Why Has My Touch Faucet Stopped Working?

A few reasons may be causing your Delta Touch faucet from working properly. The most common is the batteries have died and need to be replaced. See how to replace them below as well as what the LED status indicator light is telling you.

Things To Check:

  • First up is to check the batteries as they may have worn out and look at the LED light at the base of the spout.
  • Next, you may just need to reactivate the hands-free mode.
  • Check the handle to ensure it is open.

Delta Touch Faucet Battery Replacement

Delta says batteries last up to 2 years, some users are seeing much less, anywhere from 6 months to 1 year. The LED light on the faucet base will start to blink red when the batteries are low.

Steps To Replace The Batteries In A Delta Touch Faucet:

  1. The battery pack is in the cabinet under the sink.
  2. Open the top cap of the battery box and remove the batteries.
  3. Install your new batteries and note the correct polarity shown on the box.
  4. Replace the cap and battery box making sure the cable is free from obstructions.

Place the battery box flat on the floor under the sink to help ensure the faucet sensitivity is accurate.

What Size Batteries Does The Delta Touch Faucet Take?

The touch faucets take either 6 AA or 4 AA batteries depending on your specific model. The Touch2O for instance requires 6 AA batteries for it to work.

The battery pack can be found under the sink and should be flat in the cabinet.

Will A Delta Touch Faucet Work Without Batteries?

Yes, the faucet will work without batteries just like a normal faucet. You can bypass a delta touch faucet and turn it on and off with the handle.

If this doesn’t work for you, make sure the handle is in the on position and then remove the batteries. This makes sure the solenoid is in the open position so the faucet will work.

Where Is The Reset Button On A Delta Touch Faucet?

To reset your Delta faucet, remove the batteries from the pack and wait about 30 seconds. This will reset the faucet.
