Product Overview

This touchless kitchen sink faucet has a pull-down sprayer and a single handle with automatic motion sensor. It comes in a brushed nickel finish that helps resist water stains and fingerprints. The motion sensor is a highly sensitive infrared model that ensures exceptional convenience when using this faucet.

The sprayer is convenient because as soon as you pull the sprayer out of the faucet the water is automatically activated. The spout has a two function head which provides either a wide spray or a concentrated stream. The sprayer is on a 360° swivel which enables you to move it to wherever you need easily. It’s very convenient to turn the water on without using hands.

The sensor is powered by four AA batteries which have a working life of up to two years. Installation is extremely easy and can be accomplished within 10 minutes. The faucet is designed to fit one or three hole sinks. Using the included escutcheon, it is easy to convert the single hole faucet to a three hole sink.

This faucet has a 10 year warranty, which guarantees it against leaks or drips. Additionally the finish is also covered. If the faucets should leak or drip during the 10-year period, then the manufacturer will provide the parts necessary to restore it back to full functionality.

Troubleshooting your Touchless Faucet

Whenever you purchase a new faucet or technology, it’s always helpful to know how to troubleshoot it. Here are some of the most common problems and how to get to the root cause.

  • Slow water flow. If your faucet is experiencing a low water flow, then your water supply valve may be partially closed. If that is the cause then just open the valve more fully, and you should notice an increase in water pressure. If that does not solve the problem then it is possible that the aerator or the solenoid filters are clogged. Try to remove those and clean those.
  • If your LED sensor light does not flash and you are not getting any water coming out of the faucet, then it is possible that your batteries are expired or that they were installed incorrectly. Make sure that the batteries are inserted correctly and give them a little spin or rotation in the battery box to ensure a good contact with the contacts in the box. The next step if that does not work is to check the connections from the battery box to the various parts of your faucet to ensure that electricity is flowing where it is needed.
  • If your sensor light is flashing but you’re not getting any water, then your battery is probably needs replacing. Depending on your touchless faucet, the LED light will flash and different patterns to indicate low battery. However, if replacing the batteries does not help, there may be a short in the sensor or the connection. Test the sensor wire by carefully removing it and touching it with your finger this should cause water to flow from your faucet. If this works then there was a problem with the initial installation and the faucet itself. If it doesn’t work then the sensor wire may be broken.
  • If your faucet is leaky, then check your installation instructions to look for the valve dial. There may be some dirt in the valve that is causing a slight leak. If this doesn’t work, then try removing the aerator from the bottom of the faucet and clean it. Try to flush the aerator by turn the water on and off several times until the water flows clearly. Once that happens, reattach the aerator and you should be good. If there is a more significantly, then there may be a problem with the cartridge or disc assembly inside of your faucet. Consult your installation manual to see how to replace the various components.
