Why is my Kohler touchless faucet not working? (Simple Tips)

It was a beautiful morning last winter, and I noticed that my Kohler touchless faucet not working. I am so frustrated because I have no idea why it’s not working! The water keeps running when I get close to the sensor, making me feel like something is wrong with the sensor or some other internal component of the faucet. This blog post will tell you about Kohler touchless faucet troubleshooting and solving this problem!

The LED sensor light is not working and there’s no water coming out of the faucet? 

This could be because your batteries are dead. Make sure you installed them correctly (inserted in one direction) or may need new ones! Check for leaks around joints where two pipes meet by pushing on those areas with your fingertips before replacing them if necessary. A thorough cleaning would also do wonders at solving this problem since dirt can accumulate easily inside these fittings over time without much notice from anyone until suddenly something breaks off into oblivion due to corrosion build-up.

To fix this problem, you need to remove the cover from the battery case, examine it, replace any needed connections, and then put everything back together.

No Water coming!

If the LED sensor does flash, but there is no water coming from the faucet, replace batteries. On some touchless models, five times every four seconds to indicate that they’re low and need replacing! A flashing light may also indicate a short in your installation or wiring harness – cautiously remove black wire connecting it with washer by touching end while observing for flow before removing completely if this solves problem too.

For slow water flow, please adjust the valve!

If the water flow from your faucet is slow, adjust the valve. A clogged faucet could cause slow water flow, an old aerator with minerals build-up, or even something as simple and cheap to fix. If adjusting doesn’t solve anything else, there may need replacement parts like solenoid filters (sometimes called aerator) depending on the model number of fixtures – see what comes up online if unsure about how easy this fix might be when looking into getting new ones installed professionally done.

You should be able to find the leak by dripping water and watching for signs that it’s coming from your faucet. If you do not, adjust the dial on top until a drip stops while activating it several times with each adjustment to stop any more leaks completely!

Once you have taken care of any issues by turning off the water supply and removing dirt filters, turn it back on. Once activated, flush out all remaining sand or grit with some activated sensor flushes before reinserting your aerator into place at the bottom faucet.

How to Check the Status of the Battery Pack?

The LED light on the base of the faucet turns blue and red depending on whether it is cold or hot. If there are low batteries, then a flashing red light will occur every 5 seconds.

How do I turn off the touchless function?

The faucet should turn off when you move away from the sink.

How do you get the touchless faucet to remain running?

The setting on your faucet can be adjusted to keep the water running.

Do all touchless faucets have batteries?

To run the sensor touchless faucet generally have a pair of batteries.

How to Diagnose the Solenoid Valve?

If you’re getting red flashes and the battery seems to be working, replace the solenoid valve. To remove the existing solenoid valve, first, remove the batteries from the battery pack. To replace a leaky faucet, you will need to remove the wire extension. The wire extension from the faucet body plugs into a solenoid valve. When installing a new solenoid, make sure you ground yourself before touching the connections; otherwise, it could cause an electric shock.

How to Bypass the Solenoid?

Remove the batteries from your spade clips and unplug the black box that’s connected to solenoids. You should now be able to easily take off any covers on it with screws or snaps while also being in manual mode because you need a positive terminal for one thing at least!
