Yeah, teagues, the problem with mine was/is the little metal rod that the spring rests against not locking into its holder to keep the flapper door open. The bent end of the rod locks into a recess in its track to hold the door open, seen here:

I added some lubrication to the tracks, red arrows, and worked it in.

I then turned my attention to the spring:

I used a little screwdriver and bent the spring out a little to add more resistance to get the rod to lock.

It worked, but not completely. The dispenser is working, but it is intermittent at times. I still have some tinkering to do with it to get it right.
