable, but not the easiest way. First try hot water (the best solvent known). Next try using a lubricant such as CRC or WD 40 spray on the sliding parts.

My soap dispenser wont pump soap


Are you out of soap? Does the pump go freely up and down? If the pump goes down a little and then stops its probably clogged. If this is the case just get a long piece of notebook wire and slide it through the pump and it may unclog it. Really a soap pump is a very simple set-up. Suction from one end brings the soap through the tube and out the actual dispenser. Hope this was helpful:)

My Grohe soap dispenser leaks under the sink. The bottle simply hangs off the pump. It looks like it should screw on the dispenser but there was no nut. Is this correct?


Virtually all soap/lotion bottles have threads on the top of the bottle and are designed for initial installation only since all if them are refillable by pulling up on the pump head. Grab the bottle and twist to the right. If it will not tighten then the threads are stripped out and complet dispenser replacement is required. Grohe does not sell either the pump assembly nor the bottle separately.

I have a Grohe soap dispenser and it has quit working for me. It is as if it gets stuck after you push it down and it seems to leak the soap out of the bottom part of the dispenser getting soap all over...


Sounds like there might simply be old soap caked on the inside of the dispenser head and feed tube. Best thing to do is have a sink filled with HOT water and just put the head portion in there to soak for a while. This should loosen the old soap enough to either dissolve or at least get it moving again. You can also take what soap is still in the dispenser out and put in another container, taking time to rinse the container with hot water as well and then filling it with hot water as well to test the pump action of the head, again using this action to help clean the insides of the pump. Short of this doing the trick, it may just be time for a new one. Good luck.

Plunger will not return to upright, so once it is depressed, you must pull it back upright


Sometimes the pump gets plugged with detergent residue. Take it apart and soak in hot water. Rinse all parts thoroughly and reassemble. If it continues to persist then it has reached th end of it's life. You will have to order a new one directly from Grohe if you want the exact finish. If you're not too fussy about whether or not the finish matches then your local plumbing supply dealer should have a universal replacement pump.

Dispenser will not press down


Unfortunelately for you, Grohe, does not offer pump head replacement to the best of my knowledge. The entire pump/bottle therefore will have to be purchased. You didn't mention what finish you had so if you plan to stay where you are for a long time I would suggest you look at the Rohl soap dispensers as an alternative. Their warranty is for 10 years and you can run a 3/8" I.D. vinyl tubing from the pump down to any size jug of soap you want under the sink and never have to refill it again from above. The finish might not be a match however.

My grohe soap dispenser won't pump out any soap.


If the soap dispenser is not pumping the soap then the soap is to thick. You need to then the soap down some so it will pump.

Soap dispenser leaks


You can fill these 2 ways.You can pull out pump from top,at sink , and squeeze soap in .Or you can unscrew bottle from under sink and fill, I'm thinking that your bottle is loose under sink, or the plastic neck has a hairline crack. Im not real clear on where the soap is comming from.Thankyou.
