Why Is My Water Flosser Not Working?

Is your water flosser not functioning as it should? There could be several factors at play. Here's a step-by-step tutorial to help you diagnose and potentially fix the issue.

Symptom: LED Indicator Not On, Motor Not Running

If you notice that the LED indicator isn't lighting up and the motor isn't running when you power on your water flosser, there's a possibility that water leakage has damaged the PCBA board. In this case, it's advisable to get in touch with the supplier for repair or replacement.

Symptom: LED Indicator On, Motor Running

If the LED indicator is on and the motor is running, your water flosser might just need a little nudge to get back on track. Follow these steps to activate your device:

1. Uninstall and Prepare: Begin by removing the water tank and pulling out the suction pipe.

I recently bought my flosser. The green light is on indicating that it is fully charged, however, it is not serving its purpose.

I have to go back to my regular tooth brush but I need more help with my braces.

Please advise. Thank you.

Flosser comes on by itself and it won’t turn off. Pressing the off button does not work.

Antony - January 11, 2024

My flosser has just started randomly running on its own. No water in the tank and is in a drawer, suddenly starts running (not as anything else is able to touch the power button – (its layed down horizontally with the power button uppermost) and it’s difficult to switch it off. Pressing the power button doesn’t stop it despite several presses long and short. Has anybody experienced the same?
