Insinkerator instant hot water tank leaking

I'm replacing my insinkerator and on top of the tank on the left is a quick connect fitting when I insert the copper tube into it, it locks in place, but when I turn on the water it leaks - I replaced o-ring and still leaks- when I air test the unit and hold the copper tube in a certain position it does not leak. What can I do? I would appreciate any suggestions.

    We ended up having to purchase another quick connect to go from copper to plastic and also a part of the quick connect on the tank was broken, but we were able to fix it. Thanks for your input, it was greatly appreciated and quick too.

When you cut the pipe it has to be cut square or it will leak . Try recutting the end of the pipe and then reinserting it. If this doesn't work then the only thing you can do is replace the fitting.

Insinkerator stainless tank does not have anode rod to protect from rusting. So these water heaters rust out at welds. And must be replaced. And this is frequent problem.
Copy following link for installing under-counter water heater and see manuals for various models available. Non-insinkerator water heaters have anode rod to protect from rusting:

I have an insinkerator hot water dispenser with stainless steel tank, and the tank is now leaking. I'm wondering if it can be fixed or needs to be replaced


Replace water heater if tank wall is leaking.
These things have short warranty period.
Stainless steel will theoretically last longer, but steel tank water heaters have replaceable anode rod to prevent rust-out.

Be sure to recycle the old metal.

Hi, my insinkerator hot water dispenser is leaking from the bottom screw. It is a couple of years old. Moder SST


My unit is 3 1.2 tears old. It started to delay the flowing of hot water. Today I held the lever down until hot water came out but I noticed water leaking from inside the unit. I figured that the tank failed, and since it was over 3 years old I decided to open it up. What I found was that there is a plastic tube at the top of the unit that was very discolored and brittle which developed a crack. when I touched it it completely severed. I called the Insinkerator hotline at 1800-558-5700 and they told me that opening the unit voids the warranty. I said that it appears to be out of warranty and I needed just the plastic tube for repair. The per on on the phone said that as a one time courtesy that a new unit would be shipped to me free of charge and that I could install it myself or they will have a tech do it. I opted to do it myself. Hope this helps

InSinkErator Instant Hot Water Faucet leaking from heater unit model #GN1100


Make sure that there is no leaks traveling down the hoses or at the connections on the top. The tanks can leak, if you have the Stainless Steel tank the following information applies - Stainless Steel Tank: 3 years, with an extended service plan available when installed by an InSinkErator Pro Circle™ plumber. I you product is under warranty I believe that you can call the number that is printed on the tank and literature.
