Touchless Kitchen Sink Faucet Battery Replacement

touchless kitchen faucet battery replacement

Modern technology has merged with kitchen faucets, resulting in the creation of contactless faucets. They are easy to use and only require movement in front of a sensor to trigger the water flow. They make everything from rinsing dirty hands to scrubbing dirty dishes much easier.

If your contactless faucet needs a battery replacement to keep working, you’ve come to the right place. Read on for a guide on replacing the batteries in your touchless faucet.

What Is A Contactless Faucet?

A contactless faucet is a great addition to your kitchen for a number of reasons. You can rinse dishes, wash your hands, clean the sink, whatever you need to do without touching the faucet itself.

Some contactless faucets are more sophisticated than others; some combine heat, sound and motion to trigger the flow of water, while others rely on a single form of input. With contactless faucets, there is no need to move a lever to turn the water supply on or off. Once motion is detected, the faucet automatically opens and allows the water to flow.

Touchless faucets are often confused with touch faucets (also known as touch technology faucets). Touch faucets require physical contact with the faucet body to trigger the flow of water, while touchless faucets are hands-free.

Replacing The Battery

Countless brands make touchless faucets, such as Zurn, Chicago, Delta, Kohler and Moen. The method you can use to replace the batteries in a touchless faucet depends on the brand of faucet you have. Since Delta, Kohler and Moen are some of the most common household brands, let’s take a look at how to replace the batteries in these three touchless faucets.

Delta Touchless Faucets

Replacing the batteries in your Delta Touch faucet is quick and easy. If you have a flashing red LED on your faucet, this indicates that the batteries are low and need to be replaced.

Start by locating the battery pack in the cabinet under the sink. Once found, pop open the lid of the battery compartment and remove the batteries.

Replace the old battery with a new one, noting the correct polarity shown on the box. Then, put the cover back on the battery box. Make sure the cable is free of any obstructions.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Where Is The Reset Button?

There is not technically a physical reset button on the Delta Touch faucet. To reset your faucet, follow the steps above to remove the batteries from the package and wait approximately 30 seconds. This will reset the faucet.

How Large Of A Battery Does The Delta Touch Faucet Require?

Generally, touch faucets require 6AA or 4AA batteries, although the size depends on the model.

Kohler Touchless Faucet

Replacing the batteries in Kohler contactless faucets can be slightly more complicated than with Delta faucets. Kohler has developed several types of contactless faucets, each with a different battery removal process.

Replacing the batteries in Kohler’s Malleco faucets is easy. Simply remove the battery holder from the mounting screws with a screwdriver, then disconnect the battery holder wires from the power cord connected to the valve box.

Then, press the tab on the cover to remove it. Remove the old battery and replace it with a new one. When finished, reinstall the battery cover. Put the battery holder back in place with the mounting screws and reconnect the battery cable and power cord, making sure not to pinch any of the wires in the process.

If you have a Kohler Barossa faucet, first disconnect the green wire connector from the valve box. Then, slide the battery holder off the valve box, press down on the tab, and remove the cover. Replace the old battery with a new one. To reinstall the battery cassette, reattach the cover and slide the battery holder back into the valve cassette. Reconnect the green wire connector and you are ready to use.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What size batteries do Kohler contactless faucets use?

Again, the size of the batteries depends on the type of faucet. Some Kohler faucets use two AAA faucets, while others use six AA batteries.

Moen Contactless Faucets

Replacing the batteries in your Moen MotionSense contactless faucet is easy. The blue LED at the bottom of the faucet will flash to let you know that the batteries are low and it’s time to replace them.

First, find the battery pack in the cabinet under the sink. Then, open the cover of the battery pack and replace the old battery with a new one. Close the top cover, and you’re ready to go.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What size batteries do I need for the Moen MotionSense faucet?

Moen MotionSense faucets typically require six AA batteries.

Where is the reset button?

Resetting a Moen MotionSense contactless faucet is a simple process. Before you begin, make sure the sensor on the faucet is completely unobstructed and that there is nothing that could interfere with it.

Then, locate the gray or black control box under the sink. Disconnect the power from the control box, which may be a battery pack or A/C adapter. Disconnect the data cable from the control box.

Wait a minute for the control box to reset. Plug in the data cable and do the same with the power cable. Let the faucet sit for at least two minutes to allow it to recirculate. The blue light near the sensor will flash twice, indicating that the faucet is on and working properly.

How long do the batteries in a contactless faucet last?

The battery life of a contactless faucet depends on the size and type of battery required for the faucet. However, the average battery life for contactless faucets is usually 1 to 2 years.

What kind of batteries do I need for a contactless faucet?


Many non-contact faucets work with alkaline batteries. One of the most common faucet brands, Kohler, specifically instructs that their non-contact faucets should not use rechargeable or lithium-ion batteries.

If you are unsure which batteries your system requires, refer to the owner’s manual. If you don’t have an owner’s manual, or if the faucet was installed when you moved into your home, check the battery compartment for the specific type of batteries needed.

You can also check online to see what kind of batteries your faucet needs, but you will need to know the make and model.
