I had the same problem and just fixed it by taking the lid apart and putting it back together.

The first step was to unscrew the bottom part of the lid.

The second step was to force the center "pop top" back up. I did that by pushing screw drivers into the two large channels in the underside of the lid.

This got the lid to the point that it would go to the open position again, but when I closed it, it would jam again.

Next I removed the center pop top piece by prying back some of the four catches that keep it from coming out of the lid. I then straightened a little spring that looked to be bent. I put it all back together and now it works well. How to unjam the lid to an OXO Good Grip Pop Conta - unjam-lid-oxo-good-grip-pop-container-litsqjxkvr3lxcnrqpjpgh3e-5-2.jpg

    Great explanation. Alas mine doesn't have those four catches anywhere visible, it's a circular thing not a squarish thing covering the spring. Hard to see how to remove it.

    Thank you for this!! I love the containers and thought I was going to have to toss it - and it's one of thr larger ones. I followed your outlined process for dismantling the lid and saw the bent wire right away. I straightened it and it's good as new!

I have the round button variant. The button was stuck down. Removed gasket plate by unscrewing from main lid. Released the button by using a butter knife to push in on the gripping clasps you can see through the underside of the button. It would still sick though when used.

Pulled button out from the top by gently squeezing and rocking it out. On the inside bottom of button there is little metal clasp that looks like a paper clip. Make sure both legs are parallel and aligned and that there is still a small gap between them (roughly 1/8 inch). The legs of this clasp fit into the plastic bit that controls whether the lid locks down or pops up. So fiddle with that and it should be the fix.

Repair for Bent Lock Button Spring - OXO Good Grips Containers

  1. Disassemble the lid by unscrewing the inner sealing portion of the lid in the opposite direction of the arrows molded into two of the corners, then remove the inner lid cover by using the finger holes on each side of the cover
  2. With the locking button in the up position - from the sealing side of the lid (bottom) use a small flat-bladed screwdriver to pop the four locking tabs loose on the locking button and push it out of the lid. (You will have to look into the mechanism and locate where the tabs lock the button into the lid). Don't use excessive force, as you can break the tabs off.
  3. When examining the locking button interior you will see a small U-shaped spring with a 90-degree bend on each leg.
  4. The small bent portions must line up and the legs must be straight for the sealing mechanism to function. Adjust or straighten the legs.
  5. Reinstall the locking button in the lid while holding it flat with the seal side down.
  6. Test to make sure it works, reassemble the lid in the reverse order of disassembly. Note that the inner lid cover has two locating tabs or buttons that fit into depressions on the lid mechanism to lock it in place.
  7. Recheck for proper function.

Check the OXO on the lid. If it's at all diagonal, it needs to be force twisted back into place. You can pry off the center square cap on the other side and look inside to see the spring and slot. That will tell you which way it needs turned. It takes a bit of torque, but they snap back in place.

Installation of lid seal


Typically the lid seal has an opening all around the center and it must face up and fit inside the lid, once is fitted inside the lid cover, lubricate the bottom of the lid seal with soapy water and place it on top of the pump casing. Then apply pressure at the side tabs to snap the lid back in place, note that you may have to use a big C-Clamp to be able to put the lid back on.

I can't get the lid back on because of the seal. Can you help?


The lid seal has an opening all around the seal. Make sure the opening faces up inside the lid, there is a groove inside the lid where the lid seal sits in place. Once is placed correctly on the lid, lubricate the lid seal with soapy water and then place on top of the pump casing and just put pressure on the side tabs so it snaps in place. Note that sometimes is required to use a C-Clamp to put the lid back on.

Beofre you go to the extent of buying a replacement canister, you can remove the top and using a straightened coat hanger type thing open that bottom lid. Then maybe you can clean the rim and possibly add some silicone spry to loosen things up. Here's how to get inside In this order: 1) Remove the canister 2) remove the three star screws at the top of the canister. It'll take a bit of pressure to pull the top up, there's a rubber seal. When you pull it up there will be a rod running down into the canister, leave it be, just pull up the top high enough to clear out any debris. 3) Use a straightened coat hanger and with a flashlight to guide you, reach down with it and push it into that hole down at the bottom center of the canister. That will pop the lid open. Clean the canister & lid rims, maybe add some silicone. At this point you might as well clean the canister too. OPTIONAL-> ***leave the bottom lid open*** and follow the rest of these steps 4) Put the top back on aligning the screws, when you lower it make sure the bottom of the rod engages with the hole at the bottom center of the canister, this is why you left the bottom lid open. Put the three star screws back in. 4) Turn the canister upside down, lid open, and keeping in mind this is thin plastic, gently tug upwards on the four fins that surround the bottom rubber seal. This part is held in by friction, so work your way around the four fins gently pulling until you work the ring they're connected to free. This will give you access to the inside of the canister. 5) remove the round perforated section by tugging upwards on it, set it aside with the fin part. 6) Take the canister to a laundry tub or large sink and holding it bottom up fill it with hot/warm water. Grasping the center section shake it vigorously and turn it upside down while shaking and a bunch of sh*t will come out. Repeat several times. 7) Dry thoroughly, you might use a hairdryer held to the center tube, but only if you can switch off the heat and use air only. Make sure its 200% dry, water will kill your machine 8) clean and replace the round perforated section 9) replace the fin section, I'd suggest pulling the round rubber part off of the fin part and setting it in place on the canister first, then follow with the plastic fin part. If you don't do it this way the rubber won't seat properly and the bottom lid won't close. 10) Close the lid, replace the canister, and staaaaaart suckin like it's brand new.

The clean dish rinse solution in both drawers leaking out


Your seal aroud the top lid is bad causing the leaking. It is supposed to press down against the groove around the top of your wash tube to seal properly.
1- You need to take it out to inspect the seal, if it flare out, then it need to be replace.
2- If it is OK then your lid actuators on the both sides are faulty. They are supposed to bring the lid down, but either one side is broken then the lid is improperly sealed causing leakeage.
3- The Lid seal is sold in the whole Lid with installed seal together with holders from both sides.
4- The Lid actuators are sold in pair.
Good luck in finding the root cause.

When closing the cover very slowly do you feel at the very bottom before it "closes" a slight resistance?You should have to push it down to finish the movement. Simply let the lid rest on your fingers and lower it into place, if there's no resistance just at dead bottom then the physical tab attached to the pegs of the cover may have broken off. The swich to "close lid" is probably internal by the lid joint.


Check to make sure the print carriage isn't snagged either. any little piece of anything can cause problems.
Good luck.
