Question about Hamilton Beach Water Cooler with Storage Cabinet
The water cooler wont stop chilling the cold water. Normally, it would shut off once the chilled water has reaches a certain temperature, but now it runs continuosly. any ideas how to fix??
Hello! About 2 weeks ago, the same problem began on my Hamilton Beach water dispenser.
Last week, I called the HB service support, and they told me to do the following reset procedure:
1. Dispense 3 cups from the HOT water side, and also, 3 cups from the COLD water side.
2. Turn BOTH back switches OFF (the ones on the back of the water dispenser).
3. Unplug the dispenser, and LEAVE it unplugged for 24 hours.
4. After 24 hours, turn the back switches ON and plug it in.
5. Leave it on for 4 hours WITHOUT dispensing any water.
...it's been about 12 hours since I've dispensed water again for the first time, and so far, SO GOOD! I'll update if the problems reappear.

Model 87330 doesn't use compressor and freon, it is thermo electric

how old is the unit?
And what did it cost you?
It has a bad thermostat.
Try unplugging it for 5 minutes and see if it resets.
If it runs continuously the compressor will soon burn out and die!
If not do not spend more than half of what it cost to repair it!
This is the rule of thumb.
