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.

Hello mmmm,
Welcome,
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.

You said ,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 continuously. any ideas how to fix??

    For the guest that posted that they had the cooler for less than a year.
    If you bought it new,then you should have a 1 year warranty.
    Call the number in the user manual or in the papers that came with the cooler and they should rectify your problem or replace the unit!
    If it was from Home depot or any large box store they will let you return it or exchange it with a receipt!
    Thank you for using our site.

    Another guest

    Said,my cooler doesn't get cold, what I mean is the water isn't as cold many
    other coolers it's just above tap water. I looked for adjustment screw
    or switch with no luck.

    It sounds like a bad thermostat or low freon.
    If it's new return it.
    If you plan on fixing it.
    Do not spend more than half the cost of the cooler!

    Let me know what you do!
    Thank you for using our site.

Do water filters get out 100% of the bacteria or small particles in the water?


even if you get the top of the line water filter on the market, it will probably say that it is only 99.9% effective

I have included a link below to a video that explains how this type of fitting works. If you are using plastic tubing with these fittings you may be able to remove the tubing from the fitting and cut back about ½” from the end of the tubing and reinsert it into the fitting. Do not cut the tubing with scissors, use a tubing cutter or razor blade knife (see video). If that doesn’t solve the leak and you find that you need to replace any fittings we have a complete selection located here: http://www.freshwatersystems.com/c-276-fittings-valves-tubing.aspx

GE smartwater R.O. system leaking out weep hole


Same exact problem started for us last night. (Same model, installed by me about four+ years ago) Water was really coming out of the weep hole, and didn't stop until I shut it off at the valve. This happened once before, and all I had to do was clean the drain line adapter, because it gets full of gunk from the disposal over time. But this time that did not do the trick. (Plus there was not all that much gunk this time....) So I was baffled for awhile but came up with this solution.

I hooked up a small length of clear tubing to my cheap-o tire inflater/air compressor. Put the clear tube against the weep hole. Turned on the compressor, and VOILA!, a bunch of gunk that was clogging the drain tube came out. I think when this tube, or the drain line adapter gets clogged, it causes water to go out the weep hole instead of down the drain. (If you don't have a small compressor, then theoretically there is enough air pressure from something like a bicycle pump, and this solution *might* work with one of those. But if you try this, of course only use the DOWNWARD (air-going-outward) pump action...pulling up (inward) would force the clog deeper up the drain tube)

I have a ge reverse osmosis filtration system and recently lost pressure and tank capacity. I have only had the system about a month and my water has been tested fine. I did leave town for 10 days, could...


Make sure that all valves are in the open position.
Try to recharge the water storage tank. Here are the steps to follow.
* In General: When any type shut-off valve handle is positioned so that it is parallel or in line with the tubing that enters the valve, valve is OPEN. When handle is turned perpendicular to tubing that enters valve, valve is CLOSED.

Necessary Supplies:
1) Tire Gauge marked in 5psi increments (ie 5, 10, 15, 20psi, etc.)
2) Bicycle tire pump for standard type bike tire valve
To recharge RO system tank:

1) Close cold water feed valve (valve located at some point along the cold water line from street plumbing).*
2) Leaving RO tank valve on, turn tank on side & locate valve stem on bottom side.
3) Remove stem cap.
4) Drain all water out of tank through open RO faucet into sink. (Continue to leave RO faucet open throughout procedure)
5) If current tank pressure is insufficient to empty tank, apply tire pump to valve stem and pump 10 – 15 times. Exit flow will increase and then gradually decrease as pressure equalizes. Do not overcharge internal bladder of tank during this
procedure.
6) Repeat step #4 until tank is completely empty. (Tank is empty when additional pumping produces no more water)
7) At this point, adjust EMPTY tank to exactly 7psi. (Gauge reading midway between 5 & 10psi is sufficient)
8) Turn off RO faucet.
9) Replace cap on valve stem and reposition tank in upright position.
10) Open cold water feed valve.*
11) System water is useable immediately, however, tank will take 3-4 hrs to completely refill.

GE smartwater R.O. system making noise from hole on side of fauce


Probably some gunk clogging the drain line. First step would be to remove the drain line from underneath the sink and check to see that it is clear. If it isn't, the next thing that may happen is when it gets completely clogged, water will start shooting out of the weep hole. As an added measure< i would say to force compressed air down the weep hole to clean out any clog in the line that you can't reach.
