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.

SOURCE: Insinkerator instant hot water tank leaking

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.

SOURCE: insinkerator hot water heater takes a long time to dispense water

It may have mineral deposit buildup on the inside. You will need to consult your maintenance manual to see how to flush the unit and clear it of deposits. You can also contact Insinkerator for the information as well. You can use vinegar to clean it just like you would a coffee pot. Take the inlet supply off and using a funnel pour the vinegar in and turn the unit on.

SOURCE: How to replace heating element for InSinkErator W154 water heater

take the front cover off, it is just snaped on, there you will see it, depending on the age of the unit insinkerator will replace it for free, you just have to install it, but for the most part it might be cheaper to change the unit

SOURCE: Hi, my insinkerator hot water

I had the same exact problem. I looked up my purchase information and the unit is under warranty for 3 years (mine was 1 month out of warranty). I called Insinkerator 1 800 558-5700 and they were very willing to ship me a new unit for free. I found them to be very helpful, and willing to work with me. I just got off the phone with them and I can expect my replacement unit in 7-10 days (no charge). So I will install/replace my leaking unit. Good luck!

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:

Insinkerator has stainless steel tank but does not have anode rod to protect against depleted tank wall.
Leaking tank means broken weld, and you must replace tank.

How do I find the water leak in Emerson insinkerator H770-SS


The use-and-care manual says that the 'product will eventually fail,' and to install a drain catch pan.
The product has stainless steel tank with 3 year warranty. 1-800-558-5700.
The manual does not show parts diagram, element, or anode rod. This indicates that operation is inside a sealed 1-piece unit not meant for repairs.
High clorine content of water, and hard water, and water pressure over 80 psi will adversely affect any tank heater, and shorten lifespan causing probable leak.

Turn off power:
If you can remove cover from H770, then inspect 750 watt element for possible leaking. Then replace with new element of unknown type if element is leaking.
If leaking is coming from the tank itself, then the unit cannot be repaired. This is true for all tank water heaters.

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.
