Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
I have a Simple Human 14 oz sensor Soap Dispenser that doesn't dispense and has a constant blinking red light. I changed the battery and added more soap. What else can I do?
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.

Unfortunately, I don't have a solution. However, I have the same problem. Only my blinking light is blue. This is the second dispenser I've had with this problem. I returned the previous one to the store where I purchased it. That was less than 6 months ago and now this one seems to be disfunctional too? I believe I paid about $40+ for it. Ridiculous.

Had the same issue where the dispenser wouldn't light up or dispense after putting in new batteries.
The problem I had was tightening the screw to the battery cover too firmly which was apparently changing the alignment of the contacts of the cover.
Loosen the screw up a little to make sure the battery cover isn't flexing and changing the angle at which they touch the batteries. Hope that helps!

Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to
allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door
spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the
door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer
(plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The
plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door
open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work.
Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the
connections to these.
Hope this helps...
