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: 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!

SOURCE: HOW TO REPAIR A LEAKY INSINKERATOR HOT WATER

What if you back the temp down to say 165 or so would that not keep the plastic from frying?
Also does that model not sit ambient until hot water is needed and is not "hot" 24/7/365 as you
stated? Just wondering.

Sunbeam hot/cold water dispenser is leaking from looks like copper tubing that goes to tank. Model # ylr-5-87h3 what could my problem be


Broken solder connection.
Continual expansion and contraction of metal due to hot and cold extremes will cause metal fatigue. The most vulnerable place is at the join. Other places can fail, but usually the solder join will fail first.
Buy another one and support economy.
Make sure next unit is connected to cold water line, and not hot water line. If hot water dispenser is connected to Hot line, then it will cause water heater to run each time water is drawn through dispenser because cold water immediately enters tank.

You might also consider installing small tank under counter. Tanks are less glamorous than hot water dispensers but tanks are more reliable long term than instantaneous water heaters.

Can anyone tell me why my ISE GN1100 Hot tap is spitting when the handle is pulled back to release the water?


Usually happens when the temperature is set too high, check your instruction book and set it to the advised temp. Also the filter in the nozzle may need a clean.

Water leaking from bottom of quick and hot dispenser only 18 mos old


I had the same problem. There is a 2 piece metal tank inside. The top and bottom of the tank are connected with screws & nuts, and there is a rubber o-ring between the two pieces. The grove for this o-ring is very shallow and it doesn't fit tightly, increasing the probability of misalignment during the assembly process. I was unable to fix the leak, IMHO the grove is too shallow and the o-ring is not thick enough. I decided it was poorly designed & trashed the unit.

Slow leak drips from bottom of 4 year old model


Hi

Please try and remove the cap by turning it clockwise and counter clock wise to remove it. If it doesn't come off then empty the water dispenser and use glue to fix the leak. See this link to see which type of glue should be used--- Glue Usage

Slow leak drips from bottom of 4 year old model


You can probably repair this by removing the fittings and replacing any plastic compression rings with new ones. Everything else can be cleaned with grade "0000" steel wool. This will get rid of any deposits without damaging the surfaces. ! or @ careful wraps of Teflon Tape to the MALE threads will help get a good seal.
