How to clean/repair water cooler

I have a Hamilton Beach water cooler and it stopped heating the water a while back. Now the cold water side is coming out really slowly and the water tastes funny.

It could just be that the fuse is out. The fuse may be located on the outside back of your water dispenser or you may have to open it and find it.

For water cooler/heaters:

If it's not warming the water there is likely a bad thermal fuse or temperature sensor. It needs to be repaired.

If it's not cooling, you could have a bad compressor, a bad temperature sensor or a bad thermal pad (depending on if the unit uses a thermal pad or a compressor). Don't purchase stuff like this from Craig's List because you will end up with junk that doesn't work.

For taste/smell: Read the freaking instructions for gods sake. Clean the cooler with vinegar and water (just like any other water heating or cooling product including coffee makers). I can't believe how helpless people are.

BTW, for those people who obviously can't read instructions, you don'
t tag your question onto other people's questions, you create a new question. All you people who entered a question in the SOLUTION window are idiots. A question entered as a solution will not even show up as a new question and will likely never get answered. Lucky I was here looking for something else. I know it doesn't help that this site is confusing and hard to understand, but really if you read the instructions it's not that hard to use.

An RO drinking water air gap faucet would be the ideal faucet to purchase for your RO system. Here are a few options you can choose from that may come in brushed nickel: http://www.freshwatersystems.com/c-821-ro-drinking-water-air-gap-faucets.aspx

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.

Too much carbon in water


Sounds like a bad batch of filters. Stop using them and return them to Brita for analysis and replacement

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.

Brita filter needs replacement, but is stuck. any advice?


Hold filter cartridge in one hand and slowly turn on water. The water pressure will push the cartridge out of the housing.
