Why has Cream Treatment Dispenser's Lotion Pump Stopped Working?
What are the possible reasons?
Soap Dispenser Stuck: Some pumps lock abnormally. Opening it the right way might save you the trouble of dealing with a damaged pump later. Many soap dispensers lock up when you push the pump all the way down and turn it 90 degrees. You can unlock the pump by rotating it back to its working position.
If that doesn't work, remove the pump from the bottle, rinse the shaft, and dry. Then you will firmly grasp the shaft under the pump collar and twist it firmly to the right. This will turn on the pump, put the pump back in the bottle and you are ready to use the new product.
Possibly damaged spring: The spring is installed in the pump reservoir. While it may not be possible to use every dispenser, some bathroom dispensers allow you to separate the reservoir from the lid. You can unscrew it and replace it with a new spring from any hardware store.
The pump won't dispense any soap: the pump may appear to be working, but you're not getting any soap. Check that you are out of soap. If there is still soap left, the pump's dip tube may be too short to reach the bottom.
In some cases, the allocator itself is blocked. The soap may have dried out in the tube blocking it. You can try taking the pump out of the bottle and washing and drying it for reuse. It almost always helps with any kind of blocking.
If none of these procedures repair your pump, it may be because of damaged internal seals. If this is a commercial dispenser or one built into the sink, you can take it apart, find the damaged part, and replace only the damaged part.
But if this is a consumer-grade stand-alone soap dispenser, chances are you won't. They are too cheap and too cheap to fix.
