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.

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.

Cold Water not squirting out cold water

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.

Hamilton beach water coller

hello chattie wm,

You said, the hot water side stop working,no hot water

This is usually one of five things.
  1. Check that the power is on at the breaker and the cooler has the proper light lit up that shows you it is on.
  2. If you have had it a while, (year or more) it may be that the heating element is covered
with minerals from the water which if it's hard water can happen too!

3.The heating element may be bad and need to be replaced.

4.The thermostat may be bad.

a.How old is it ?
b. What did it cost to buy?

You do not want to spend more than half what you payed for it to repair it!
Let me know how it goes and what you decide.

Thank you for using fixya,
Huum....Please remember to leave a rating!

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.

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.
