    Funny, I have the exact same problem. Today I went to pour some cold water, and it only drips. The hot water side is fine, but the cold water side is just dripping instead of pouring out. I tried a pipe cleaner and even turned it upside down and blew as hard as I could down the cold water spout. Nothing helps.

    We have the same problem with our water cooler at the office. We came in today and the hot water dispenser works just fine, but nothing comes out of the cold water side. The cold water light is not on either. HELP! This dispenser is less than a year old.

    We have the same problem at our office: the hot water flows just fine, but nothing will come out of the cold spigot.

To resolve this problem, unplug the dispenser and let it sit for about 24 hours. I had this problem happen to me and I took the unit apart to find out the cause. I discovered that the the water cooling mechanism developed a big chunk of ice inside of it and it basically blocked the flow water. Allowing that ice to melt should resolve this problem. It did for us.

I am having this exact problem. I cleaned it with vinegar and that worked for a day then the cold water stopped running again. The blue cooling light stays on all the time now. I find if I unplug the entire unit for 10-15 minutes I get cold water again. But it has to be unplugged again later because the cold water stopsrunning. I am going to try the vinegar again, straight this time with now water and let it sit for longer too.

Hamilton Beach 87330 hot water problem.

The two round "devices" on the tank are the operational thermostat, and the "safety" overtemp thermostat. It is usually the "operational" thermostat that fails, since it has to cycle a lot and arc internally. It is usually about 120-140 degrees F., and the safety thermostat significantly higher.

My hot water on model #87330 cooler has stopped working the switch is turned on in the back

Unfortunatly this is going to be a bad heating element or high limit thermostat, It's going to be cheaper to buy a new one or just make do with cold water. Sorry I can't be more helpfull but i worked on these things for a while and the company i worked for would rather buy new then put time effort and parts into a $100 water dispencer.

if I can be of any more assitance please feel free to comment again.

Hamilton Beach 87330 water cooler

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.'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.

Hamilton Beach 87330 water dispenser: no auto shut off

We purchaced this water dispencer about 2 years ago, everything was working normal, water heater works fine and the cooler would come on and go off normally,until you dispenced cold water and then the coller would cool down and shut of like it's supposed to.
Afetr a couple of years , one day it started cooling continuously and wouldn't stop, I've just shut the cooler switch off on the back of the unit until i can figure the problem out,unit #(87330).
I believe the problem is in the circuit control board, but with out further testing i can't be sure .

No Cold Water

Sounds like the fans have stoped turning for the cooling system. If you cannot hear the fans turn on when you flip the COOL switch this is your problem. Pick the fans up at a computer parts store like Frys. Any other part failure on this unit other than a loose wire is not worth repairing.
