Have a broken paper towel dispenser? Completely stumped as to how to fix it? Use this guide to repair your dispenser quickly and easily.
Open the paper-towel dispenser's cover using your Philips head screwdriver and turn it counter-clockwise.
Look for jams. Check every space inside the paper-towel dispenser for wads of paper towels. Remove any stray bits of paper towel that you find.
Tear off the paper towels just above the rollers.
Remove the roll of paper towels. Pull the lever of the paper-towel dispenser a few times to dislodge any remaining paper towels.
Replace the roll of paper towels. Make sure the roll is coming over the top towards you. Sometimes the paper towels will still come out of the dispenser if the roll is backward, but will tear off inside the dispenser and cause jams.
Feed the paper towels through the rollers. Pull the paper-towel dispenser's lever three or four times to make sure the paper is completely fed through.
Close the paper-towel dispenser's cover. Turn tool clockwise to lock. If there is a key, lock the paper-towel dispenser.
