How do I set up my dispenser?  Each time you insert a new roll of paper towel you must "train" the dispenser to dispense either 1/2 or 1 full sheet of towel.  To do this, insert the roll of paper towel, leave a small portion of paper towel outside the the dispenser and close the door.  Innovia will automatically retract the paper towel.  Next, wave your hand to dispense paper towel, tear off 1/2 or 1 full sheet of towel.  Innovia will automatically retract the towel you didn't tear off.  From this point on, Innovia will dispense the amount you selected! 
Note: It is very important to dispense only 1/2 or 1 full sheet of towel to avoid retracting excess towel which can cause jamming.
Below is a video that will help!

      What if I need more than 1/2 or 1 full sheet of towel?  No problem! Simply hold your hand in front of the sensor and Innovia will dispense additional towels.
        Why doesn't the dispenser dispense paper towels after I've inserted the roll and closed the door? Rule number one is to always leave some paper towel hanging out when closing the door of the dispenser. That’s because once the door is closed, the internal sensor looks for the sheet of paper towel that should be hanging out. If it’s not there, the sensor thinks the dispenser is empty.
          Why won't the dispenser give me more than one towel at a time?  It’s still in “training mode”. “Training mode” occurs when you first close the door of the dispenser after inserting a roll of paper towel. The dispenser retracts the paper towel you left hanging out, and when you place your hand in front of the sensor it will dispense a length longer than a full sheet paper towel. This is “training mode”. It is at this point you “teach” the dispenser what length to dispense. When the towel is dispensed, tear off the 1/2 or 1 full sheet of towel and the excess towel will automatically retract.  The dispenser measures what it retracts after you take the towel and “knows” from that point forward to give you paper towels in that size increment. 
            What paper towels can be used with the dispenser? That’s easy: any standard paper towels that have perforated lengths of any size. In other words, any paper towels you can buy in the grocery store or supermarket should work just fine (see the question below for the one exception). Please do keep in mind that exorbitantly large rolls with a roll diameter above 6.5” may not fit at first. 
              Why aren't my Viva® paper towels working in the dispenser? Ah, Viva®. We do love your cottony softness but it’s the way your sheets cling to the roll that’s not working with the dispenser. To see what we mean, take a roll of Viva® and start unwrapping the roll. See? The sheets sort of cling together. Not that there’s anything wrong with that; it just doesn’t play nice in our dispenser. 
                Why do some rolls work perfectly but other rolls from the same pack aren't working as well? Well, that could be a couple of things. Firstly, make sure you round out the roll if it’s squished. Take out the roll of paper towels and look at it from the side. If the cardboard roll is not as circular as it could be, try and round it out a bit. Doing that should greatly improve performance. If you are still having an issue, another tip would be to flip the roll over in the dispenser so that it distributes upside down (so to speak). Both the “overhand” and “underhand” method of installing the roll of paper towels work equally well.
                  Will I set off the dispenser just by walking by it or by opening a cabinet door? Absolutely not. The sensor's reach is just 2 to 3 inches and rapid movement doesn’t trigger it. You must place your hand close to the sensor itself to break its beam and trigger the dispenser. The sensor was designed to avoid accidental dispenses. If you do accidentally dispense a towel: don’t take it. The unit will retract it back into its clean and sanitary compartment for later use!
                    Why does the dispenser keep retracting even after it’s pulled back the paper towel? This is the sign of dust blocking the lens of the internal sensor. This is an easy fix if it does happen (it’s actually quite rare). First unplug the dispenser (if it is plugged in). Open the door of the dispenser and look at the upper-half directly below the external sensor. You’ll see a tiny square hole leading to the sensor. Used compressed air to remove any debris or dust. That’s it! It should function just fine moving forward.

                      Under Cabinet FAQ

                      Will the dispenser fit beneath my cabinet? It should. The dispenser was designed to fit beneath the smallest standard cabinet available. If you have custom cabinets, or are still unsure, check the dimensions of the dispenser in the product manual or scroll down to the last question below.
                        How is the dispenser mounted? Quite simply. The gist of the process is this: using the included template, mark the 5 mounting hold locations, remove the template, and mount the dispenser’s bracket beneath your cabinet with the 5 included 0.4” screws (the screws are tiny enough that they should not break through the base of your cabinet - but you should measure to make sure). Once the bracket is in place, use the 6 included 0.6” screws to secure the dispenser onto the bracket.
                        Here is a video that may help for undercabinet or wall installation:


                          I have under cabinet lighting. How do I…?  Yes, under cabinet lighting can be an issue. Depending on the type of lighting you have, it may be possible to remove a strip of it and install a shorter strip, accommodating for the dispenser. Another option is to remove the strip lighting from beneath the cabinet under which you plan to install the dispenser and use the puck-shaped lighting instead. We’ve also had customers install thin-strip LED lights.
                            Does the Under Cabinet unit take batteries:  No, the under cabinet unit must be powered by the AC adaptor, included with the Innovia dispenser.
                              What are the dimensions of the Under the Cabinet unit? The dimensions are as follows: 14.1 inches wide x 10 inches deep x 7.5 inches high.

                                Does the Countertop unit:  Yes! The countertop unit was designed to be portable and can be powered by the included AC adaptor or by using 4 D batteries (not included).
                                  What are the dimensions of the Countertop unit? The dimensions are as follows: 7.5 inches wide x 10 inches deep x 16 inches high. You can see a diagram of the dimensions in the product manual in the Support section.
